Wedding Trends – Some ‘Fresh’ Ideas

Wedding Colour Combinations – White, Mint & Robin Egg Blue

White, light and bright – if you are looking for a colour combination for your wedding that will add a lovely fresh look then you have stumbled into the right place! Whether you are having a spring or summer wedding this is a stunning combination that can be brought into your wedding day in so many ways.

Wedding Stubby Holders

Decorate your wedding venue with crisp white table cloths and use contrasting mint blue table runners to add a splash of colour. Your wedding decorations could include blue glass candle holders, glass scatter beans or clear vases with funky blue or mint coloured paper drinking straws – is a great place to find soe neat wedding ideas!

Lolly buffets are becoming increasingly popular as an added extra for those ‘big kids’ and if you are focusing on a DIY wedding, create your own wedding tags and labels in your theme colours and even make sure that the candy you use is colour coordinated too! I have seen some great ideas with personalised paper candy bags and napkins too, so many ways that you can match your wedding colour theme.

Bridesmaids dresses will look gorgeous in several shades of mint and blue, even the style of dress can be different to add some real variety to your wedding look. Wooden wedding signs can be created for a really personal touch and a way to help you guide your guests to their seats!

Don’t forget that you can double up your wedding stubby holders as a thank you gift for each guest and print their individual names to use as place markers too! Design your coolers to match your wedding theme and colour combo. Here are a couple of ideas, remember we can change the colours and text to suit your requirements …

There are so many elements to consider when putting together your bridal wedding plan, from the very start each bride-to-be is likely to have some set ideas in mind for their wedding theme, from their save the dates & wedding invitations through to the style of wedding dress and even the cake – but there are so many ideas floating around, how does a bride choose.

Well, firstly we would suggest that each element should reflect the bride and groom’s personalities, maybe you are an adventurous couple, the ourdoorsy type – you could consider natural shades in colour and organic features. Combine this with an edge of elegance and you have yourself a very relaxed atmosphere that would be perfect for any wedding.

Stay Relaxed…

One recent wedding trend is seeing relaxed lounge furniture, low couches and arm chairs with organic coffee tables made from recycled materials, old barrels and tree stumps.

Camping, or otherwise known in the wedding world as ‘glamping’ is becoming more popular than ever and in Australia, let’s face it, the big outdoors is certainly vast and the possibilities almost endless! From tepee style large wedding marquees to house your entire wedding reception to smaller individual tents tailored your glamping to be exactly what you wish for.

Many couples are choosing to have extra, smaller tents for secluded areas, like a chill out tent or a games tent for the kids, a great way to relax or contain those little ones! Staying overnight can be great fun too, songs around the camp fire and then the fun of the morning after and an extended party!! What a great wedding experience!

Keep Everybody Smiling…

In keeping with a good-natured feel to your wedding day there are some other fun elements that you can add into the mix. Photo booths are becoming increasingly popular and the props you choose can also be translated into design ideas that you can use throughout your wedding stationery, table decorations and to make the basis for your wedding theme.

Props that represent the bride and groom’s personalities are great plus you can add some real colour and interesting poses to your wedding photographs! Make sure you have tonnes of moustaches, luscious lips and top hats to finish off your theatrics!

Setting the Mood…
