Top trends: Image 1 We put the all-important questions to our experts... this time we quizzed Sarah from Carden Park.

Q How can we give our big day an edge, making it a little bit different from the norm? 

Sarah says: As wedding coordinators we know your wedding day is something you’ll remember for a lifetime, so it’s vital to stay up to date on the latest trends. From using drone photography, to colourful confetti cannons to get the dancing started, or even new ways of arranging flowers, here are a few suggestions to create a wedding day to remember.  

  • Bringing the outdoors in… No longer are flowers arranged to perfection. Kate from Blooming Beautiful, Carden Park’s on-site florist, explains: “Trees and the use of foliage is becoming increasingly popular. We’re seeing more natural, whimsical and romantic designs.”
  • The reimagined bouquet… Whether it be a brooch bouquet, a collection of feathers or an arrangement of natural foliage, more brides are opting for bouquets without flowers.
  • The rise of bridesmen and groomsgirls… More couples are employing their nearest and dearest in important W-day roles, regardless of gender. Bridesmen, groomsgirls, flower grandmas and best women; traditional wedding roles are changing. 
  • The performance… Sarah adds: “We’re seeing a rise in creative reception entrances, with the whole wedding party getting involved. These choreographed performances can really kick off the evening.”
