Guest Interaction Couples want to give their guests a memorable occasion and an engaging social atmosphere. Food trucks will still be popular, not just for dinner but also desserts and food bites.  Local beers and wines will be popular along with bourbon cocktails and specialized bars. 

Styles  Two styles that are popular right now: 
Wild West style is taking the focus away from barns with leather, antlers and ranches. 
Boho relaxed, informal events with picnic style events, hand drawn maps and a 70's feel.

Floral  Greenery is still very popular with swags and herbs, but larger hedges and pieces are gaining popularity. Large installations such as hanging centerpieces and floral chandeliers are now trending on blogs across the country.  Unstructured centerpieces and arrangements  are being used. Loose, cascading bouquets and flowing ribbons are the top choice for brides. Tip: Engage the senses by using fresh fruit or a signature scent. 

Color and Design Copper will be joining metallics along with glitter and sparkle. While soft, muted colors are still popular, watercolors are being added. Couples are using one accent color to add a pop of personality or color blocking with bold, jewel tones.  Mixing patterns and textures adds depth and visual appeal.
