So, you’re engaged – congratulations! It won’t be long before you are up to your neck in planning your dream wedding. One of the first things you’ll discover is that there are countless decisions to make about what kind of ceremony and reception you’ll have. If you’re interested in following the trends rather than keeping with tradition – or perhaps a combination of both – check out these hot trends today’s brides and grooms are increasingly including in their weddings.
Breaking from tradition
More and more, couples are electing to forego tradition and make their special day all about themselves – not what couples have done in the past. Brides are more likely to say, “I do” in suits or jumpsuits; brides and grooms are choosing honour attendants of the opposite sex instead of the same or even choosing to have none at all. Wedding dresses are less likely to be white, with bold, bright colours having their day in the sun, and themed weddings are in – think 1920s, rustic, or bohemian.
Spending less on the dress
Increasingly, brides are opting for budget-friendly dresses – there are so many great labels available now that there’s no need to break the bank with a designer dress (unless, of course, you want to). More often, brides are choosing cool looks that don’t cost an arm and a leg, putting that money toward other areas of their budgets instead.
Wedding cakes have gotten bolder and flashier, from artistic brushstroke cakes and cakes with sweet celestial details to hand-painted flowers, geometric accents, and metallic ombre, wedding cakes are becoming more and more amazing. The other food is also getting a makeover and includes such newer trends as pretzel bars, midnight snacks, and even pizza in lieu of a formal sit-down dinner.
Couples looking for a new twist on the bonbonniere are finding that potted plants are gifts their guests will cherish. There is also a rise in the appearance of ornate suspended flowers, while the minimalist end of the spectrum includes elegant single-stem proteas and simple, low-key arrangements.
Making an entrance
Hot air balloons are “in” in a big way, as are other exciting ways to arrive. Boats, choppers, and scooters are all trending when it comes to arriving at your nuptials, as well as light displays, balloon drops, and other creative activities.
