If you’re getting married in 2016, your wedding planning is probably well under way. Many of the wedding trends that will pop up over the next 12 months are already in the works. The Addison wedding planners have sourced some of the most anticipated wedding trends for 2016 to help you plan which trends truly represent your personal style.

WEDDING CAKE STAND INS!

People are saying “no” to the traditional wedding cake and replacing the cakes of old with fun and frivolous dessert and treat bars. 2016 will see dessert tables featuring an assortment of cakes, tiered cheesecakes, an abundance of donuts and pies, dessert bars and for the long journey home; cookies and milk!

METALLIC MANIA

The elevated version of sparkle and bling has brought numerous amounts of gold, silver and metallic color palettes to every aspect of the embellishing process. Brides are using foil printing and stamped lettering to incorporate modern sparkle elements into their invitations and stationery. Sequenced gold linens and mercury vases will adorn tables. Bridesmaids will sparkle in metallic dresses. Rose gold and copper are already expected to be two of the most requested shades for 2016.

MISMATCHED BRIDESMAIDS

The days of matching bridesmaids are gone. Brides are now choosing to let their ladies shine in styles that flatter their bodies. The extra bonus is many of these outfits end up being worn more than once, which we love! It’s a stunning look. This trend isn’t going anywhere.

3 – IN – 1 TREND

Planners around the globe are all predicting 3 trends for 2016. Intimate & Rustic Venues, Neutral Color Palettes with metallic sparkle and Woodland-themed floral and decor: dense greenery and sticks or wood slices used to give a woodland feel. The Addison is not only a historic 1920’s estate with 2 enormous Banyan trees taking center stage within the magnificent courtyard but this idyllic backdrop is the perfect location to feature not only the elegance and glitz of the metallic’s but also woodland themed décor that are headlining at weddings during 2016.

These are two beautifully achieved rustic themed intimate weddings hosted in the Mizner Ballroom and Main Dining Room and Courtyard which feature many of the 2016 wedding trends.

This Rustic Wedding hosted in the Mizner Ballroom featured metallic’s, 3D laser cut props and wooden table décor and floral.

BRUNCH WEDDINGS

Budget conscious brides wanting to incorporate elegance and host an intimate event are saying yes to morning ceremonies and hosting brunch instead of dinner. Mimosas and delicious breakfast items will do the trick.
