Four Seasons caters to new breed of themed weddings

WORLDWIDE Brides are getting increasingly creative with their requests for themed weddings, according to Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts.

Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas this summer held a bold and elaborate Cirque du Soleil-themed wedding. Diners were entertained by aerial dancers suspended above the tables on silk rope and delighted by menus made of chocolate. Since then, the bar has been raised again at the Las Vegas hotel with an all-singing, all-dancing Hollywood glamour wedding. Featuring a soft ivory and white color scheme, suspended floral centerpieces and walls draped in fabric, the look was both elegant and romantic. Plenty of razzle-dazzle was provided by a 12-piece band and a Frank Sinatra impersonator.

Sometimes location itself provides the inspiration, as is the case at Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia. A recent city-themed wedding was styled by a superlative backdrop of the cityscape, complemented by a pretzel bar and Ben Franklin impersonators. At the unabashedly modern Four Seasons Hotel Beirut, spectacular views of the new marina and cityscape have offered the definitive setting for recent James Bond- and Chanel-themed weddings.

Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle offers something altogether more far flung—the Thai jungle theme is both romantic and exotic, with the bride arriving at the ceremony on elephant and departing as lucky paper lanterns are lit and disappear into the night sky.

Perfect for a woodland wedding theme, Four Seasons Hotel Palo Alto’s Country Cabin wedding is designed to bring the outside in. The venue can be decorated with logs and moss, while chalk nametags adorn the tables and the flowers are willfully wild.
