New Wedding Trends are found at the Wedding Extravaganza ’18 Show
Flower power is the word for weddings in 2018 with impact through colour making a comeback. Watch for rich hued flowers in centerpieces and pastel floral patterns on wedding dresses. Unexpected florals in arrangements like dogwood branches for bouquets, living botanical backdrops and potted plants down wedding aisles all make our top list of floral trends to watch for. With alternative venues being the new trend JP Wisers Brand Centre and Wedding in the Woods will sure to be two new vendors in the wedding show that will be extremely popular with local hipster couples!
The Windsor/Essex region provides a perfect location to find truly unique wedding locations like none other in Ontario. Many of these venues will be on hand as well as exhibitors this weekend including many venues that are located along the shoreline of our waterways-something that is unheard in most Canadian urban areas. Please find attached a few pictures of trends. (Rich hued floral designs and botanical wall décor by Allure Events, Venue-JP Wiser Brand Experience Centre)
Baby Boomers Children are marrying and Many Younger Couples are relocating back to the Windsor area
The most recent WeddingBells Canada wide survey completed with engaged couples across Canada indicated that the average age of those getting married in Canada went up to 30 years of age for females and 32 for males in 2015. This means these couples have saved for their wedding and are making sure their event is coordinated with their own customized preference. This trend should last for at least the next 10 years. This is great news for local wedding businesses, as the average wedding in Canada now costs $30,717.00 as of 2015. This year’s Wedding Extravaganza expected attendance is between 700-775 couples. Do the simple math and that means that approximately $23,037,750 of buying decisions will be made at the show this weekend. The show stimulates buying decisions being made here in Windsor supporting a very strong local wedding market that is in a growth cycle.
