The Biggest Wedding Trends of The Year

If you ask us, 2016 is going to be a great year for weddings! Brides are breaking away from tradition and opting for unique décor and details that have us saying OMG. Take a look at the biggest trends on the horizon for the New Year:

1. Non-Floral Centerpieces
Don’t get us wrong, we have nothing against flowers. However, there’s something to be said about a centerpiece that kicks custom to the curb. From living trees to green garlands, this year non-floral centerpieces have stolen the show.

Leave it to a little thing called lighting to totally transform your space. This year, brides are paying extra attention to this décor element and the results are illuminating. Show-stopping lighting installations are surprising guests from overhead and knocking them off their feet.

3. Wild Flowers
Who says your flowers have to be perfectly compact? The next big thing in florals is the free-flowing style of loose arrangements. Organically inspired and oh-so-chic, this look will have you feeling as if you just stumbled into a secret garden. 

4. Putting On The Giitz
What girl can resist a little bit of sparkle? Metallic accents are popping up in all different kinds of wedding accents and are certainly getting guests attention! From wedding invitations to glittery desserts, this is one trend that’s going to shine bright.

Wedding cakes have officially turned into works of art. The cake designers who create these masterpieces are nothing short of artists and they’re showcasing the technique to prove it. From soft watercolors to bold graphic designs, this trend is a decidedly sweet grand finale to your wedding day.
