Planning a wedding can be overwhelming.
Luckily, there are so many that happen every day that wedding trends emerge, making it easier to see what guest expect and what is outdated and a waste of money. Some are very out-of-the-box and defy the traditional.
However, everyone is doing it, so take a look and see if these trends are right for you!
1. Since people want to party all night, but sometimes cannot due to noise restrictions, a new trend has come up: Silent Discos.
This is when people wear headphones that are all wirelessly connected to the same source, so everyone can jam out to the music, without it leaking out to the neighbors. It doesn’t have to be the whole party, just for the late night.
2. Since hipsters have taken over culture, artisanal cuisine from local sources has become more and more popular.
Do some research into your destination and see if you can get some of the hors d’oeuvre from local sources. For example, if you are in the New England, try looking into local crab rolls or other seafood delicacies.
3. One big trend changes an age-old tradition where the bridesmaids all wear the same attire.
Now, each bridesmaid cannot simply where what they want, but there can be a more subtle coordination when it comes to the color palate.
It is harder to pull off, but at the end of the day, it is worth it, since it seems like less of a uniform and overall more fashionable.
4. Wedding invitations have always been somewhat of a hint when it came to the aesthetic of the wedding, as the font, kerning, and color revealed what was to come on the wedding day.
However, these days, it has become trendier to splurge on textured media like velvet, linen, calfskin, and suede for the invitations. This gives a more tactile and three-dimensional feel to the guests about the aesthetic you are going for.
