Wedding Trends

Metallic wedding cakes

Never before have cakes been so opulent and rich! The hottest trend for 2015 when it comes to wedding cakes is most definitely cakes decorated in metallic shades of silver, gold and platinum. Wedding cakes for the upcoming season are gorgeous, sparkling and embellished with jewels or beautiful flowers. The cake flavours are also more adventurous and the style of cakes leaning towards non-traditional and more adventurous arrangements.

This is hardly a surprise given the trend towards more whimsical reception décor and wedding dress styles. Visit our Pinterest boards for more wedding cake inspiration.


Lace and striking illusion backs on wedding dresses

This season's hottest trend is lace and every wedding designer across the world has incorporated this gorgeous trend into their Wedding dress collections for 2015. What's more, couture wedding dress designers have taken this trend one step further by creating magnificent, striking illusion backs on their wedding dresses.

Wedding dresses this season are a combination of feminine and sexy, luxurious and whimsical. Visit our Pinterest boards for more lace inspiration.


2014 – The year of true Romance

This year sets the scene for weddings that are softer, gentle, more lush, more opulent yet more heartfelt, definitely more intimate and classically timeless – think modern day Downtown Abbey & The Great Gatsby!

Elegant Patterns

Patterns are gentle and soft, lace, stripes, florals and trellis designs – understated & elegant they add a unique touch, a statement that is yours!

Hot Menu’s

Menu’s have an eastern influence with chili and spices inspiring chefs to create dishes that are hot & sexy!

Persoanlized, local wedding favours

Wedding favours – uniquely personal and based on the destination the wedding is taking place. Instead of a traditional wedding favour, place a welcome gift in the hotel room of your guests (local hand-made soap) or a post-wedding thank you (Tea & biscuits or scones with home-made jam)

Romantic Flowers

Flowers are abundant, romantic, soft & lush. Imagine Peonies or small fragrant garden roses mixed with hydrangeas and strands of pearls or sparkling beads. Flower garlands are becoming popular again draped over doorways or used as runners down the centre of long tables.

Sparkling shimmering Cakes

Cakes are decadent adorned in glitter and shimmers of gold and silver with flavours driven by the season.

Themed Music

Music – live bands are making a comeback! Choose music that suits your theme or add an element of surprise with a saxophone or brass band playing music from your favourite hits playlist.

This seasons colours

Colours for this season – pink is back in gentle shades and soft tones of blushes, nudes and peaches!

Uniquely illustrated invitations

Invitations are becoming smaller (5cm x 7cm) and even more personal with personal illustrations done by artists commissioned especially to draw scenes and images specific to the bride and groom or wedding theme.

Elegant Service

The Service Style is that of “approachable elegance” Elegantly clad waiters in black tie, white gloves, impeccable service that is again under-stated. Food is served Family-style & is more interactive – bread boards with exquisite cheeses, dim sum on platters.
