Another year for weddings, another batch of trends.

Every year, weddings change. Certain styles die out, others make their debut and some make a triumphant return! Weddings are always all about the bride and groom and their personalities but trends always make a sneaky entry.  Here we give you a run down of 2017’s most popular wedding additions!

  1. Garden Games-
    In between the ceremony and the food, there can be a time period where guests may be standing around waiting. To keep them entertained, why not incorporate some games into your day. Classic games such as bowls or croquet are great ways to get some light hearted competition going and adding children’s games in too, will keep them busy all afternoon!
  2. Fun Food-
    Gone are the days of traditional meals and reception food. Nowadays you can get away with whatever you fancy on your big day – something as simple as cones of chips and bacon butties are now wedding favorites. Play around with your menu to add fun foods that people wouldn’t think of. Sticking a tower of donuts in the center of your wedding is likely to be a huge hit!
  3. Going Green-
    With rustic, vintage inspired themes seeming to of taken off over the last few years, it’s no surprise that featuring greenery in your wedding has also become popular! Although bouquets for bride and bridesmaid are often considered tradition – now, people are including actual trees and shrubbery into their venues in order to bring the outside in!
  4. Injection of Color-
    Traditionally, weddings lack that real pop of color but now its paving it’s way as a staple within a wedding! Pastels started it but now all sorts of colorings are becoming a theme amongst 2017 weddings. From bold brights to shiny metallic – show stopping colors are the new black and white!

Trends come and go but putting your spin on some popular ideas can transform your wedding and make it truly a dream come true! If you use any of the trends we have mentioned, upload them to our bridal area for us to have look! 🙂


A massive thank you for providing an amazing and unique tent for our wedding. We were both so glad we went with the stretch tent for something a bit different and we couldn’t have been more pleased! All of our guests said how fabulous it looked! A big thank you also to everyone at Morton’s for helping and answering all of our questions in the run up to our big day. I definitely feel I know more about luxury toilets and generators! We would recommend Morton’s to anyone planning a wedding and wanting a tent which is a little different.

We were delighted with the marquee supplied by Morton’s Events.

Our guests were bowled over by the interlinking hexagonal “pods” (as we called them) and all commented on how special it made the wedding breakfast seem. We managed to accomodate 170 guests in plentiful space while making it seem intimate and cosy.

Mortons’ staff were incredibly helpful,flexible and obliging and decorated the marquee beautifully,with fairy lights and a fabulous starcloth ceiling over the dance “pod”.

Together with table decorations designed by my daughter,the effect created was magical,or as one guest put it “breathtaking.”

We would unhesitatingly advise any family contemplating a wedding in a marquee to opt for Morton’s.

Morton’s were professional, accurate, knowledgable and nothing seemed a problem.


The pods lend themselves in any situation and function and looked far better than we had both dreamed of.
Thank you Simon for making our day go without a hitch and for all your hard work and for what seemed like ours was the only function that year!

We had Mortons marques for our daughters wedding. With 200 guests we had 5 pods, a 5×5 square for the bar area and another as the entrance.

The seating for the guests wrapped round the dance floor giving a wonderful view to all and creating a great atmosphere. Mortons were so helpful always at the end of the phone and the whole day and all preparations went to plan. We would definitely use them again.
