Cakes & Sweets

Posted by edisonfordwinterestates On August 6th

Brides are looking to dazzle their guests with more than just taste, they want their cakes to reflect their wedding theme or to represent a piece of themselves. Some brides even skip the cake altogether and choose to have cupcakes or petit fours instead. For the bride with a sweet tooth, adding a desert bar along with their cake is a fun and creative way for their guests to enjoy dessert all night long! Check out some of our favorite cakes and dessert bars.

Flowers are essential to any wedding. Who doesn’t love seeing the bride’s bouquet when she’s walking down the aisle? While bouquets are a fun way to get creative, they can also be very expensive.

Bridesmaids Dresses | Southwest Florida Weddings

Posted by edisonfordwinterestates On June 23rd

In the past, when it comes to picking out bridesmaid dresses, bridesmaid dresses have always been the same to match perfectly from one bridesmaid to another. Now, we see that the dresses can all be different as long as they are coordinated to the colors and theme of a wedding. This allows bridesmaid’s to show their personal style and feel comfortable, just like everyone should at a wedding. Take a look at the bridesmaid dresses we have seen at Edison & Ford Winter Estates.

1. Mismatched Dresses

Having bridesmaids choose their own style of dress is becoming an increasing trend. Many brides will pick out the color of dress and then have her bridesmaids to chose any fit, allowing them to show off their own sense of style.

Having bridesmaids in the same style but in different colors is another popular and fun trend!

 

2. Short Dresses

Short dresses are perfect for a sunny Southwest Florida wedding!

 

3. Black Dresses

Black is a classic and timeless color that looks great on every girl and allows the bride to really stand out. Brides have chosen to keep the black dresses simple or dressing them up by adding a pop of color with the girl’s shoes.

 

4. Comfortable or Trendy Shoes

Wearing comfortable shoes is a must for an outdoor wedding and your bridesmaids will thank you for it. However, if you want a less casual look, a small heel with a fun pattern is also a great choice for your bridesmaids.
