The new rustic: Desert Dusk

Move over barns, there’s a new rustic look in town. This trend pulls straight from the desert inspo playbook, with muted greenery and bright pops of colour taking centre stage. Think sunsets, adobe homes, textured wood details, and watercolour landscapes, with mini cactus wedding favours for every guest. Etsy sellers are already capturing this vibe and have seen a 72% increase in views for
products associated with the term 'southwestern wedding'.

Pet-friendly weddings

A day as special as your wedding should be shared with your closest friends and family... and
that includes your fur baby. In 2016, pets were included in 8% of weddings, and the figure is only set to rise. Whether you’re hunting down the perfect “here comes the bride” sign or searching for a personalised collar or custom tuxedo for your furry ring bearer, you’ll find more than 30,000 search results for 'pet wedding' on Etsy.
