Wedding Reception Trends For 2016

Wedding Reception Trends For 2016

If you’re planning a 2016 wedding, you may have your venue booked and all of the most important items ticked off of your list. However, if you are still looking for the perfect way to host your wedding reception, we have some fabulous ideas that are on-trend, and which will make your day truly memorable for you and your guests. 

Last week we spoke about mixing and matching products. Today - from aerial photography to the latest wedding favour ideas, we’re here to give you some great inspiration, and of course, to give you some wonderful wedding furniture ideas too!

Capture Your Special Day From The Air

Enjoying your day at ground level is one thing, but what if you could capture everything as it happens from the sky above? Aerial photography has become more and more popular over the years, and is an ingenious way to take photos, especially during the summer months. Drones are excellent at taking sweeping, majestic photos of your entire event, whether in photo or video format, and can get in low for some great candid close-ups and gain height for fantastic panorama and group shots. Many photographers are now combining their camera skills with expert drone piloting, and so you should be able to find a company offering these services in your area.

Wedding Favour Ideas That Will Truly Wow Your Guests

Okay, hands up who loves weddings and who gets especially excited about wedding favours? We’ve got both our hands up here! Thankfully, wedding favours have moved on since the days of sugared almonds in a net bag, although you can still get these if you are feeling traditional or a little retro.

Every year brings new wedding favour trends, and 2016 is no exception. This year, expect to see super creative ideas hitting wedding tables across the country. How about some chic little jars of local honey, a perfume bar with a small bottle of perfume or cologne for every guest, mini bottles of champagne complete with striped straws, individual macaroons in boxes tied with ribbon, homemade limoncello, or if you are planning a beach wedding, how about flip flops for all of your guests? These are just some of the wonderful ideas that have caught our eye.

Create A Peaceful, Tranquil Setting

This year, the wow factor is out and the ahh factor is in. It’s all about creating peaceful, tranquil settings using neutral fabrics, calming music and romantic decor. Think zen glam, think fairy lights and think soft-focus photography. There are many ways you can create a welcoming and warm atmosphere no matter what your venue, but the venues that are easiest to work with are those already situated in a calm and peaceful setting. Remember that in addition to our fabulous wedding furniture, we can also supply wonderful linens in a range of neutral and fresh fabrics.

Let The Eat Cake

Wedding cake trends this year are all about your own personal love story. Trends include your lovey dovey Facebook statuses and photos printed directly onto the white icing of your cake. You might also wish to have a favourite poem printed, or the lyrics to a special song.

Diverse Menu Ideas

Food, glorious food! Your wedding day is the day you can go all out, and really give your guests a culinary treat. It’s all about diverse food ideas this year, from antipasto plates for all to share to Korean BBQs cooked at your guests’ tables. Gone are the days of serving boring plates of chicken or fish. If you love to be a little different when it comes to catering for your guests, 2016 is most definitely your year!
