Weddings: Then and Now!

Having been in the wedding industry as long as we have, we have seen some things in our day!  Whether it’s watching wedding trends come and go, seeing design styles change as quick as some people change boyfriends, or experiencing the evolution of social media as a major player in how clients plan their big day, we have seen it all.

Wedding Wire, one of the major leaders in anything and everything wedding, is celebrating their 10 year anniversary and recently blogged about how things have changed since they launched 10 years ago.  (you can read their blog here).  And since we are coming up on our 17th anniversary (I know, can you believe it, 17 years!!!), this got us thinking, what have we seen change since we started in 2000?
