2018 Trend Report

Published 04/17/2018

We got together with our friends and fellow members of the Rhode Island Wedding Group and ask what types of trends they are seeing for 2018 weddings. Here are some trends to watch out for:

Arpeggio Wedding Entertainment RI DJ Artistic Wedding Films Drone
How cool is this drone shot - can you spot the couple?

“Drones! Drones! And more drones!” Mike from Artistic Wedding Films said his couples cannot get enough of the aerial shots of their wedding.


We aren’t sorry to say burlap is on its way out (finally!) Alyssa from Felicia’s Perfect Setting XO the Girls also told us “bold colors and white is WHITE HOT!” for linens.

For the gentlemen, bowties are back! – Aldo of Aldo’s House of Formals

Don't be afraid of some color!

Barbara from Perception Jewelry agrees, “bold and deep colors are in. And so are bows!” Beading on dresses is more and more common.

At the receptions, we are seeing more and more food stations, some cocktail receptions with no sit-down meal. “Late night snacks and food trucks are still huge” – Blackstone Catering.

Another big trend is weekday weddings! There are 6 other days of the week besides Saturday you can get married so why not pick one?

After the wedding, Ann from Annie’s Escapes notice couples are postponing their honeymoon and no longer leaving the night of their wedding to jet off to their honeymoon. Couples are waiting 3-6 months after they say I do to take their honeymoon.

Are you dreaming of your honeymoon in Italy?

Trends we at Arpeggio Wedding Entertainment are seeing:

Friday and Sunday weddings are on the rise!

We are providing music for the entire day – ceremony, cocktail hour and the reception (sometimes event after parties!)

Couples are really taking time to give us specific songs they want for all aspects of their wedding to truly customize their big day.

Lawn games are still huge and we are always adding to our inventory!

Photo booths are also not going anywhere!
