Every year, we look to other experts to gather predictions for new wedding trends. Earlier this month, we gave you a sneak peek at some 2018 wedding trend predictions from our friends at WeddingWire but there are more!

2018 wedding trends

  • TEXTURE, TEXTURE, TEXTURE – Couples are realizing that guests really do notice the details and that includes texture. Different textures and unique elements such as wax seals on menus, assorted linens on each table or even 3 different tabletops for the reception tables are some new ideas that guests are guaranteed to notice.
  • UNIQUE FOOD – At Benson Tent Rent, we’ve noticed how important food is to the couples because they know that the food can make or break the wedding. Couples are working extra hard to provide guests with a new food experience, especially one that resonates with their personal style. Look for engaging appetizer stations such as raw sushi bars or make your own stations, farm-to-table dinners and non-traditional desserts.
  • DESSERTS ARE DELICIOUS – Let’s face it, people don’t really love eating wedding cake especially if they’re trying to still look great in their formal clothes. Instead, 2018 will bring creative desserts such as popsicles, custards and even ice cream sandwiches. While guests not be eating it, wedding cakes (and that iconic photo) are not going anywhere.
  • BRINGING IN THE WOODS – Couples are making a shift from a “rustic” look and feel to more of a “woodsy” look. This means that weddings will feature a lot of greenery in the florals and might even feature green as the wedding’s main color. Couples are moving away from burlap and will include more wooden details such as our new hand-made farm tables (stay tuned for more information!).

We can’t wait to see these trends come to like throughout 2018. Let us know if you notice any other trends and contact Benson Tent Rent to start planning your wedding!
