Premier Wedding Venue in South Charlotte Ensures Modern Weddings Are Trending

Event Manager of the Renaissance Charlotte SouthPark Hotel Gives Insider Insights Into the Evolution of Wedding Planning

CHARLOTTE, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- As peak wedding season is now upon us, wedding venues in south Charlotte prepare to host brides and grooms from all over North Carolina. Erin Bockelman, Event Manager at the Renaissance Charlotte SouthPark Hotel assures couples receive a contemporary, yet timeless experience. Here she shares some of the hottest trends she is seeing in wedding receptions this year.

"Social media is huge in wedding planning," notes Ms. Bockelman. "For brides today, everything is about what they see on Pinterest. Pretty much every single girl has a Pinterest board for their dream wedding," she adds. According to Erin, "they pin everything they want to have and then figure out how to do certain items on their own to cut corners and then save money for the nicer, larger upgrades." This has ranged from unique table numbers, to programs and favors, on up to an elaborate centerpiece. It all depends on the client and the amount of time they have to spend on each particular item.

A major change in the wedding planning landscape that Erin has noticed is keeping the wedding ceremony and reception in a single venue has become increasingly popular. This graciously accommodating boutique hotel in Charlotte, NC provides brides with twelve surreal venues for wedding receptions and ceremonies in south Charlotte -- an idyllic space for couples to turn the dream from their Pinterest board into an unforgettable event. At the Renaissance Charlotte SouthPark Hotel brides love the outdoor courtyard for their ceremony and find having everything in one location is convenient for everyone involved.

Once the venue has been perfectly appointed for the bride and groom's distinctive style, Erin mentioned a few other noteworthy trends. Plated, sit-down dinners are still the preferred option among wedding food service. Erin tells us, "when you have an intimate setting, there is still something familial and elegant about sitting down and taking the time to enjoy dinner together." With Renaissance Charlotte SouthPark's creative catering options, couples can design a menu that's as aptly tailored to their style as the venue and evokes the familial intimacy that Erin recommends.

Ms. Bockelman shares that in recent years, short-term bookings are more commonplace. Couples can reserve one of the most breathtaking hotels in Charlotte, NC for their ceremony and reception without pining on a years-long waitlist. "Seeing a wedding book only three to six months out is not unusual these days," she muses. But that doesn't mean brides should wait to start planning their dream wedding at the only venue in south Charlotte that can live up to the expectations of their special day.

There’s a common misconception that the process is just about technology, but it’s not. It’s about your business. It shouldn’t be treated as an isolated IT project; it should be driven by business needs with the committed involvement of a range of stakeholders.
