Your Wedding Day is one of the most important events of your life. You’ve probably been dreaming of becoming a bride since you were little. Now you are faced with trying to organise your dream wedding and wanting to check what the new wedding trends are.
New and Exciting Wedding Trends to Know About
Wedding trends change from year to year and wedding season to wedding season. Whether it is the style of bridal gown or floral centrepiece, the type of live music played at the reception, or style of canapé that is served, the industry is always evolving which is what makes it so exciting for brides and their future husbands-to-be.
Some of the latest weddings trends for 2016 include; swapping flower girls for grandmothers to throw petals and confetti outside the wedding ceremony location, uploading a wedding highlights video to Instagram and Facebook the day after the wedding so everyone can experience the event, and getting digital with the wedding cake by using image projection technology to beam custom images of the bride and groom onto their white wedding cake.
The 2-in-1 wedding dress, which does double-duty, taking a bride from the ceremony to the reception, is an emerging trend for 2016. Metallic palettes are bigger than ever with gold, silver and copper tones mixed in with the more traditional pastel shades. Couples are setting up a secondary bar called a ‘satellite bar’ at their reception with hand-picked cocktails and wine tasting options for guests.
