With a new year comes new wedding trends. From edgy coordinates to aerial photographs – 2015 is looking bigger and braver than ever. If you’re getting married this year, here are 8 top trends to watch out for:
The Two Piece – Out with the wedding dress and in with the two piece. As designers get daring and brides get braver, the “co ordinate” fashion trend will be a popular option in 2015. Creating a stunning, less traditional look – the two piece is perfect for brides seeking something unique and classy.
Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s timeless novels, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, we have come up with some quirky ideas that can transform a classical wedding into a wedding wonderland! To incorporate the Alice in Wonderland theme it would be a great idea to host the ceremony and reception outside so choose a venue that has lots of garden space, marquee and trees that can be decorated. For the reception host a Mad Hatters tea party by serving, aromatic teas, classy cocktails, sandwiches and cute cupcakes which have tags that say eat me on them, this will definatly go down a treat with your guests.
When it comes to personalising your wedding day it’s all about the little thoughtful details that help to bring your big day all together. So you will need to find a brilliant prop company to add that special touch and create quirky ideas to turn your wedding day into the most memorable event!
If you’re getting married in the spring season why not go for a barn style wedding! To create this look, ask the company to plant spring bulbs into wellingtons which will make the barn look cosy and homely. Also, to add rustic touches ask them to make handcrafted hearts to symbolize love and decorate the barn with rustic foliage which will tie in with the barn style. Another idea to use for the table decorations is too use vintage lanterns and wooden birds to make the barn full of charm and character.
Flowers can have the most impact on a wedding day from when the bride first walks into the church to when the guests sit down to their tables and see a beautiful flower table decoration. So why not look for a specialist company who delivers stunning flowers?
Whether your style is traditional, quirky, exotic or artsy, you can find a beautiful flower arrangement. When choosing flowers it is good to think seasonally so if you’re planning to marry in the summer season, flowers to consider are lilies, carnations, sunflowers, chrysanthemums, lavender and roses which would create colourful bouquets for a garden or country wedding. However, using flowers like delphinium, hydrangea and gerbera creates the perfect autumnal wedding whilst winter flowers include snowdrops, hyacinth, lilacs and irises.
Riche de Fleurs can create these elegant bouquets; simple bunches of flowers, to large scale designs using their supply of the freshest flowers by their extremely talented florists so they would be a great company to choose to arrange your flowers. Also they import a wide range of flowers from Holland to create beautiful designs for your special day.
So, you’re getting married and your guests are sending in their RSVPs. Time to think about table plans and decorations. Traditional place cards are seen up and down the country on reception tables so why not jazz up your tables with colour-themed personalised wine glass charms.
Each charm fits neatly around the stem of the wine glass and is personalised with your guest’s name. Read More
There has been a growing trend in the last year for ‘English’ flowers and natural designs. However there are various meanings for this:
True English flowers are UK grown, seasonal and are reliant on the UK weather conditions; delphinium, lily of the valley, freesias and sweet peas to name but a few. However the down side of this is that when we have a bad spring (such as this year) the seasons can be behind and therefore flowers a bride has requested may not be in flower yet, or if seasons are ahead of themselves and flowers that would normally be available in mid June have already flowered and finished by May.
