Create a wedding that’s as unique and beautiful as you! MW has scoured the globe and called in the experts to reveal what’s hot, happening and heart-pounding in wedding style.
The cookie-cutter reception has left the building! Outdoor festival style receptions are making a big impact. Create a free-spirited celebration on a long weekend: think masses of bunting and festoon lights, glamping in luxe tipis, multiple bands and wooden tables filled with share platters stretching as far as the eye can see.

Brunch is #Boss
Not only is a breakfast or brunch wedding super-stylish; it can even be more economical than an evening event. Style it up with a bubbly colour palette, pancake station, lashings of toppings and fresh fruit, hot croissants and a mimosa bar.

Marble has made its mark on styling in a big way and the next natural evolution is other beautiful stone-inspired details. From quartz décor to agate table numbers, turquoise cookies and amethyst cupcakes, you can expect to see crystals and geodes rocking their way into weddings in a plethora of clever ways.

Put the pedal to the metal and add a little bit of luxe to your wedding with metallic details. Rose gold and copper décor, stationery, cutlery and tableware are leading the charge, fusing fashion-forward style with an elegant edge.

No longer the domain of dance moms everywhere, sequins have made a comeback in an unexpectedly subtle way. Sequinned linen and table runners add a touch of lustre and reflect lighting beautifully. For a more pared-back, elegant look seek out matte or semi-matte sequin details. We love how this silver sequinned runner picks up the colour of the sunset! #swoon
The Love Seat
Step aside floral feature walls and floating frames, there’s a new selfie hero on the block. The feature seat creates an utterly #instaworthy styled spot at your wedding for both beautiful portraits and snap happy guests. We love lavish peacock chairs dressed with masses of blooms, matching Mr & Mrs seats and luxe outdoor lounge areas.
Foraged & Found
With inspiration coming from nature and its abundance, it’s no surprise that stylists are looking to the natural elements for inspiration. Incorporate some oh-so-fresh organic materials in your celebration for a look that’s effortless and utterly unique. Be it wooden signage, gathered pebbles or foraged florals.

Super Styled Sweets & Drinks
The freshest cocktails and desserts are now finished with much more than a cherry on top. Coconuts are filled with delightful concoctions and stacked high with fresh fruit, cakes topped with drippy ganache feature a riot of fanciful sweets and ice cream cones come complete with fairy floss, toasted marshmallows and popping candy.
