Wedding season is here, a whole summer of celebrating the beautiful union of two people – and some fantastic parties afterwards, right? We’re not going to lie, weddings have become competitive sport with everybody wanting to one-up their friends. We’ve seen some seriously spectacular weddings with equally awesome wedding lighting, but there’s a whole world of nuptials out there. So just how do you decide on a decorative wedding theme with so many to choose from?
Easy, we’ve painstakingly picked out the three biggest wedding trends for this year; read on to be truly inspired…
Flowers for a wedding is nothing new but the new florals see outrageously bold flower displays take centre stage. Think multi-coloured bouquets with untamed wild flowers or rare blooms, full flower wall displays a la Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, and real flowers appearing even on cakes.

Pom Pom Party
One of the simplest yet most effective decorative methods you can employ is to go crazy with some pom poms – it’s astounding what a bit of tissue paper can do! Not only will they wow you and your guest but are ridiculously inexpensive; so you get a lot of pom pom for your pound.

Beautiful Barn Dance
The venue du jour for weddings this year is a rustic barn – but forget hay bales and wellies. It’s easy to create chic, elegant weddings in a wooden barn! Use clever decorations and plenty of swagged lights, like our best-selling and you can easily achieve a warm, welcoming, vintage-inspired look.
