How to Make Bridal Trends Your Own

How to Make Bridal Trends Your Own

Like most brides-to-be, you’ve likely been paying attention to wedding trends: from magazines to blogs and even television, you can gather what’s been popular in the wedding industry. We think this is a great way to get inspiration for your own wedding, but often find brides will fall in love with a trend and have no clue how to make it work for their own wedding. After all, you want your wedding to be as unique as you are! If you’ve found a trend you’re really loving but aren’t sure how to use it at your own ceremony, here are a few ideas on different ways to do some of our favorite wedding trends. 

Custom Cocktails


We’re sure you’ve seen custom cocktails as a trend for weddings—the bride and groom both have a personalized cocktail of their choosing for guests to order, often with a cute name. Usually this trend comes with an adorable retro camper bar or a fun sign denoting which drink is whose, but what if you’re a more traditional kind of bride? We think this trend can easily be incorporated into black tie weddings with a few minor changes—some pre-made drinks placed elegantly at cocktail hour or a more subtle sign at your bar can have the same effect, with a look that’s much more your style.



Bold Colors



More and more brides have been opting for bold colors at their weddings, from bright yellows to deep reds and hot pinks. For brides planning a classic church ceremony that don’t want to have too much color interfering with their aesthetic, a few pops of color in your florals is a great way to add in some bold colors for your wedding. On the other hand, if you’re planning a destination or outdoor wedding, it’s easy to incorporate bright colors into your day with bigger pieces (think: bridesmaids, table settings, etc).






Lately, more and more couples have been opting for mismatched yet put together elements at their weddings. By now, you’ve likely seen the boho, mismatched bridesmaids trend, which we love, but there’s plenty of ways to add this eclectic trend to your wedding: from mismatched glassware to a mix of seating arrangements, there’s plenty of ways to mix up your wedding to add that effortless yet elegant look.



Non Traditional Send Off



Traditionally, couples exit as their guests throw rice—but those days are long gone. Right now, we’re loving when couples choose an exit with a bit more flair. Sparklers are great for evening weddings and work with every style of wedding, while flower petals are great for boho weddings. If you love that fun, party-effect, find biodegradable confetti for one last pop of color at your wedding!
