We know you’re probably already a trendsetter, but even the most forward-thinking of us need some inspiration every once in awhile!

In today’s blog, we’ve rounded up a few upcoming wedding trends that we’ll be seeing more often in 2016. Which would you love to incorporate into your big day?

2016 Wedding Trends to Inspire Your Special Day!

Pay homage to home

Another trend that more couples are beginning to incorporate are elements that remind them of home. This is especially fun when the couple comes from different places so that they can each infuse the wedding with a little bit of their own spin. For a couple from Baltimore, think about serving a menu item that incorporates Old Bay or creating table tents in the shape of a blue crab.

Make it your own

The biggest trend you’ll see in 2016 are couples who buck tradition to do their wedding their own way. From nixing traditions that don’t really matter to incorporating games, activities, and events during the reception, couples aren’t interested in doing things the same way as everyone else. Instead, 2016 will be about infusing your personality into every aspect of your wedding and making sure your special day is a blast for everyone.

Let your wedding shine on

Long reserved for glitzy nights out on the town, couples are beginning to realize that incorporating metallic elements into their decor can add a dreamy, ethereal look to their wedding. While it may be a little much for an entire wedding dress, metallic accents are perfect for tablesettings and decor.
