Statement cakes

Head-turning cakes are the in-thing this wedding season. According to Forever Bride, cakes with metallic touches, different textures like rippling icing and sugar flowers, as well as unexpected shapes and colours, are totally in! The site also encourages you to find a wedding cake baker on social media like Instagram. That way, you can see their work in pictures and also read posted reviews. 

Having a band and a DJ

In the past, you had to pick either a live band or a DJ, but now you can have both! According to The Knot, having both the DJ and band can bring a bit of versatility to your wedding and appeal to all your guests’ tastes. You can have the best of both worlds! 

No-makeup make-up 

The idea might freak you out at first, but according to The Knot, natural beauty is the way to go. You can have treatments leading up to the wedding day that will have you looking your best. “Microblading to perfect your brows and micro needling to boost bridal glow are among the most popular treatments.”

Out-of-the-box venues

It’s no secret that our country has an abundance of wedding venues for just about any creed, religion or theme. Make sure the venue does not break the bank and most importantly, that it’s different and unique. According to The Knot, breweries have replaced wineries as the trendiest wedding venues. “Try to think of a venue that is out of the box and will work for you,” reads the site. 

Make it personal 

“The new way to brand your wedding can’t be seen, but it will be smelled,” reads The Knot. Personalise your wedding in a way that everyone will never forget. “Custom blends of perfumes and essential oils crafted especially for the occasion and are spritzed on invites, pumped through the venue, and even gifted in a form of a candle as a party favour can make your day unforgettable.”
