The Lavender Pearl Team may still be recovering from this year’s wedding festivities but as a new year approaches us, it’s time to rev up our gears in preparation for the year that will give saying “I do” a whole new meaning. From floral arrangements that pop to gilded affairs, the trends for 2016 are set to stun. The question here is, are any of these going to make their debut on your big day?
Blooming with Love
As we ring in the new year, let your love blossom by incorporating textured floral into your decor. Now, it is no surprise that floral arrangements and bouquets are a norm for weddings. However, 2016 is calling for flowers that pop with full flower walls and plush greenery for your stage. Whether you choose real or artificial flowers, this 3-Dimensional romantic wonder will make for the perfect photo setting for your nuptials. Hanging flower arrangements or other decor elements are also rising in hype for the coming year. Showcase your edge by opting for a suspended table top feature that is sure to leave your guests in awe.
All that Shimmers will be Gold
Shimmering glamor made its debut in 2015 but is rising in the ranks to be the leading hit for 2016. Whether you choose to add sequined gowns to your bridesmaids’ collection or a metallic table setting, the Lavender Pearl Team guarantees that these glitzy elements will transform your event into a masterpiece. While silver has been the primary go-to color for accents, gold has taken over as a wondrous complimentary addition to the color palette. It pairs perfectly with virtually any element – be it earthy tones for a rustic affair or deep hues for depth. Let’s face it, is there really such a thing as too much glam? Impossible.
Well, naked cakes that is! Forgo the overly iced mess and expensive rubber-like fondant – naked cakes are winning for 2016! These multi-tiered delicate cakes scream elegance and quite frankly looks possibly too delectable to eat. However, do not let that shy you away. Each moist and flavorful layer stunningly exposed with intricate flowers adorning the sides is something we cannot get enough of! Lavender Pearl has had the pleasure of working with Inspired Pastries who made the dreamy treat pictured below. The combination of roses and baby’s breath has stolen our hearts for sure!
Color is the New Black
Here’s a note for all the grooms out there looking to step out of their comfort zone and spice things up- Ditch the traditional black tux and opt for that slim fitting navy number that you’ve been eyeing for a while now. Unlike bridal attire, grooms are a tad limited when it comes to color choices for their suites. However, gray, navy and shades of blue have risen in the ranks to be some of the top contenders for men on their wedding day. Include some suspenders or vest and a killer bow-tie for a smart look that will surely steal your bride’s heart – all over again.
One for the Ride-Edible Favors
Do your guests a favor and gift them a favor that they will truly enjoy! Customize mini bottles of your favorite drink or share your favorite blend of tea – the possibilities are endless! There’s nothing more exciting than a snack for the ride home after dancing the night away or a sweet breakfast treat for the next day. These consumable gifts will surely put a smile on your guest’s face. Many of these are DIY that you can put together ahead of time or leave as a reception activity. Either way – this element will definitely be a hit! The Lavender Pearl Team is all sorts of excited for favor tables and decor. We’d be glad to help create this trinkets for you!
