Plan the perfect day with the top wedding trends for 2016

Every New Year brings something different for the wedding industry, ensuring that each couple’s special day is filled with fresh and exciting new options. At our countryside wedding venue near Johannesburg, we’re exploring the top trends for 2016.

  1. Charitable giving: Rather than the usual gifts of food processors, linen and china, more and more couples are choosing to use their wedding day to highlight a cause close to their hearts. So whether it’s an animal shelter, an orphanage or another NGO, you can use your celebration to share even more love, joy and goodwill.
  2. Jewel tones: Colour is a huge part of any wedding, from the bridesmaids dresses and bouquets to how you dress your wedding venue – and 2016 is the year of deep, rich tones. Think emerald, sapphire and ruby – opulent colours which will inspire the most luxurious experience.
  3. Personal themes: What brought you and your partner together? Was it your love of books or film? Or was it your desire to travel the world together? Use it to create a beautiful and highly personalised theme for your wedding which tells the story of your relationship’s journey.
  4. Gathering spots: Think photo booths, ice cream bars, cigar stations and custom cocktails – having these interactive elements at your wedding makes for great talking points, entertainment and lasting memories.
  5. Unusual venues: Churches are no longer a wedding essential, so think outside the box and make your event truly unique. From museums and galleries to outdoor country weddings, you can take your ceremony and reception from city chic to rural bliss.
