If you’re just starting to plan your big day, then you’ll need to know about the hottest wedding decor trends this season! Arabian Tent Company share their five favourites with us…
Greenery is Pantone’s colour of the year, and the colour that every wedding is rocking! Known by its official name as 15-0343 Greenery, this fresh shade is perfect for wedding decor, as it brings to mind the idea of surrounding yourself with nature and natural textures. Think huge tumbling foliage installations in the ceiling, foliage tie-backs and Astroturf bars, or even using the green grass as the floor for your marquee. To avoid too much of a jungle look, counterbalance this by using soft voile fabric and pretty fairy lights to create a magical Midsummer Night’s Dream effect.
Chair designs have developed somewhat since the gilt banqueting variety of the 80s, as people have realised how they can make or break a look inside a marquee! 2017 is the year of the cross-backed chair, and these Hamptons-style oak cross back chairs add an air of rustic elegance to any venue.
If you want a more timeless classic look, the Chiavari chair looks great when draped in chiffon white, or even with foliage added for the top table!
Pimp your drink
Going hand in hand with encouraging more interactivity, a pretty ‘Pimp your Prosecco’ bar means you can let your guests design their own drinks, all while providing an extra decorative element to your reception space! You’ll need Prosecco, fruit and fruit juice plus various types of bowls and pitchers. Go to town on the decor, whilst incorporating your theme, and leave instructions to guests on what to do! We love these little mason jars with hand written labels and a hessian board.
Give your decor an edgy element with the use of traditionally utilitarian materials – think scaffolding tables, pallet furniture and hessian covers. This look works beautifully because of the contrast of textures, such as using furs on the rustic wooden pallet furniture. Plus, with an ever-increasing number of industrial inner-city spaces opening up for private hire, it’s easier than ever to find a venue that’s fit for transformation.
Suspended florals and decorative items add an instant wow factor to any venue! Hanging decor encourages guests to look above eye level, which is perfect if you are drawing attention to high ceilings. If you are hanging florals, remember they may start to wilt over more than a couple of days so make sure these are one of the last things you do in preparation for the big day!
