2018 Wedding Trend Predictions

wedding trends

The holiday season is here, making it a good time for gifts, family gatherings, and predictions for what is going to be popular next year.

Conversations switch from “thank you mom for the pajamas” to “I can’t believe we’re at the end of 2017.”

With one-year concluding, a new year is coming and it brings with it new wedding trends that will attract the masses. Let’s talk about what will be in for 2018 weddings.

His and Her drinks!

They are excellent ways to have him branch out from ordering a beer and her to get excited about. His and Her drinks can be as simple as a Malibu bay breeze and a Jack and Coke or as extravagant as a flavored mojito muddled on the spot and a “new old fashioned” for an interesting twist on today’s popular spirits.

Make the bar conversational and fun. It will speed up your line when it comes to making decisions and will have your guests trying one of your favorite concoctions just how you like it.

Making your wedding different!

If there was something cute about competition, you would find it in the wedding environment.

The recent spark in our station décor and food presentation has been in large part influenced by our modern direction and culinary team but confirmed by brides and grooms who are booking now.

They want to throw a party that impresses. We live in Philadelphia, so it only makes sense that our Philly Cheesesteak station has been a huge hit. The craft beer market is growing each year and the thirst for this trend can be quenched with our Beer Garden Station. You can also send your guests home with something warm and delicious with our Doughnut Wall station.

Outdoor ceremony!

The amount invested by the Warrington’s ownership in its ceremony gardens is a great indication of how big this trend will be come 2018’s spring, summer and fall. The convenience and beauty of hosting your ceremony in our private outdoor gardens that will be right next to your cocktail room can’t be beat.

Say I do under blue skies; outdoor gardens have become the romantic place to make your love for each other official and we have the perfect grounds for it!

After meeting with many couples leading up to the busy 2018 wedding season, we have found these trends to be extremely popular.

What do you think will be the biggest trend for weddings next year? Let us know when you take a tour with us here at Bucks County’s premier wedding destination.

The Warrington Country Club: It’s a Culture

Eight years ago, when searching for my career I was asked a question during an interview about what meant more to me: recognition or compensation.  I immediately began thinking of a culture where employees recognized each other’s hard work.  Where a flat rate compensation didn’t reward all the subtle and grand efforts key employees exuded.

Here at the Warrington Country Club we embrace a different approach.  One where hard work is recognized as soon as a fellow employee exceeds the expectations of our guests, demonstrates a phenomenal work ethic, displays a willingness to learn more about the position, and an eagerness to teach others.
