There are certain things that make every bride happy on her wedding day: Her groom arriving on time and sober, her perfect dress and of course, her reception looking better than she imagined. The first two…pretty easy, but the third you are trust that someone will make your vision, your wedding dream a reality. Of course you know Collin, Preston but do you know Marc? If you don’t, you should.
Marc Wilson of Marc Wilson Design combines light, sophistication, whimsy and dramatic lighting to create breathtaking locations and spaces for your wedding. There are samples of his attention to detail and style in the slideshow, but they don’t do him justice. He is truly just that good.
I caught up with Marc at his studio for a few moments to discuss the upcoming bridal season. Marc, tell me about the trends you see happening this year?
“If you think about home décor trends over the last few years, all those colors the pantone forecast colors have made their way from the pages of magazine and those charts through the fashion industry and now more and more in the event design industry. So I pay attention to those, but I also work with the bride to make sure on her wedding day she isn’t disappointed.
This season the colors I’ve seen include honey gold/yellow, warm olive, burnt sienna, Rapture Rose, American beauty. These are some really beautiful colors and I have created great combinations for the bride that wants to be a little more daring and get away from the very traditional ivory linens. For a winter wedding why not go with deep Amethyst and Gun Metal (silver)? It would add unexpected richness and warmth to the reception. I often recommend that they go bold and make a statement at their reception. For the 2010 spring season, the more popular colors include Tomato Puree, Fusion Coral, Violet, Tuscany, Pink Champagne, Dried Herb, Aurora and Amparo Blue to name a few. However, Pantone 15-5519 Turquoise was just named “the color of the year”. I’m looking forward to using it in our upcoming designs and seeing where else it pops up throughout the year“.
What should a couple do before they meet with you? How should they prepare? “Well, just come with some ideas of what you’re thinking of. If would be helpful if you have an idea of where you’re going to have the reception – this way I have an idea of the size of the venue. I know that brides go through all the magazines, so come in with clips of colors you like, pictures of locations you like. Know your budget. We can work together to build the best of these things to create a space that is unique and special”.
Marc also has a unique and innovative line called “Wedding in a Box by MWD”. This combines elegance and affordability for the discerning bride. Here the bride can choose from seasonal arrangements and craft a package that meets their style and budget.
“We have every type of bride and especially in this economy, we realize that couple are watching their budgets, but still want the glamour. That’s why I came up with Weddings in a Box. I don’t think any couple should have anything less than the very best they can afford“.
Marc is a gifted and talented designer whose subtle elegance, sensuous style and ability to create magic in subtle accents is why he is in demand. Give Marc a call and schedule your appointment to discuss your dream day. Marc is on facebook so friend him for updates or give him a tweet.
