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!

FLORALS

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!

BARELY-THERE PASTELS

We jumped for joy at Pantone’s colour picks for 2016, and adore the soft pastel shades of Rose Quartz and Serenity blue.

We’re sure they’re going to be a hit with brides this year too, so incorporate them into your pastel paradise with luxury satin, gros grain or sheer ribbons in Moonstone and Bluebell.

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.

ROSE GOLD

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!

COCKTAIL BARS

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.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
