The wedding season is underway this year and we’re thrilled to play an important part in so many of your weddings.
Whether you’re the happy couple or a guest sharing their big day we’re sure you’ll see a number of these trends at weddings this year and well into 2016.
Whilst the shabby chic and DIY themes are still on trend, the return to full glamour will be a feature of many weddings this year. Think brides in ball gown dresses and grooms in black tie/tuxedo. In fact our most formal of outfits the Prince Charlie Outfit will be perfect for the glamorous wedding, both for the groom and for guests.
Unusual wedding venues
Those couples looking to really impress will opt for a venue to get people talking. In Scotland there is no shortage of castles to impress and the fact that your able to get married outdoors in Scotland makes most ideas a real possibility. Just take a look at this Buzzfeed post for inspiration.
From zoos to breweries and farms to theatres, a venue that allows the couple to have fun and show a little of their personality is going to feature highly on 2015/16 weddings.
From bridesmaid dresses in bold colours to decorations and even block colour wedding cakes, the couples who want to show their fun side, add colour to their wedding. We often see a couple’s theme built entirely around the groom’s kilt. Pick a bold colour that complements a colour in the kilt for a super co-ordinated look that’s also fun.
Food and Drink
The food and drink options create another chance to have a talking point and memorable part of the wedding. Weddings this season may feature anything from an ice cream cart/van to a mobile food van serving your dinner. We’ve seen hog roasts and fish and chips at weddings we’ve already been to! With the pop up restaurant and street food trend here for the long haul these are sure to appear at weddings .
Couples are also having fun with cocktail bars and even whisky tasting sessions. A great way for guests to interact and they’re certain to leave with amazing memories of the day.
Gone are the days when a groom’s biggest input was the proposal, Grooms are getting involved in wedding planning. Not only are they having a say in wedding venues and food choices but taking the lead in design and technology for the day as well as choices for colour schemes and themes.
Our 2015 grooms are also fashion conscious and see their wedding day as a chance to wear a favourite outfit suit, or splash out on new clothes for the day. We’re seeing grooms quite easily spending the same amount on their outfit as the bride, and looking great for doing so. Whilst our Scottish made bespoke outfits are high on the list for such grooms you can easily create this look for less with our budget options.
