Wedding Trends 2015

Colour Clash

“To work a bright palette, you’ve got to go for it. Pick two or three shades plus brighter accents to make them pop.”

We love the use of our mini dome bell jars filled with macarons and fruit in this bright table scape. you and your wedding magazine 2015 wedding style guide wedding trends 2015 you and your wedding magazine 2015 wedding style guide wedding trends 2015

 

Summer Blues

“Blues will be huge in 2015 – Pantone’s spring hues include pastels, dusk blues and aquamarine.”

Our This way to the I Do’s sign looks fab as part of this look, as do our paper bags.

Baby It’s Cold Outside

If you’re having a winter wedding why not try out some of these ideas to create a warm and cosy atmosphere at your wedding.

On The Tables

Create a warm glow to your guest tables with the use of candles, lots of candles. Whether you choose tea light holders, candle sticks or hand decorated jam jars the candle light will add warmth to your tables. To keep a rustic winter style include natural elements in your décor, you could use pine cones for your place card holders, or place a sprig of fir on each guests place settings. For a more DIY style you could stamp a sprig of fir on to guests place settings or favour envelopes.

Around The Room

There’s nothing more cosy that a roaring fire in the winter, if your venue has a fireplace make sure you specify you want it lit for your wedding. You can also add to the cosy winter feel by using more candles as well as wooden tree stumps and tree slices around the venue. If your ceremony room is suitable you could line the aisle with these too.

Favours That Keep You Warm

Keep your guests feeling cosy with your choice of favours. You could get crafty and make individual mocha mixes presented in a test tube! Or offer guests pashminas or blankets to help themselves to if they are feeling cold – especially if you are having entertainment outside.

Warm Refreshments

Instead of a candy buffet or dessert table have you thought of a hot chocolate bar, I love this idea.

TREE SLABS WITH GROUPINGS OF VASES

Use tree slices in the centre of you tables and place a grouping of small on them filled with flowers of your choice. The vases could be clear glass or coloured, they could be bottles, jam jars (decorated with hessian, lace, twine or ribbon if you wish), bud vases, silver vases, terracotta pots or little trinkets. Add tea light holders to the grouping on the tree slab or place around the edge of the tree slab on the table.

WOOD SLABS WITH A SINGLE VASE OR CONTAINER

Instead of a grouping of vases on your wood slabs you could opt for one vase or container. This could be a clear glass vase, or large jam jar for a country rustic look. Or keeping with the same style perhaps you would rather something a little different, a lantern, watering can or milk churn filled with flowers. For more of a rustic glamour style a large silver vase on the tree slice of pressed glass /crystal vase filed with flowers.

WOOD SLABS WITH A POSY OF FLOWERS

Do you think the tree slab is enough and you don’t need as vase as well. Ask your florist to create a floral display on a posy of oasis which can sit on top of your wood slab, finish off with moss to keep to a rustic look.

WOOD SLABS ON THE TOP TABLE

If you want a display in the centre of your top table we suggest using two wood slabs and create florals as well as vases, tea light holders and trinkets to flow between the two wood slabs. Or use the same display as you have chosen on your round guest tables and space 3 – 5 or them out along the front of your top table.

CANDLES ON WOODEN SLABS

You could opt for no flowers on your  tree slices and go with candles only. Group pillar candles or candles in vases on your tree slabs to create a woodland centrepiece.

WOOD SLABS AS PLACE MATS

For an intimate wedding you we love the idea of using tree slices as charger plates / place mats for your guests. This really creates a rustic woodland feel to your table decor. You could even engrave each tree slice with a quote, song lyrics or your guests names for place settings.
