Wedding Trend Watch: Mexico

Since it's bitterly cold and rainy in London town this week, we're looking to sunnier climates for some wedding inspo to warm us up. Hola Mexico! 

Last year we saw Day of the Dead themes popping up everywhere - decorative skulls and colourful floral garlands were everywhere from high street fashion to homeware.

It's fiesta inspiration that brings out bold typography and bright colours. Homemade and beautifully 'thrown together'. It's relaxed, laid back playful and fun. And just perfect for boho-inspired summer weddings - in a field or in a warehouse.

Cacti and succulents are still HUGE right now and it works perfectly as a motif and decorative greenery to bring Mexico to life in your wedding design. Plus...churros.

And you can eat those churros in a beautiful boho lace or macrame figure-hugging gown - perfect for this stylish, sexy and fun design.

Wedding Trends: Hygge

No, we don't really know how to correctly either, but we still think that 'hygge' may be the newest trend to hit the UK wedding scene.

The UK's newest obsession is a Danish word that doesn't even have an English translation - but is the Scandinavian concept of making the most out of winter. Hygge means lighting candles, eating good food with friends, drinking wine and generally feeling happy and cosy. Doesn't that sound like most people want for their wedding days to you?

Hygge is the perfect inspiration for fresh, contemporary winter wedding designs. It's not just about rustic barns and fairy lights, it's about Danish minimalism and a focus on what's important - food, community and good lighting!

It takes style inspiration also from the Kinfolk-trend - slow living simplicity, unfussy celebrations. Foraged finds to decorate your tables and soft candlelight to warm your guests. It's heavy with greenery and foliage, branches and natural elements, no colour. It's DIY but it's less origami paper cranes and more artisan woodwork! (No pressure, Etsy will have something)

Hygge at its core is about cosiness, which could mean forgoing a skimpy bridal shawl in favour of some bridal knitwear.

It's family style dining with comfort food over haute cuisine. Masses and masses of good food, good drink and good conversation.

A hygge wedding would be a stripped back vision of a wedding celebration - taking out all the stress and just putting together an unfussy, cosy event where you and your loved ones can enjoy the start of a new chapter. With pastries.

Wedding Trends: Florals

Floral Designs with the Wow-Factor

At the end of last year, when we looked ahead to 2016 and put together our wedding trend predictions, something that kept cropping up time and again was majorly wow-factor floral installations.

We said florists were going to be getting more creative and push the boundaries of wedding flowers to craft some truly impressive statement pieces.

Today we're checking out some epic design ideas that could work for your wedding or event - a one-off feature that will leave your guests feeling the 'wow factor'. Check out some of our other hot picks on our Pinterest board.

Floral chandeliers have been a mainstay of wedding design for the past few years now, but these suspended designs are coming a little closer to earth to create a fantastic focal point at your event. This floral crate arrangement could double as an incredible evening dessert buffet - can you imagine? Grab a cupcake out of this beautifully decorated hanging crate!

Forgo the centrepieces and make it rain flowers with these suspended rings and hanging flowers with added uplighting. Upgrade some old lampshade frames with an added moss-effect - perfect for a rustic barn wedding or garden themed baby-shower.

Up your cocktail hour game by turning your flowers into poseur tables - encase them in boxes and get people talking around these floral creations. Or this honeycomb floral shelf display could work for displaying your custom cocktails during the evening!
