This trend is definitely emerging more and
more frequently in recent times and we can see it being a staple look in summer
weddings this year. There is so much you can do with marbling from your
invitations to your cake the possibilities are endless. It also looks lovely
paired with metallic like rose gold and copper, you could have marbled
invitations with copper writing if you were thinking of using this trend on
your big day.
Balloons are becoming huge in weddings this year!

Late night snacks
We all love the food at weddings and a big
trend in recent times will live on this year stronger than ever. Late night
food is bigger and better than before, a lot of venues are open to your ideas
when it comes to this part of the night and some will even throw in the food
for free. Tayto sandwich bars and cheese platters are both trends we’ve seen
recently and they are set to live on this summer.
A lot of couples have chosen to give
some of their budget to deserving charities and this trend is set to live on
for years. It’s truly a timeless gesture and it will make your wedding feel more
worthwhile. Another option is to encourage guests to make charitable donations
in your name in lieu of wedding gifts, that’s a lot more extreme but very
effective if you pick one charity and direct your guests towards it.
