18 Feb Popular wedding themes for 2016
Tying the knot in 2016? Check out the top trending wedding themes to make your special day spectacular.
For those couples who want to add a country touch to their special day, the rustic-chic theme is perfect for you! Wood and timber is a huge part of this theme, so create a contrast with bright flowers and décor. Set tables with mismatched chairs and use differing centrepieces for each table. Choose softer fabrics such as lace and pastel colours. Don’t forget burlap, bunting, mason jars, fairy lights, vintage suitcases and old fashioned beverage dispensers to bring this adorable theme to life.
Top tip: Opt for a naked cake – simple, minimalistic and totally delicious!
This fairytale-inspired theme is truly something out of a storybook. Think lush greenery and flowers along with soft elements like wicker and lace. Lanterns, chandeliers and candles all create an atmospheric glow perfect for this theme (especially when hung from trees).
Top tip: Use vintage keys as ‘Save the Date’ memos or place cards for your guests.
Lovers of all things sun, sand and sea will adore a beachside wedding.
To cement the theme, think net wrapped mason jars and candles, seashells, rope, anchors, messages-in-a-bottle, parasols, timber and wood, burlap and bunting. Sea colours such as blue, white, green and pastels are gorgeous for this theme.
Top tip: Barefoot Bridal Sandals (because who wants to wear shoes in the sand?)
The 1920’s were all about glitz and glamour. Think flouncing feathers and sparkling diamonds. Glitzy headwear with ruffles or bling will cement this perfect 1920’s design. Pearls and sparkles are a staple with this theme, as is a colour palette of black, white, red and gold. And don’t forget to don your tuxedos, gentlemen!
Top tip: Vintage wedding cars make an amazing photography backdrop but also epitomise the glitz and glamour of the roaring 20’s.
