Top Wedding Trends This Season on the Outer Banks

wedding trends on the beach

A minimally populated beach, lightweight sweaters emerging from closets, and cross island commutes cut in half are sure indications that fall is here on the Outer Banks. Summer may have passed, but wedding season is not over yet!  October implies that we are halfway through the wedding season, which means the trends of 2016 weddings have clearly developed on The Outer Banks.  Although every ceremony and reception is uniquely catered to each couple, there are a few rental items that are notably favored by Outer Banks brides and grooms this season.

Rustic/Country Themes

Many brides have chosen to intertwine country elements with their predominantly beach focused weddings. Couples have chosen to forgo the basic table with linen of their choice in favor of the Farm Table. Farm tables are heavier than the typical banquet table, yet feature fold-out legs that enable an efficient set up. The farm table emanates an earthy, rustic vibe.

Continuing the rustic chic pastiche, the newest addition to the Ocean Atlantic Event Rental supply is the X-Back Chair. This sturdy wooden chair sports a curved back that provides comfortable support for guests. The chair includes an ivory seat pad that securely ties to the back of the chair.This classic yet organic chair coordinates perfectly with the farm table to create an effortless rustic aura at your event.


Natural Tent Lighting

Protect farm tables, chairs, décor, and of course, your guests, by securing a protective structure. Some of the most sought after tents this season have been the clear top tent or tent with sky lights. Clear top tents allow the sun to shine through and the moon to illuminate your magical evening. The natural lighting enhances the natural ambiance of a rustic wedding while providing protection from the elements during your most enchanting and memorable evening.
