From Al Fresco to Food Trucks: Calgary wedding trends for 2015

While the act of falling in love and committing to each other doesn’t really change, the way that we celebrate weddings certainly does. From the food and flowers to dancing and décor, wedding trends present fun ways to personalize your big day. As Calgary wedding caterers with our ear to the ground (and head in the planning), we want to share some of the hottest wedding trends we’re seeing.

It was a beautiful September 1st and a perfect day for a Calgary outdoor wedding at The Southern Alberta Pioneers Association.  We had met the lovely and beautiful bride several months earlier and enjoyed planning the menu and the special details of the day along with her mom.  

Their outdoor wedding ceremony was followed by a cocktail reception on the ridge that included passed hors d'oeuvres with gin and tonic and old fashioneds as the specialty cocktails.   Once the couple returned from having their photos taken, an oyster bar opened and guests continued to enjoy the afternoon sun while the bride and groom were congratulated by all their guests.
