This stemmed from the time where rustic weddings were (and still are) hot. Fairylights, Edison bulbs that adorn walls and ceilings in venues such as rooftop spaces and warehouses.
Lighting is everything
Instead of flowers as the main medium for decorations, lights are now taking centrestage. See point one on how couples are utilizing their newfound knowledge.
Bright and beautiful
Pastels are out. Deep, dramatic hues such as wine red and white, marsala (Pantone’s colour of the year for 2015), olive, fuchsia, orange and sapphire blue, for instance, are in.

All that glitters
Metallic accents such as gold, copper and burnished bronzes are making regular appearances in the form of reworked mirror frames, chargers or service plates, cakes, invitations and accessories such as glitter on shoes.
The trend of having sumptuous arrangements never really died down, but they’re bigger and better this fall, as centrepieces, wedding arch decorations and chairs.
Ripe for the picking
Fruits are also making appearances in decorations – whether as part of the cheese platter, centrepieces, or in bouquets.
Ethereal wedding dresses
Floaty layers, bucolic lace designs or elaborate art-deco beaded bodices ruled the runways this year, and look set to continue being a favourite amongst brides today.
