Sparkles! Sparkles! Sparkles!

Sparkles seem to make their way into any wedding day, and we are seeing sparkles incorporated into weddings more than ever. From the invitations to the details on a dress, and the decorations at the reception. Sparkles are taking over and we are loving it!

Mismatched

As mismatched wedding attire has been a trend in the past year we are going to see more couples pick up on this in 2016. It is such a fun way to incorporate your wedding parties true colors as they pick out something they feel comfortable in as well.

Creative Food and Drinks

Couples are sharing their personality through food and drinks just like we want them to! It's not only a conversation starter, but it's also a fun way to treat your guests to having something they won't get anywhere else. Pro tip has it that pre made drinks are easy on the budget as well!

Fresh Picked

Weddings wouldn't be the same without floral. What is in season has been getting attention more than ever. What is fresh picked to what is local couples are appreciating what is available to them at the time and season of their wedding. Flowers have been a major tradition in weddings, and as new traditions rise this is one we absolutely love!

Through the Lens

The moment guests arrive they are pulling out their phones and begin hash tagging away as they post to Facebook and Instagram. The hashtag trend is still on the rise as social media becomes a huge part of any wedding day with the couples personalized hashtag. Polaroids and film captured moments are a huge hit right now as guests are loving the immediate gratification of a photo.

Set the Mood

Lighting is the last thing any couple thinks about when they are planning a wedding, but lighting is important to the environment you have chosen. Chandeliers are setting an elegant mood while Edison light bulbs are setting a casual mood. Depending on your location these 2016 lighting trends are sure to set the mood for your guests.

Still Trending

We won't be seeing the barn weddings leave the industry anytime soon. Couples are still enjoying it just as much as the first one they laid eyes on which is why they are making it the theme for their wedding day. It's perfect for those on a budget who don't need a huge event space, and to instead rent a barn and throw a casual wedding. It's great for the outdoors type and to seclude yourself from the city with your guests.
