Wedding Trends On The Rise For The New Year


As a premier Phoenix-area wedding venue, Superstition Mountain Golf & Country Club is excited for another year of playing host to couples beginning the next chapter of their lives. Wedding styles and trends are always changing, check out what experts expect to see in 2018! 

Unique Food and Desserts – Treating guests to plated meals or a buffet is not the only decision needed to be made. In 2018 expect to see a rise in culinary creativity at weddings. Moving away from traditional wedding cake, uncommon desserts like mini pies, donuts and wide assortments of candies satisfies your guest’s sweet tooth in a fun way. 

Incorporating the Great Outdoors, Inside – For couples eager to have the liveliness and freshness of an outdoor wedding without worrying about the elements can incorporate foliage throughout their indoor venue. Utilizing foliage, plants and trees can bring the outside in for centerpieces, photo booth backdrop, aisle decor and more is a great way to blend an indoor/outdoor wedding. 

Small Wedding Parties – Large wedding parties have been quite popular in recent years as brides and grooms incorporate numerous friends and family on both sides. While family traditions and backgrounds can determine sizes of a wedding party, expect to see a reduction in groomsmen and bridesmaids in 2018. Smaller parties in some cases may include just the Maid-of-Honor, Best Man and one or two groomsmen and bridesmaids. 

Reception Entertainment -  Photo booths and live bands will continue to have their place in wedding receptions, however introducing new ways to entertain guests will rise in popularity in years to come. From live dancers, cartoonists, food trucks during cocktail hours and other unique ideas can add fun even more run to a traditional reception. 

Consider these trends and ideas as you begin to create the day you start your happy ever after. For more information on hosting your wedding or other special event at Superstition Mountain, call (480) 983-3200.
