Grazing Tables

Sayonara, passed appetizers. 2019’s cocktail hour is all about a giant, gorgeous grazing table heaped with meats, cheeses, crudités and the like.

Elaborate Seating Charts

Formerly a spot of function, escort card displays have officially become a huge decor moment. Flora and fauna directives—like this citrus centerpiece meets seating chart—are particularly popular.

Pampas Grass

In the blooms department, this feathery, wheat-toned grass has become the go-to as an inexpensive way to add volume, texture and earthy appeal.

Foodie Favors

Party favors have taken a turn for the edible, with folks opting for petite provisions that hail from their wedding location or favorite memories. Think: Custom spice blends, mini olive oil decanters or artisanal honey pots.

Interactive Snack Stations

Food stations are a fun way to spice up your menu—and your run of show. (WeddingWire creative director Jeffra Trumpower has seen a sharp uptick, specifically in tea bars, guacamole bars, popcorn bars and s’mores stations.)
