Whether it is a wedding, party or event of some type, the latest trends in event decor are ever changing. Similar to style and fashion, decor has different categories and changes frequently. For example, traditional weddings will always be in style, just as blue jeans will be. However, decor trends change with time, just like fashion trends. This does not mean they are looked back upon with regret, however, the trends are constantly changing and people try to keep up with them.

Let’s talk about some of the latest trends in event decor and how people are using them.


Weddings and events are in high demand for photobooths! Whether they are homemade or rented, a photobooth of some sort is usually available at an event nowadays. Often the photobooth includes wedding props and more. These photos are encouraged to be shared on social platforms for friends and the world to see. Which brings us to our next trend in event decor: the photo booth allows attendees to engage with the event and have a little fun doing it!


The incorporation of the wedding hashtag in decor has become increasingly more popular over the last few years. Couples will come up with a “punny” hashtag for their wedding day and ask guests to share photos using the hashtag. For example, #HappilyEverTheMillers or #SmithPartyofTwo. These hashtags are often written on boards, at photobooth stations, on napkins, invitations, etc. This trend is increasing with no signs of slowing down. Embrace the hashtag!

Cake Alternatives

Gone are the days of a traditional wedding cake. Couples are now opting for sweet alternatives including cake pops, cupcakes, brownies, etc. Sweet alternatives leave room for creativity and more options. Many events and weddings offer dessert stations, sundae bars and more. Guests typically enjoy the variety and change of pace from traditional cake.
These are just a few of the popular trends in event decor. The trends are constantly changing and evolving.
