We want all of our brides to be well informed of all the new trends happening in the wedding world, so of course, as soon as we know – you know! The millennials have inspired a new set of trends that have already begun; here is the latest scoop from one of our favorite websites, The Knot:
- Casual weddings. Millennial couples are opting for more casual weddings with nearly 2 in 3 (64%) of weddings being semi-formal. This is leading to a decline in popularity for religious institutions and banquet halls, and historical buildings and farms are on the rise.
- Intimate settings. They crave intimacy and favor smaller weddings with an average number of guests being 138 with down-to-earth experiences. For example, outdoor weddings with a more laid-back elegance are trending big. Everything is well-done, but feels organic and natural. Think eucalyptus, ferns and grasses sprouting out from a few deep purple or red dahlias.
- Fun elements. Millennial couples have unique and fun personalities with a very creative side. They’re showing this off with quirky food elements such as Moscow mules and DIY sundae stations. Having an after-party is also trending big for the fun couple and their guests who don’t want the party to end!
- Personal experiences. Adding a personal touch that represents the couples’ style is trending really big this year. They want to showcase their personalities with a customized feeling. For example, branded weddings with personalized logos and monograms creating a theme throughout allowing their style to really shine.
