July 11, 2016

If you are getting married this year, then you are certainly clamoring for that latest wedding trend details. Well, you’ve arrived at the right page because here are the top 17 must-haves for a 2016 wedding!
Metallic Color Palettes.
Nudes are certainly outdated this year. Make way for the bold metallic shades that will rule the aisle of every wedding celebration this year. There are many ideas on how you could utilize them to your event. Metallic hues can be ethereal, whimsical, and elegant. Imagine a black-tie wedding mixed with silver centerpieces and decoration. Copper sky lanterns to end an exceptional outdoor wedding or a rustic themed vintage wedding by the barn house. These shades are easy to work with since they can blend any type of wedding theme you’ve chosen. Think of shiny blue icings and rose-hued cocktails.
Wedding Sparkler Exits
Grand Wedding Exits have become a fast growing trend that is a must have at your wedding. The 36inch wedding sparklers are the most popular among most brides and grooms. We offer aesthetically pleasing additions for your complete package. The wedding sparkler buckets hold up to 72 wedding sparklers perfectly but a maximum of 144 wedding sparklers. The wedding sparkler tags also add a great touch of a fairy-tale by having a custom wedding tag just for your wedding day. The wedding sparklers make your wedding so much more enchanting it escalates the need of an amazing photographer to capture those precious moments. "Let love sparkle" and "Sparks will fly at .." are just a few of the texts we offer. 20 inch wedding sparklers are also a great choice for your guest and small children to use with ease. To top off the night, dessert sparklers keep your guests attention and surrounds you with the delicate sparklers you dream of.
Hometown Heroes.
Although destination weddings are still a popular trend, many couple opt to choose a location which may not have a breathtaking backdrop like the Caribbean, but it is something that’s close to their hearts. Getting married on the place where you first met like your college alma mater and having your reception to the restaurant where you had your first date will surely bring back good old memories. Sometimes, it’s not all about the glamorous location but the sentimental value it offers.
Lighting Galore.
Lights play a great role in setting a romantic mood for your wedding. A simple fluorescent light bulb is no longer applicable for today’s modern wedding ventures. It takes experts to create the lighting effect you are looking for. Transforming light colors, rays, and strength depending on the emotion is a must have for weddings.
Creative Seating Plans.
Instead of opting for large round tables, consider utilizing rectangular tables or smaller round tables. Your wedding is not a conference where in you will be at the center and your subordinates is strictly seated formally. It would be fun if you would go for a more casual approach. You would want an idea that there is a specific group of person in each table waiting to congratulate you.
Freshly Picked Flowers.
No matter what season you intend to get married, there will be plenty of floral choices for you to choose from. If you envision your wedding to have that “wild” look, then you must seek help from Casy Schwarts and Kit Werts of Flower Duet in Los Angeles. Flowers are a timeless element of all wedding celebrations. Free form bouquets and delicate centerpieces are comprised of big and small blossoms with various colors. To add prominence, the use of spiky flowers or fruiting vines will be an advantage.
Centerpieces that are Non-Floral.
Flowers are effortlessly beautiful. But due to its expensive price range, they are limited only for bridal bouquet purposes. There are many materials that could replace traditional floral centerpieces. Ferns, lavender sprigs, succulents, potted trees, and other decorative are not just only for anchoring flower arrangements. They are now transformed into a focal point of decoration. It is highly affordable and a unique idea to use those branches as a main decorative idea for a centerpiece by adding crepe paper flowers or sparkly jewels.
Glitzy and Glammed Up Invitations.
Don’t let people ignore your invitations by making them shine using glittering materials. A sparkly wedding invitation is a perfect addition for a metallic wedding theme where warm tones like rose gold and copper are the trending shades for 2016 according to Amber Harrison, a style expert for Wedding Paper Divas.
Funky Fonts. Fonts like Harrington,
Monotype Corsiva, and Courier New are no longer in demand for wedding invitations. You need to use striking fonts that would really capture the interest of your guests. A fresh new approach is using multiple fonts on a single page as emphasized by Gourmet Invitations.
Cocktails for All. Control the alcohol expenses in your wedding by serving two selection of cocktails upfront instead. If you would opt for a mini bar, chances are you will be paying extra for the bartender and guests might put the charge on your tab. At the end of the event, you might be surprised on how much you are going to pay for the alcohol alone.
Bring Back the Gueridon Service.
Gueridon service is a unique way of serving guests at an event. Guests are still stuck in their seats as they wait for their food to arrive. But instead of serving the viand in plates, the servers will arrive at the table along with their carts where guests have the power to customize their chosen appetizers and desserts. It can be everything from ceasar salads, pastas, gelato, doughnuts, or milk and cookies.
Cocktails with Food.
Instead of pairing wine with food, you can start cocktail hour by serving one-bite tacos with margarita shooters, caviar spoons and vodka shots, Italian meatballs and a mini glass of chianti, and cold meats and cheese with a local draft beer.
Naked Cakes.
We are all accustomed on wedding cakes that are covered in frosting or fondant. However, the latest trends on wedding cakes are either unfrosted or partially frosted. It might be an unusual site but wait till you see that it’s covered with berries and fresh flowers. It’s certainly a new concept that must be incorporated on any occasions as mentioned by Nataly from the Great Dane Baking Company in Long Beach California.
Brush Strokes.
Instead of plainly announcing your wedding motif and dress code in words on a small portion of your invitation, why not use an actual paint. This will help your guests visualize on what shade of blue you are really aiming for.
Musical Variety.
Gone are the days where your only option for music for your wedding is limited between a DJ and a band cover. Many couples nowadays are searching for a fresh perspective on providing a new way of entertainment for their one of a kind event. It can be a cabaret singer that will surely serenade the guests during cocktail hour, a Jazz band for the dancing part, and a retro orchestra that will serve as a musical background while your guests are having dinner.
Epic Action Shots.
Even photography and videography have adapted amazing editing skills and creativity to highlight each moment of the event. There will be a great difference when you compare wedding photos 10 years ago to present. Pre-nuptial photos and same day edit videos weren’t even a thing back then. You need an experience photographer to capture your sparklers shots. Light painting and frame capture skills are needed to successfully capture the 36 inch wedding sparklers at the exit, dessert sparklers at the reception, and 20 inch sparklers during your photo shoots. But now, even aerial shots is a must. According to Joann and Mark Anthony of Nineteen Studios, couples want their images as if it is telling a story.
