Trend 1: Lucite Accents
A unique touch that can carried through many design aspects of the day. The best part about lucite is that it is unexpected which always adds a wow factor. Acrylic materials allow the words that mean to most to pop, but be sure the font color don’t blend into the background of whatever the piece will be laid against.

Trend 2: Cascading Florals
Say goodbye to traditional circular floral centerpieces! 2016 is all about cascading flowers that mix in textures to create pieces that move. Ways to incorporate this trend? Bouquets, centerpieces, suspended florals and wedding cakes.
Ashley La Fleur, owner of La Belle Fleur Events, recommends couples host design ideation sessions with their floral or design team to inspire creative ways to embrace florals within various aspects of the day. “Often couples get stuck thinking that they have to have the cookie cutter wedding reception look, but nowadays, anything goes! Meeting with a design team early in the process allows the couple to understand that most design teams want to brainstorm and execute glamorous new ideas! Cascading florals is definitely my favorite trend hitting the scene.”

Trend 3: Champagne Escort Cards
An escort card table is an excellent way to add a personal touch. After all, this is the official welcome into the reception, therefore it should be something to stand out. Welcome your guests with a bubbly table of champagne for a glamorous entrance.
