When couples become engaged this holiday season, brides-to-be will be searching the internet for the latest wedding trends for 2016 so it’s the perfect subject to discuss on your social media sites and blog. Pick the trends that will appeal to the brides in your niche, post examples and share how you might incorporate the trend into the weddings that you plan. This will help you establish yourself as the expert brides need.
Here are 5 wedding trends you can look for in 2016 that you can share with your brides:
1) Long tables or a mix of long and square tables
The trend is definitely away from round tables with a preference for long tables with low floral tablerunners.
2) Ghost chairs
Clear, Lucite ghost chairs now come in a variety of styles from modern to Victorian, with arms and without. You can use them in many reception styles from rustic, with weathered wooden tables, to elegant, with mirrored tabletops.
3) Metallic golds
Glitzy, sequined linens, flatware, chargers, shiny candelabras and lanterns in gold, especially rose gold, will be big in the coming year.
4) A mix of centerpiece styles
At one time it was expected that the same arrangement would grace every table. In the New Year, more and more floral designers will be using at least two different centerpiece styles at a reception in order to add interest to the room.
5) Naked wedding cakes
I featured these cakes a couple of years ago on my Facebook page and fans didn’t care for them! Now, many brides are choosing these unfrosted cakes, simply adorned with berries or flowers, over ornately designed, fondant-covered ones.
