No matter what size wedding you’re planning, there are many ways to incorporate a mix of old and new trends. Use this guide to find the details you want to throw into your big day!
From chairs, to table numbers, to signage, the possibilities are endless for incorporating this modern decor element into your special day.
B- Bar Cart
These adorable bubbly vans are going to make regular wedding bars a thing of the past.
C- Colored Glassware
A simple glassware update can elevate your entire tablescape with a pop of color!
D- Dessert Bar
Why have just cake when you could have all of this?!
The classic greenery is so versatile, we dare you to try to not use it.
F- Floral Confetti
This is a more sustainable option than rice or regular confetti, and it actually photographs quite well.
G- Geometric Accents
Gone are the days of circles or squares. Sneak in a little geo fun with a triangle altar arch or hexagonal terrariums.
H- Height Differences
Decor comes in sets of different sizes for a reason — they look better together! Add some height to your centerpieces by utilizing alternating height vases or candlesticks.
I- Industrial Venues
Think lofts, warehouses, abandoned factories — these spaces bring such a unique, industrial vibe!
J- Jean Jackets
Had to throw a bridal style tip in here! Matching denim jackets for the bridal party make for a killer bridesmaid gift and Instagram-worthy group shots.
K- Kids’ Table
Kids are a touchy wedding subject for some, but if you are inviting enough kids to run a daycare and they are old enough, giving them their own table with a paper “tablecloth” and crayons is a sweet touch.
L- Lounge Area
Lounge areas with a picture perfect velvet sofa have grown in popularity over the years, and if you have extra decor budget to spend, why not?
Boho brides, unite! Macramé makes a fabulous altar backdrop, or simple chair decor.
N- Naked Cake
Perfectly imperfect, this rustic trend speaks for itself.
O- Overhead Greenery
Whether you have a garland hoop above the dance floor or hanging vines over the dining tables, this is definitely a trend that will make your guests instantly whip out their phones to document!
P- Pampas Grass
Say what you will, but we really don’t think this whimsical plant will be taken off a wedding trend list any time soon. Sneak it into your bouquet for a subtle appearance!
Q- Quaint Personalized Details
Everyone’s got a hashtag, but do you have personalized bar napkins? These are a super inexpensive way to add in some personalized details!
Whether they are down the aisle or strategically placed around your setup, they add a warm, welcoming vibe that will make everyone feel at home.
S- String Lights
Hung inside or out, these will add a romantic, intimate vibe to any space.
Honestly if you have the option to use a tent for your wedding reception, DO IT. They’re such a fun, blank canvas with endless possibilities!
U- Unconventional Seating Arrangements
What’s the first thing a guest sees when they get to the wedding? The ceremony site! No better way to make a first impression than with a creative and unique seating set up.
V- Votives, Votives, Votives
You can truly never have too many votives. Mix and match different styles and shades of the same color to really tie in all your table decor together.
W- White Bridesmaids Dresses
This trend has grown in popularity over the last few years, and we hope it stays. White on white is just too chic!
X- X-Back Chairs
Also known as crossback chairs, these are an inexpensive chair upgrade that will add a romantic touch to your space. You can read more about our obsession with chairs (it’s a real thing) in this blog post.
Y- Yard Celebrations
Ideas include lawn games, a Photo Booth van, or even just an outdoor cocktail hour. Guests love an outdoor moment!
Even in normal times, there’s always someone who can’t make the event so this technical addition isn’t so bad!
