“Shimmery neutral colors and beautiful natural settings and design elements will be popping up for weddings in 2016,” says Lord. “Here’s what wedding attendees, engaged couples and planners can look for in the year ahead:”
Expect plenty of shimmer and shine from weddings next year. Brides are finding new and exciting ways to incorporate metallic colors into their weddings, from a sparkling art decor to the beautiful bridesmaid dresses.
Blue has a long association with weddings, symbolizing purity and fidelity. Paired with silver, the normally serene blue takes on an inviting, festive air that befits a celebration — especially one in the winter. And the palette can be tailored to a snazzy New Year’s Eve reception in the city or one in the snow-covered countryside. Whatever the mood, consider soft and medium blues and crisp, platinum-toned silvers.
Dark blues and gold is an ideal wedding palette because it’s suitable for almost any season and theme – for a New Year wedding, for a beach wedding, for rustic wedding and so on. These two colors are beautifully contrasting and very elegant, and you can easily create an amazing table setting using them – just take gold tableware and blue tablecloths and napkins. Why not dress your groom into dark blue? That’s the hottest trend! Maybe your bridesmaids will also agree to wear this awesome color, and you as a bride can rock a sparkling gold wedding gown!
