Cake alternatives

For real, how significant is the cutting of the wedding cake these days? However, baking cakes in tiers can cost quite a ton. As such, we see a new wedding trend of couples tilting towards alternative cakes (desserts). We’ll see donut walls, cookies, and biscuits, custom cupcakes, cheesecakes and boards, macaroons, meringues & pavlova, etc. The choice of dessert depends on the tastes of the couple. Alternatives are also budget-friendly and easier for guests to enjoy.

Practical and fashionable dresses

The attire trend has taken a walk away from the basic virginal white dress fashion. We now see brides practical and fashionable dresses. Modern brides tilt towards dresses that match their themes and personality. Jumpsuits for casual weddings and ivory dresses with pockets for farm weddings. We see white or cream dresses with colourful accents for formal weddings, blush laces and cape dresses for Bohemian, etc. Brides want to be comfortable, trendy, and chic.

Signature menus

Couples have adopted the new wedding reception trends of presenting signature menus. They’re toning down on the champagne and going hard on the open bars. Guests can now create blends to suit their palates. Also, we see lots of custom cocktails, mocktails, parfait, and juices that reflect the couple’s taste.

Foods now come with the couple’s chosen or home mane flavor. Snacks come in dainty shapes, monogrammed initials, best colours, or likeness of the couple. These beautiful personal touches are unforgettable.

Intimate weddings

Gone are the days of having the entire nation at your wedding. These days, couples are drawn to intimate and meaningful weddings. We see fewer guests. We’re looking at 50 to 150 people depending on the family size. Couples want to celebrate their love with people that mean the most to them. We’re all for that!

Luxury experience

This is the best part of having intimate weddings. A cut back on the number of guests doesn’t mean a cut back on luxury. Couples now spread the budget luxuriously amongst the invited guests. We’ll see the state of the art venue wedding trends and royal dining styles. The venue decor is what dreams are made of and the wedding favors, a hit! Guests will enjoy a luxury experience because it’s a day they’ll never forget.

Eco-friendly weddings

In a world that’s experiencing climate change, the goal is to be responsible even at your wedding. Modern couples take this seriously and make a conscious effort to have eco-friendly weddings. We see couples sourcing wedding materials locally so as to reduce carbon footprints. Couples send out paperless invites and switch the regular confetti for bird seeds and plantable flowers. Going forward, couples are replacing plastics and glass with biodegradable dinnerware. Lastly, couples may decide to contribute to the environment by planting trees as favors.

Statement ambiance

Wedding ambiance is a big deal these days. And one way to set the right ambiance is through lighting. Little wonder a lot of thought goes into this. The lighting impresses the ambiance which in turn affects the mood. Also, lighting determines how the wedding pictures turn out. The top of the trend includes string lights, chandeliers, candles, torches, lanterns, and lamps. Whether indoors or outdoors, you want to ensure that the mood is right.

But in the end, it’s your day, a memory that will never fade. So it is important that you do you. Don’t be sucked in by the trend because, in truth, it’s not mandatory. Deft tradition as nothing is cast in stone. Insist on your wedding day vision, and get people who share the same onboard. You’ll always look back on your day with a smile.
