2016 has seen some new wedding trends when it comes to ceremonies and receptions! Gone are the days of traditional flowers and stationary. So what are the biggest changes we have seen this year?
Once upon a time every wedding reception was made up of small round tables full of guests seated with careful consideration. This year we have seen d a trend in having long rectangle tables, usually only he luxury of the wedding party. This change has allowed more guests to mingle together and more space for some epic centerpieces!
All about the centrepieces
Plain and simple centerpieces are a thing of the past, its all about volume and mixture! This years centerpieces have been made up of an abundant array of flowers as well as other things in the mix like pot plants and even food! One of the more creative trends has been centerpieces made up entirely of fruite and other things that your guests can snack on in between meals.
Themed wedding stationery
When it comes to wedding there are so many things that need to be send like RSVP cards, invitations, thank you cards etc. so why not stick to a theme! Having a garden wedding? How about the Bohemian Floral Suite? Stationery has also become less and less formal with most host going for a personal and casual approach.
Interesting place cards
Or rather something instead of cards completely. It has been a nice change to see the traditional place cards being replaced with things guests can keep such as wood table names or even favors with a tag attached that has the guests name on it.
It’s a simple trend but it is definitely wide spread! Rose gold is the color of the season with wedding everywhere incorporating the color where they can. Some have even gone as far as making entire tablecloths out of rose gold! Talk about fashion forward.
Babys breath used be called the filler flower but now its very in! A simple bunch looks heavenly when carried down the aisle. Some bridesmaids are even putting small amounts in their hair for a special touch. Other brides have carried a single long stemmed flower down the aisle to keep things simple but beautiful.
