Just when you thought you had seen it all, the wedding world has this crazy way of reinventing itself, and I am definitely a sucker for all things shiny and new (or reinvented), so today I give you 5 trends that are totally rocking my world xox

Colour Pop Hair
OK so not exactly a trend of sorts, but I have been spotting more and more brides rocking colourful do’s on their big day (and everyday). I have been tempted to get myself a candy coloured do more than once lately (hey if granny is allowed to dye her hair purple, why can’t I?), but it is fab to see that bright can still be beautiful, elegant and subtle, and no longer just for the 16 year old punk rockers.
The Sheer & Embellished
When J.Lo stepped out on the red carpet wearing an embellished sexy sheer white gown, I knew that brides around the world would soon catch on to the sexy sheer trend. With a beautiful balance of bling and skin, I am swooning over all the unique beaded and embellished creations that look like a work of art.
Food & Drink Trucks & Caravans
With more and more couples opting to say I do in remote or unique locations, the trusty food truck is back and better than ever. A great way to feed your guests some good tucker or have an on site bar, and that gorgeous white caravan in the 2nd pic is a travelling bar called Waggie available right here in NZ! Popular food trucks in NZ include Lucky Taco, Maldito Mendez, The Food Truck, Dutch Queen, Tag Burger, Roaming Dive and The Fire Truck.
Single Tier Cakes
If you are a bride on a budget or simply like to keep things simple, then a single tier cake is the bees knees. It doesn’t have to be big or expensive to be beautiful, and with a little floral styling and a diy cake stand you can easily turn simple bakery cake into an affordable masterpiece. Need to feed a bunch of guests? Ask a few friends to each make a simple cake so that you have a variety of flavours and designs!
Shoes, glorious shoes! Nothing beats finding a dream pair for your wedding day, and lately I am in love with the more is more concept. Strappy sparkly gladiator numbers to fully enclosed lace shooties (shoe booties) this wedding trend is perfect for winter (the more covered in variety) and will give you a little more support when you strut down that aisle!
