The new year will be upon us faster than you think, with only about 30 more shopping days till Christmas, its closing in. It is also engagement season! So heres a few ideas on what will be trending next year in weddings.
1. Glitter on your Stationery Out, Foil Stationery In
Foil stationary really adds a pop of elegance and is stunning. The metallics are so bold and we love it.
2. DJ Out, Mixing Live Music with your DJ in
Best of both worlds for sure! You still have a your dance party but the fun and entertainment of live music at a fraction of the price of a full band. Scott Youngberg is a great musician that we work with often that offers this option.
3. Chiavari Chairs Out, Ghost Chairs and Crossbacks In
Chivari chairs are getting a bit tired now that everyone has them. I still find that they do have an elegant look, the ghost chairs and cross backs are awesome! Two completely different looks with ghost chairs being modern and chic and the crossbacks being rustic and elegant. Both styles a bit on the pricey side so be sure to make room in the budget for them.
4. Fluffy Light Colors Out, Deep Jewel Tones In
So excited for this trend to take hold, rich jewel tones really look stunning and dramatic on the beach.
5. Sit Down Dinners Out, Stations and Cocktail Receptions In
This has been coming for awhile now. As weddings stray from the formalities more and more, and guest lists include more friends and less family (sorry moms), couples are doing whatever they can to make it a party. Many couples want a relaxed and mingling atmosphere at the wedding reception which is better achieved with stations or roving dinners.
6. Round Tables Out, Lucite and Mirror Tables In
Keeping with the idea of tossing the formalities aside when planning a wedding, banquet round tables are starting to not be "in" anymore. Long tables, square tables and even a mix of everything has been popular in 2015. However, the lucite and mirror tables are how you kick your wedding up from a 9 to a 10.
7. Barns Out, Blinged Out Barns In
I love the look of a barn wedding, but being that we are in the Florida keys, we don't have to many barns. It looks awesome though!
8. Mason Jars and Burlap Out, Mismatched Flower Holders In
lets be honest, mason jars and burlap have been done to death really, glad to see something new on the horizon.
9. Large Guest Lists Out, Intimate Parties In
Lets face it, its really the best way to keep your budget in check. Intimate weddings are so special especially at a destination.
10. Full Day Video Footage Out, Same Day Edits In
Perfect for our instant gratification culture. Same day edits give you a fun wedding day montage to show at the reception so everyone get see anything they may have missed.
Keep an eye on this space as I,m sure we will be seeing some of these awesome new trends in our weddings to come in 2016!!
