In the past few years, many brides have sought to recreate their very own version of the royal wedding of Princess Kate and Prince William. Other brides have turned to Pinterest boards for inspiration during the process of planning for their wedding. Every year, different wedding trends become incredibly popular among couples. Here are the most popular wedding trends of 2016.
One popular wedding trend of 2016 is the use of metallics. Surprisingly, metallics are very versatile for the purposes of decoration. Some examples of metallic decorations include the use of copper lanterns for an outdoor reception and the use of gold wedding bells as table decor. Metallic decorations can be ethereal, elegant, natural, or whimsical. Evident by the popularity of the new rose gold Macbook and iPhone, rose gold is an incredibly popular color, especially among women. Unsurprisingly, rose gold is popping up in the vast majority of weddings, no matter the theme or venue.
Long, Rectangular Tables
Traditionally, couples have used large, round tables for the reception layout. However, many couples have noted that the use of such tables tend to make receptions feel more like a conference event. As a result, more and more couples are opting for the use of long, rectangular tables for a more intimate vibe. Other couples use both long tables and smaller round and square tables. For after-party and cocktail hours, couples are resorting to entire lounge areas.
In the past, couples would opt for traditional wedding flowers like roses, tulips, and the calla lily. However, a popular wedding trend for 2016 is the use of in-season and local flowers for arrangements. Some couples choose to request a "wild look" for their flower arrangements. The "wild look" refers to arrangements with freshly picked flowers with blossoms of different sizes and colors. Fruiting vines and spiky flowers may be used for the arrangements.
Food as Decor
Another popular wedding trend of 2016 is the use of food as decor. Many couples are asking their florists to use elements like fragrant herbs and coffee beans for garlands and centerpieces. Smaller fruits and vegetables are also used as colorful decor for weddings.
Without a doubt, this year has seen many new wedding trends. If you're planning an Idaho wedding of your own for this year, you should consider the trends discussed above and consider adding your own personal touch.
