Current trends for weddings include seasonal (such as floral for spring) as well as marking dates/places the couple met, became engaged, or are getting married. These markings can include longitude and latitude or the star map trend. Couples put the night sky (typically as a line art drawing) with the date they became engaged or their wedding date. 

Whimsical, magical, and colorful are still big trends, which is ideal for sublimation. Travel- or Boho-themed, as well as beach glamour, remain popular. Think unconventional seating charts (garden stakes, anyone?); functional favors (such as bag tags); adding in textures of lace, marble, or leather to backgrounds; and ways the bride or groom can add a secret message that reflects their personality.
