Atlanta weddings bring together friends and family to celebrate marriage and the start of a new life together. The wedding reception is an opportunity for couples to show their appreciation and support for all attending. Many couples want to create an enjoyable reception experience as an important aspect of the wedding. Read on to learn more about wedding reception trends for Atlanta.

Fresh Colors

Selecting the perfect colors for your Atlanta wedding and reception requires an exploration of capturing the spirit of your personal style and taste. For others, it is simply the matter of choosing your lifelong favorite colors. Fresh colors trends for 2014 include joyful brights and blissful pastels such as mint, orchid, coral, teal and yellow. Trendy combinations include peach and blue, coral and teal, plum and gray and pink and black.

Elegant Lights

Lighting helps set the mood and character of your wedding reception. Lights lend to creating a subdued ambiance and romantic atmosphere. Ideas for elegant lighting include arranging multiple elongated white wax tapers in silver candlesticks along the center line of banquet tables. Scatter tea lights in clear or colored glass around the centerpieces displayed upon the reception tables. For outdoor receptions, wrap clear string lights around trees and overhead for a starry night effect or use round paper lanterns strung from branches or hanging from above providing a dreamy quixotic environment.

Southern Charm Venues

Atlanta offers many beautiful options for your wedding reception from graceful gardens to stately mansions. Plan a beautiful garden wedding reception at Glendalough Manor, a facility dedicated to offering an environment of peace and tranquility. Enjoy the metropolitan elegance presented by The Peachtree Club featuring a skyline terrace with city views amid an intimate setting. Host your wedding reception at the historic Callanwolde Fine Arts Center, a Gothic-Tudor style home built in 1920 featuring a grand staircase and great hall. The Atlanta Botanical Garden features include an enchanting rose garden, terrace, canopy walk and outdoor kitchen.

Fascinating Centerpieces

Showcase your Atlanta wedding reception with eye-catching centerpieces. Popular trends include submerging orchids or a single rose inside water-filled glass cylinders. For a rustic southern charm look, fill mason jars with wildflowers. Floral arrangements never go out of style; trends include tall crystal vases filled with a mixed assortment of flowers in your wedding colors. Create a custom look with decorated wine bottles, each glowing from small portable LED lights placed inside.
