2016 Spring Wedding Trends

Happy Thursday!

Although the cold has arrived and I am loving the cozy nights in, I am already so looking forward to the Spring!

The TCD team has some amazing couples to work with this season and we are truly excited as we work through their wedding details.

Are you planning for the upcoming wedding season? Get inspired with these trends:

Food stations and cocktail style receptions are becoming more and more popular. Giving your guests an opportunity to try different foods, eat slowly and mingle is a great way to make your evening unique.

*It is important to consider the age group of your guest list and ensure there is some seating available for those who may need it.

A metallic is always a nice accent to you color palette. We love the warmth that comes with bronze and copper details!

For those who have read my previous posts, you know I love textures! Layering fabrics, glassware, florals and greenery can add so much dimension to your tablesscape. We love the way natural textures combined with chic fabrics and mix and match accents can come together so beautifully.

2016 colors

I am usually a total neutrals girls! I love the soft color palettes and romantic tones but I have to say Pantone’s top 10 colors for Spring 2016 have me inspired for some bright and fun projects!

Happy Planning!

Setting the table

When it comes to your reception, the floorplan and tables will make a huge impact on the overall look and feel of your wedding. Designing your tablescape can be a difficult task so we’ve come up with a few tips to make this process easier!


1. Ensure you follow the size guidelines; a crowded table with too many seats is never comfortable.

2. Don’t be afraid of textures. Using natural materials, various fabrics and layering dishes can do wonders for your table settings.

3. Consider heights. We love the use of high and low pieces however you want to consider the visual lines of your guests. Everyone at the table should be able to converse (without a centrepiece in the way).

4. Think about the little things. Will you have a full place settings on the day of your wedding? Use all the items on the mock up to ensure you have enough space for all the pieces you envision (in addition to the necessities – salt and pepper shakers!)

5. Personalize it! Are you a couple that loves to travel? Use the names of cities you have been to in place of table numbers. Are you marrying a soy bean farmer? Place soy beans in the bottom of the votives.

The thought that goes into the little details is what makes this day about you as a couple. Small adjustments to typical items can truly make your experience special.

Happy Planning!
