Now Trending

We are all about what happening now. We want to be the first to know, the first to go and the first to show. Why? It in our nature to explore and expand.

With that spirit we offer some of the latest trends:

COLOR
There are three steps to the typical color cycle, which usually starts with fashion and ends with events.  First, you see the color trend in fashion and start wearing it.  Second, you start incorporating the color into your home décor and start living it.  Third, you entertain with the color and feature it at celebrations because you are familiar with it.

So what are the up and coming colors?

We start with one main color and build a palette that to compliment.

FOOD TRUCKS

Mobile food trucks are a hot new trend. Everything from Sushi to Ice Cream is served to guests entering, leaving or withing in line. Is fun, entertaining and hey, who doesn’t love good food? We are happy to be working some great players bringing this Pittsburgh. From weddings to corporate events, food trucks can add a fun and unique touch, plus it’s usually pretty affordable. The guests always love it.

COFFEE AND DESSERT BARS
Gone are the days of “regular or decaf” Now it’s flavored coffee, Cappuccino, espresso and a million combinations. Desserts are no longer limited to cake, cupcakes, chocolate fountains and candy bars. Explore creative “dessert bars” that not only taste amazing but they look amazing as well. Your guests will love the final course of the evening.

SOCIAL MEDIA
Recently a groom stopped just after the “I do” to update his Facebook status from Single to Married. It’s a bit extreme but social media is not just for PR campaigns. Twitter party invites and updates. We work with bridal couple to create WedSites where family and friends can post messages and guest can follow the the engagement and planning for the celebration. It brings guest into the party months before they arrive.

From traditional to cutting edge, let us show you the possibilities.

Pierce Events Springs Into Whirl Wedding Guide

Once again Pierce Events is featured in the lastest edition of Whirl Wedding Guide 2011. (Now Available)
Check out “Inspiration Station” to see one of our recent weddings. Dale and Tarrah Ackerman held a beautiful reception at the Mansion of Maple Heights. We were so honored to provide entertainment and lighting design for the celebration.
The “Cup Cake” really caught the attention of the editors at Whirl. It’s something we have been featuring for sometime now.
Personally I’m not a big fan of cake. (Sorry bakers) For my own wedding I was told you had to have a cake and the traditional Pittsburgh Cookie Tray. For those of you not in Pittsburgh that means a zillion cookies and a huge cake.

Not wanting to get stuck with left over cake we decided not to have a cookie tray. Oh the uproar!
The “Cup Cake” provides a great alternative to the traditional wedding cake. Guests can take one when they wish and yes you can even include a cookie tray.
I’m so thankful to all the brides, grooms and families that have placed their trust in Pierce Events and allowed us to a part of such a special celebration.

We have had many calls inquiring about weddings dates and love to answer your questions. Give us a call and let us create the perfect celebration for you.
