Wedding Trends of 2016

Time flies! 2016 is already well underway with some fabulous weddings in the works. Decor, florals, dessert, reception spaces, and more are on the list for 2016 trends. Ultimately what we have noticed is that these trends are all working toward creating more personalized and unique weddings that we cannot wait to see!

1. Creative Seating Arrangements

No longer will you see the large round tables when you walk into the reception, expect to see a variety of table shapes and layouts. More couples are opting for long rectangular or square tables to change things up, and the combination of table shapes can create an intimate and creative reception space.

2. Alternatives to the Traditional Wedding Cake

With some wedding cakes being pricey, couples have been moving away from the traditional wedding cake and have been trying out a variety of other options. Some alternatives we have seen are doughnut cakes, cake pops, pies, cheesecakes, and the list goes on.

The naked wedding cake has also emerged as an alternative. Naked cakes ditch the layer of icing, and often uses garnishes or flowers as decor. These cakes offer an organic and natural element and are often selected when the wedding theme is rustic or outdoors.

3. Mismatched Bridesmaids

Brides are increasingly letting their bridesmaids select their own gowns for the big day, and we must say the result is stunning. The bride simply selects a general colour scheme and the bridesmaids do the rest. Bridesmaids are able to select dresses in a variety of designs and colours that compliment their bodies, allowing them to feel confident and comfortable all day.
