Our Favorite Wedding Trends from 2017


Wedding trends are always evolving from season to season, and year to year. From overall themes, to glassware, to ceremony arches, there are always new trends on the horizon for just about every aspect involved in the décor, ambiance and activity at your wedding. Here are some of our favorite wedding trends that we saw in 2017:

Repurposed Signage

We are obsessed with this look! Using an old, rustic mirror with a Baroque style frame adds a hint of romantic glamour to any seating chart or welcome sign. Repurposing an old wooden window can give your itinerary or dinner menu some laid-back, rustic charm.

Market Lights

Market lights are the strings of small, Edison-style bulbs that you see on many a vineyard terrace or possibly strung around your friend’s balmy, garden patio. These lights are versatile enough to be used in a slew of creative ways, whatever your theme may be. This past year, we experienced couples making the most of the big pine trees by stringing market lights in between them, creating a more defined space for their open-air wedding. Unique geometric designs made from strings of market lights have been created above dance floors to showcase funky focal points. Our clear top tent has magically turned into an ultra-romantic winter space simply from couples hanging a mixture of tiny, twinkling lights and market lights throughout it's frame.

Marble Accents

Once associated with a regal and Romanesque look, marble has now evolved to be a staple in modern, minimalist designs. Marble accents have been found at many Chalet View weddings: marble façade cakes, marble place holders, marbled candles, marble stone plate chargers and more!

Whimsical Ceremony Arches

These ceremony arches that were used at Chalet View Lodge are incredibly unique and we absolutely love them! Your first kiss as spouses will be under this arch so make it your own and decorate it in a way that will be unforgettable.

Donut Walls

Recent years have seen a move away from the traditional big, white wedding cakes (yes, we’re sad too). However, chic dessert trends have sprung from the minds of some alternative bakers and caterers. At Chalet View Lodge, doughnut walls, s’mores smorgasbords, and spiked hot chocolate trolleys have been popping up more and more. Our preferred caterers and bakers can come u0p with just about anything these days! These interactive dessert displays are also a great way to indulge your guests in some delicious fun at the end of a beautiful night!
