Succulents, metallic trendy this wedding season in Naples

A flower bouquet and succulents sits on display at In the '70s, colored tuxedos grew in popularity. And in the '90s, bridesmaids caught on the matchy-matchy trend, wearing identical hairstyles and dresses.   From 2000 to now, wedding trends continued to evolve, not just the fashion, but also the decor, favors and food. Now, cupcakes and doughnut walls are replacing traditional wedding cakes; brides are opting for shiny dresses; pet dogs are serving as ring bearers; and lifestyle websites like  Pinterest  are inspiring do-it-yourself couples. To say weddings have evolved over the decades is an understatement. While some trends go away, some never expire, and others randomly reappear after years of obscurity.  This year, it's all about succulents, metallic colors, LED candles and edible favors, according to husband and wife Kara and Brian Cardinal, who own  KC Weddings and Events based in Southwest Florida.   More: These gifts help when attending weddings, funerals or graduations As one of the top trends this year, metallic and pastel colors like blush pink are found on everything from dresses to table covers to flowers. "Rose gold is huge right now. It's a really big deal," said Kara Cardinal, 34. "We're also seeing a lot of gold and silver, and sometimes a combination of the three."

For the past five years, the Cardinals have planned weddings and vow renewals in places like Naples and Captiva Island, whether on the beach, in a swanky hotel or in a modest venue. They've got about 10 weddings lined up this year. Wedding season in Southwest Florida typically starts in September and ends in May.  Kara Cardinal works out of her home office in Lely and always has weddings on the brain.
