Cheers to a stunningly successful nine-year collaboration between Karen Bussen and Palladium Hotel Group! Solidifying their commitment to style and design, the partners unveiled their new Wedding Collections curated by Karen who serves as the exclusive wedding designer for Weddings by Palladium. Zeroing in on today’s hottest trends, this new collection is a refreshing take on the resort brand’s already picture-perfect destination wedding options.
A well-known and sought-after New York-based event and wedding planner, Karen is also the author of the “Simply Stunning” book series including Simply Stunning Weddings and Simply Stunning Bride. A leader in the industry for more than a decade, she holds an Advanced Certificate in Wines and Spirits from the prestigious WSET and has been a featured expert in numerous media outlets, including the Today Show, Parade, CBS Sunday Morning, and many others.
The Weddings Collections by Karen Bussen, available at TRS Hotels and Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts, combine the amenities Palladium Hotel Group guests have come to expect with a multitude of options allowing guests to tailor every detail – from seasonal flowers and on-trend décor to craft food and cocktails. A dedicated on-site wedding coordinator will help navigate the journey from inception to fruition, freeing the happy couple to focus on enjoying every magical moment.
Expertly executed by knowledgeable event professionals, the latest Karen Bussen Wedding Collections include the following themes:
- Evermore, designed to bring couples’ love stories to life with lush hanging ivy and dendrobium orchids
- Bliss in Bloom, marked by romantic roses and vintage-inspired details (including an upgraded/luxury option)
- Timeless, with just the right amount of “bling” – combining lilies, roses and lush greenery with pearls and crystals
- Waves of Love, inspired by sun, sea and sand, incorporating billowy fabrics and seashells (including an upgraded/luxury option)
- Lovebirds, designed especially for small groups, couples eloping or wedding vow renewals
The Karen Bussen Wedding Collection also incorporates multicultural wedding celebrations, including intricate, multi‑day South Asian weddings. The collection includes four deluxe events: Goddess Mehndi Party, Sangeet, Beautiful Byaah: The Wedding Ceremony, and a Private Vivah Reception.
All Weddings by Palladium events can be completely customized with the Fabulously Flexible approach, offering legal, symbolic and/or non-denominational services to fit any couples’ needs – including same-sex ceremonies in the Dominican Republic and Mexico. All Palladium Hotel Group properties offer numerous ceremony backdrops, from beach pergolas and garden gazebos to chapels and spa atriums.
