Want a Unique Wedding? Avoid These Wedding Trends, Then

By JP Events Staff

September 26, 2018

Your Nashville wedding should be really special. This is a once in a lifetime kind of event – so it’s pretty natural that you want to make sure every single element of the Big Day truly mirrors who you are, what you like, and what your love story is all about.

Wedding trends can provide great inspiration when it comes to making your wedding feel really one of a kind. However, when they are overused, they can have the exact opposite effect. What are some of the wedding trends that were madly popular in 2018, but now are slowly getting ready to bid us farewell? We have some tips for you – continue reading if you want to find out more.
  • Flower walls. They were breathtaking, and they were an amazing way to breathe life into the dullest of wedding spaces. However, as so many brides have used this trend this year, incorporating it in your wedding day might feel just a tad passé. There are many other fantastic ways to decorate a special wall (or your wedding ceremony backdrop, for that matter): balloons, ribbons, a special message…
  • Doughnut walls. This is the flower wall version for foodies – a true spectacle of sweetness and originality at first, which has been used and re-used so much that it kind of became boring at some point. You can still serve doughnuts at your wedding (those can never go out of fashion!), but you might want to stay away from hanging them on a wall.
  • Super extravagant wedding cakes. OK, we get it: your cake has to stand out. In 2018, this was taken to whole new extents – an overflowing of blooms, multiple tiers, intricate decorations, and so on. These over the top cakes look splendid – but since so many brides settled on the same idea, this kind of cake design might feel a touch old for most of your guests.
  • Too many bridesmaids. Etiquette dictates that the number of your wedding guests is closely associated with the number of bridesmaids. In 2018, everyone seemed to ask everyone else to be a bridesmaid – which might have looked fun at first, but it started to be a bit tiresome later on. Keep your bridesmaids’ numbers to a minimum (unless you actually have so many close friends that you just can’t leave anyone out of the wedding party).
