The popular farm-to-table trend is continuing to influence people across America, and we are encountering more and more brides that want to opt for an artisanal wedding experience, without appearing to be dowdy and out-of-date. If you are desiring the elegance of a Crystal Ballroom wedding, yet want to communicate your love for all things natural, we stand ready to help.

Greenery is a huge trend this year, and that plays well into the plans for an elegant, but natural wedding. Many florists will be able to include not only seasonal blooms, but also fresh herbs like rosemary, mint, and lemon balm in bouquets and centerpieces. To take the farm-to-table trend a step further, many brides are opting for table runners of ivy, magnolia, and freshly cut ferns in lieu of centerpieces.

The farm-to-table trend can be showcased by utilizing the services of an outstanding caterer that will take advantage of fresh, locally sourced options. Work with him to establish a menu that is pleasing to the palate and your budget.

Consider serving your meal family style. Nothing means more to you than the presence of these people, some of whom have traveled great distances to be with you. Face-to-face interaction is a precious gift to them, and nothing can demonstrate your hospitality better than if you sit, eat, talk, and laugh together.

Instead of having an open bar, consider asking your bartender ahead of time to create a cocktail in your chosen wedding colors using organic fruit puree’ from locally grown produce. Or, choose to serve only local labels.

Our staff at the Crystal Ballroom is standing by to help every couple plan the wedding of their dreams. Whatever style wedding you choose, contact us to learn more about what the Crystal Ballroom can do for you!
