If you’re going to one or more weddings this year, or planning your own nuptials, you’ll probably notice a few major trends.
Before the season changes, WeddingWire has put together some of the biggest trends you’ll likely see when couples tie the knot this spring.
Check them all out below.
This spring, expect to see many rattan wicker statement pieces at weddings.
These natural pieces “add texture to wedding ceremonies and receptions,” WeddingWire creative director Jeffra Trumpower said.
Trumpower recommended pairing rattan wicker accents with warm hues like reddish-brown and bright orange and metallics like pale gold and copper, as seen in Pantone and WeddingWire’s custom “Golden Hour” palette.
Couples are getting more creative with lighting.
Whether you string up rustic Edison bulbs alongside your floral arrangements or decorate with disco balls and pampas grass, there’s no wrong way to try this trend.
Vintage accents will have a major moment.
Vintage items like typewriters, vintage cars, quill pens, hand-held mirrors, and more add classic touches to contemporary weddings, Trumpower said.
As seen in Pantone and WeddingWire’s custom “Stroke of Midnight” colour palette, these accents pair well with metallics and darker tones like twilight blue, purple, and magenta.
Weddings are headed to the woods.
Couples are gravitating toward romantic forest venues with remote clearings surrounded by luscious trees, Trumpower said.
Many brides will accessorize with bows or barrettes.
This look can be either minimalist or glam, depending on your personal style. Try, for example, adding a small bejeweled barrette to a bob or tying an oversized flowing bow around a low ponytail.
Get ready to see large, colourful tropical blooms and anthuriums everywhere.
These plants can be incorporated into bouquets, table arrangements, decor, and more.
According to Trumpower, tropical blooms pair well with vibrant orange, teal, or turquoise hues, as seen in Pantone and WeddingWire’s custom colour palette “Paradise Found.”
Cake alternatives are sticking around.
While unconventional wedding cakes have been around for a while, Trumpower said the whimsical trend will stay strong this spring.
Many couples will serve drinks inside fruits.
These fun, portable drinks add “beautiful pops of colour” to your wedding day, Trumpower said.
