Speaking about trends in my previous post, I have been reading some interesting articles about the top colour picks for weddings this year.  It’s all about gentle and soft!

It seems people are moving away from startling bridesmaids in black, burgundy and other dark or bright colours and are choosing very differently.  Various shades of blue, such as the divine aquamarine, or tropical ocean-coloured.  Green is cool and refreshing, yet still light in tone.  Toasted almond, giving a natural down-to-earth tone to the wedding party.  One more unusual colour that is becoming popular is Glacier Grey – almost silver.

Hot in wedding dresses are off-the-shoulder tops.  Romantic, soft – even bohemian.  Variations from draped sleeves on both sides to one-shoulder dresses.  This dress would have to be a favourite of mine:

2015 Wedding Dress

It is a vintage 70’s dress which goes to show you that everything comes back!!  I love the softness and delicacy of this dress.

The other trend which sits so well with soft beauty is the soft lighting favoured now.  Many couples are choosing fairy lights or soft romantic twinkling lights in trees for outside weddings and/or a brilliant spotlight to lighten up an important display, such as a person-sized Love sign or table with photos of loved ones.

Look at these soft fairy lights strung around the tables at the wedding reception: Lovely!

Above all, enjoy the journey of organising your Wedding Day – it is only one day and goes so fast.  Try to hold on to the excitement of planning as well!
