    Creative Wedding Invitations and Wedding Stationery

    Don’t hold back, let your creativity flow and just go with it! Your save the date cards and wedding invitations offer your guests their very first glimpse of the tone of your wedding and your chosen wedding theme, so it’s important that you opt to customise your wedding invitations with unique touches. For instance, monograms are quite commonly used for traditional wedding invitations, however we expect to see a modernised version making a comeback for 2019 weddings. We love the idea of having a white ink or foiled monogram to really give your wedding cards an elegant, luxe touch. Did you know Dreamday Invitations offers silver, gold, rose gold and copper foiling for your foiled wedding stationery?

    For something extra, we recently had a couple have a wedding signature scent created and all their wedding stationery was scented with this - what a unique and beautiful touch!

    Floral Hoops for your Wedding Decor

    This is an unique new look that can be used for any part of your floral wedding decor from bouquets and ceremony backdrops to tent decorations and is particularly great for large spaces as it creates an impressive visual impact without you having to spend bucket loads to decorate the entire space.

    If you need more space on your tables, why not drop centerpieces and instead switch things up with hanging floral hoops for each table? They’ll look great for pictures, and you’ll also have tons more table space which can be used for sharing platters, drinks and allowing easy conversation across the table too!

    Ditch Your Wedding Dress For Pants

    Seems like a bold decision, but so many brides just want to be comfortable and opting to ditch your wedding dress in favour of pants is just the way to do this! Many designers are onto this new trend and can be seen creating elegant and feminine bridal looks with pants. If you’re still a traditional bride at heart who loves the idea of wearing a wedding dress, you can always opt to change into a bridal pantsuit at your reception - just perfect for dancing the night away!

    Unplugged Wedding Day

    Well meaning guests may unknowingly ruin your official wedding photographs by getting in the way when trying to take their own shots, which is why unplugged weddings are expected to become a really popular wedding trend in 2019. You can include this on your wedding invitations, as well as on a few tastefully placed signs at your wedding ceremony so that guests are aware of your request.

    Metallic colours have always been favoured to glam up any wedding. However, in 2016 we will find this design used just about everywhere; wedding dresses, wedding invitations, table decor and more. Silver will take a backstage with rose gold being the focal choice of metallic to be highlighted in your wedding design.

    Sentimental Decorative Elements

    Add a personal touch to your reception décor by featuring sentimental trinkets from your travels as table centrepieces to tell your love story (for example an ornament of the Eiffel Tower to represent the location your beloved proposed).

    Creative Seating

    We recently wrote a blog post on Creative Wedding Seating Styles and Ideas that will be of great use in 2016. Designers have forecasted that wedding receptions may move away from traditional seating choices and styles to more out-of-the box options.

    Sit Down Dinners and Gueridon Service

    DreamDay Invitations 2016 Wedding Trends Sit Down Dinner Gueridon Service

    While 2015 was all about food stations, we will be moving onto classic sit-down dinners with pre-set menus. Imagine how beautiful your sovereign menu cards will be. That will also mean you should include food preference information in your RSVP card when sending out your wedding invitation package! However, apart from the wait staff serving your choice of menu, brides and grooms can also opt for gueridon service (a trolley service, where food is cooked, finished or presented to guests at their table from a moveable trolley).  Dishes that can be served via gueridon service include Caesar salads, and steak tartar to name a few.

    Pretty Wedding Cakes

    DreamDay Invitations 2016 Wedding Trends Naked Wedding Cakes

    Naked cakes are still on trend. Naked cakes are unfrosted or partially frosted for a refined and classy look to a rustic cake. They can be finished off by accessorising them with berries or fresh flowers.

    DreamDay Invitations 2016 Wedding Trends Handpainted Wedding Cakes

    Apart from “naked” cakes, you can still opt for a completely fondant covered cake which can then be accessorised with hand-painted icing. This wedding cake style is versatile and elegant. Many brides who love the idea of watercolour wedding invitations and stationery can carry the design through to the wedding cake. All you need is to use similar brush strokes and colour palettes used on the outer facade of the wedding cake.
