Whether you are planning your wedding last minute or you just need some quick inspiration, The Old Rectory Wedding Venue in Essex is here to help!
With years of experience working in the wedding industry we know what is a hit, what is a flop and what makes your wedding one to remember. With the help of industry leading experts and well-known wedding planners, we have put together the top then wedding trends for 2017 that will make your guests say wow!
One of the biggest trends for 2017 is bringing the outdoors, indoors! Making centre pieces green, using nature’s best gifts and creating natural decorations is a trending theme this year with everything from small leaves to large trees.
As well as bringing the greenery indoors, many brides and grooms are actually holding weddings outside right in the middle of it all!
Leading on from greenery, newly engaged couples are looking at holding weddings in large gardens for intimate affairs. Whether you have 200 guests or 50, a wedding outside in the sunshine or moonlight really makes your day special and different. With your own added flare, you can turn any back garden into the wedding of your dreams and totally transform a once bland garden space into something spectacular.
Here at The Old Rectory we have our own garden areas that are privately used for our wedding guests of the day. With access to the whole grounds, you can relax in the rolling hills and still head indoors when it gets a bit chilly!
Vintage Comes Back
2015 saw vintage as one of its biggest themes and it has finally come back into action! There are so many little and large accessories you can choose to make your wedding theme vintage but below are some suggested by The Huffington Post back in 2015.
Vintage venue that has character
Range of colours rather than one specific theme
Don’t overdo the flowers
Be careful not to look like you are wearing costumes
Don’t try to be something you’re not
Choose good photography to capture your best moments
Bring something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue very easily with the vintage theme and keep it classical with The Old Rectory Wedding Venue in Essex.
Neutral Is A Big Hit
Any shade of neutral can make a huge impact at your wedding. Whether you choose warm tones or colder greys, neutral can make your guests wow without having to introduce bright attention grabbing colours.
Keep the attention on the minor details and add hints of gold, silver and foils that can highlight special features throughout your wedding. With neutral never going out of date or aging, you can look back on your wedding album in decades to come and still be over the moon with everything you chose. What’s not to love about that?
Who would have thought that watercolour could be introduced into weddings tastefully? We love it!
Watercolour has been a trend for many years now and it is has finally gained some element of class that can be used in flowers, bridesmaid’s dresses, invitations and table centre pieces to totally transform your wedding from the traditional to something spectacular. Being a very creative design, you can do it yourself or even rope in your wedding guests to help out in the run up to your big day.
