If you’re a fan of fashion, you’ll be aware of the fact that trends change and evolve all the time. The same can be said for wedding themes. One year everyone’s going for shabby chic, the next they’re trying to recreate 19th century Paris. Pinks and peaches can be all the rage one season only to be replaced by monochrome the next. If you’re planning a wedding, and you’re looking for inspiration, here are some of this year’s hottest trends to try.
English Country Garden
If you love the idea of getting married outside, enjoying afternoon tea on the lawn and using mason jars for floral arrangements, this theme should be your cup of tea. This is a great option if you’re after a relaxed, informal affair, which is also really romantic. It can also be an excellent choice for budget-conscious couples, as you can save money on catering, venue hire, and decorations. Embrace your creative side and make your own wedding signs and centerpieces and add a rustic touch wherever possible. Swap a decadent iced cake with floral decorations for a layered sponge covered in strawberries and icing sugar, and use an old-fashioned suitcase to hold cards and gifts.
If you’re counting down the days to Coachella or you’re a fan of live music or outdoor events, a festival-themed wedding could be an ideal choice. Festivals are increasingly popular, and you can design your own to celebrate your special day. Create customized tickets for your save the date cards and invitations, use oversized LED letters to add a personal touch, and transport your guests in a tractor. Hire some mobile catering vans to provide burgers, hot dogs, and waffles, and crank up the sound system. Investigate porta potty rentals, and you’re good to go! The festival theme is fantastic for music fans, and those looking to enjoy a relaxed, casual outdoor affair. It’s also a fabulous way of recreating memorable times if you’ve been to festivals together in the past.
All the Glitz!
Do you dream of recreating a Hollywood gala for your wedding? If you’re keen to follow in the footsteps of the A-listers, now is the time to go bold with color choices and create an air of opulence. Have your guests be greeted on the red carpet with a glass of bubbles, and opt for oversized centerpieces for the tables. Gold, white and black work brilliantly for an Oscar’s style bash, and you can add sparkle with table confetti. Get the party started with a live band and set up a photo booth for those all-important snaps.
This may not seem like the most romantic theme, but it’s increasingly popular, particularly for city weddings. Think crisp, clean color palettes with matte metallic touches, and eye-catching light installations. If you’re hosting a wedding in a warehouse or a futuristic hotel, this could be the theme for you.
