Top 5 Wedding Trends of 2016

It's finally the 2016 Summer Wedding Season. Summer Weddings are hot, but the trends that are coming with them are on fire! The Abbey has seen lots of different things but these five trends have caught our eye in the 2016 Wedding Season thus far.

Mismatched Bridesmaids

This hot new trend allows bridesmaids to choose a dress style and color that flatters them. These dresses can then be worn on more than one occasion - what a plus! Whether same dress, different color or different dress, same color, both create a uniqueness to the wedding and leave your bridesmaids looking smokin' hot!

Desserts other than cake 
Couples are getting rid of the cake and choosing a wider variety of desserts and sweets. Ice cream, cupcakes, pie, or chocolate fountain; the more treats, the better! We've seen some couples keep the cake for the traditional cake cutting pictures, but have a separate dessert table for their guests to snack on all night!

Wedding Gowns 
Wedding dress trends are always changing, but the most popular of 2016 are open backs and V-necks. Open backs keep it classy but sexy all in one dress. V-necks make for a sophisticated style while enhancing the collar bone and slimming one's figure. Wedding gowns make a fashion statement and brides are getting a lot more daring while looking for dramatic beauty with the dress. 

Freshly picked flowers 
Brides want their weddings to be casual but elegant, and a less structured floral design brings out that effect perfectly. Some couples are going for the "wild" look with different flower sizes and branches, fruiting vines, and even spiky flowers! Couples are looking for whatever is in season so that they can bring a fresh, wild look to their wedding. 

Sparkle is in! Every girl likes feeling like a star on her special day, so let yourself shine! You can put sparkle in everything from your flower arrangements and jewelry to linens, bridesmaid's dresses, and even invitations. Metallic shades like rose gold and copper are the some of the most requested shades for 2016.
