Staying Ahead of the Trends
Once your big day rolls around, you don’t want to be worried about whether the styling elements you have chosen are still going to be on trend. I share my top three ways of staying ahead of the trends this wedding season.
With the modern wedding landscape constantly changing, it can be difficult to know what new trend will appear around the corner. Over the last decade of working in the industry, I have acquired little tips and tricks to stay ahead of the trends and make sure the design of my couples’ special day is still stylish and chic by the time they walk down the aisle! With bridal trends forever changing, I have put together my top three tips to stay ahead of the trends and remain inspired to style and create!
Number One | Seek Inspiration from ‘Real Weddings’ Portfolios
Social media is the perfect platform for the newly engaged to explore and discover their own unique style. ‘Real Wedding’ portfolios are commonly shared across Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram. Not only do these visually stunning images capture special moments but also offer insight to what the next big trend could be. Don’t know where to start? We share all our ‘Real Weddings’ as boards on our Pinterest account and share our professional images to our White+White Instagram page.
Number Two | Follow Professional Wedding Accounts
Following experienced wedding planners, suppliers and venues is another way social media can help in discovering what is ‘in’. Professionals in the industry offer a wealth of knowledge and experience around how to predict trends and stay ahead of the game. Our educational platform, The Wedding School, was created for this very reason! The platform provides an exclusive behind the scenes look at all things bridal, tips, tricks and trends. Extending across YouTube, Instagram and Pinterest, The Wedding School is the perfect tool to help you stay ahead in 2020.
Number Three | Join Bridal Groups
It is no surprise that weddings have to be meticulously planned. From the choosing the perfect venue to selecting a gorgeous flower arrangement, the list never seems to end! To help the newly engaged, Facebook and Pinterest bridal groups tend to pop up which help likeminded couples design and create their perfect day. With daily posts seeking inspiration, insight and intellect, social media groups have become one of the most efficient ways to tell what is in style and what to avoid this wedding season.
