Wedding Trend Watch!

What are some things that are popular right now in weddings? 

If you’re looking for catering ideas, the theme is anything bite-sized!  Plated dinners are out this year…bring in the finger-foods!  Heavy hors d’oeuvres are increasingly popular for weddings.  Anything from meat on skewers, to meat carving station with bread rolls, veggie and fruit trays, meat and cheese trays, hot wings, sushi, caprese salad, sushi, meatballs, tea sandwiches, stuffed jalapeños, and much more.  Truly, the possibilities are endless.  Chances are, especially if you’re having an evening wedding, guests might have eaten before the wedding and are just looking for party food to pick at. 

Want something unique for dessert?  Who hasn’t had wedding cake in their lives?  Try to switch it up with something unique.  Cupcakes are a hot commodity right now, along with cheesecake bites, and cake-pops (sometimes referred to as lolli-cakes).  Another way to satisfy that sweet-tooth is the popular candy buffet table for guests.  Lots of couples are enjoying supplying guests with a table full of candy or other desserts to add pops of color to the reception and an element of fun and surprise! 

Other trends to look for:

  • Photo booths                                     
  • Separate dress for the reception
  • Colorful bridal shoes                                                                                        
  • Parasols
  • Paisley
  • Lace
  • Food in champagne or martini glasses

Whatever you decide to do for your wedding, make sure it fits your personality and is something you love!
