If you’re planning on getting married, one of the first decisions you’ll have to make is how you want your ceremony to go down.
Do you want a traditional church wedding? A super quirky hand-fasting complete with home-made cake and your dog as ring-bearer? Or perhaps somewhere in between? Whatever flavour of matrimony you choose, we’ve got your back with these 5 super stylish trends for modern weddings!
Here are 5 show stopping trends by Toronto Photobooth:
If you’re a young millennial couple who get more of your news from Tumblr and Twitter than from the mainstream media, then this is the wedding trend for you!
Although it varies from couple to couple, an increasingly popular feature of modern weddings is the sharing of key images from the big day on social media, in what’s called a ‘social media wedding invitation’.
If you’re the kind of bride who likes to keep costs down by buying your dress from a high street store, then this trend’s for you!
A number of forward-thinking bridal designers have cottoned on to the fact that many brides want to look glamorous for less, and have started quietly incorporating high street wedding dresses into their collections.
Need a stylish way of covering up for your outdoor reception in summer? Try one of these little white jackets! A lot like the small bolero jackets you might find in any winter bridal collection, these babies are light enough to wear in the warmer months. And super cute!
If you’ve always dreamed of walking down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon but don’t want to make your guests endure eight-and-a-half minutes of it, fear not – there are other options out there! From string quartets to rock bands via opera singers and gospel choirs, it’s never been easier to find awesome live musicians for your wedding.
Think outside the box too – you might not want the ‘traditional’ pre-ceremony entertainment anymore but you can still make your guests sweat by getting them up on stage (or at least in the audience) for a live karaoke!
If you’re looking for something truly different to do at your wedding, why not have an open bar? No, we don’t mean the kind of ‘open bar’ where you have to pay £10 per shot of vodka – I mean an open bar where you can serve whatever you like!
Of course, it goes without saying that you will have to carefully consider your guests’ tastes in advance – but if the worst comes to the worst and someone turns their nose up at your beautiful concoctions, they can always go and get drunk elsewhere!
