Vibrant colors

Weddings have in the past been themed with elegant and minimalistic colors and themes with the use of a lot of matching colors and aesthetics. Many weddings are now choosing to be creative and try a wild mix of colors whether it is with wild patterns, statement floral arrangements, or clashing colors. People are experimenting and trying unconventional colors and themes at weddings. Say goodbye to normal rustic tones and hello to bright colors!

Mismatched bridesmaid dresses
With the incoming of bright colors, also comes the idea to have bridesmaids wear mismatched dresses. Bridesmaids would commonly all wear the same dress in the same color. Nowadays, brides are letting their bridesmaids wear different dresses or different colors. You would wear the same dress in different colors or different dresses in the same color! You could even be daring enough to have your bridesmaids wear mismatching patterns and cuts. There is more freedom for bridesmaids can wear and it is best to choose a dress for each bridesmaid based on their individual style and personality.

Candid wedding photos
Wedding photos are usually curated with poses and angles being planned and framed. A new trend is to include candid wedding photos among planned romantic poses. Couples are no longer expecting all their wedding photos to be perfect but instead to authentically capture the moments of their wedding day.

Film camera photos

With the surge in candid wedding photos also comes the continued use of film cameras at weddings. Having a film camera is a cheap and fun option. It means that guests themselves can pick up the camera and capture moments from the day.
