2015 weddings have showcased bold use of colour, from farm to fork catering and finished off with naked or Victoriana style wedding cakes. We've also seen Downtown Abbey influenced dresses, elaborate veils and throughout venue finishing.
But what is coming up for all you lovely brides planning your 2016 wedding?
Barely there (pastels) are looking popular on the wedding dress front, with shades of pink and rose seen across all the runway shows. Check out Jenny Packham's 2016 catwalk (I bet you will feel all floaty after watching!) and Houghton's exotic designs. V neck and bateau line designs seem to be de rigueur as well.
Given that feathers are also featuring heavily in 2016 wedding dress designs too, I forsee that these will feature within wedding bouquets too. I love this, its slightly boho and really natural.
Going back to the pastels, check out this stunning 2016 bouquet trends Pinterest board from Vanessa Hinks (pastel freesias, roses and peonies aplenty).
In terms of wedding cakes, couples on a budget are saving on the third course and using pudding cakes as an alternative. Think dessert in tiers like banoffee cake, cheesecake, or for a real showstopper a croquembouche or macaron towers.
For those who like it bold, glamorous cakes with shimmer, sequin or a metallic finish are all the rage. Here's a beautiful selection courtesy of brides.com.
Hope you enjoyed my trends insight for 2016. Please get in contact here, if you would like a quote on any of these cake styles.
