Bohemian Wedding Arches

Floral arches have been recently been trending for all styles of wedding, but the boho wedding arch takes a geometric twist on this staple. The boho wedding arch has a distinct geometric shape and is draped in cascading flowers, pampas grass, or another dreamy and ethereal detail. Including a bohemian wedding arch in your Big Day will add a dramatic but natural flair, and we guarantee your guests will be impressed.

Interactive Food Displays

Everyone loves a delicious treat or snack at a wedding, but you can take the culinary experience at your wedding to the next level by including an interactive food display or experience. This is one of the most fun trends we’re seeing at Chicago Marriott Chicago. A “make your own s’mores” bar is not just a delightful sweet, but a fun experience that will get guests talking, mingling, and provide that something special that everyone will always remember. From having a food truck as part of your reception fare to offering a late night snack delivered to guests in a fun way, there are plenty of ways to customize your guests’ interaction with your menu.

Acrylic Stationery

Wow your guests with modern and stylish acrylic stationery. This trend is simultaneously classy and edgy and we can’t get enough of it. Use acrylic invitations to set the tone for your Big Day or feature your seating chart or table numbers on elegant acrylics. However you choose to use this look, it will catch your guests’ attention and stand out in the best of ways.
