Fort Myers Wedding Rental Trends…Year after year we see new trends emerge for weddings and events. Some are a mere fad that fades just as quickly as they appeared. Others stand the test of time and become the new staple for décor or color scheme. Becoming a new timeless classic.
Every year we see new ideas emerge and 2020 is no different. While Wedding rental trends may not be what we most remember about 2020, it is certainly a more happy thought than a certain pandemic so many of our wonderful couples have been forced to deal with. So here are a few of the top Fort Myers wedding rental trends of 2020 in Florida.
Fort Myers Wedding Rental Trends 2020 in Florida
Go bold or go home
In 2020, couples are not afraid of color or pattern on their tables. W are seeing big, bold, and bright floral patterns, animal prints, and botanicals. This also includes brightly-hued china, flatware, and glassware. So the linens do not have to carry all of the weight. This allows for more mixing and matching for one-of-a-kind designs.
However, even with colorful accessories, linens will still be the star of the show. Not just in color, but in texture. Velvet textures are gaining in popularity, especially printed velvet. This brings together color, patterns, and texture for an unbeatable combination.
Statement bars and fixtures
Bars are no longer just for serving drinks; they are focal points in today’s events and rightfully so. Gone are the days of Formica bars or linen-draped foldable tables. Clients want their bars to make a statement with intentional design and functionality. Unique furniture and barware can quickly set apart a stylish bar; lush greenery takes it to the next level with beautiful living bars. Couples also want these beautiful bars manned by a true mixologist! They want someone who is knowledgeable and fun and will truly wow their guests!
As a whole, couples are looking for unique, non-traditional items that will set their wedding apart from others. This will look different in every market, whether it is a reclaimed wooden arch adorned with crystals or a grand banquet table turned into an apothecary-inspired bar. Regardless, it is time to get creative, seek inspiration, and take your design plans to the next level.
More than anything couples in 2020 are looking to make their day unique. Now with all the COVID-19 guidelines, we have certainly seen an impact in the wedding and events industry with many couples opting for micro weddings and several other posts posing their dates. Couples and vendors alike have been forced to get creative to find a way to carry on. But through all the changes, love had remained and couples, together with their vendors are finding unique ways to carry out their BEST DAY EVER!
Some of the ways we have seen couples making their day unique with rentals are custom lighting. Whether it be a custom monogram, or a new couple favorite, a custom neon sign! We have even seen couples opt for traditional uplighting but choosing more than one color to be displayed!
We have also seen a lot of creative and custom signs. Whether they use a beautiful chalkboard, vintage mirror or acrylic one this is for sure that customization is key!
We are also seeing couples carry their bold color choices over into their florals. They are also opting to use florals in so much more than just the bouquet and boutonnieres. We are seeing florals of course being used in centerpieces, but also on the cake, arches, custom signs, and even full wall backdrops.
So as much as we would have liked to get through this blog without talking about the fact that COVID-19 has turned the wedding and events world upside down, sadly we can’t as it has affected wedding rental trends as well. We are seeing so many couples working with their venues to expand their space to accommodate social distancing. For many, this means renting tents and utilizing any outdoor space their venue had to offer.
With tent rentals on the rise, we have also seen couples bring in more unique furniture arrangements and seating options to keep their guests comfortable and spread out as well.
