Why You Should Ignore The Coolest Wedding Trends

April 01, 2016

If you're planning your wedding, you've probably already ripped out many inspirational pictures from bridal magazines.

You've probably known for ages exactly what special features you want to include in your wedding because you based it on something you saw last week/last month/last year.

Here's why you should stick to what you love, even if cutting-edge wedding planners say certain elements are supposedly "so over" or something equally rude - and simply have what you want and ignore the coolest or latest wedding trends.

  • Choose what colour really suits YOU. In 2015, according to the colour gurus at Pantone was Marsala, a reddish-brown. This colour is, sadly, not universally flattering to your complexion, however 2013 was the brilliant green Emerald which is still very popular, This year is the striking Ultraviolet purple. Choose the colour that suits you - not what the paint gurus say!
  • Ignore celebrity weddings for inspiration. Wearing a white jumpsuit on a bicycle as your wedding dress (Solange Knowles), or a tiny bikini (Pamela Anderson), arriving in a pink Cinderella coach (Katie Price), sitting on golden thrones (the Beckhams), or having an immense upside-down chandelier cake (Kaley Cuoco) are clearly meant to get them press coverage.
  • Don't follow a certain wedding look because everyone else is doing it. Did you know having a wedding with truly original ideas is less likely to look dated?
  • Look inside your own house to wedding clues if you're being seduced by PInterest wedding boards. If you don't have anything that's lime-washed, distressed, faux-aged, handmade or hessian, the rustic look isn't really"you". Similarly, if you don't really have much that's gold, copper, brass or silver, the metallic wedding look won't "mesh" with your and your partner's style
  • The top 10 "trends" publicised by the wedding magazines are based on products and services pushed by their advertisers
  • Remember that whatever you like now - whether it's trendy or not - will be out of fashion in two years' time. Should you care? No, because everyone's wedding will look dated at some point in the future. You chuckle at the perms in '90s wedding, right?
  • But you might want to take advantage of current wedding trends including: weekday weddings, daytime weddings, marrying outside of summer, cupcakes instead of a big wedding cake, kids' activity packs to keep them entertained, and lolly/cheese/antipasto buffet bars.
