LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Millennials have taken weddings to new heights. They are spending more, receiving less, dressing differently, eating better, coordinating more efficiently and partying much harder.
“Over the past few years, we have seen an average increase of $10,000 for millennial weddings. Our clients are ditching churches and building their own venues in industrial settings. They are giving back to the community asking for donations to their favorite charities rather than hosting registries,” said Jenny Chang, Founder of ROCKNEVENTS.
Attire: The style of wedding dresses is still very individual. Brides choose what looks good to them and their setting, and really varies from wedding to wedding. In regard to groomsmen and bridesmaids, we observed a transition from short to long sundresses for women and a strong consistency with Tom Ford suits for men.
Cuisine: Food adventures have been on the rise along with: oyster trucking, raw coconuts and custom catering from the couples favorite restaurant. Celebrity chefs, build-your-own desert stations and luxury culinary experiences is drawing the attention of millennial foodies.
Entertainment: Take the Bridal Chorus to a whole new level with electric violinists, drummers and pianists that can play multiple instruments at once using any limb available. Millennial wedding DJs are now pressured to mix music while playing a foot pedalled instrument all while engaging the crowd.
Invitations: One of the most exciting parts of a wedding is bringing your family and friends together. As a result, there is usually an age gap that requires invitations to be tailored to both. Millennials are leaning toward paperless, online website invitations rather than traditional direct mail. Website invitations are ideal for deciding which events to attend, what individual preferences are and getting your messages/updates out as efficiently as possible. For more traditional guests, sticking to the envelope invitation is your best bet.
