With year-round warm weather and sunny skies, Tucson is an ideal location to say “I Do!” Loews Ventana Canyon‘s Catering Manager, Audra Barrios, shares the Top 3 Current Wedding Trends.

1. Unfrosted Cakes

Couples are beginning to stray away from elaborate decorations and lean towards a more natural and organic aesthetic when it comes to wedding cakes. Unfrosted or “naked cakes” have been popular on Pinterest and are showing up more frequently at Tucson weddings. Top it off with a few fresh berries or flowers, and you have a unique way to showcase the natural beauty of the cake and all of the love that goes into it — while still making a statement on your big day!


2. Afterglow Lighting

After the ceremony is over and the cake has been cut, it’s time for the party to get started! As it gets later into the evening, couples enjoy turning down the lights, turning up the music and transforming the party into a nightclub-like atmosphere with Afterglow. Walls, tables, and even furniture are lit with coordinated colored lights that create a fun and hip bonus celebration!


3. Signature Cocktails

Show your guests a little about you and your new spouse with signature cocktails. Tucson couples enjoy showcasing themed drinks to welcome their guests to their special day and introduce themselves as newlyweds. Whether you choose a flirty drink for the bride and a manly drink for the groom, or a drink that signifies you as a couple, signature drinks are a great way to personalize your wedding and incorporate your color scheme!
