Just like fashion, trends and styles of weddings come and go. The bride and groom should not feel that they should have a 'fashionable' wedding, but some couples like to reflect modern trends.
Wedding magazines can provide ideas and inspiration for the reception.
The couple should also speak to the chosen suppliers and ask to see photos of other weddings that they have done.
The photographer will also have been to hundreds of weddings; ask them about their favourite days.
Remember the chosen style and theme; little details can be added to create a contemporary feel.
