2015 Hottest Wedding Trends

The Look

There's a strong spirit of individualisn in the air this year, with couples really being keen on infusing their ceremonies and receptions with their own personalities.  The Bride and Groom want it to be magical and dreamy and for the most part they just want their guests to have fun.  The result of individualism means the actual day will reflect the bride and grooms taste and will show their uniqueness.

What are the Wedding Trends We're Seeing?

The trends that I am seeing for weddings this year are garden parties, loosely styled floral centerpieces, vintage lace and cloth, lush garlands get turned into table runners, and the Victorian era. I see lots of shades of white or ivory with a burst of color like poppy red, and emerald greens. The ballroom here at the Hereford House is very romantic and it falls within these upcoming trends.  Our column lights look like you would see the same lights walking down the streets of London, England.  Hereford House at Terradyne Country Club looks forward to hosting your dream wedding!

Happy Wedding Planning!

We will Treat you like Royalty

Catering 101!

Don't call the Hereford House if you want the ordinary, call the Hereford House if you want extraordinary service, mouth watering food, attention to detail, mentoring advice from the beginning to end of your event, and stress-free planning!

Tips for choosing the perfect catering service!

My favorite advice from the start is with the intial contact of the catering manager is it someone who enjoys what they do? Do they sound as excited for planning the event as you are? When you get over the initial introduction then start in with your details.

Most catering companies will give you a low quote and then you find all of the hidden fees. We have nothing to hide here at the Hereford House. I will give you a proposal that includes taxes and gratuity so you, the client, can see excatly what you owe. Also ask the catering company what is included in the actual price of the dinner. 

Here are some questons that you might want to ask.

  • Is water, coffee and tea included in the price of the meal?
  • Does the china come with the price of the food or if not what is the price per dinner plate, salad plate, utensils?
  • Are tabelcloths included, what about napkins?
  • Is there an upcharge for anything?

I hope this information helps you out while deciding on the next caterer to host your event. 

HAPPY WEDDING PLANNING!
