VEIL ALTERNATIVES

Traditional veils are a timelessly chic choice. But it appears that today’s modern brides are looking for a more unique headpiece—like feather and floral toppers, turbans, bowler hats and even oversize bows.  (Very fashun.)

‘90s Style

The decade has enjoyed a renaissance across decor and fashion over the past few seasons—now weddings have joined in on the fun. Etsy has seen a huge uptick in ‘90s-reminiscent decor additions like iridescent paper goods and disco ball serveware, and in Paris Hilton-approved fashion decisions like rhinestone-encrusted garters and even—wait for it—butterfly hair clips.

Functional Favors

On the favor front, there’s a move away from anything too precious or sentimental. Instead, folks are searching for freebies guests will genuinely want to steal away with. Think: monogrammed soap bars and provisions like local coffee and honey.
