Wedding Trends 2016
2016 is nearly upon us so we have compiled some of the top trends that are proving to be a hit for weddings next year.
Out with the wedding cake! Many couples are opting for more budget conscience ways of serving their cakes and doubling up the cake as third courses. Tiered cheesecakes, puddings, apple crumbles and cakes with more of an unusual flavour such as banoffee and coconut and raspberry are proving popular.
Another popular choice is to do away with the sweet cake altogether and replace with savoury options such as tiered pork pies, tarts, quiches as well as the already popular tiered cheese cakes.
The spring 2016 bridal runways were rife with trendy dresses that brides will adore. Amongst these were dresses detailing feathers, plunging necklines and 3D florals.
Dresses with three dimensional floral embellishments are proving popular with famous designers making their gowns romantic yet modern. Oversized lazer cut floral applique or tiny shimmering beaded blooms are sure to bring your gown to life!
We have seen much fashion in high street stores sporting the plunging necklines but it also proving popular on the bridal scene. It seems gone are the days of modest dresses and brides are opting for slinkier and sexier styles with plunging necklines and low backs.
Many couples are stepping away from the usual floral bouquet arrangements and choosing less structured wild flower arrangements. With flowers such as heather, ivy, daisies, sunflowers and wax flowers. Perfect for those spring and summer weddings, particularly the rustic themes.
Beautiful bouquets with pretty and delicate stems are trending right now with brides choosing bouquets with gypsophila, roses, freesias, sweetpeas and lily of the valley creating a beautiful and romantic look for brides. Perfect with classic and pastel weddings.
Something Blue – blue has always been a popular traditional wedding colour and pastel blues will be a hit next year.
Gemstone – deep gemstone colours are looking popular for 2016 especially amongst the rustic styled weddings. Gone is the hessian and in with the rich ruby reds, emeralds, topaz shades.
Rose Blush – this colour was a huge hit this year and is still looking popular for next year with its romantic pinky shades.
