The Knot Annual Trends Report 2016


2016 wedding trends are taking wedding traditions to a whole new level! Get the details from our annual Wedding Trends Report:


Brides are always looking for ways to get more bang for their buck. In comes the two-in-one-dress, taking brides from ceremony chic to reception ready.

Fashion-Forward Florals. 

Floral printed gowns and traditional dresses with 3-D floral details are flooding the bridal runways.

Wedding Concierge Pros. 

Wedding planning is getting easier, and so is finding the perfect venue. The Knot can help couples find the perfect wedding venue with our Venue Concierge Service -- for free!

Say hello to satellite bars. 

Sometimes one bar just isn't enough at the reception, so couples are setting up "satellite" bars that feature a specialty spirit, cocktail or wine tasting.

Contemporary Choirs. 

Keeping guests entertained all night long is nothing new, but a 20-person ensemble with amazing a cappella abilities sure is!

Late-Night Karaoke. 

Couples are keeping the party going with a basic karaoke setup and some photo booth props.

Sweet Endings. 

Video projection mapping is giving wedding cakes a design upgrade with plain tiers acting as a canvas for projecting video displays. There's also some great news for those with a sweet tooth -- requests for mini icepops with couple's names on the stick and donut displays are heating up.

Total Personalization. 

Couples are choosing to reflect their unique tastes and interests -- whether it's by having a friend or family member officiate the ceremony or decorating tables inspired by their favorite movies.

3-D Printing. 

From memorable 3-D save-the-dates to cake toppers and wedding bands, couples are setting a modern vibe for their big day.

Locally Sourced Food. 

Today's wedding menu goes beyond the standard fish or chicken. More couples are opting to serve guests high quality farm-fresh local foods.
