Creative Wedding Food & Reception Trends Taking Over 2019

Every year we see wedding trends come and go and this year is no different. If you are looking for a way to make your wedding memorable and unique check out the newest food & reception trends for weddings in 2019.

Interactive Food Stations

In 2019 we are seeing a shift from the tradition sit down dinner or buffet at wedding receptions. Couples everywhere are looking for dinner options that allow for a more social reception by allowing couples to mingle while visiting individual stations to choose their own dinner and dessert selections.

Find the right wedding caterer and they will help you plan the most extraordinary dinner for your guests. Caterers are preparing pasta stations, guacamole stations, popcorn bars, s’more bars, tea bars and more. Will you ditch the traditional wedding buffet and served dinners?

Grazing Stations For Your Wedding

This might sound like an odd name for something at your wedding but it is really a great idea. Keeping with the theme of making your wedding interactive and social couples are incorporating what we will refer to as grazing stations. These are super cute themed tables that offer wedding guests snacks like different cheese and crackers, breads, fruits, nuts, meats and of course chocolates. These snacking stations are a great way to keep your guests mingling.

Velvet Makes An Appearance

Brides and grooms are always looking for something to set their wedding apart from everyone else. In 2019 we are seeing velvet touches on wedding tables. This is super exciting because it elevates the experience of your guests. Even if you are planning a simple, rustic or backyard event you can add a touch of warmth and whimsy by adding velvet napkins or tablecloths. Your guests will be surprised and impressed.

Out With The Green And In With The Grass

Well, we aren’t really going to tell you that greenery is gone from the wedding in 2019 but we are seeing a shift in floral designs for weddings this year. The newest trend taking over wedding receptions is the use of Pampas grass. If you aren’t familiar with Pampas grass it is a beautiful feathery, wheat-colored grass that adds a wonderful touch of romance and whimsy to your 2019 wedding. Pampas grass is soft and easy to use and great for making huge altar arches, decorating your wedding aisle, adding a touch of whimsy to your wedding tables or a soft touch to your wedding bouquets.

Wedding greenery will still be prevalent throughout most weddings and special events but now we are seeing an increase in the demand for earthy elements that add a touch of drama to the event. The goal, of course, is to have #Instaworthy Photos that go viral!

Brides and wedding planners everywhere are using Pampas grass to line wedding aisles, as centerpieces and additions to floral bouquets.

Coral Colors

If you have been wondering what the hottest color for weddings in 2019 will be here it is! Coral is the color we are expecting to see in weddings this year. It is a beautiful sunny, warm and bright pinkish-orange shade that instills cheer and joy in everyone. Coral can be added to your wedding in your florals, bridesmaid dresses, cakes, ties, socks and more.
