6 Wedding Trends Everyone Will Appreciate, From The Best Man To The Mother Of The Bride

I am here for good food and a good time.

6 Wedding Trends Everyone Will Appreciate, From The Best Man To The Mother Of The Bride

One show that I frequently enjoy on TLC is "Four Weddings." This show has four brides compete for a dream honeymoon by comparing and rating the other's weddings. The show becomes entertaining due to the amount of over-the-top, excessive, or just-straight-crazy wedding ideas that the brides come up with to make themselves stand out. Recently, I have jumped back into Pinterest again, and I always find wedding trends and ideas through the app. Although I am not one of the girls that have her entire wedding planned out, I can appreciate and accept the current trends and applaud the "most extra" or "most creative" ideas that other women have come up with.

1. The doughnut wall

I first saw this idea on Pinterest and I was immediately captivated. Not only has this trend boomed recently and become a huge hit at not only weddings but fun events, but people find it totally Instagram-worthy. A doughnut aesthetic? Yes, please.

2. Including your dog at the wedding

There is always that one bride that considers her dog like her own son or daughter. The dog will be dressed up in a suit or a cute costume and can even walk down the aisle with the flower girl or bridesmaid. This idea can definitely get some "oohs" and "aahs."

3. Destination weddings

With a recent trend in European and "abroad" traveling, destination weddings are becoming more and more popular. Many couples want to be emerged in the country's culture or want the perfect beach photo.

4. An abundance of lights and candles

Women have been drooling over recent trends screaming "the more light the better." Not only do candles promote a romantic mood, but they can make a venue feel more personal and intimate.

5. Natural, greenery feels

One of the new trends in 2019 is organic and green flowers and landscapes for weddings. Many colors are including light and dark greens, whites, light pinks, and lots of rustic feels.

6. Food bars

Women love to be the "most extra" when it comes to food. I've seen s'mores, pizza, beer and wine, hamburgers, and also elaborate foods done in the form of a "bar." Not only is this interactive for guests, but it helps kill some time and also adds something fun for people to talk about days later.

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.


For as long as I can remember, I've been fat. The protagonists in the movies I've watched and the books I've read, however, have not been. . .

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
