Wedding reception and decor trends 2010

You want your wedding to look different. Here are simple ideas to give your celebration a personal touch.

Black Accents Are Back

We’re talking little black lacquer flower vases, black pillows in the lounge area, black glassware. To keep it from looking too dark, choose a deep jewel tone like deep blue, purple, or even red. It'll give your reception that timelessly chic, formal, time-for-cocktails-and-fun feel.

Props as Centerpieces

Re-think the term, reception centerpiece and incorporate decorative accessories (like the kind you would use to spruce up a coffee table, kitchen shelf, or fireplace mantle) into your centerpieces. Sparkly spheres, brilliant mercury glass pieces, or even a retro scale topped with fruit and flowers like this one can become the focal point of your tables.

Fabric Wrapped Vases

Forget about stressing over roses versus lilies and put the focus on your vases by wrapping them in eye-catching fabrics to give them a textured look and feel. To keep he look clean (not messy), choose flowers in the same colour like this all-white table here.

Great Gatsby Garden Decor

Button up a backyard or garden wedding with silver mint julep vases; pretty white garden urns and pedestals, and plenty of silver cocktail hour trays. Small flower arrangements on crisp cocktail tables will set the scene for an event Jay Gatsby would be proud of.

An Eclectic Mix of Monochromatic Vases

Like the mix and matched, wildflower, outdoor wedding aesthetic? Choose a monochromatic mix of flowers in all different shapes and sizes for your tables filled with colourful flowers for a more streamlined pulled-together look.

White Bouquets with Attention-Grabbing Wraps

Let your bouquet wrap shine by choosing all-white flowers. Then personalize it by asking your florist to wrap the stems with beads, sequins, pretty pins, shells, crocheted lace, or even twine are just a few ideas.

Pink & Brown

A sweet mix of pink and browns are pleasing to the eye. Consider short flower arrangements to keep the focus on the colour theme.

Lollipop wedding

Who says weddings have to be mellow? We love bright colours which brings out the positive vibes in people.

Black and gold

Ok so you prefer something dramatic, black and gold will not go wrong when you have bright flowers to bring cheer to the table. Consider fairy lights to create a dark night sky effect.

Sea-breeze weddings

Blue and white weddings

Blue and white weddings create a very laid back atmosphere. To avoid a bare feeling, have big bouquets of flowers as centrepieces.

Under the Sea wedding

Can't get enough of the sea? Create a unique centrepiece using seashells and painted dry twigs (corals are meant to stay in the sea!).

Green & white

For a natural high tea wedding, opt for light colours such as light green and white. Have fruits adorn the table for that in the backyard feel.
