2016 wedding trends

Shimmering fabrics, teacup gowns, and 3D florals.

 

Mira Zwillinger’s 2016 collection covers all the bases – beautifully cut fabric florals, bright glimmering lace, chiffon and silks and knee-length dresses.

 

Monique Lhuillier’s newest 2016 collection also offers stunning inspiration for gowns as well. Full-length ball gowns are a hot trend. Going for a fairy tail wedding dress? Now is your time!


Go for the gold!

Make your wedding invites POP with a bold metallic – silver, gold, gunmetal or bronze! You can use foiled paper for invites or stamp using metallic ink.

Take the time to make your invites/save the dates something special and unique. Don’t just capture the essence of your wedding, incorporate the story of the couple to-be!

Fancy lighting and dreamy décor.

Metallics can also be incorporated into your décor. Silver vases, sparkling fabrics, gold accents – the possibilities are endless. The great thing about metallic is that it can accent any color! Adding whimsical lighting can also transform a late-day or indoor wedding into a total dream land.

Keep it simple – keep it fresh

 

Get your wedding flowers straight from your own garden! This trend is perfect for our everyday girls. Why not grow your own? It’s affordable, and you have total control over your blooms.

Not to mention this idea is very eco-friendly. Wild flowers are extremely easy to grow and can add amazing color to your wedding.


Eat well, enjoy a drink and have fun!

Beer bars! Self-serve taps of the bride and groom’s favorite beers can be a fun way to maneuver the wedding bar scene.

Get creative with your seating to keep your guests intrigued!
