Wedding planner Lindsey Hunter share's the hot trending wedding tips for 2015.
Many couples now want to make a statement from their food and want something different to wow their guests. From vintage burger vans, luxury fish and chips and tacos, to gourmet ice cream and drinks bars. There are plenty of food trucks to choose from to suit the couple’s individual tastes and still please their guests.
Natural and out-doors is very popular at the moment. With a vast range of details available, including real tree slices, green moss, lichen twigs and rustic flowers. Also popular are branches decorated with lights, which look great mixed together for a contemporary twist with glass apothecary jars and lots of candles.
If the woodlands aren't your scene, here are other venues you haven't considered.
CHIAVARI CHAIR HOODS
A stunning alternative to the chair cover; chiavari chair hoods come in lots of different designs, including ruffled and tulle looks which add softness and glamour to a room. They are available in colours to suit the wedding theme or venue. Lime washed chiavaris are a really popular chair, which look great in many settings.
These trends make great additions once you've got the basics in place, see Lindsey's three essential wedding planning tips if you're not sure where to start.
PLUM AND WINE FLORAL TONES
As much as pastels are making an appearance again this year, darker colours such as plums and wines are very popular. They look stunning mixed with white flowers as it really makes them stand out. Add beautiful roses, dahlias, carnations and trailing amaranthus to bridal bouquets for this lush colour palette.
These look exquisite set on a table at a wedding reception. They are truly a work of art. Use old style champagne glasses to create a stunning vintage style champagne fountain. To make the fountain look even more dramatic, set the glasses on a large round mirror for great light reflection and an extra sense of height.
DRONE WEDDING PHOTOS
The brand-new way to take photos…from the air! This is a fabulous way to capture aerial shots during the day of the venue, couple and guests. Make a list of the shots you want to capture to ensure you get the perfect photos. Drones are great for taking intimate and relaxed photos of the couple as the photographer doesn’t need to be too close, helping to make the photos more natural.
