2. Go Green.

Do flowers ever feel too sweet? Fill your centerpieces with kale and cabbage instead (like this creation from Blooms by Breesa Lee) for an unexpected twist on the greenery trend.

3. Say “I Do” at a Brewery.

You don’t have to like beer to fall in love with a brewery. The Wood Shed’s industrial-boho space (left) is connected to Vista’s Booze Brothers Brewing Co. and The Mission Brewery’s Loft & Cellar is rustic elegance defined.

4. Give Black Suits a Break.

Black may be tried and true,  but navy is a classic hue that will amp up any groom’s style (this pic from Half Full Photography is proof).

8. Let Your Hair Down.

Updos are nice, but textured wispy layers cascading down your shoulders make for a bombshell mane event that’s a little more wild, like this au naturel look styled by the Boudoir Divas.

9. Light Up Your Night.

Candlelight can only go so far. Set your wedding aglow with a custom light installation, like this luminous backdrop at Ayisha and Matt’s reception, photographed by SheWanders Photography. (See more of Ayisha and Matt’s big day!)
