Our 5 Favorite Resort Wedding Trends of 2018

Got weddings on the brain? If you can spare a minute from scrolling obsessively through Pinterest, we might be able to simplify some of those choices for you. From personalized food to “feel”-inspired ceremonies, here are our top favorite wedding trends of 2018. Get ready for the day of your dreams with novel ideas that showcase your personality and style!

  1. Weddings Driven by “Feels”

Instead of focusing first on color or food, couples in 2018 are choosing to let the feels dictate their weddings, says The Knot. Rustic? Modern? Renaissance? Retro? After the happy pair chooses an approach, then they’ll decide on details: satin or silk, barns or ballrooms, vibrant hues or virtuous pastels?

  1. Funding First!

More and more couples feel comfortable asking for donations to the stuff they really want: trips, homes, even adoption. Since most engaged couples have been living together for a while in this modern age, it only makes sense. If you want to jump on the trend, just identify the cause you love, then put up a website registry.

  1. Ongoing Favors

Instead of one giant favor splurge, more couples are choosing to treat their guests to lots of little things. Think tiny makeup compacts, little compasses as seating cards, truffles and small dessert bites after dinner, and welcome bags for out-of-towners.

  1. Personalizing the Food

Sure, a cocktail named after you is always fun. But what about an hors d’oeuvre or candy? This year, ask your chefs to get creative and name a dish especially after you, then memorialize it with pictures and a recipe to send home with guests.

  1. Get Back to Nature

This isn’t so much a trend as it is a continuation of humanity’s longstanding love of combining nuptials with the Great Outdoors. The “trend” is going strong in 2018, however, with a special emphasis on melding the “in” with the “out”. Think huge banks of windows and outdoor patios for your wedding event, or an outdoor ceremony with indoor reception. Other ideas include hotel rooms with nature-inspired themes, like the Water, Garden and Mountain rooms at Skytop Lodge.

Of course, the Poconos have long been a destination for honeymooners and the soon-to-be-wed alike. If you’re looking for a beautiful place to hold that hip, trendy, indoor/outdoor wedding, you’ll find it at Skytop Lodge. We invite you to call us at (855) 345-7759 or email today!
