Have a good time with friends and enjoy your day. This will include all the fun things of a tailgate; you can even walk through like a parade. You have all the good food, and amazing people but just a bit more fun for a smaller group. 

Custom Masks

Have customs masks made for your wedding day! (Check out YippeeWear for your own custom creations!) This will allow you to be safe but also be gorgeous/handsome on your big day!

If it is just you two for a wedding, do something special like a lit up/decorated porch to surprise your spouse. This will allow you to have some time to enjoy the very sliver time period where life doesn’t seem crazy. 

Have some preordered speeches ready to play?

This means when it is just you two celebrating at home you can have people send in their best wishes/speeches to make up for not being able to celebrate in person! This is awesome for family to tell the person getting married about good memories! 

Drive Up Wedding

Finally, my favorite would be a drive-up wedding. Everyone pulls into a lot in their car and the light will all point at the bride and groom. This adds a fun touch of romance, but also having some friends doing silly things with you helps. This could include popcorn and slushies even!!

Flower/Grass Walls 

This year has been a huge hit on Grass and or Flower walls with neon signs on them. It has been going on for a while, yet we have seen an increase in the Midwest. This trend is a gorgeous idea, can add a lot of depth to a venue, and is great for pictures! However, they are not the most cost-effective thing to have at a wedding unless you DIY it all yourself.

Bright Colors: 

People have been moving away from light pastels and neutrals and going with a pop of bright color with cool tones to tone it down. This is a refreshing take on wedding colors compared to the Rose Gold & blush trend in the past years. This pairing has made an enormous difference in weddings as it makes everything more exciting and just that more gorgeous

Small Guest Counts, Big Celebrations 

This year since Covid has hit a big trend is having small gathers but celebrating to the fullest. This could mean from a virtual point of view or in person. People are starting to take multiple days to rest and recover from weddings and making it apart of scheduled wedding events.

Eco-Friendly Weddings  

People have been increasingly conscious about the earth and what they can to promote less waste and people are including this on their wedding day as well. This means having recycling bins, using real dishware, just making sure to thrift their wedding décor and just being more aware of what they are wasting in one day. This also includes caterers who only will work with you if you are using biodegradable utensils/plates.

Non-Traditional Wedding Dresses 

This year people are opting more either an extremely simple look or a over the top style. This meaning people are sticking with basic satin a very royal looking, or something with a lot of detail, sparkle, poof, the whole 9 yards.

Switching Up the Food 

A lot of people are moving towards nontraditional food items. This would include hiring a private chef to do everything for the night and have a personalized dinner for your special day. Another very popular thing is Food Trucks. Brides are hiring different food trucks to come to their wedding venues and serve food for a couple of hours, allowing them to have different and easy options.

10 Things to Know When Choosing A Wedding Cake

Head Count 

Make sure you know the number of people attending the reception before setting the “perfect” design for your wedding cake this is so the baker can get the size and quantity right for you! 

Matched Baked in Heaven 

Find a baker who connects with you and has some of the same style. This will ensure that they fulfill the true aesthetic of your wedding. However, you must communicate and be honest with them if you want it your way! 


Make sure to ask all the right questions! This includes: What custom designs will you do? Are they extra? When are my deposit or fees due? Do you include set up and stands in the fees? 

Save your Money! 

Using a smaller budget is okay, just figure out how you want to fit it into your cake/desserts! A budget friendly alternative is to have a small personalized tiered cake, then either have cupcakes or a dessert table! 

Different Desserts 

Include this unique take on a “cake table” and instead do a dessert table. This could mean donuts, mini pies, cookies, etc. This is a great alternative and can give people so many options to choose from!

Cakes Don’t have to be traditional 

This can mean that you can have a different flavor cake, and even different flavor layers. This would put a spin on things and give you the option of choosing something specific to you on your wedding day! 

Match your theme 

Make sure to communicate with your baker and match your cake to your theme, this will help tie everything together on your big day! 


Consider the weather into your big day if you’re having an outdoor wedding. Buttercream will melt like nobody’s business if not kept cold. So, allow time for the baker to bring the cake out closer to cutting the cake. 

Let the Professionals Do the work! 

Have them do all the work; it is your big day you should not have to worry about a thing except getting married. This means communicate with them beforehand about setup locations, how, when, and where! This will allow everything to run smoothly. 

Keeping the Wedding Spirits Alive 

Remember that after your wedding you’re supposed to keep the top tier of your cake in the freezer and eat it on your 1st anniversary for good luck!

Use faux flowers to your advantage!

-Real flowers are expensive. They cost so much more than faux flowers, yet they look just as gorgeous 

-There are so many kinds of faux flowers, this includes silk flowers which are very natural looking for your center pieces or your bouquet 

-You can rent faux flowers. This allows you to check a catalog and figure out exactly what you want, and they ship them to you. You only must ship them back after your wedding! This is a cost-effective way to have gorgeous flowers, and not wasting anything. 

-More than likely your guests will not be able to tell the difference, unless they go up and smell/feel them, and even if they do, they aren’t as focused on the flowers as they are on food and music.
