London venue, The Brewery’s wedding planning extraordinaire on what's hot for this winter and beyond...
With the summer giving way to the colder winter months comes new engagements, new brides-to-be and new wedding trends. While some trends never cease - such as the amusing couples hashtag and artfully mismatched furniture - if you want to put an innovative spin on your special day, take a look at the latest trends for the autumn/winter season...
Rich colour schemes
With rose gold remaining a firm favourite all year round, adding a dark wine shade to your palette will turn this shimmering summer shade to a vibrant autumnal combination. In the colder months, a rich burgundy shade adds warmth to your décor, and suits any theme. Earthy shades such as forest green and grey create a richly styled vintage palette - add a pop of colour by adding silver accents for a nod to the sparkle and glamour of the Christmas season.
It's all about you
Your wedding will be the best day of your life and you're going to want to remember it forever, yet while it's lovely to be surrounded by friends and family, many couples report that they wished they'd had more time together during the day. We're seeing more and more couples carve some alone time into their schedules – whether it be a quiet moment between photos or half an hour to decompress before the reception, it's imperative to remember that you are the two most important people of the day.
Going 'Au Naturel'
Despite bold colour palettes becoming flavour of the season, a more natural look when it comes to hair and makeup is becoming increasingly popular; delicately luminous skin, soft washes of eyeshadow and nude lips are favoured by many brides who are opting to let statement dresses carry their look instead.
Say 'I Do' to sustainable
With the environmental movement remaining at the forefront of the media, sustainability-friendly weddings are becoming an increasingly popular choice for couples. Creating a plant based menu, reusing daytime bouquets for evening flowers, printing invites and menus on recycled paper and crafting centrepieces that double as favours are all good ways of putting together an eco-friendly wedding.
Documenting authentic moments
While the wedding photographer is on hand to capture all the biggest moments of your special day, why not view the big day through the eyes of your nearest and dearest? Place a disposable camera on each table to see what your guests capture – you'll end up with some truly beautiful shots of the people you hold closest, made all the more special by their authentic, candid nature.
It's all in the details
Weddings are, undeniably, a long day for all involved, and after an evening of tearing up the dancefloor, it's fair to say your guests have probably worked up an appetite. As the evening draws to a close, why not provide a snack pack for your guests for their journey home? To go the extra mile, add in some considered extras to help stave off the inevitable hangover the next day!
