party] adds visual interest to the eye
and an elevated overall design."
Butler also suggests playing with
table height. "Barstool or counter-height
tables work well for dinner and give a
party a restaurant-style feel," she says.
As for seating, "Velvet will continue to
be popular with soft seating," predicts
Kevech. "Jewel tones and detailed
stitching will complete the look."
Banquet seating, such as farm or
vineyard tables that don't need linens,
remains popular, according to Kari
Gronseth, event specialist for Event
Lab LLC, Minneapolis, Minn. "I often
pair them with rounds topped in a
fancy linen for a more elegant look."
Rectangular wood tables are also
popular for the clients who Cousins
works with in the Salt Lake City
region. "The exposed wood works
with the ambience of being in the
mountains, giving it a natural, outdoor
effect," she says. "I like to mix up
the round and farmhouse tables so
it's interesting for the eye to see."

DECOR: FROM RUSTIC TO ROYAL

The rustic look that was so popular at
weddings in recent years-think mason
jars and plenty of barnwood-is on its
way out, at least in some areas of the
country, according to trend watchers.
"Now, rustic is being interpreted in more
of an industrial look, with a focus on
texture in concrete, wood and marble
accents," Kevech says.
Cousins agrees. "The bride who's
heading to a resort in Colorado or Utah
will still want to use that look," she says.
"The bride on the beach, maybe not. But
what we've seen go away is the overly
rustic look-all wood everything. . . .
Brides are requesting a more refined
style to make their event feel more
timeless and classic."
Couples marrying in the Midwest,
however, are still partial to the rustic
motif. "The rustic look is always

going to lend itself to outdoorsy
weddings," Gronseth says. "I don't
see that going away."
One of the most influential weddings
of 2018 was the royal nuptials of Prince
Harry and Meghan Markle. Wedding
planners and couples have been taking
inspiration from their sprawling fresh
and organic arrangements of green
foliage, white roses and peonies. "White
floral with mixed greens has been the
biggest request recently," says Cousins.
"The royal wedding comes out and
suddenly you start seeing the photos
in magazines and social media, and the
look starts to build momentum."
The royal wedding's liberal use of
green marked a departure from the
solid floral backdrops that have become
standard at many large weddings and
celebrations. It's also led to a more
textured range of greenery, from deep
moss hues to pale greens. In fact,
more than one-third of couples plan to
incorporate greenery into their wedding
decor in some way, according to a recent
wedding trend survey from wedding
registry and planning site Zola.
Other colors and combinations are
also making an appearance. "For a long
time it was blush," says Mociler. "But
now, we're starting to see a surprising
pop of color-like sage green and
powder blue, or dramatic colors like
jewel tones in the napkins and chair
covers, while keeping the majority of the
palette really clean and neutral."
Butler recently designed a wedding
in Palm Springs with hues of goldenrod
and orange for cocktail hour and
deeper jewel tones of sapphire blue and
emerald green for dinner and dancing.
"I'm excited to see clients embracing
color," she says. "It's a nice change from
the neutrals that influxed the wedding
industry in recent years."
