So you’re planning your big day this year and its impossible to ignore the key trends and themes coming through for 2014. Pintrest and Blogs are awash with the finest weddings picking up on key colours, decor and dress trends.
The clear message were getting is Individualism and thinking out side that traditional wedding box. Here’s what were feeling for.
LETS GO OUTSIDE :
More and more brides are searching for a perfect scenic outdoor celebration venue – From woodland Glades, Beach Cliff Tops, Village Greens and even back gardens. It seems even our British weather can’t dampen the enthusiasm for planning an entireley outdoor day. Alot more relaxed get-to-gethers and simple gatherings are popping up where guests are asked to bring their own seat and picnic along. It’s perfect for the laid-back bohemian brides among you. Street food vans and home-made dishes are the order of these do’s.
Quirky and Unique. A big nod to nostalgia and anything your nan collects and you’ll have this wrapped up. Old vintage record players, mis-matched china and odd ornament cake toppers should do it. Retro items that will make you say ‘Oh I remember those’ are the perfect way to get guests talking. Let there be light with Giant Light up letters with kooky messages to your loved ones or you and your partners Initials on the dance floor.
Gorgeous nude, peach and soft pastels are still going to be arround – think almost sickly sweet colours of lilacs and lemon yellows too. But theres a real move to brides not getting so hung up on a colour ‘pallette’ as much. Anything goes – the more levels of colour, texture and prints the better! If its all topped off with a splash of glittering gold to really spell out PARTY it will be a colour sensation.
Oh its going to be a wonderfully rustic filled summer. And we of course cannot wait to get into the full swing of wedding season with so many of our brides marrying simply in Barns, farms and paddocks and remote churches. Relaxed is the only word for this type of wedding – gone are the days of match-matchy. Use traditional and distressed furniture and easy styling ideas from times gone by. Brides, nows the time to wear flowers in your hair and walk the asile bare foot to your guests seated on haybales. Afternoon tea and a barbe in the evening sun is the perfect food for the day.
If you’re looking for any decor or props for your day drop us an email to book an appointment to come and have a rummage in our garage – lots to see and inspire you. We can really help finish off the look!
