Ideas We Love

Why we're loving fall/winter 2015's wedding trends and how you can incorporate them in your own celebrations

Get in the mood of the season and take the best of the colour palettes and details to create a gorgeous rustic fall/winter-like vibe for your wedding.

Colour themes
This season's colour palettes are a blend of rustic and sophisticated themes. Dramatic hues such as wine red or marsala (Pantone's Colour of the Year for 2015), white, orange, grey, olive and brown offer a more in-depth texture to table settings, cakes, bouquets, and so on. 

Instead of full-on rustic details, which have been on many brides' Pinterest boards for several seasons now, weddings are now more inclined towards rustic-glamour. Vintage touches such as wood elements, baby's breath, and farm-style celebrations are now incorporated with romantic and luxurious colour palettes such as blush pink, gold, and grey - the best of both worlds.

Whether for your bouquet, aisle decorations, or centrepieces, flowers are a great way to play up any theme subtly. For fall/winter, consider using berries, twigs, hellebores, dusty millers, honeysuckle, alstromeria, amaranthus, lilies, protea, narcissus, Queen Anne's lace, and roses - which are usually in season during the winter months in the Northern Hemisphere.

Bridal fashion
On the runways for fall/winter 2015: Bridal separates, plunging necklines, sheer necklines, dramatic embellishments (such as glitter, as well as intricate beadworks), floral appliques and light, flowy silhouettes, which are actually perfect for our tropical climate.
