Five Romantic Wedding Trends to Set the Mood

ROMANTIC WEDDING TRENDS.  These days, more and more wedding couples are creating simplistic yet eye-catching wedding décor for their indoor and outdoor ceremonies. It’s not “out with the old and in with the new.” It’s about taking what’s considered old-fashioned and recreating a more modern organic atmosphere. We can find these recreations in the Lighting, Flowers, Music, Color, and Seating. These five elements come together to produce a magical event that is sure to look great in photos and be remembered for a lifetime.

MUSIC. Not everyone is into the timeless wedding song “Here Comes the Bride” during the march down the aisle. People have started to fuse their own individual style into the wedding ceremony by choosing to walk down the aisle to more modern music. Some popular choices include Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years”, “Runaway” by The Corrs and “Make You Feel My Love” by Adele. Each song produces its own romantic ambiance different from the more traditional ceremony setting. And what’s great about it, is that you can choose a song that fits your own style and represents you as a couple and your relationship.

LIGHTING. There are really simple ways to create a charming and special ambiance. Letter lights are fun and trendy and can be used in photos for a more playful setting. String lights are great for both indoor and outdoor receptions and can be used in multiple ways: create an icicle effect or put them in trees or string them across the garden or gazebo and you instantly have a romantic atmosphere. Colored bulbs are one of the best ways to add warmth and you can even match the color of the bulbs to go with your wedding color scheme. Edison lights are a huge trend for 2016. They add a vintage touch to your reception. Use them to light an archway or pathway or hang them above tables. Hanging candles are great for an outdoor reception. Hanging them from trees adds warmth and creates a lovely and unique vibe.

FLOWERS. From pastels to deep hues with a touch of green, mixing and matching flowers is a great way to add texture and color to your table décor. Going along with an organic aesthetic, wedding couples are asking for table centerpieces with seasonal flowers that have a freshly picked from the garden or field look. There is no need to have every centerpiece look the same. Having different sized centerpieces with different flowers adds a little spice to your reception room. Another great way to add texture is with cacti and herbal plants such as lavender and rosemary which also add a pleasant aroma and guests can take them home at the end of the day leaving less waste and keeping it ecological. Even bouquets are having a more “wild” look. Brides are breaking away from the traditional tight-bunched round bouquet to a fuller and wider bunch with fresh blossoms, herbs, and other flora.  

COLORS. Another romantic wedding trend that’s gaining popularity is Gold, Silver, and Rose Gold metallic hues. They’re eye-catching and add a touch of shine to your reception. From tablecloths to candle holders to flower vases, metallic hues are making more and more of an appearance at wedding receptions. Pastels are also going to be very popular this year during the spring and summer seasons. Pantone 2016 color of the year, Rose Quartz, combined with the complementary Serenity, an elegant blue-violet shade, is a great option and provides a relaxed and beautiful wedding environment  

SEATING. Family style receptions are growing in popularity. By having a seating arrangement with long tables end-to-end you can create a more personal environment and it looks great in photos. People are shying away from the seating arrangements where smaller groups are put at separate tables and embracing a more friend and family-centered atmosphere. Ultimately, wedding décor consists of important elements which help express who you are and set the mood of your ceremony and reception.
