Many have thought that blush was on its way out but after Pantone announced Rose Quartz as its colour of the year we expect this trend to be back and with a bang! Although rather than just the known pastel pink palette we are seeing couples incorporating more soft peachy pink hues even paired with soft sunset orange, coral and warm sherbert hues. It is a tone-on-tone explosion for this season; using slight varying shades of one colour will create a beautiful soft ombré effect – oh so romantic!
Warm tones like rose gold and copper are the most requested metallic accent shade for 2016 showing up in everything from Wedding stationary, the rings to table linen and even the food! Don’t worry we’ve been assured it’s edible dust! But this marries in perfectly with the blush flowers as brides are seeking a relaxed and elegant vintage vibe; step to the side rustic and welcome elevated chic glam! That means less mason jars and more mismatched, interesting antique vessels paired with less burlap and more bling!
We love that the country rustic look is being expanded and a more vintage vibe added, that said the structure of displays will not lose that oversized, wild natural look. Brides want that “freshly gathered from the garden” feel, so loose displays inside receptions and ceremonies will continue to give that inside-out look, expanding on to tables by mixing up each tables centrepieces is more and more in keeping with the wild natural bouquets that we’ve seen so far this year. Being the year of oh so natural a popular trend we’ll be seeing a lot of is hanging displays, yes you heard us, hanging! Suspended centrepieces, chair garlands and beautiful arches are going to be a feature prominently, it’s likely to largely be foliage based with a sprinkling of those beautiful blush flowers, these displays certainly add a real ‘wow’ factor!
The right mix of style and simplicity will be the cornerstone of fabulous wedding floral arrangements in 2016, remember it’s the year to shimmer and sparkle!
