As we say goodbye to 2015, we look ahead with excitement at the fresh new nuptial trends that await us in 2016. Here are six of our favorites:
BACK TO NATURE
More and more, nature-loving couples are taking to the great outdoors to tie the knot. State parks are a new “venue” that’s popped onto the 2016 scene. The Twin Cities are filled with awesome parks, farms, and vineyards – all of which provide jaw dropping photo ops. One of our favorites is our new signature venue, the Garden Room of Eden Prairie!
Brides are getting bolder with the prints, cuts, and colors of their dresses. Sheer long sleeves, bold colors, and edgy separates or slits are all gaining popularity. Check out our pinterest page to see some stunning ideas for fashion-forward brides.
MIX THOSE METALS
Nothing pops the oh-so-trendy neutral color palette better than some glitz! From bridesmaid dresses to centerpieces, expect to see mixed metals, mercury glass, and glamorous beaded details everywhere in 2016.
With a majority of weddings taking place at the reception venue, nothing sets the tone better than greeting guests with a signature cocktail or mocktail. “We had so many compliments on our wedding, but the most common was the pre-ceremony champagne! It really put a smile on everyone’s face and set the tone for the wedding.” – Mintahoe 2015 Bride
THE RUSTIC BOUQUET
Brides seem to be shying away from prim & proper bouquets. More and more, florists are getting requests for loose or cascading bouquets with unique flowers and foliages for a dramatic look.
A NEW ANGLE
A professional photographer will handle all the necessary images that will last you a lifetime, but for some fun memories, throw some selfie sticks on each table complete with your wedding hashtag. Your guests will capture some great moments that you may have missed! Another fun idea is to strap a GoPro on man’s best friend, like this couple from Tennessee.
