New Wedding Trends Begin to Emerge

April 5, 2012

With so many great and unique wedding trends emerging, traditional weddings have now become even more rare. While most wedding trends change from season to season, these have garnered quite a following from brides-to-be everywhere!

The biggest overall wedding trend that has been emerging since the start of the new year is the personalization of the ceremony. Instead of picking the traditional processional music, grooms and brides are picking songs that are more representative of their relationship and history together- some with lyrics, and some instrumental only. Other elements of the ceremony also reflect upon the couple’s history together with other small, personal touches like self-written vows and the involvement of pets. Personalization is also a great way to save some money since it allows the couple to reflect on what they really find important to include in the ceremony.

Wedding attire is another thing that is changing rapidly. Many weddings are finding more focus on the groom’s outfit than in the past, while brides are getting more glamorous with their gown choices. Hollywood style, form-fitting dresses are very sought after currently with plunging backs, high slits, and eye-catching embellishments.

Wedding menus are also being revamped in weddings across the globe. While cakes are the traditional choice, cupcakes were starting to gain grounds because of their extra convenience and cuteness. However, cake pops are now replacing cupcakes with even more portability. These adorable bite sized pieces of cake are becoming a huge hit at weddings everywhere! Buffets are also becoming increasingly popular because they provide guests with more options and the ability to control their portions.

Wedding videos are now becoming a thing of the past with the emergence of “marryoke”. Now, wedding guests (and participants!) lip-sync and dance to a selected song at different points in the ceremony and reception. All of these clips are then edited together to make a music video full of special moments.
