The team at Not on the Highstreet share some of their favourite trends and wedding styling ideas…
Styling your big day is all about finding your personal style. You already know the way you dress and how you decorate your home, so why change when it comes to ‘the big day’?
Couples are increasingly making the day a personal expression of themselves as a couple and that often means having a lot of fun. Wedding decoration is an area our Partners excel in, often created because it’s something they themselves wanted at their own wedding but couldn’t find at the time.
Our top styling trends and ideas:
I have seen a lot of interest in the bolder shades recently as couples experiment with bright fiesta and tropical shades. As weddings in sunnier climes continue to prove popular, even those taking place on these shores can have an element of the tropics. I love seeing how couples experiment with the use of terrariums to bring blooms inside and with bolder florals featuring on wedding stationery. Pick three key colours and accent with lush foliage – if the bride is wearing white, this style really makes the dress pop!
Origami and Paper creations
Whether making them themselves or buying in, paper crafting has really seen a resurgence of late with our partners taking inspiration from both the traditional and the modern. These products create great backdrops, which couples can use either as a back drop to the ceremony itself or as a focal point for formal and informal photographs
But that’s not the only area of wedding decorations that I’ve seen this being used. Everything from chair signs to bouquets, place cards to decorations that can be repurposed for the home. The fact that so many of our products are handmade, with the papers chosen and sourced by the partner, means that these products can be completely tailored to the couples colour scheme making it that little bit more personal. Consider opting out of the traditional bouquet and choose a paper bouquet or stem.
A really great update on the rustic trend. Home trends often have a direct impact on wedding styling and I love the way that copper is such a strong accent in this area. Succulents, ferns, simple shapes and laser cutting all feature here together with the more traditional aspects of rustic such as burlap, hessian and wood. It’s great that this look can create quite a timeless aesthetic while still being truly modern.
