Tying The Knot In Style
Every year, the marriage celebrations turn up a notch and introduce various new trends. Certain years you can expect over the top extravaganza, whilst in other years, you can expect quieter affairs. Well, this year, in 2017, the expected trends are in favour of both extravaganza and simplicity. That does not make sense? Well, it sure does, and if you read on below, you will find out why!
Use of technology – the advantage modern weddings have over those of hundred years ago is certainly the development of technology. If you have not seen many ceremonies which make good use of this – save for the (almost excessive) use of cameras for both photographs and videos – you can surely see it put to good use this year. One of the newest trends is in fact to make use of technology to recreate natural scenery or some other fantastical environment within the reception hall itself! This is done through the use of multiple screens which are fitted onto both the ceilings and walls (and sometimes, the floor as well), which allows recreating almost any kind of environment digitally. Now you do not have to go to the beach to have a beach-themed ceremony anymore!
- Extensive use of greenery – the simplicity factor comes in through the new trend which calls for the inclusion of more plants in your venue. You can expect Blue Mountains wedding services such as the florists making big bucks out of this trend – unless, of course, you decide to have your ceremony outdoors. The trend has seen reception halls and indoor locations being almost invaded by giant potted plants, lianas and every single type of floral decoration you could imagine.
- Metallic dresses – when it comes to the clothing department, brides and bridesmaids can expect to wear a new kind of dress type, the metallic dresses. These are basically dresses and clothing which have beadings and other accessories that resemble and give off a metallic lustre. They often come in pale colours and are quite airy – nothing cumbersome or heavy – which means they pair up very well with the floral themes of most ceremonies.
- Pick your gifts – gift bars are also another new addition the ceremonies of 2017. The newer generations often prefer freedom and independence in selection, and this has paved the way for what are known as ‘gift bars’. These are basically stands of various goodies from which guests may pack their gift bags – as opposed to the traditional gift bag that everyone got. This means the guests can pick and include only the items they like (you will be sure to please them!).
