Create the silhouette of your bridal dreams all while staying cool and breezy during those hot summer weddings.
HONEYMOON CLOSE TO HOME

Couples are making the most of exploring their own backyard, with smaller honeymoons spent across the state. We’re blessed with many romantic destinations, from coastal getaways to outback adventures, so
a Queensland nanomoon will not disappoint.
MADE WITH LOVE, AND HAND SANITISER
Getting married during a global pandemic has changed a lot of plans. If you’ve had to DOWNSIZE DUE TO COVID, consider it an opportunity to get creative for a more intimate wedding. Welcome wedding boxes are gaining popularity, giving couples the opportunity to make their guests feel cared for on their big day. Consider it a welcome goodie bag, with a COVID twist. Add hand sanitiser, face masks, as well as the program, menu, and even a take-home favour.
One of the latest trends you’ll see popping up at modern weddings is the prevalence of non-boozy drink options. The rise of low-alcohol and no-alcohol beverages is growing thanks to a younger generation of health-conscious consumers. Alcohol-free beverages are upping their presentation with dried fruit, unexpected herbs and stunning glassware, giving booze-free drinks that extra buzz. Oh, and they’re hangover-free! Cheers to that.
In the modern world of contoured faces and extra-long lashes, going back to natural is refreshingly beautiful. Simple and natural make-up to suit your face is the hottest wedding beauty trend. Let your make-up artist highlight your individual features for a gorgeous ‘barefaced’ look. Opt for earthy colours to enhance your eyes, lips and cheeks and embrace the beauty unique to you.
Flowers and weddings go together like a bride and groom. They are a wedding must-have, and while flowers will always find an important role in a wedding, floral trends are changing. DRIED FLOWERS are massive this season, with warm, earthy tones making the perfect centrepieces. While fresh-cut flowers represent beauty, dried flowers symbolise longevity. Add some immortality to your wedding vibes and go dried. Plus, you’ll be able to keep your wedding day blooms for approximately a year after the special day.
Add a touch of comfort and warmth to your big day with some home styling touches to your wedding decor. Elegant couches dressed in plush pillows make the perfect piece of Insta-worthy furniture. Better yet, place the living room staple outdoors for some unexpected decor drama. Not only do outdoor couches look lush, they’re also the perfect cure for tired feet.
