Weddings have been happening since the beginning of time. The trends, however, have been changing in a matter of years and now even months and days. In an age where trends are changing every day, it is tough to keep up. Before setting foot in 2018, here are a few trends you should leave behind and if you haven’t sent out your wedding invites you might want to reconsider if you have any of these mistakes planned.
Everyone likes their tables decorated. When you go overboard with the table decorations by crossing the limit of the decent amount of things places on the tables it can be a significant hurdle for the guests. They have to maneuver themselves around the numerous numbers of vases, sculptures, and candles. The whole ordeal gets a little fussy.
The whole purpose of the tables is that your guests can sit down have some and mingle with each other. This, however, does not happen when they have ice sculptures in their way. After spending a great amount of money on the decorations, you wouldn’t want something to fall off the table. If the tables are muddled, this is bound to happen.
Burlap and Mason Jars
The moment you type rustic wedding s in the Google search bar you come up with a great number of images of burlap and mason jars. While they do look beautiful, they have nearly been a part of every rustic wedding for the past couple of years and now need to be left behind in 2017.
It’s time to bring about a change and bring something new to the table. You should think of new modern options and be the new trendsetters.
To have all the sweet, you can eat sounds good. Small sweet trolleys at the venue are a great idea, but that is all that it is an idea. It can get sticky and messy really quick.
By the time the guests will have time to get to the candy cart the candy will be soft and sticky. The tongs will have been misplaced, and there will be no way to measure who got how much and who went home on an empty stomach. If you want to please your guest’s sweet tooth, you can go for cakes, cookies, and tarts rather than candies and sweets.
With the increase in knowledge about environmental law, one must be considerate towards the environment. A confetti toss looks amazing at the end of a ceremony and leads to beautiful pictures. A large number of these confetti toss are made of non-biodegradable materials. A rather efficient and useable alternative is eco-friendly paper or rose petals something that will decompose and not harm the environment.
Traditions have been followed for ages, and by now they’ve been repeated so many times that they aren’t special.Your wedding should be a reflection of who you are and who you’re going to marry. So leave the traditions behind in2018 and create something new.
Cheesy Photo Booth Props
Since the trend came, we’ve seen the same props again and again. The pout, mustaches, the glasses, bad boas have to change if you’re going to make props put some effort into it and try to go for something more modern.
Twinkle lights do look beautiful, everyone agrees, but that doesn’t mean that you end up using them everywhere and at your wedding. If you’re going for a winter Christmas wedding, then it’s okay but if having a summer wedding twinkle lights might not be the best choice in 2018.
