Creative Desserts

Steering away from the traditional, brides are choosing outlandish and surprising treats for post-meal indulgences, i.e., donuts, macaroons, s’mores, and even ice cream sandwiches. All of which, handheld or bite-size, can be offered individually or in a “bar” style to give your guests a variety of choices.



Although they may typically be thought of as a flower that only fits a very specific type of wedding or venue location; succulent flowers have become the creative addition to bouquets and centerpieces at every type of wedding in 2018 largely due to their unexpected availability in color and size. Paired with classic wedding florals, they offer a compelling spin to the traditional bouquet.



Boho Chic

In previous years this style has become increasingly popular, and in 2018 it will continue to flourish with bold colors choices (Pantone Purple: color of the year!), woodsy accents, and outdoor ceremonies. The effortless beauty that accompanies this wedding style is ultimately intentional, but still offers a laid-back tone to any bride’s special day. 


Mixed Metals

Metallics have become increasingly popular in previous years, but mixed metals are sure to be an interesting twist on this classic look in 2018. Geared towards the bride who likes all things that shine, mix silver and gold so that you don’t have to decide!

According to Pinterest, searches for wedding balloons are way up this year, and we hope to see this playful touch popping up in weddings more often. Balloon arrangements and even the use of large individual balloons (sometimes filled with confetti or glitter!) are making an entrance this year that is sure to make you feel like a kid again!
