One of the biggest wedding trends for 2016 is greenery and minimal blooms. Both rustic and glam weddings will be incorporating fresh green foliage, from aisle decorations to table garlands. The Silver Dollar Eucalyptus is an aromatic filler with a long vase life and is a perfect filler for any wedding bouquet, table centrepiece or flower arrangement.

Something Blush, Something Blue: A Pantone-Inspired Wedding Palette

120715-wedding-pantone-lead

Something old, something new, something blush, something blue! It certainly has a ring to it. We get all the feels from Rose Quartz and Serenity—Pantone’s Colours of the Year, an ethereal pale pink and grey blue dual-hue combination. The soft, watercolour pastels lend themselves perfectly to wedding inspiration. From super-soft paper details to delicate florals, uber-feminine fashion and sugary, angelic desserts, our hearts have been set aflutter by all the imagery.

Are you planning on having a 2013 wedding? PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald a lively, radiant, lush green, is the Colour of the Year. Featured here are Ellie Saab gowns at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2012 showcasing the strength of the colour. If you’d like to make a statement, this colour scheme is definitely something to be considered.

Yellow and Grey Wedding Theme

Warm yellow next to cool grey just pops! This colour combination is great, especially for a spring or summer wedding. Dress your bridesmaids and groomsmen in these colours. The brides white dress is also stunning with these colours, further bringing out the romance and charm in the wedding dress.

White Wedding Cakes

Clockwise from top: BUTTERCREAM: This cake topping is beloved for its rich and, yes, buttery flavour. Keep it in an air-conditioned or refrigerated spot to prevent softening. If it’s below 80 degrees, the frosting will hold up outside for about an hour. MERINGUE: This wispy mix of egg whites and sugar, also known as “seven-minute frosting”, can be smoothed on for a clean, glossy look or applied in peaks. For added flavour (and to help it adhere), spread on a thin layer of buttercream first. FONDANT: When draped over a lightly frosted cake, fondant offers a flawless finish. To decorate it with your monogram, just use a rubber stamp. Fondant holds up well in the heat, but don’t refrigerate it – water spots can form. POWDERED SUGAR: What could be prettier for a winter wedding than a flurry of slices dusted with snowy sugar? With its homespun appeal, this topping would also complement a simple, backyard affair.

White Wedding Bouquet

A cluster of dahlias, white delphiniums, eucharis lilies, white orchids, and snowberry branches, tied with satin and lace, has an ethereal look. Bouquet, Saipua. 50mm embroidery lace (#62030); 80mm double-faced satin ribbon (#1100), Mokuba New York. Perfect for a white wedding.

White Wedding Invitations

White or ivory may be the traditional stationery choice, but that doesn’t mean your set has to look the part.

Stationery suite, Alee & Press, aleeandpress.com. Envelopes: A7; 4 Bar; #1 Baby, Paper Source, paper-source.com.

Black And White Themed Wedding

Black and white will always be a classic and sophisticated colour palette for weddings. Add in a touch of soft grey and you have a palette worth swooning over! It’s elegant, it’s striking and most importantly, it’s an easy palette to bring to life. A sort of beauty that truly is unmatched. To add some extended fun, get your guests to dress according to the colour theme.
