8 Spring Wedding Trends
1. Home Away From Home
Having something that is a node of home, incorporated in the wedding looks like it will be a major trend for spring weddings this year. This might be something such as a brooch from a grandmother or a repaired wedding gown from the mother’s wedding, or a bouquet of flowers that is native to the couple’s hometown.
2. The New Venues
Couples planning for a rustic wedding will look for places where the outdoors plays a significant role. From barns to vineyards, anticipate serene receptions and ceremonies. With the popularity of destination wedding venues, couples are becoming more creative in choosing their wedding venues. Places such as the mountains are becoming big destination wedding locations. Couples are trying to do things in a unique way and give their guests an exceptional and memorable experience.
3. 3D florals
Center stage in this year’s spring weddings is 3D florals. For those who wish to have a more romantic look for their special day, incorporating some 3D floral appliqués seems to be the way to go. Flowers aren’t just for centerpieces and bouquets. Currently, fashion-forward brides are going for painted floral wedding gowns plus 3-D flower details which are both trending on the bridal runways.
One of the secrets to having a gorgeous floral arrangement for weddings is the right mix of style and simplicity. The flower layout on the bouquet for the bride and reception tables, adds both a personal statement and meaning to cherished loved ones.
Spring flowers that are likely to be incorporated are sweet peas, lilacs, hyacinths, and peonies. Selecting in-season stems offers the best flowers. A proper floral layout is sure to attract guests’ attention and impress them with such a subtle but artistic look. It’s a perfect approach to adding in natural beauty into the big day.
5. The Cake
The newest in wedding cake trends is entirely on expressing the couple’s love story. The cake should not only be towers of tasty buttercream, but should feature one of the best romantic chronicles or quotes of the couple’s relationship.
6. Wedding Gowns
The biggest spring wedding trend is in wedding gowns; wedding dresses have become much sexier than ever before. Brides are now more daring and really want to make a grand fashion statement with their stunning gowns. A gorgeous sexy back or a low cut, such as Princeville, is a perfect illustration of how the trend is being embraced. Expected to trend as well are wedding gowns with high thigh slits.
In this year’s spring weddings, look out for shimmer and shine. Pastel and metallic colors tend to be very common picks for this season for a luxe look, or mix with neutrals such as gray and taupe to achieve elevated simplicity.
This style is integrated into linens and fabrics to ensure the colors maintain a soft look. Incorporating metal in a selection of centerpieces, chairs, and chandeliers, is also acceptable. Blended with other lighter pieces, these bold touches will showcase an eclectic, but contemporary look.
8. Heritage Dishes
When it comes to food there will continue to be a diverse selection of dishes served at weddings. Serving favorite dishes or food from ethnic backgrounds is a new way to make weddings more unique, and reflect much of who the couples are. Nowadays, couples are surprising their guests with a local favorite, for instance, serving cheese-steaks in Philadelphia. The idea, much like the home away from home, is to make guests feel like they are in their home- towns.
