Hey everyone. So last Tuesday, I posted about 5 wedding trends I hate. Today I thought I’d go for the other side of the coin. These are some popular wedding trends that I can not get enough of.
5. Mason Jars
Yes I know, you’re all rolling your eyes and thinking “Oh god not mason jars, they’re so overdone” but I honestly can not get enough of them and the variety of ways people use them. I’ve seen them used as glasses (sometimes there’s even been a stem added). I’ve seen them arranged in a multitude of ways in centerpieces. I’ve seen them covered in burlap, ribbons, lace, chalkboard paint, you name it. I’ve even seen them used in the lighting.
4. Funky Groomsmen Socks
I’m always up for a little bit of originality in a wedding and I find that colourful groomsmen socks are an awesome way to do it. It provides great photo opportunities and a laugh from the guests. It’s a nice little fun touch.
3. Chair Signs
When I’m talking chair signs, I mean those cute little signs on the back of the bride and grooms chairs. Most times they say “Mr” and “Mrs.” or “Bride” and “Groom” and they’re pretty cute like that, but then you get into the more creative ones.
Chair signs have been one of my favourite trends since I started planning my wedding and saw them. I find it a cute little touch and yet another way to bring the personalities of the couple into the wedding.
2. “Something Blue” Shoes
I’ve noticed that quite a few brides nowadays aren’t sticking with classic white shoes. Instead, they’ll use their footwear as their “something blue”. I personally love the idea and am about 95% certain I’ll be doing that. I find it provides a nice pop against the white of the dress in some photos, especially when the shoes in question are a darker blue.
And my favourite wedding trend?
Succulents have been EVERYWHERE in the past little bit and I think they are such an interesting addition to weddings. I remember my mom having some in our garden when I was a kid (although she called them something else) so when I first saw them used in a wedding, I leapt right at them. And like mason jars, they have many uses. I’ve seen escort cards doubling as a favour. I’ve seen them on cakes, centerpieces and in bouquets, where I think they can look absolutely stunning.
