What’s your wedding style? Traditional elegance… Vintage glam… or something a little more unconventional? These days, wedding themes don’t conform to previous conventions of masses of white florals and four-tiered cakes. Your wedding is essentially, the biggest party you’ll ever throw, so today’s couples are throwing tradition to the wind, and embracing a world of new styles for the ultimate celebration-fest. From seasonal themes to the latest celebrity-inspirted trends, today’s wedding backdrops inspire imaginations and push the boundaries.
So, let’s have a look at what’s taking over this year…
With summer just around the corner, it’s no surprise that natural florals and foliage are becoming huge on the wedding hot-list. Think secret garden (or Kim and Kanye’s infamous rose backdrop): beautiful, romantic flowers arranged in elegant, tall vases as table centrepieces, or hung over every wall and beam. For mere inspiration, look no further than the stunning grounds and gardens of Dewsall Court, and their rustic interiors cater perfectly for a ‘bringing the outdoors in’ feel.
Neutral tones are huge this year, accented by bright colours or metallic shades. Charcoals, greys and browns look elegant with blush pink, copper or rose gold accents and create a stunning and idyllic vibe for any wedding, in any season or location. Built in the 17th century, Dewsall Court is characterised by the neutral stone work and brown wooden beams; adding these coloured accents lets you show off your own personality, intertwined with the distinctive venue’s character and charm.
Vintage Charm (with a modern twist)
Vintage is the new ‘new’, and couples planning their big day are embracing this with open arms. Try to avoid full-blown ‘blast from the past’ by mixing the old with the new. Think rustic barn with modern décor, or industrial warehouse chic with soft furnishings and traditional pastel colours. These mash-ups and mixes are a great way to show your personality and tastes whilst moving on from traditional styles.
From guests lounging on hay bales to shindigs in rustic barns, country chic has taken 2017 by storm and has become a popular choice for couples looking to recreate their very own festival vibe. Think country piles, rolling countryside and outbuildings waiting like a blank canvas for you to make your own. Dewsall Court is a perfect example of the ultimate country chic. Set in 12 acres of land, with a stunning recently renovated barn, the house and grounds make the perfect backdrop for your dream wedding décor (and Insta-worthy pictures!)
