  • Wedding Planning – Wedding trends for 2016

    Planning your own wedding is exciting but can you imagine being part of planning someone else’s day? With NCC Home Learning’s Wedding Planner course, not only will you have the skills to create a perfect wedding day for you, but you could make a career out of it too. So with this in mind and to get you on the right track, we have the latest wedding trends for 2016.

    Like fashion, interior design and so on, there are trends that come and go. This also applies to wedding tends and themes. From must-have venues to the style of dress, theme of the day and more. With social media having an impact on how the modern-day wedding can look, there are many wedding trends for 2016 that promise to be big.

    Wedding Trends for 2016

    The wedding look

    Couples are wanting to give their guests an experience and there are many ways of doing this. Suffice to say, couples are looking beyond the ordinary and the accepted, striking out with some fun, romantic ideas:

    • Anything that glitters – there has been an increase in the use of metallic colours and tones in everything from icing on the cake to accessories of the reception venue. Silver, gold or even brassy tones are perfect if you love the versatility of anything that glitters.

    • The stuff of memories – couples are choosing to share deep, romantic memories with their guests including holding the wedding and celebrations at a place that is important to them. But if you can’t afford to whisk people to your favourite tropical island, bring elements of your love story to your venue.

    • Dream the dream – romance should be oozing out of every pore at a wedding and you do this by creating ambience. Lighting is key to creating a romantic glow to proceedings.

    • Take your seats! – but not with the traditional reception layout. Ditch the round conference tables and opt for long trestle like tables instead. Have lounging areas too, with delicious cocktails.

    The flowers

    No wedding is complete without the smell of fresh flowers. They also bring colour to a space too.

    • Go with the seasons – opt for what is in season and in your area but the look that many people predict will be on trend for weddings in 2016 is the ‘freshly picked, slightly rustic’ look. Wedding planner courses will look at all kinds of uses for flowers at a wedding, from the table arrangements to the bride’s bouquet.

    • One colour, different shades – Choose one colour, and opt for two or three different shades within one centre piece or cluster. Remember, uniformity between one table and another is not necessary, just keep to the theme. For example, if you want pink flowers, then opting for various shades in one bouquet or centre piece is, according to wedding florists, becoming an increasingly common request from the happy couple.

    • Edible interest – from coffee beans to seasonal fruits, florists are being increasingly asked to create centre pieces that include all kinds of hidden treats!

    • Not always flowers – you don’t have to just opt for flowers either. Small potted trees and shrubs are also delightful as table pieces.
    • Not everything needs to be the same – if nothing else, wedding trends for 2016 indicate that the need for everything to be prim, proper and uniform from one table to another has long gone, for the time being at least. Choose a theme, a colour etc. and wash your reception with this.

    The dress

    For many weddings, it is the bride’s dress that sets the tone and ambience for the day. Here are just a few upcoming wedding dress trends for 2016:

    • Traditional fit ’n flare – the ball gown is definitely in and if you have the stature to carry it, the bigger the skirt, the better.

    • Dare to bare? – some brides want sexy on their big day and this year, the bare back is being flaunted throughout many designer collections. Do you dare?

    • The LWD – the Little White Dress has, until now, always been in short supply in designer collections if it made an appearance at all. With many couples choosing a less than formal setting for their wedding, it seems obvious to have a pretty LWD.
