This year has certainly been a busy one for us here at Drangan Video and without doubt, it has been a joyous one. We have been lucky enough to travel the length and breadth of Kilkenny and Tipperary offering our services to happy brides and grooms.
I have witnessed some of the most beautiful places Ireland has to offer and been party to some incredible local wedding ceremonies in Kilkenny and Tipperary. It’s now hard to believe that the year is almost at a close and 2016 is just around the corner.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our customers, past, present and future, a very Happy Christmas and hope that your festive season is filled with fun, family, happiness and of course romance for you all.
With the year nearly at it’s wintery end, I have put together a few items for our 2016 brides and grooms to think about on the lead up to their big day:
What weddings could look like in 2016
– Hair and Makeup
Feminine, elegant hair and makeup looks set to be a big trend in 2016. Beautiful up-do’s such as side-swept buns and chignons will be as popular next year as they have been in 2015. Also, experts in the industry are predicting that much of the hair and makeup in 2016 will be vintage-inspired.
Continuing with the vintage-inspired theme, brides will likely opt for more neutral eye makeup with the focus put firmly on the lips. Of course, these are just trends and brides should wear whatever makeup they feel most comfortable with. Your wedding makeup should reflect your own personal style.
– The Dresses
The trend for bridal dresses with long sleeves, and sleeves in general, will continue throughout 2016. Strapless gowns will no longer be as universally popular as they once were, and lace continues to hold its own in the years ahead.
Dresses with plunging necklines have been featured prominently in spring 2016 catwalk collections and also look set to be popular with high street retailers. For bridesmaid gowns, there appears to be a large trend for blush pink and pastel blue dresses.
– Colour Themes and Décor
Stonewash colours and pastels look set to be trendy shades in 2016, making them a great option for brides and grooms that want to try something different. In terms of decor, whimsical romantic themes will be popular as couples start to focus more on the romance of their special day, rather than the formality. Chandeliers, flowers, and candlelight will all be popular décor elements in 2016.
– The Food
In 2016, while the traditional wedding cake will still stand strong, a few food trends do seem to be competing for the top spot. Miniature food, whether it’s quiche or cakes, will prove very popular. Miniature deserts in particular look set to be the new big trend in 2016.
I hope that budding brides and grooms find our rundown on the trends of 2016 useful for planning your 2016 wedding.
