Top Trends and Themes for a Wedding Reception in Swansea, MA

Top Themes for Swansea WeddingEach year the bridal magazines publish all of the insider details on the most popular trends and themes.

When planning a Swansea wedding reception, make sure to choose colors and decorative items that suit the venue.

Mystical & Enchanted

We should have guessed that with the big unicorn trend that swept the nation that mystical and enchanted forest theme weddings weren’t too far behind. Instead of the cotton candy and neon blue colors that typically adorn unicorn-theme items, this year’s wedding theme features more bold hues. By combining the mystical trend with a darker, more enchanted theme, brides can choose decorations for their wedding reception in Swansea, MA that is more grown-up.

Popular colors for this theme include:

  • dark green, forest green, mossy hues
  • bold red roses
  • dark purple shades
  • accents of blue, deep magenta, and white

Decorative items for all of your social gatherings and special occasions, including the bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and the wedding reception can match the theme. Bold flowers, decorative greenery, flickering candle lighting, dark moss, naked cakes with floral toppers, and creative backdrops can bring it all together. Ask the on-site event coordinator about using specialty lighting, as well as incorporating unique food items into the menu.

It should be no surprise that this year’s brides are taking the whole farmhouse craze to the next level, incorporating the understated and textural decor into their wedding day. When planning a wedding reception in Swansea, MA that embraces this rustic farmhouse trend, make sure to focus on the details. Chunky wood slices make great platforms for flowers placed in Mason jars and LED candles. String lighting creates a beautiful accent, but just make sure that it is okay with the MA wedding and banquet facility to add extra lighting. Adorn tables, including gift, cake, and guestbook tables, with lots of lights and florals.

Accent lighting can set the stage, particularly for evening events. Combine unique textures, such as woolen knits with lace and linens for table settings, seating areas, and other focal points. Consider plain wooden chairs for seating instead of fancier Chivari chairs for the reception.

Modern Industrial Metallic

One of the most significant trends this year is the combination of urban and vintage designs to create a whole new look and feel. When metallic elements are included, it allows the base colors of the wedding theme to really pop. The popularity of rose gold and copper in all sorts of design has made its way into wedding decor as well. Other unique decorative options include the use of acrylics and geometric-shaped items for signage, table settings, menus, and much more.

Popular colors for this theme include:

  • rose gold and rose-colored accents
  • copper and copper shades

  • bold green used in bouquets, as well as wall and table decor

Decorative items should be minimal, using the natural surrounding at the MA wedding and banquet facility as the backdrop for the wedding. Metallic, geometric, and floral elements should be the primary decoration. Linens should be crisp and white, and table settings should incorporate metallic chargers and coordinating flatware.
