Milwaukee Couples Favorite Wedding Trends
It’s never too late to incorporate the latest wedding trends into your wedding planning. The best wedding trends feel timeless when couples customize these unique trends to feel uniquely and completely them. We love the newest wedding trends that revolve around choosing the right wedding venue for your big day and connecting it to unique wedding menu items.
Traditional and Modern Wedding Features are being Blended into a Unique Wedding Day
Couples are increasingly combining tradition and elegance with modern tastes. This modern flair can be seen in every detail, from the tableware to the colors, that is set against an elegant wedding venue. Wedding venues like Historic Courthouse 1893, Black Swan Milwaukee, Ivy House, Mercantile Hall, The Atrium, Pritzlaff Building, and The Rotunda have the character and architecture that is the perfect backdrop for modern wedding details.
Couples are Choosing Rustic Venues with a Different Feel
In the past, rustic wedding venues were synonymous with rustic barns. Barn weddings are still common, though couples seem to be drawn to rustic venues with a more elegant architecture. From there, couples are enhancing the feel by planning an incredibly elegant rustic affair with very natural touches. Even rustic décor has taken on an upscale feel (goodbye basic burlap).
Local wedding venues that fit into this category include: Schlitz Audubon, Rustic Manor, Fete, and Terrace 167. Though the weddings have taken on a more elegant tone, these venues still have the rustic wedding venue features that couples love: incredible beams, neutral tones, and breath-taking views. These venues are the perfect foundation for a wedding with all the elegant details and the perfect setting for beautiful outdoor wedding photos.
Creative Food Presentation is being Taken to a Whole New Level
Interactive food stations are still a wonderful wedding trend, allowing guest to mingle while enjoying their favorite dishes. Even traditional wedding menus with a carving station and potatoes can take on a whole new feel. Try Roasted Garlic Mashed & Baby Reds Mashed Potatoes served in martini glasses. Couples can also discuss options for non-traditional food stations with their caterer that give their big day an incredibly one-of-a-kind feel. Food stations also give couples a chance to strategically position the stations so guests can appreciate the unique features of their beautiful wedding venue.
Food stations are only the start of unique food presentation. Couples are taking food presentation to a whole new level, opting for menu items with a unique presentation. Food walls and non-cake options give couples the opportunity to serve guests delectable dishes with a breath-taking presentation.
Wedding Drinks are Fast Becoming a Fun Part of the Wedding Atmosphere
Signature cocktails and ales are a growing trend and a guest favorite. Couples are coming up with some really unique drinks (non-alcoholic and adult-only) that fit with their wedding atmosphere and their uniqueness as a couple. These unique cocktails can range from flavored lemonades during a summer wedding to a winter-flavored beverage that warms guests as they enter. (Talk to a wedding caterer for ideas.). You also can’t go wrong with the Wisconsin classics, such as a Brandy Old Fashioned or Spotted Cow Beer.
