Back to basics

Nicola Briginshaw, Creative Director of wedding décor specialists Fuschia Designs, predicts a shift towards rustic styles: “There’s no better way to give your guests a taste of what’s to come on the Big Day than with your wedding stationery. The rustic theme will continue to be huge, and our Rustic Romance collection is wildly popular. We recommend using pastel alongside hessian for that stripped-back feel that brides adore.”1.

Petal power shows no sign of wilting

Florals, inextricably linked to weddings, will continue to be in demand. Rosalind Miller Cakes gives us their take on the trend: “The wedding cake is becoming more important, and couples increasingly want it to be the centre of attention at their reception. Opulent cakes are becoming popular.”
Luxury stationer Dimitria Jordan agrees: “Whether it’s vintage style illustrations, photographic or hand-drawn, florals suit any theme or colour scheme. Dusky pinks look gorgeous in vintage style illustrations and would be perfect for a romantic summer wedding, for example."

Bold and beautiful, sharp lines are big news

Strong, geometric patterns are becoming more and more popular in weddings. One way to nail geo is with stripes, either as a pattern on your tables or as a fabulous ribbon wall. It makes a gorgeous backdrop and is suited to any setting, whether your reception’s in a castle, a manor house or a classic country barn.

Flood your day with this arty trend

“Wedding cakes look set to take inspiration from the art world with watercolour-inspired designs” predicts Krishanthi Armitt from Cakes by Krishanthi. “The flowing shades in this technique are dreamy and romantic, making them perfect for weddings.
This forecast is echoed by stationer Dimitria Jordan: "The beauty of watercolours is you can adjust the intensity to suit the look you’re after. A light wash or small details will add a tint to stationery, whereas a stronger application adds texture."

Victoria Waktin-Jones of cake designer Victoria Made adds: “Dessert tables that complement cakes are becoming the norm, either as extra bites for guests or a few pretty additions on stands of different heights to set off the main event.”
