Wedding Salon New York - Event Highlights

WEDDING SALON STUNS COUPLES WITH A 360° PHOTO BOOTH AND TOP WEDDING TRAVEL HOTSPOTS

Over a thousand New Yorker’s attended Wedding Salon at Manhattan NYC, An Affinia Hotel on Monday to plan their destination weddings, local weddings, and honeymoons. Guests were stunned by the fashion forward, modern and unique wedding offerings; including an OSCAR award style 360° Photo Booth, a celebrity electric violinist playing modern hits, and hot travel spots from all over the world.

Hot Wedding Trends Emerging from Wedding Salon this season:

1.Photo Booths are a top booking priority: It is very rare to attend a wedding these days without a photo booth. Wedding Salon connected couples with the buzzed about Style360° Photo Booth by CircleCam straight from LA Oscars parties to traditional booths by Magnolia.

2. Luxury Travel Hot Spots:  Lisa, a newly engaged bride said, “Meeting the actual tourism boards for Aruba, Puerto Rico and Mexico really helped me. The tourism boards have the best advice for the real industry hot spots and even the hidden gems the travel agents don’t know about yet”.

Wedding Salon also highlighted travel destinations such as Jet Set Getaways, Allegro Resorts, St. Regis Aspen, Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach and much more.

3.  Vintage-Style Wedding Venues:  Venues offering vintage and natural wedding styles just a drive away from NYC got a lot of action. Couples raved about Blantyre, a castle-like country hotel. While Fearrington Village, Helsinki Hudson and Linwood Estate highlighted the appeal of luxury weddings with southern charm.

4. Beauty/Fashion High Lights:  Wedding Salon fashion Nicole Miller gowns decked out in A.JAFFE jewelry under a canopy of silver dollar eucalyptus, garden roses, dahlias, orchids. (Canopy florals by Dellables – Hawaiian Florist & Hair and makeup by Brush Chic).

5. Non Traditional Desserts:  Modern cake and wedding dessert experts are stressing that cakes are not the only way to serve dessert. Carlo’s Bakery buffet, La Maison Du Chocolat, and Ben & Jerry’s are just some of the other great options for switching up your desserts in a tasty way.
