Sumptuous Sleeves

Hints of Color

We are extremely excited to see more pops of color in the 2023 wedding season. Many brides will decide to experiment with hues on their wedding day. Hints of colors will be seen not only in embroideries but also over the entire length of the gown. Pastel blue and pale pink are the two most popular choices by wedding designers.

High necklines

Mock necks, inspired by royal style are one of the biggest wedding trends of 2023. They give an elegant and polished look. As the high necklines might look a bit modest, designers pair them with lace, floral detailing, open back, and sheer elements (or the whole dress!).

Wedding Dress Embellishments

Floral elements

In 2023 floral decorations are taken to another level, the 3-D level. We will see more modern designs, more dimensions, and more oversized embroideries. The floral lace will add a whimsical element to any traditional wedding dress. Those elements are a perfect choice, especially for spring brides.

Mini wedding dress

With micro weddings on the rise in 2023, we will continue to see a surge of contemporary designs like mini dresses. It’s the perfect choice for brides who look for something non-traditional and are not afraid to show some skin on their big day. Those party-ready designs will definitely become more and more popular in the upcoming wedding seasons.

Sheer Accents

In 2023 we will see a big comeback of delicate gowns that feature utterly sheer fabrics and sheer layering. This accent creates an illusional style and goes as far as the almost completely transparent, “see-through” elements with fabrics like lace, chiffon, silk tulle, and organza.

Bye-bye, sepia-looking photos, non-conventional angles and perfectly prepared poses. Say hello to ‘bright and airy’ photographs, a lot of natural light and capturing some candid, genuine moments. It’s all about the personal touches to bring the whole experience closer to the couple’s values.

Recently we observe a new trend emerging on TikTok and Instagram. A lot of creators go for retro-looking, blurry photos and wedding photography is also a part of this trend. I a lot of couples look for photographers skilled in dramatic candid shots this year.

Micro wedding parties

Even though the pandemic is officially over the small wedding trends are about to stay with us for longer. Many couples want to avoid potential problems related to planning, big expenses and all the hustle of a big wedding. They are less concerned about doing their wedding ‘just for show’ and prefer to spend this time with those who really matter.

Eco-friendly wedding details

In a few years, more and more couples try to host their wedding responsibly and incorporate sustainable practices during the reception. This means using local products and cutting back on unnecessary waste. Also in 2023, we will see a surge of sustainable, raw, and natural wedding decorations, farm tables, or biodegradable materials. Wedding venues are becoming more green, full of flower decors, and plastic-free.

Why You Should Visit the South of France in Winter

Why You Should Visit the South of France in Winter

winter cote dazur

Originally, the French Riviera was seen as a winter resort for the British upper class at the end of the 18th century. In the meantime, the Côte d’Azur has become the world’s first-holiday destination. People from all over the world come to visit this unique and splendid place in every season, including hot and dry summer, as well as mild and sunny winter. Although many of you know multiple reasons why French Riviera is just the most amazing summer destination, non all of you might see it as a perfect winter escape. We will walk you through the most important reasons why you should visit the South of France in winter!

Should Visit the South of France in Winter

Winter on the French Riviera is less Busy 

Winter is a perfect time to enjoy all the beauty that the Côte d’Azur offers and benefit from having this amazing space almost for your own! Well, you’re never entirely alone in the South of France but the winter season is much calmer and quieter.

In addition, you will appreciate finding easy parking more quickly, walking into your favorite restaurant without a reservation, having a picnic on an almost empty beach, or taking multiple photos in the most well-known locations without other people ruining it or having to wait for your tour.

Visiting the French Riviera during winter you will see a totally different side of this unique place. More charming, more magical, and still.

South of France in Winter

Skiing in the South of France? Yes, it’s possible!

Not many people know that the winter version of the Côte d’Azur has its hidden side. Only about one hour drive from Nice you can find many ski resorts that offer amazing views (even on the sea!), as well as all-day fun, delicious restaurants, and magnificent chalets. Imagine playing on the snow during the day and finishing it in the cozy bistro by the sea. Only on the French Riviera!

Nice and Sunny Weather all (off-)Season Long

They say that the Côte d’Azur along the Mediterranean coastline benefits from almost 3,000 hours of sunshine a year… The South of France has its own little microclimate; in effect, it stays warmer and drier than other places.  In fact, it’s the hottest part of the whole of France. The average temperature is about 14oC in winter and rainfalls are pretty rare.

 Just enjoy the Mediterranean warmth and go on a coastal walk and admire the beautiful scenery.

The weather in the South of France is perfect for a wedding

The most popular time to get married in the South of France is from May to October. The weather in the South of France during this period is mostly hot, dry, and sunny. Late spring and early autumn are less hot, but the temperatures are usually still very pleasant with little rain. Your outfit choice should certainly match the climate of your destination. Attending the wedding on the Côte d’Azur gives you plenty of possibilities to wear the most beautiful, delicate dresses and more casual suits.

French Bridal Fashion

The traditional French wedding dress (la robe de mariée) looks a lot like the simple white or off-white American one with a train and veil. The thing that catches the eye is the effortless yet chic style of French brides. They use a minimum of accessories and let the luxurious fabric, manufactured exactly like an art piece take the lead.

Consider the Wedding Venue

The location of the wedding ceremony should also guide the choice of your outfit. While deciding on what to wear to a destination wedding in France you need to consider what type of venue it’s taking place and what kind of ground you’ll be on. The South of France has a lot of beautiful by-the-sea venues, medieval castles, and rustic private villas. Some of them are surrounded by lawn or sand so you will want to stay away from stilettos. Wedges are the safe and perfect choice for outdoor weddings.

Wedding Attire in France is Simple yet Classic

If you watch French people and how they dress, you’ll quickly notice that they almost always appear to have just stepped right out of a fashion magazine, but their style comes naturally.

The guests in France are expected to dress up. While attending a destination wedding in the South of France better avoid anything too short, too low-cut, or too tight. The more conservative cuts are more in favor. The most important thing that you should keep in mind while choosing your wedding attire is effortless, chic, and quality.

An important thing to remember, in France white and its equivalent colors like ivory, cream, and champagne are reserved for the bride.

There is something quite special about organizing your wedding in France. Hiring a local wedding planner is the best solution for a couple looking to celebrate a destination wedding.

Garden Wedding Ideas

First of all, welcome to the Garden Wedding! From Frances Hodgson Burnett’s children’s novel “Secret Garden” to the brand new Netflix series “Bridgerton”, the beauty of nature seduce with its mystery and timeless aesthetic. In 2021, nature will be the best backdrop for every special occasion as outdoor weddings rise in popularity. In Avalon Events Organization we embrace this trend and we must say: We love it!

Namely, if you’re dreaming of saying “I do” in romantic scenery, there won’t be a better venue than a splendid, broad garden with astonishing nature, peaceful corners, and fresh, fragrant air. While Mother Nature has already provided natural inspirations, we used its benefits to prepare some inspirational garden wedding ideas!

Intimate Wedding 2021

Enchanted Garden Wedding

To begin with, isn’t it more desirable to organize outdoor weddings during these challenging times? Use the healing power of nature! You can create an elegant celebration filled with romance and make your guests forget about any worries for a moment. Let your garden wedding be your happy place where only good things happen. Wedding inspired by Jane Austen’s novels, “Secret Garden”, or even “Finding Neverland” allows for stunning floral decorations, fabulous candles, and dreamy hanging floral installations incorporated into natural backdrop elements. For instance, using traditional decor and gold or pastel colors we will achieve a real fairytale aesthetic!

Outdoor Wedding Tents

Accordingly, wedding tents are the perfect complement for garden weddings, but also form a unique shelter for your guests in case of bad weather. What’s important, the forms and decor options are practically limitless, depending on your needs. Specifically, the most popular styles are freestanding tents set up on frames, sailcloth and pole tents, tents with sidewalls or plastic, transparent ones. While arranging the interior we love adding some natural components from the garden like stunning overhead floral installations, hanging flowers, natural light coming from candles. Do you want more? What about bringing trees INSIDE your tent? Immediately, magic atmosphere guaranteed.

Romantic lighting – light the Garden Wedding up!

Twinkle lights amongst the trees, shrubs, and flowers? Beautiful lighting installations or stark bulbs? A sky full of stars? With a little bit of imagination (and our expertise) everything is possible! The glow of romantic lighting will add charm and magic to your garden wedding. This year, outdoor weddings will lighten up by hanging candles and pathway lights that create a fairy-tale-like ambiance, bistro lighting to add a bit of charming twist, or by string lights to create a Christmasy atmosphere.

Garden Wedding Decorations on a Big Scale

Briefly, there is no such thing as too much flora, especially when we talk about having a garden wedding. Floral accents can sneak literally everywhere – from the backdrop to paths, entrance, tent interior, or tables, chairs, centerpieces, up to the wedding cake, invitations, or your romantic wreath! Don’t be afraid to use, besides flowers, also other foliage like leaves, succulents, or garlands.

Outdoor Wedding Fun

Currently garden weddings give a lot of possibilities for funny games and fancy installations. We propose bringing out a bar or gelato station and prepare some lawn games. The chill lounge area in the hidden corner of the garden will be a perfect place where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of the wedding celebration and spend some time alone with your beloved one. The possibilities are endless!
