Welcome back from the weekend folks! I hope you had a chance to rest and recharge. I know now is the time of year where people start thinking about upcoming summer weddings. Do you have any to attend this summer? I wanted to give you my take on a few of this year’s wedding trends you may be seeing.
I researched several large wedding sites including Martha Stewart Weddings and found a common trend. All this week I’m going to be sharing those wedding trends with you, but even better I’ll be showing you how to incorporate them into your home parties. I mean, I do most of my entertaining at home these days since I got married almost 9 years ago. Crazy how fast time flies!
First up this week is wedding trend number one, lucite or transparency. Clear and see through wedding elements are going to be all the rage this year. Just check out how some of these weddings incorporated them into their ceremonies and receptions.
Lucite Wedding Trend Inspiration
How to Incorporate Lucite into your Home Party
Although it is hard to incorporate the big over the top party decorations from the inspiration above, it is easy to use lucite throughout your party in smaller ways.
Incorporating clear or acryllic into your tablescape is an easy way to use this trend. I love the idea of using clear chairs at your table. Most party rental companies have clear chairs available to rent. For around $5.00 you can get the perfect clear ghost chair.
If you don’t want to use chairs around your table, incorporate clear chargers, plates, or flatware. I love the options below that you can get on Amazon. Those dinner plates have great reviews too and are reasonably priced. These are all things you could have everyday and use for a lot of different parties too. Dual purpose for the win!

If you don’t want your table to be the feature at your party but instead want to use clear party decor, there are a ton of ways to do that too. Just check out the cool inspiration pictures below.
- Use clear balloons
- Glass containers to hold party favors, snacks, or treats
- Clear place cards (link below), these would be great party favors too!
- Hanging crystals or clear beads as a backdrop
- Use lots of bubbles for a kids birthday, a bubble machine makes this really easy
What do you think of this first wedding trend? Do you like the clear and translucent look of a party? Would you like to see more of these do it in real life kind of posts where I try to recreate a party look at home? If so, be sure to tell me in the comments! And also be ready for two more wedding trends later this week!
