1. Unplugged Ceremonies

Searches for “unplugged wedding ceremony” sky rocketed 600 percent on Pinterest just in the past year. Couples want to live in the moment and are asking guests to put away their cameras and phones during the ceremony.

2. Circular Ceremony Seating

No guest will have a bad seat with these new creative seating arrangements! Spiral, square and horseshoe shapes are great ways to re-think ceremony seating.

3. Toss Bars

Couples are coming up with fun ways to make a grand exit. Toss bars with fresh flower petals or confetti allow guests to grab their own mix to toss at the kiss!

Outdoor wedding venues like beaches and backyards are on the rise.

7. Food Trucks & Casual Dining
