Wedding Trends: Decor

Trendwatch: Cactus

Ok, we're calling it. Cactus is the new fern.

From wedding design to homeware to fashion prints, and even your greetings cards - cactus is the new motif in town. It's the new pineapple, the new palm leaf, the new watercolour, and we love it.

You're probably thinking to yourself, "This is incredible, I love it, I'm so into cactus right now, thank you Revelry for alerting me to this trend to watch...but that's all very well for US brides who can just hop over to the nearest desert and make cactus work, but what about little old us in the UK?"

Well, never fear, because there certainly are lots of great venues and spaces that you can make a cactus design work for.

Conservatories like London's Syon Park are the perfect backdrop for your prickly design - or find yourself some gorgeous dunes somewhere on the coast like Camber Sands where beach sand can become desert sand with a little styling.

And the key with any trendy motif or theme is not to go overboard. A little touch here and there to tie everything together is perfect - no need to go ordering yourself 100 cactus chairs, cactus tablecloths and a cactus print wedding dress. Less is more and be smart with your wedding theming!
