Fall 2017 Wed­dings!

Appar­ently spring is creep­ing up rather than spring­ing upon us this year, & while it is hard to imag­ine bypass­ing spring & sum­mer it is time for us to get seri­ous about fall! By now you have your bridal party accounted for, ven­dors selected, & party pants ready for the big day! But, before you can say your “I do’s”, you have to make one more com­mit­ment… & that’s to your color scheme.

Our favorite way to stay up to date with upcom­ing color trends is through pan​tone​.com. Here you will find the hottest trends for every sea­son, & even know the high­est trend­ing color of the year, which you can see by click­ing here!

Pantone-Fall-2017

We LOVE the mix­ture of pas­tels & deeper pur­ples & blues com­ing into play this fall, and hope to see how you use these col­ors for your fall wed­ding at Lesner Inn!

Top First Dance Songs of 2017

Whether its rock & roll or blues, clas­si­cal or coun­try, r&b or reg­gae, or any other genre of music you can think of, the song that you and your fiancé choose as your first dance can deter­mine the mood of your wed­ding recep­tion. There are no rules when it comes to select­ing this song, in fact we had one of our awe­some Lesner Inn cou­ples dance to the instru­men­tal music from their favorite Star Wars movie this past year! Con­sid­er­ing there are no rules, many cou­ples have trou­ble select­ing the song for their first dance, so we thought we would help out by com­pil­ing a list of our all-​time favorites, new & old:

10. I’ve Had the Time of My Life – Jen­nifer Warnes & Bill Med­ley



9. Kiss Me – Six­pence Non the Richer



8. Head Over Boots – Jon Pardi



7. Let’s Stay Together – Al Green



6. The Story – Brandi Carlisle

4. You & Me – Dave Matthews Band



3. Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You – Frankie Valli



2. Every­thing – Michael Bublé



1. Fresh Eyes – Andy Gram­mar



The song that you share with your loved for your first dance should be one that you trea­sure for­ever, so make sure it’s a good one! We would love to hear your first dance story, so share it with us!
