5 Wedding Trends We're Saying Goodbye To


Wedding planning is an exciting process, but it can also be overwhelming. With so many trends to choose from, it can be difficult to know what's right for your big day. While some wedding trends have stood the test of time, others have fallen out of favor, and we couldn't be happier to see them go!

Here are a few wedding trends that we're happy to say goodbye to.

1. Garter Toss

The garter toss is a tradition that dates back to medieval times, when the bride's garter was considered good luck. However, in modern times, the garter toss can feel outdated and even a bit awkward. We're happy to see this tradition fade away and make room for more meaningful and intimate moments during the reception.

2. Party Favors

While party favors are a sweet gesture, they can be expensive and often go to waste. Guests appreciate a good meal and good company more than a small trinket to take home. With so many creative ways to add personal touches to your wedding, party favors can easily be swapped for something more meaningful.

3. Individual Bridal Party Entrances 

A bridal party introduction can be a fun way to kick off the reception, but individual introductions can take a long time and take away from the celebration. Instead of focusing on individual introductions, consider a group introduction that showcases the entire bridal party, or let the music and dancing take center stage.

4. Matching Bridesmaid Dresses

Matching bridesmaid dresses have been a wedding staple for generations, but we're happy to see this trend give way to more personal and eclectic looks. Mix and match bridesmaids, with each bridesmaid wearing a different dress that suits their personal style, is a trend we love and hope to see more of in the future.

5. Formal Receptions

Formal receptions can be stuffy and make guests feel uncomfortable. We're happy to see a shift towards more relaxed and intimate celebrations, with a focus on good food, good drinks, and good company.

As we bid farewell to these outdated wedding trends, we welcome new and creative ways to celebrate love and commitment. From mix and match bridesmaids to relaxed receptions, the focus is on creating an unforgettable experience for both you and your guests.


So let's say goodbye to the old and hello to the new as we plan the wedding of our dreams!
