The wedding season is in full swing with whimsical, boho and natural themes emerging as hot trends, according to Suffolk wedding venue Bruisyard Hall
The venue's wedding team has spotted a number of overarching themes this year including a move towards a more minimalist and natural look with light pastel shades, natural light and stripped-back settings proving increasingly popular. Light blush tones and violet colour schemes, combined with attention-grabbing crystal glassware are big and copper, the metal of the moment, looks set to rival last year's hot colour crush, rose gold.
The team also reveals a number of other growing trends:
The move towards simpler, often more budget-friendly wedding themes has filtered through to the catering, with a shift away from the traditional multi-course wedding breakfast in favour of more quirky and relaxed options such as large sharing platters of different food, beautifully arranged and decorated. Dessert tables are also in, with macarons and doughnuts remaining popular and mini wedding trifles also stealing their share of the limelight.
Flower arrangements are also tending to be simpler and more natural often featuring small budded and often foliage-based displays. Following the popular boho woodland wedding trend, many couples are opting for miniature woodland displays for a free-spirited, natural feel, including long, low-level tablescapes with bell jars, delicate flowers in soft dusky shades and leafy garlands. Foliage and floral hoops hanging above the tables and loose, natural looking bouquets with plenty of greenery to complement the venue decor are also among this season's favourites.
