Hues and Themes

This color has caught everyone’s eye because of its soothing appearance as well as symbolic value in terms of new beginnings, renewal, energy, and fertility. This color fits beautifully with the rustic theme which is trending currently. ‘Back to nature’ barnyard weddings with intricate floral arrangements and recreation of the woodland feel with pinecones and maple leaves are highly sought after by many couples.

Hanging flowers look natural and stunning at the same time when they are placed in the middle of the room. Usually, centerpieces become a hindrance to conversation, but hanging flowers do not come in the way at all and look great as well. The combination of marble and metal in various elements of the decor is being chosen by couples because of its clean and cool texture. Marble dance floors and metal urns are very much in demand.


Interesting giveaways and entertainment

Couples are also opting for lipstick touch-up bars and specialty sip stations to make the event exciting for their guests. Guests receive welcome packages that contain essentials and sweet treats after dinner. Throughout the reception, they can enjoy the entertainment offered by magicians, tarot card readers, and sketch artists.


A few more innovative trends:

  • Asking for cash contribution from guests to support causes instead of traditional gifts.
  • Bite-sized pastries in unconventional flavors to pass around after dinner.
  • Cape-style dresses instead of traditional gowns for brides. Dark colors like mauve and burgundy along with textures like herringbone and tweed patterns for men.
