Watch out for these wedding trends

Wedding trends consistently change and evolve season after season, so let’s look at some of the hottest wedding trends that are on the rise right now.

Embrace Dramatic and Edgy Colour Palettes

Introducing flashes of bold, moody hues can act as an excellent contrast to the soft textures and blush hues that are traditionally associated with weddings. Rich blues and deep greens will contrast with pale pinks and light ivories beautifully, and if you want to stay one step in front of this trend, why not try mixing colours that might not traditionally be paired together?

Navy blue and emerald green is an excellent example of a non-traditional colour palette that will work beautifully for a wedding, particularly in the autumn months. Similarly, a palette of pinks and purples will suit both early spring and high summer weddings wonderfully. Setting out a dress code along with your invitations will help you to ensure that your colour scheme runs seamlessly throughout every memory from your special day.

Keep it Classic

Although many couples are opting to introduce contemporary accents into their wedding day, a markedly more traditional approach is also back in fashion. If you’ve always dreamt of having a traditional ballroom wedding or a big day focusing on an elegant dinner party, you’re in luck because silver candlesticks, crystal stemware and monogramed napkins are very much in style right now. If you’re attending a traditional wedding this season, there are a plethora of beautifully designed contemporary wedding guest dresses available from AX Paris to browse at www.axparis.com/collections/wedding-guest-dresses.

Balloon Walls

Balloons might once have been the reserve of children’s birthday parties, but their ability to make a great impression at every event and occasion is finally being recognised. With the potential to integrate everything from balloon arches to exciting selfie stations into your big day, your creativity certainly won’t go unnoticed by your guests.

Make a Statement with a Show-Stopping Cake

The wedding cake is an iconic part of every wedding, so why not take the opportunity to make an eye-catching statement that your guests are certain to remember? If you are opting for a fondant cake, pale blue, soft grey, gold and warm bronze tones are always elegant, but there are a variety of other ways to dress a cake that will make a real impact for all the right reasons.
