Wedding Trends 2013
Every April the Houston Chapter of NACE hosts its annual, award-winning Wedding Trends program and we are continuing the tradition in 2013 with "Weddings, Wired: New Texas Trends!" Wedding Trends originated in 2006 as a regularly scheduled monthly program idea for the Houston chapter of the National Association for Catering and Events (NACE). In recent years, Weddings Trends has explored and conquered Organic Nuptials, Indian Monster Balls, Jedi Lights, Destination without Relocation,  and Weddings 4 All, A Royal Affair.
