Our Dorset weddings this year have been influenced by the events of 2020, with many postponed weddings now back on track, you're more than ready to celebrate and here's the trends we've spotted...

1. Marry now, party later.
A popular choice, and one that we LOVE! Some of our brides have rescheduled their big day up to three times, meaning intimate ceremonies have gone ahead as soon as possible, with a big party planned later in the year.
A chance to change back into your bridal frock, duplicate some of your flowers and re-live your big day on a bigger scale.
2. The 'Finally' trend
Finally, our couples are able to get married and therefore some lighthearted humour about the delays doesn't go amiss.
From cake toppers, to wedding invites - our brides love adding the word 'finally' to their wedding accessories. Rachel at Contempo Cakes created a beautiful example of this at a May wedding for the lovely Mr & Mrs Holloway (Finally!)
From Pinterest to Instagram, our brides are SO creative, which doesn't stop at table decor. From working in odd numbers, to colour matched taper candles and subtle flower accents with foliage, our brides are venturing beyond classic centrepieces and we love working with suppliers to achieve these looks!
Smaller audiences, with a bigger appreciation. Our couples love discussing their grand ideas for their big day, but there is definitely a sense of gratitude for having family and friends all in one room which takes first place!
Doughnut walls, doughnut cakes, doughnuts stands. You LOVE them and quite frankly, we find it incredibly hard to step away from the Krispy Kremes during set ups!
7. Rainbow Roses
A theme and flower which represents the LGBTQIA+ community, beautifully. Many of our couples opt for this colourful choice. Although the Rainbow dyes are not always recommended against fabrics, their meaning and vividness make it all worthwhile.
