Top Wedding Trends of 2016
2016 is already the year of unique weddings but undoubtedly there are a couple of key trends already dominating social media starting with the ‘au natural’ theme. Brides are more frequently returning to the beauty of nature with more extravagant floral arrangements dominating the décor in their venues which are increasingly moving outdoors. Couples now look more for in season and local flowers to create an ethereal and ‘wild’ aesthetic. Green table runners and wedding arches are definitely the way to go this year.
Vintage themes are one of the most popular themes every year and 2016 seems to be no different. With Metallic colours being big this year coupling this with vintage style pearls, sequins and lace will create the perfect look. Metallic and sequin colours look timeless in every aspect of your big day whether it be dashes of gold on your desserts, hints of gold within your bridesmaid’s dresses or bronzed additions to your floral arrangements.
For a more relaxed vibe, bohemian themed weddings might be the way to go. Instead of the classic tables and chairs spread across the room you may way to opt in for a cocktail lounge feel with comfortable seating closer together to make it more intimate. The use of boho flowers and ribbon are also great ways to express your own style and who you are as a couple.
Movie themed weddings have always been popular, especially in the last few years with the stunning wedding set up seen in the Twilight movies. The woodland ceremony surrounded by twinkling fairy lights and white décor contrasting against the dark greens and browns creates a fairy tale like setting.
Pastel colours are also making a return in 2016 with pantone the renowned authority of colour revealing that the combination of Rose Quartz and Serenity are the colours of 2016. Pastel colours always look beautiful against pure white at weddings. You may want to consider using an array of pastel colours for the bridesmaid’s dresses and matching bouquets. They also make an excellent choice for table dressing and chair covers to complete your theme.
