Top 5 Wedding Trends for 2016

Like the fashion industry, the wedding business is ever-changing. The must wear and must-do trends to make your dream wedding special for your guests almost change with the seasons. There are five wedding trends that anyone planning a wedding should consider to bring that extra element to their guests.

Adventure Weddings. With the rise of #liveauthentic and adventure photography, I believe there will be a shift in locations for weddings, more camp-, outdoor-, or travel-themed locations.

Lighting Galore. The key to setting a romantic mood? Ambience. “Every couple wants to create a more romantic and intimate environment,” says Los Angeles–based event designer Trish Stevens of Classic Party Rentals. “Wedding lighting is the best — and simplest — way to establish both.” Event designers say they’re using more pendant lights with bare “Edison” bulbs, chandeliers (both vintage and modern) and candelabras to cast a soft glow.

Same Day Edit. Sharing has become such a hot commodity, so more couples are valuing the short highlight films that are easily shared online. Take it one step further and show your video the day-of at your reception, while everything’s still fresh in guests’ minds. The fully edited film comes later.

Desserts Other Than Cake… and Infused with Alcohol. Of course everyone gets wedding cake. But, by the time you dance all night, more dessert are a must. That’s why alcoholic-infused desserts are becoming a hit. Ideas include Fudgy Bourbon Balls, Grapefruit Pomegranate Champagne Sorbet, and Zeppole with Caramel Whiskey Sauce.
