First look photos of the bride and groom before the ceremony is a relatively new trend that is going to endure. Couples have ditched the old tradition of "it is considered as bad luck for the groom to see the bride before the ceremony". This allows the couple more time with there guests after the ceremony.
From vineyard weddings to beach ceremonies, you can marry virtually anywhere, and modern couples are constantly searching for unique locations. Faraway destinations are definitely trending, so why not turn your wedding into a short holiday!
Whether you prefer vintage, rustic, industrial or any other wedding theme, metallic shades are a trendy addition to your colour palette. Copper, rose gold and pewter were the hottest shades of 2016 and they will remain to be popular in 2017 as well. From your stationery and bridesmaid dresses to your cake, you can incorporate metallic details into your wedding day.
Festoon and fairy lights, paper lanterns, suspended blooms, lined ceilings… beautiful hanging decorations are a new must-have at modern weddings! Whether you are celebrating in a lavish ballroom or in a rustic winery, ambience lighting and colourful floral arrangements suspended above tables instantly add romance to the space and we love them!
Wild, organic florals that eclectically combine various colours and textures have replaces the neat, structured bouquets and arrangements. The key to this look is a relaxed freshly-picked-from-the-garden vibe and you can achieve it with both traditional wedding flowers and the enchanting Australian natives.
Laid-back lace gowns, crochets, kaftans, ethnic embroideries, fringe and floral crowns casually thrown on top of loose wavy hair are the key elements of a bohemian look. Add lavishly decorated tipis, DIY ceremony arches, feathers, ethnic prints and rough, unstructured florals to the mix and you will have the perfect boho wedding styling which is ideal for beach and country destinations.

If you want to break away from tradition and avoid traditional bridesmaid colours, white is the perfect choice. It won’t date and the options are endless!
Food trucks have long been a favourite food option all around the world, and they are also a super-popular wedding catering trend that is here to stay. If refreshing drinks or ice-cream during a summertime ceremony, midnight made-to-order Mexican and fresh doughnuts for a late night snack, all sound perfect for your wedding celebration then a food truck is perfect to satisfy your guests needs.
Champagne has always been a crucial part of a wedding celebration. Serving signature cocktails is a new tradition that is here to stay! Find unique recipes and make delicious his and hers cocktails or even serve a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic options. Champagne cocktails are very on-trend at the moment!
Modern couples often have their closest female friend or family member a part of the groom's party and their closest male friend or family member a part of the bride's party, so feel free to make any combination you like! Finding co-ordinating outfits doesn’t have to be a problem, especially if you opt for an informal or semi-formal dress code, or simply opt for neutral colours such as black, navy or grey.
