Wedding Styling Ideas Inspired by Spring/Summer Fashion 2016

We love a good trend report! We are feeling inspired by the Resort 2016 Report which is full to the brim with amazing fashion trends for the coming seasons. Taking from these beautiful clothing concepts below are a few wedding styling ideas to channel the coming years fashion trends.

 

Blush is the new white

For many years white has been the staple for both wedding dresses and wedding décor. A clean white palette of flowers with a touch of green looks fresh and crisp year round, but there is a new hot colour in town – blush. We are adoring some of the blush clothing and bridal gowns on the runway, and this colour beautifully translates to your tablescape and décor for your wedding day.

Blush is complimentary to gold and champagne tones so mix this soft pastel shade with opulent gold candlesticks, or dripping crystal for a grand effect. Or if you are after something a bit simpler and refined pair a beautiful blush and white floral arrangement with a pale pink napkin instead for a more subtle effect.

Colour Blocking

Bold bright and magnificent – colour blocking is back! This fashion trend has come and gone over the years but we are happy to see it back in some original pieces.

For a wedding a rainbow palette may seem a bit overwhelming but when grouped and blocked down a table colour blocking can look chic and vibrant. If you are open to the idea of a lot of colours colour block across the whole ROYGBIV spectrum, or if you are after something a bit more demure you can colourblock within one or two tones instead for a more demure look. Remember that colour blocking doesn’t have to be incredibly bright and in your face – if you choose to colour block with a single colour (lets say pink) there are a lot of varieties (peach, pale pink, fuschia, magenta etc) you can layer to still get a colour block look.

Nautical

A classically elegant look, nautical will always have a place in both fashion and styling. We love the mixture of traditional stripes with unique detailing popping up in this years look book.

To translate this look into your wedding styling use a classic blue or black and white stripe to take a lounge pod or centrepiece from simplistic to chic. Match with natural timber tones and coppers for a modern twist, or keep it simplistic and chic with a clean white base and just a touch of nautical inspiration. This look is perfect for beach and seaside weddings as it ties in nicely with the scenery.
