2016 WEDDING DECOR TRENDS WITH BROOKLYN BRIDAL
Wedding decor. It’s kind of our thing. From bold backdrops and statement florals to the smallest personalised detail, we love seeing how our brides incorporate these special little touches into their day. Last year we saw an invasion of minimal style, with foliage runners and lots of hanging decor… but what do we think is going to be hot in 2016? We teamed up with fab new decor brand Brooklyn Bridal to bring you our top tips for the hottest 2016 wedding decor trends!
Forget chintzy florals, the trend for 2016 is bright and bold florals – and the best thing is they can be incorporated into practically every wedding style (who doesn’t love flowers?!)
If floral is your theme, then Brooklyn Bridal’s “English Rose” totes and matching, handmade cotton pouches are the perfect ‘take home’ gift for guests. Fill the tote with treats and leave in your guests hotel rooms for a sweet surprise when they arrive! Classic luggage style name tags with special ribbons look fab tied to napkins or wine glasses to guide bums to seats. This is just one of multiple prints on offer, and if you can’t find what you are looking for, they also offer a bespoke printing service!
We jumped for joy at Pantone’s colour picks for 2016, and adore the soft pastel shades of Rose Quartz and Serenity blue.
Brooklyn Bridal’s ‘Leanne’ shoe bows in Bluebell continue the ‘Serenity’ trend and also add a little of the classic adage… ‘something blue’! Work in an elegant single wrap bracelet in Persian Blue – both items make lovely gifts for bridesmaids.
Continuing their popularity from 2015, rose gold and copper are two of this year’s hottest metallics.
This delicate mini pearl and rose gold wrap has a super feminine feel and works beautifully with bridesmaid dresses (as well as on the beach!)
STYLED PLACE SETTINGS
Bride’s are livening up boring venue crockery with beautiful styling – and it needn’t cost a bomb!
Style up your table place settings with Brooklyn Bridal’s hand-sewn pom poms. Scatter amongst your flowers, cinch napkins and add a hand-written name place tag to each, with colour coordinated ribbon. Favour pouches with the bride and groom’s names on are an extra treat- fill with something personal to you or just some delicious macaroons!
We’ve been seeing cocktail bars and bar carts pop up more and more over the past year or so, and we think 2016 could finally be the year they hit the big-time.
Decorate with a handful of glittering mini pom poms and a selection of colour coordinated ribbons – these look fab cut into lengths and draped from one side. Get crafting some fabulous drink stirrers; simply tie a cut length of this luxury glitter ribbon to a wooden stick and you have yourself a glitzy party stirrer, especially fun for photos.
