After seeing more “what’s the latest trend” articles, I wanted to see what wedding ideas new and popular in our area (Dayton, Ohio). And where best to find this out, but to go right to the source.
Thanks to some of our local wedding pros, here’s what’s new in their areas of expertise.
Textured Wedding Cakes
Textured wedding cakes are still quite popular, from structured art deco-ish designs to an icing with a rough finish.
Bobbi and Brittany with ele Cake Co. tells us that one of the more unexpected, yet popular wedding cake designs (and a unique texture) is their Geode Wedding Cake.
Elegant. Stunning. Simple. And totally gorgeous!
Geode wedding cakes look like the real thing, but are completely edible, made from rock candy and granulated sugar.
Slow-Motion Video Booths
Photo booths combine a fun activity with a nice take-home for wedding guests.
So, what’s better than a photo booth? A 240 frame per second HD Slow-Motion Video Booth, of course!
Mark’s Camera Bag’s Slo-Mo Video Booths are a big hit , with guests showing their best dance moves, tossing confetti, making outrageous faces, and overall, having an awesome fun time. A 40” monitor that sits outside the booth allows all of your guests to enjoy the live action.

Yes, guests get a ‘take-home,’ receiving a download of their slow-mo session. And the happy couple get a final edited production of all sessions with special edits and music on DVD.
Thematic Elements in Unexpected Places
Themed weddings are still popular, with the theme commonly being expressed in the couples’ choice of color pallette, centerpieces, and menu choices.
But what about your ceremony?
Rev. Cindy Lee Carver embraces different wedding themes by donning coordinating attire – including Cosplay, Halloween, Steampunk, and recently Gandalf from Lord of the Rings.
Besides the off-beat and themed weddings, she also specializes in officiating traditional, inter-faith, humanistic, alternative, non-traditional, and LGBTQ weddings.
Up In Lights
Sure, you can put your initials on top of your cake, and have your monogram projected on your dance floor or printed on your programs.
Why not put your initials up in lights – classic theater marquee letter lights?
Event Lites specializes in these unique, four feet tall décor pieces – including numbers, letters, and some symbols.
Light up your night with your initials. Spell out Mr. & Mrs., Love, or even your names.
The possibilities are endless.
Perfect for helping you build the right environment and decor for your event. Use them for:
• A modern ceremony backdrop
• A fun, diy photo booth backdrop
• A cool prop for your engagement photos
• Reception décor
Hearts, Joy, Love!
