8 Wedding Trends of 2016

Out with the old and in with the new! Now that we are one month in to 2016, let's take a moment to predict the hottest wedding trends of the year. We have a feeling that some of these trends are here to stay.

1. Two Piece Wedding Dresses

Wedding dress separates are all the rage. Pair a basic skirt with a lace top or a high-low skirt with a basic ruffle top. Mixing and matching is fun!

2. Colorful Floral Bouquets

Wedding flowers can be expensive, but many brides got creative with this trend. Instead of going to a florist, brides picked their own bouquet and centerpieces by mixing different flowers that created an earthy and budget-friend look.

3. French Macaron Tower

Although wedding cakes are usually the tradition, Brides took it to a new level with a Macaron cake. These sweet, little bites are piled high to create a work of art. Some of them were layered with flowers to create a true wedding cake feel.

4. A New Way For Floral

Most of the times flowers are used for bouquets and centerpieces, but 2016 is the year to change it up. Gold floral place card holders still provide a natural feel, but add that hint of shine.

5. Make That Two New Ways For Floral

DIY has been trending for years. Take that to a new level with DIY floral initials. These are easy wedding decorations that are personalized and fun that can match any other wedding decor.

6. Useful Wedding Favors

How many times have you gotten chocolates as a wedding favor, and within minutes, you eat it and throw out the wrapper. For 2016, people are letting their creative juices flow. Think outside the box with your wedding favors for something special like lip balm that people will keep forever.

7. Shimmer Bridesmaid Dresses

It's time to sparkle and shine. Shimmer and beaded bridesmaid dresses will be big for 2016 as well. We saw these pop up a little in 2015, but now they are bigger than ever. We just love them!

8. Not Your Average Invitation 

Basic white wedding invitations are from the days of the past. Pump them up with bright colors, floral patterns and laser cut accents. Include all of those wedding details while making a statement.
