We’re seeing geode cakes popping up quite a bit, but we haven’t seen anything quite like Shelby Elizabeth Cakes‘ jaw-dropping, gravity-defying cakes. We’re not sure how she does it, but we do know that these cakes not only look amazing, but taste amazing too!
Long Farmhouse Tables for Large Groups
Your wedding day brings together family and friends, old and new. What better way to encourage conversation and intimacy in a large group setting than to utilize a long farmhouse table instead of multiple rounds? Longer tables make for great conversations and fabulous decor – just look at that greenery runner!

Unexpected Perspectives in Photography
This photo caught our eyes immediately – how could it not?! Aisha Khan of AMA by Aisha uses light and reflection impeccably to create truly unforgettable images that freeze a moment in time in a completely unique way. We’re in awe!
Glass-Covered Floral Centerpieces
Speaking of whimsy, we stopped our scroll when we saw this floral centerpiece trend encapsulating miniature bouquets under glass. It gives the piece a terrarium effect perfect for any whimsical, rustic or boho wedding!
Oversized Marquee Letters
One of the most fun current trends we’re loving? These oversized Hollywood-style marquee letters are popping up in receptions all over, and they bring such a fun, customizable element to any dance floor! Spell out your new last name or any fun word you can think of and get the party started. Plus, they make for fantastic photo ops!
Chunky Boho Fishtail Braids
Leave it to the ladies at Etoilly Artistry to create some of the most swoon-worthy bridal looks, including this trend we’re loving of oversized boho braids in a fishtail style! The classic braid gets a statement-making twist with this fun and effortless yet chic hairstyle.

Menus and Signage on Cloth
To add an unexpected element of texture that gives a casual, approachable edge to an elegant tablescape, try having select pieces of stationery printed on premium cloth! We love the clean look of these menus draped softly at each setting!
Mismatched Meets Modern
It’s no secret we love a good rustic tablescape, but this one stood out to us with its mismatched chairs juxtaposed with clean, modern and minimalistic dinnerware. The contrast is unexpected and a great way to combine conflicting styles in a visually appealing way!
As you can see, Houston wedding vendors are on top of their game when it comes to current trends of the season. They’re not only following suit, but creating new ideas for us to fawn over! Find a team of talented vendors to make your wedding dreams a reality with our Local Vendors tool!
