We all know that wedding trends come and go, but there are a few that have been big in recent years that are falling out of favour with brides and grooms.
The Daily Mail’s Femail recently highlighted some of the trends that have had their day and are unlikely to appear in many weddings in the future.
At the top of the list is the champagne tower, which the news provider noted is impractical. They experienced a surge in popularity due to the rise of 1920s and Great Gatsby-themed weddings, but have fallen out of favour now.
Walls covered in fairy lights are also out when it comes to wedding decor trends. Elise Hughan, from Australian company Easy Weddings, explained that the way in which a venue is lit has changed.
“Expect to see fewer fairy lights on walls at weddings and more lighting features on tables instead,” she stated.
In terms of colour schemes, Ms Hughan is predicting that pastels will be used at fewer weddings, with “deeper and richer colours” taking their place. Burgundy and darker purple were her two picks for the wedding colour of the year, which is worth considering if you have yet to decide on the wedding chair sashes at your UK wedding.
Naked cakes are another trend that is becoming less popular, she noted, but that doesn’t mean you have to return to the idea of a traditional iced fruit cake either. We recently made a few suggestions as to what you can offer your guests instead, including simply opting for your favourite type of sponge cake, or laying on a dessert table with a few different choices.
