With wedding season in full swing, our Toast-ites have noticed a surge in some great trends appearing at nuptials across the UK and beyond. So for all of you brides and grooms to be, we have whittled down the top trends so far for 2016 to inspire you in your bid for wedding greatness!
Go your own way
The time for the copycat wedding is over, couples are embracing their own imagination for their big day, being true to themselves and creating a wedding style which will never go out of fashion. In an age where digital reigns supreme a personal touch really stands out, be it a locally sourced wedding breakfast full of your favourite dishes or a beer garden overflowing with locally brewed ales, brides and grooms are making sure their wedding showcases who they are, creating a day full of fun, quirks and personality.
Bring it back
Lots of couples are embracing their heritage and using their past as influence for their wedding music. Got Mexican blood flowing through your veins? Why not make it a party to remember with a band like the Tequlia Slammers. Or if your family tree hails from north-of-the-border then Toast Ceilidh or Highland Piper might add that something special to your wedding day.
Wield the Metallics
Think gold and silver are for the bling bride? Think again. 2016 has brought metallics to the forefront of wedding style. From burnished copper accenting rustic barn décor to romantic rose gold casting soft focus across a stately home, metallics are versatile, stylish and here to stay.
Mix it Up
Running yourself ragged trying to please everyone during your reception? Relax! The latest music trend is for an eclectic mix of music, blending current hits with old school classics guarantees there will be something for everyone. Our Toast DJs understand the importance of universally enjoyable music and are seasoned pros at getting everyone up on the dance-floor.
A great way to add interest to your wedding is to choose different acts for each segment of your day. For instance, a stunning string quartet during your wedding ceremony, a vintage songstress during cocktail hour, a beautiful harpist providing background music during your wedding breakfast, a toe tapping party band to kick off your reception and finally a top DJ to take your guests into the early hours.
