Happy wedding season, and happy wedding planning!

Sierra & Jacqui

Trend #1: Custom Everything

Couples are more interested than ever in incorporating their love story, personality, and background into the details of their big day. Expect to see personal elements folded heavily into every aspect of their wedding, such as special food selections (i.e., not your typical chicken or fish) and custom artwork (e.g., custom crest for the new family) in invitations and decor.

Trend #2: Plant Takeover

Weddings this year will see an abundance of plants, from wedding wreaths and oversized plant bouquets to potted plants dotted from the aisle to the dessert station. Plants and greenery are no longer just for rustic-themed weddings! Couples want their big day to be brimming with energy from their guests and natural decor.

Trend #3: Balloon Fever

Balloon fever is sweeping the wedding industry, so expect to see vibrant and artistic balloon arches and decor, as well as jumbo balloon arrangements replacing traditional bouquets. These whimsical throwbacks to childhood birthday parties will add a lighthearted charm to any wedding theme.

Trend #4: Setting the Bar

Back in the day, there was the coffee and dessert bar. This year, that trend has kicked into high gear and offers couples an opportunity to further integrate elements of their personality into their big day. Was their first date over margaritas? Did they meet at a donut shop? There is an infinite number of possibilities for setting a bar wedding guests can experience.

Trend #5: The Whole Spectrum

Couples are embracing the full color spectrum this year--from black details to pops of iridescent decor--so expect to see fewer of your traditional crisp whites and more creative takes on color, such as matte and faded finishes.

Trend #6: Marble and Industrial

The wedding industry will see more marble and industrial accents this year than it ever has. Think marble styled cakes, copper flatware, and industrial furniture and lighting. Metallics will pop in invitations and decor, as well as attire and floral arrangements. The acrylic wave will also continue sweeping wedding decor and further highlight metallic accents.

Trend #7: Not-So-Hidden Gems

In addition to marble and industrial accents, wedding decor is experiencing a gem moment. Couples are all about setting good vibes for their wedding day, and some are very conscious about the energy they wish to cultivate. Expect to see crystals, such as rose quartz, as well as geometric elements dotted throughout their ceremony and venue.

Trend #8: Succulent Details

Succulents seem to be everywhere these days and provide a natural flare that is low maintenance and full of possibility. Think succulent stationary, centerpieces, and bouquet accents. Succulents make a wonderful wedding favor, as well!

Trend #9: Statement Backdrops

Social media’s impact on the wedding industry has led to unique must-haves, such as the wedding hashtag, and one of the latest trends is the Instagram-worthy statement backdrop. Having a statement backdrop can draw attention to a specific table (e.g., guestbook) and double as a fun selfie spot.

Trend #10: Art Deco Elements

Many weddings this year will have a very art deco feel about them. From carefully selected venues to geometric motifs, couples will be pulling inspiration for their big day from the elegance and style of the 1920s and 1930s. Expect to see more Gatsby-inspired receptions, dresses reminiscent of flappers, and a whole lot of jazz.
