Days when I see weddings like this are extra special. Full of blush, lilac and floral wedding perfection, this modern wedding is one that will be hot on Pinterest for years to come. With a mix of modern elegance and traditional touches this summer wedding has me oozing with wedding envy. I love the matching bridesmaids robes and ones for the mother and grandmother of the bride.
Wedding trends come and go but your wedding photos will last forever. Lucky for us, these latest trends will only make your wedding that much prettier. From creative wedding invites, to high decor arrangements and capturing candid moments, this year we are sure to see the prettiest ones yet! Here are 8 wedding trends you’ll be seeing this year.
LOTS OF GREENERY
In addition to the many bouquets, brides are adding lots of greenery to their wedding day decor. From hanging ivy to ceremony decor, there are lots of ways to incorporate this trend into your wedding.
Once you get through the formal shots you listed out for your photographer, he or she will be capturing the candid moments throughout the day. This isn’t a new trend, but the popularity of them is overtaking the formal ones. Try to be in the moment and the beauty of the day will be captured in these photos.
This trend has been around awhile and is here to stay! Intimate and more meaningful weddings are becoming increasingly popular. Just your nearest and dearest there to witness and partake in your special day!
Let’s talk about the accessory of the year! Crowns are back in a big way from beaded numbers to real floral beauties, this is the perfect accessory to complete your bridal look.
Your invitation is the first preview into your wedding. It shows off your colors, fonts and sets the tone of the day. Get creative by getting a custom map or a logo made just for you.
INNOVATIVE FOOD STATIONS
Add both high and low decor to really make this table pop. Think a food choice that is uniquely you. A s’mores bar or a donut table is the perfect way to end your reception and send your guests off with something sweet.
OPTING OUT OF GARTER ANS THE BOUQUET TOSS
Many brides and grooms today are opting out of the traditional garter and bouquet toss, but I don’t think anyone is complaining. This leaves more time for the photo booth and dance floor!
Wedding decor is no longer limited to tablescapes and the welcome table, give your guests something to ooh and awe over. Hang florals or a chandelier from the ceiling, add curtains over your reception. By adding these high arrangements you won’t be leaving any square inch of your wedding untouched.
BRIDES NEED HONEST ADVICE
There’s so much information out there from wedding experts and vendors about the best tips and tricks when you’re planning a wedding. It can be easy to get overwhelmed by all of this information. Instead, brides need some place or somebody they can turn to for honest and often real-time advice. The best place for brides to get that is often from people who were recently married. My advice to any bride-to-be would be to ask a friend what they regret from their wedding and one thing they will never forget about their wedding day. That’s the best two pieces of advice to start off with.
BRIDESMAIDS CAN TURN INTO BRIDESMAIDZILLA
A lot of people are scared that their bride-to-be friend is going to turn into a raging bridezilla and order them around throughout the wedding process. I have noticed that sometimes bridesmaids can get a bit out of control too, ordering around other bridesmaids and even the bride. It’s important that even if you are a type-A kind of person, that when you are a bridesmaid, you try to go with the flow as much as possible. That way the entire group can get along throughout the wedding process.
BRIDES JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN
Before the wedding, a bride may think that she needs a long list of things to be present on the big day in order for her to have fun and be happy, but truly, most brides just need the people they love surrounding them, good music and food, and that’s all on the wedding day. So when you’re planning out your wedding budget, keep that in mind before spending a ton on flowers or even fancy table cloths.
Every year I love to take a look back at some of my favorite posts from the year. I love creating wedding inspiration in every category to inspire brides of today and this years trends. Which post was your favorite?
Every NYE party needs a little year end sparkle. #amiright There are not many times in a year when you get to don a sequin dress, toss confetti and sip champs all night long!

For a cozy night in there is nothing better!
