Top Wedding Trends For 2016

Now you've arranged marquee hire in the Cotswolds, you can start to turn your thoughts to the rest of your wedding prep. Here are some of the key trends that are expected to be big news for weddings this year.


Dancing down the aisle

This year, we expect for weddings to become even more joyful than ever before. While it's customary to walk down the aisle, we're likely to see more and more people choosing to dance their way to the altar. How much fun would that be? Just pick your song wisely.

Asking guests to help with the playlist

Weddings will become even more collaborative, with guests being asked to help the bride and groom come up with their playlist. Either set up a wedding website where people can make song requests or include space on the RSVP so people can list their favourite songs. That'll ensure that everyone dances the night away!

Video booths

Photobooths are an amazing addition to any special day but 2016 will see this taken to the next level with video booths instead, where people can come and leave little video messages for the happy couple to watch when they're back from honeymoon.

Artificial flowers

This one is sure to prove divisive as people will always want fresh flowers at their weddings, but a key trend for this year is the use of artificial ones to create a longer-lasting effect.

Tortes and tarts

Instead of the traditional three-tier cake, we'll be seeing a lot more smaller tortes and tarts, so consider this if you're wedding planning this year.
