2016 Wedding Trends and Event Linen to Match!

2016s biggest wedding trends will allow you to flash your personal style and give your day that star quality. Anyone getting married this year has most likely started the hard task of wedding planning, so we’ve made life easier by narrowing down the choices and lining up our favourite fashionable ideas for you to consider!

BRING OUT THE BLING

 

A touch of ‘bling’ will give your wedding an eye-catching edge and is surprisingly easy to work into your overall aesthetic. Whether you’re aiming to create a whimsical wonderland or a chic city vibe, you’ll find a shade of shine to suit. For example think gilded menus, rose gold candlesticks, copper lanterns and silver sparkles on your cake. To give your wedding the gleam it deserves, try gold or silver satin chair sashes, and keep these in place with a diamonte buckle. Also, for a great alternative to a white tablecloth you may wish to use our sequin table runners.

DIVINE PASTELS

 

Everything is pretty in pastel! Adding shades of light pink, blue, yellow and green to your mood board will give your day a lovely, dreamy quality. Especially if you’re thinking of a spring or summer wedding! Imagine mint coloured bridesmaid dresses, beautiful bouquets of peonies and a dessert bar overflowing with cute coloured sweets. Our chair sashes come in a range of pastel shades, perfect for adding dainty hues to plain white wedding chair covers.

ORGANIC SEATING

 

Wedding trends in 2016 are moving away from traditional long table seating and embracing round tables or a combination of round and square tables instead. This will give your reception dinner a more intimate feel and encourage conversation between guests. Our round and square tablecloths are a faultless match for this particular fashion and will give you the flexibility to seat your guests in any style you wish.

STATEMENT CENTERPIECES

 

Uniformity is out and creativity is in when it comes to wedding centrepieces. Nowadays it’s acceptable to vary your centrepieces from table to table or even on each of the tables themselves. You’ll also want to think outside the box and include things like succulents, feathers, berries and even a bit of bling! Making your own centrepieces is also a great way to save on costs, and add that personal touch. Show off your sensational centrepieces by choosing white wedding tablecloths and cloth napkins, which will serve as a neutral pallet. You could also take a ‘no fuss’ approach to this fad by shimmying up your tables with our sequin chevron table runners.

SATELLITE BARS AND FOOD STATIONS

 

The best way to guarantee your wedding guests’ enjoyment is to keep them fed and watered. Scattering bars and food tables around your venue means guests are never far from a snack or a drink. Current drink trends include signature cocktails, crisp chardonnays and fun, fruity rosés. You may also wish to serve an assortment of local tapas, chosen specifically from the region you’re getting married in. Wedding tableclothsand dry bar covers come in all shapes and sizes so you will have no trouble finding one that suits.

SLEEK AND CHIC

 

If you are getting married in the city or have a penchant for understated glamor then you’ll love the latest trends around minimalist, elegant soirees. An “all white’ pallet is currently in vogue, or you embrace everything monochrome to create the ultimate modern wedding colour scheme. Either way, it’s easy to find wedding linen that will suit a more streamlined affair. You’ll love our black and white lycra chair covers or flocking table runnersLycra wedding chair bands are also a simple way to create this premium look. Think silver on white, black on white or even white on white!

KEEP IT PERSONAL

 

In 2016 it’s all about adding that personal touch. This means writing your own vows, choosing music that’s meaningful to you and your partner, monogramming signage and menus with your initials or maybe even including a four legged friend in the ceremony! Wedding linen can also be used to create a more meaningful day. Pick out cloth napkins or chair sashes (or both) in your shared favourite colour or use our hessian table runner to give your wedding that ‘home grown’ look and feel.
