Many bride and grooms planning their big day are looking for new ideas and ways to make their special day more special . A good source of inspiration are to see what the current wedding trends are and to see if any of the wedding trends can enhance your special day.
What are the wedding trends for 2016?
The first wedding trend is make any concept or theme a reflection of you the couple. , To try to celebrate the things you love about each other and any particulars passions you have in your lives, this can then provide a narrative to your big day. It is important to consider what is important to you, and also what you want your wedding day to say about you. Once you have your theme or concept sorted it becomes the perfect backdrop for a wedding that could only ever belong to the two of you.
The second concept refers to the decoration of the venue, the current hot wedding trend is bring the outside in, a feel of back to nature and the local countryside within the the venue. It can bring a sense of warmth and tranquility and provides a great base for flowers and candles.
The next wedding trend is really following on from the previous trend. Floral arrangements are changing in their content and style, with a more wild country feel being seen in some of the floral displays. Floral styling is becoming increasingly free yet with a certain sculptural elegance producing something that looks effortlessness but has precision and a more harmonious and organic palette.
Sticking to this theme another one of the 2016 wedding trends is for a more informal range of bridesmaid attire. Historically the bridesmaids could been seen all in a uniform same dress and colour. The wedding trend now is more relaxed yet still to the colour scheme This can translate as all bridesmaids in the same colour but in different, but similar dresses or alternatively all in the same dresses but in different shades of the main wedding colour.
“Brand Bride and Groom” this is an interesting new wedding trend rather than choosing traditional wedding invites, save the date cards and other items from the traditional designs many couples are looking at what is known as a Brand story. This is where everything is considered to identify with the concept so it is recognisable as that of the special couple . As well as the wedding stationary favours etc, this could also include say the naming of the tables in the reception to reflect special places in the bride and grooms lives.
