At The Little Lending Co. we’re all about embracing your individualism and taking a side-step away from what your wedding ‘should’ look like. This year especially I’m sure couples will be infusing more charm and character of their own, their quirks, interests and loves for more relaxed, stylish and unique days.
….But, there are 4 key themes we seem to be pinning daily and they’re making us really excited about the year ahead. We’re not saying stick to the trends and we love a couple that do just the opposite but these ideas are making us crazy about 2015 and what our couples will be creating.
Oh yes! Colour pops and fluro highlights – tell your guests to bring their sunnies as it’s about to all get a little brighter. Loving the popping pinks and luminous oranges that have been paired up with shimmering gold highlights all over Pinterest. Think Dip dyed napkins (*blog post coming soon*) striking and geo-metric patterned table runners, modern mid-century furnishing and more cacti and succulents you can shake a stick at. Hanging Himmeli shapes and eccentric bold florals. Pop a couple of plastic flamingos in the mix and you have the perfect nod to a modern, hot summers celebration. Definatley not a look for the faint hearted this one.
For the pair that love the outdoors, our freedom seekers. Free Spirited and bohemian decor is going to move forward into 2015. We’re excited about seeing more beautiful boho brides and their boys create the ultimate in laid-back days. Kick off your shoes and tie feathers in your hair. Add natural, textural and found items through your decor. Dream Catchers as a focal point, Antlers, drift wood and pebble place settings against true linen napkins and runners. An easy palette of mushroom and dove greys subtly paired with gem stone pinks and well-trod faded colours from traditional persian rugs under foot. Divine.
A huge fan here of industrial settings and go mad over a warehouse wedding. Bare brick walls, exposed copper pipes and a big lighting statement is what you’ll need for this look. Bring beaten up eclectic furniture for lounging areas for guests. Cool concrete accents and copper containers feel new. Quirky catering vans and stations really makes this a winning cool kids dream trend. Use old palettes for feature walls or bars and work in metal drawers and filing cabinets *coming soon to our hire range* for something different for guests to find their favours. Still adore a string of festoon lights to brighten up the evening.
I am always for ‘Less is More’ – I really believe in the ethos of the simpler the better. Minimal decor and fuss creates for more focus on the newly weds. White on white has a pure ceremonial quality about it. White cloths, flowers and dress. Totally Timeless. I love the botanical and slightly over-grown elements that can add an etherial feel for this trend – over-run glasshouses or greenery hanging above the tables or tubing trails of green and white on tables. Add clear vessels and glass bottles with single stems in nooks. Bare wooden table tops and rustic ‘home-made’ displayed finger foods for the wedding breakfast keep everything easy. Bring a whole lot of white candle light in the evening for a subtle finish.
