Spring Summer 2016 Wedding Trend…Wild Urbanism

We have put together an inspiring colour palette for all you brides to be in 2016. Our Wild Urbanism trend translates beautifully into the perfect spring/summer wedding story.  It has a nomadic influence with a contemporary attitude; the combination of modern urban textures and naturally rustic finishes creates a romantic yet intriguing ambiance. This trend merges the inner city vibe with the great outdoors and combines both industrial and natural aesthetics; a mix of classic and bohemian styles to form a unique wedding theme.

From eco-friendly invitations to hand crafted concrete candle favours, the materials in this trend are about the raw and untreated. Rustic woods, concrete and grey toned linens dominate the decorative features. Centerpieces that include ivy, ferns and moss with unexpected pebbles, stones or bark work beautifully with organic floral arrangements. Edible wild flowers make pretty decorative ingredients for ice cubes and deserts.

The lush green foliage and wild floral greenery can be used to dress tables, cakes and even hair styles, florists will appreciate the fun combinations that can be created here. This trend is also perfect for colour play to create a more upbeat atmosphere. Accents of crisp mint, pop peach, and soft pinks with playful shades of yellow and lilac work well together or as individual combinations. Consider using these colours as highlights for groomsmen’s tie/bow ties, bridesmaids, flower accents, linens or centerpiece decorations. We will see floral print wedding dresses become more popular throughout 2016 along with subtle tones of soft pink, blush grey and warm peach emerging as key colours for bridal-wear; connecting perfectly with this trend.
