We just love a wedding! Whether it's Winter, Summer, Autumn or Spring we look forward to adding a touch of sparkle to lots of events through 2017 with our giant illuminated letters. One thing that we love when setting up at events is seeing how creative our brides and grooms can be when they come to adding the finishing touches to their big day, from our giant letters to the meticulous detail of favours and how they are presented.
So what do we think is on the horizon for 2017.....
The traditional heavy fruit cake is out and shabby chic sponge is in! A wedding is something you make your own not something you need to conform to and these days we have found our brides and grooms are opting for things like an 'undressed sponge' - a traditional victoria sponge with no icing but dusted with berries and flowers. Light deserts - meaning towers of scrumptious pastel macarons, or a cascade of pretty cupcakes. It would seem the cake can often be overlooked by guests but not these showstoppers!
An ever popular choice but of course limited to a couple of seasons! We think the outdoors with it being so relaxed and a natural setting is becoming more and more popular. The outdoors gives you an enormous choice of creating your theme... lit up by fairly lights and illuminated letters it would just ooze romance. Some couples are choosing a pretty woodland giving a rural and back to nature kind of feel and others choosing a beach ceremony by the sea – there’s so much to choose from!
Long gone are the big meringue style dresses filled with frills and frippery - bring on the slim-line silhouette gown enriched with elite elegance, this style is vast becoming the popular choice. We have noticed that colour choices have gone from the traditional white and ivory to cappuccino and baby blues, its so lovely to see that your favourite colours could be brought into your dress and not just for your decoration.
2017 is now set with some fantastic ideas for you to peruse for your wedding. Remember to keep the day about you, your uniqueness and personality has to flow through as this is your big day! Plus adding those special touches that really make it an occasion to remember for both you and your guests.
If you would like to talk to one of the team about our light up letters and how they can bring a sprinkle of sparkle for your big day then just get in touch and we’ll be happy to help!
