Trend: Vintage Lounge Areas
Where to Find it: Scavenged Vintage Rentals
Whether it serves as a retro photo op, a place for you and your new spouse to have a heartfelt moment alone, or space for your guests to relax during cocktail hour, we absolutely love the idea of incorporating a vintage lounge area into your wedding space! Scavenged Vintage Rentals is the best in the vintage furniture biz, and it’s impossible to choose distasteful pieces from their collection – every rental seems to have its own story to tell, so use them to help tell your love story!
Trend: Custom Signage
Where to Find it: Sandstone Avenue
Some wedding trends come and go, but signage is here to stay! Adorable custom signage from Sandstone Avenue makes the perfect addition to any wedding! Make it modern or rustic, and this decor now doubles as a keepsake! Put it in the home you share with your spouse to always remind you of your wedding date and how amazing it was.
Trend: Watercolor Wedding Cakes
Where to Find it: Stacie’s Cakes
Abstract and whimsical, watercolor wedding cakes have to be one of the most colorful trends this season! Add a touch of whimsy and fun to your wedding with a bright and cheery watercolor-painted wedding cake. Leave it bare for a more sophisticated look, or add fresh floral for garden party vibes! Take your color scheme into neutral territory and your creative cake might have more of a faux-marble look – perfect for weddings during winter months!
Trend: Interactive Catering
Where to Find it: Sparkling Tulips
Oklahoma brides, we have three words for you: Living. Champagne. Wall. Imagine your friends and family spending cocktail hour enjoying endless chilled glasses of champagne from the most unique white-gloved “bartender” they’ve ever seen (or not seen)! It’s more than a way to serve champagne – it’s an experience. Guests can’t help themselves and end up having just as much fun taking selfies and interacting with the servers. While the living champagne wall is a show-stopper, Sparkling Tulips offers many different options for any kind of wedding or special event including a groom’s wall as well as backdrop walls. With styles in green boxwood or white hydrangea, they have something to please everyone!

Trend: Build-Your-Own Favors
Where to Find it: Les Bouquets
Some assembly required, but we promise your guests will love it! Oklahoma City’s newest (and cutest!) mobile flower cart is now available for events! When they aren’t “popping up shop” in front of favorite local businesses, the flower cart is available for anything from birthdays and bachelorettes to holiday parties and wedding receptions. Les Bouquets specializes in providing gorgeous, locally-sourced flowers (along with the most precious set-up ever) so that your guests and party-goers can build their own bouquets as a fun activity and then take them home as a fabulous floral party favor. Plus, the entire experience can be customized to suit your event!
Trend: Custom Cookie Bar
Where to Find it: Whimsy Cookie Company
We love dessert bars and custom cookies, so we know Whimsy Cookies make a great addition to any wedding dessert bar. Any of their bridal cookies from online sets are sure to be a hit, from their gooey butter cookies in regular and mini size to their Whimsy Bites, mini sugar cookies displayed on an array of cake stands and various sizes. Whimsy Cookie Company has something for every taste and style, with such a great variety of options that can make your cookies truly stand out!

Trend: Small Bites
Where to Find it: Justin Thompson Catering
Why limit your friends and family to choosing between just two entrees when they could try the whole menu? Serving your wedding dinner in a tasting menu style allows guests to sample small bites so everyone can try a little bit of everything! The staff at Justin Thompson Catering will whip up as many sophisticated small bites as you need for your event, big or small. Guests will remember your wedding dinner as delicious and fun when they have so many delectable options to choose from!
Trend: Selfie Style
Where to Find it: Studio on Site
Move over, antiquated photo booths! Selfie-style photo booths are a wedding trend we have been waiting for since we found out ring lights exist! If you want photo booth shots that will make you look back and think “flawless,” Studio on Site is the vendor for you. Their selfie-style photo booth will allow you to have fast digital pictures for immediate sharing, high-resolution prints made by request, or even make your new monogram a watermark on photos from your reception!
