Wedding Trends We’re Lovin

Here’s some lovable wedding trends…from cute shoe ideas to wedding reception ideas!

Comfy Flats – Throw out the heels because it’s currently on trend for brides and bridesmaids to wear colourful and comfy flats. We’ve even started to spot a lot of brides wearing pretty glittery flats.



Colourful Drink– Lots of couples are getting creative with their beverages and using coloured drink straws, cocktail flags, wedding drink stirrers, and non-alcoholic colourful soda. We love this trend becuase it adds a splash of colour to wedding decor!


Photo Booths – The photo booth trend is definitely one of the cutest, bringing a little cheeky humour to your wedding. A bold and bright pattern as the photobooth backdrop will also make for a really fun statement.


Low Centerpieces – Low and lush centerpieces are gaining popularity fast. Not only do they tend to be more affordable, they can also make a big impact when teamed with pretty candles.


Cake Buffets – Can’t pick a wedding cake? Well with a wedding cake buffet, these really no need to. What I love most about this trend is that when it comes to cake flavors and designs, the sky’s the limit. You can have everything you want….carrot cakes, banana cake, triple chocolate cake, pink champagne cake and the list can go on and on until your heart and tummy is content. Yum.


Choreographed Dances – More and more couples are putting together a choreographed fun first dance, which opens the dance floor to your guests in a fun way.


Themed Engagement Photo Shoots – Lots of coupes are getting all dolled up to fit a theme and using props for their engagement shoots. The wonderful advantage of doing a themed engagement shoot is that you can use the photos for your save-the-date cards, wedding invitations, or as part of your wedding decor.


That said, the biggest trend of all remains the inclusion of “personal touches”. So as long as you personalise your wedding, you basically can’t go wrong.

Editors Note: We’ve received a lot of inquires about the above pictured ballerina flats and where they can be purchased in Australia. The pictured flats are actually from all over the world, but what we love most about ballerina flats is that they can be found in pretty much all shoe boutiques. Some of our favourites are from Sambag, which stock some seriously stunning flats.
