With the new year in full swing, we’re already starting to see some of the newest trends emerging, so here’s what we recommend when you’re planing your wedding..

Something Blue

Pastel blue is making a massive comeback this year, from pale bridesmaid dresses to hydrangeas in your bouquets. Now, your something blue can be your theme too! It was already our favourite colour here at Sweetheart, but now we love it even more!

Funky Patterns

We can expect to see a lot more patterns in this years wedding scene! In particular, stripes and chevron in the form of bright colours or metallics are going to be a big hit.

Mix it up

Centre pieces are one of the most important parts of your wedding reception. However, 2016 brings in the latest “mix & match” style. All your centre pieces don’t need to be all the same and perfectly matched. Each one can be a unique and exciting stand-alone creation..which is music to our ears here at Sweetheart Vintage Weddings! See our photos for some fabulous centre piece ideas..
