The Hottest Wedding Trends in 2018

The Hottest Wedding Trends in 2018-Chispa MagazineYour wedding is going to be one of the biggest days of your life, so you have to focus on making it an exciting and special occasion for everyone. One of the easiest ways to make this happen is to focus on the latest wedding trends. By doing so, you will all but guarantee that your wedding is special, fun, and a memorable event that no one will soon forget.

Lace bridesmaid dresses are all the rage right now and have been known to definitely turn a few heads. Filling the banquet hall with beautiful candy buffets and displays is not only a fresh way to decorate your wedding reception; it’s also a unique way to give your guests a quick sugary pick me up. Sweet Services sell inexpensive bulk candy online, and their process is easy and provide a quick turn-around.

Do yourself a huge favor and stay up on the latest wedding trends to make your big day extra special. Before we’re through, we’ll share some exciting ideas that we feel you should incorporate into your wedding plans. They include the following:

Arches + Balloons
As an alternative to flowers, many people are now turning to balloons to help decorate their wedding reception hall. It is a fun, festive, and joyful way to decorate and transform your space without too much difficulty.

For the altar, you may decide to put in an archway to stand under when you say I do. To really spruce this up, think about tying colorful balloons around the arched structure to make it look even more attractive and inviting. We expect certain symbols at weddings, and this traditional archway is certainly one of them, but adding balloons will help to keep this wonderful symbol fresh, unique, and quite welcoming.

Eliminating the Wedding Favor
Believe it or not, many couples are now choosing to forget about the wedding favor altogether. Instead, they have decided to focus on creating an amazing experience that wedding guests will never forget.

As an example, many couples getting married are now providing their guests with the royal treatment. In some cases, they may bring in an exciting late-night cover band to play music at an after-hours party after their wedding reception. In some cases they are putting in a lipstick touchup bar, a specialty sip station, or a series of small gifts instead of one larger wedding favor.

Surprise Entertainment
Now that favors and takeaways are not as popular and those getting married are providing them less and less, these happy couples are now focusing on creating an interesting, exciting, and memorable experience for their guests. Surprise entertainment is one way to really liven up a wedding reception.

If you’re about to get married, consider hiring a live band that plays music that you and your guests will love. Or bring in a live DJ to spin the wheels of steel as your wedding reception runs late into the middle of the night. Other options include tarot card readers, theater performers, magicians, astrologers, and roaming sketch artists.

Asking for Money Instead of Gifts
At this point, many happy couples already have all the kitchen appliances and bedding they’ll ever need. In reality, these couples want to move out of their apartment and into a house so they could begin starting a family. So asking for cash is a way to help generate enough money for a down payment.

On the other hand, the newly married couple may want to go on the ultimate honeymoon. Since they just spent a small fortune paying for their wedding, they could use a cash injection to pay for their beautiful yet extravagant honeymoon vacation.

As you can see, today’s hottest wedding trends are certainly changing. Make the most of these scorching trends and make them a part of your upcoming wedding in 2018.
