First-look wedding photography is the thing now. More than just a wedding photography trend, the first-look is actually the most intimate thing a couple can have during a wedding. Raw emotions can be captured when the groom and bride take a first look at each other on their big day: some may cry, some may get really excited.

Regardless of the reaction, it’s something you definitely want to cherish and remember for the rest of your lives.

More and more brides prefer bouquets made from flowers with soft colours. Think dusty pink, off-white, beige, and baby green. Colours like these make the event look more romantic and relaxed. Have an experienced florist pick out some nice shades for your bouquet. 

Get the dress off your shoulders

Girls, it’s the year of the off-shoulder gowns. This dressing style is elegant and seductive, at the same time not showing too much skin. The off-shoulder gown is reminiscent of some old world charm, easily transforming you into a queen.

After all, you’re the star of the day and you deserve all the attention.

Mix and match

Gone are the days when the bridesmaids and groomsmen don uniforms. You know what we mean, bridesmaids wearing identical dresses, and groomsmen wearing suits of the same colour. If that’s not boring, we don’t know what is.

Set a theme and allow your girls and bros to pick an outfit colour or cutting that best suits them. It looks much better in photos, and your mates will thank you for this too!

Handwritten wedding cards

Hold on, don’t panic. This doesn’t mean that you need to create each of your invitation cards by hand. Just pick an invitation card design that uses handwritten font. You can write the names of the guests by hand if you like (we highly recommend you do so).

There’s a sense of originality and sincerity in handwritten cards that capture guests’ attention. They look much nicer and trendy too!

Keep the cakes tall

Tall cakes have always been a favourite. The tiered one is not only an aesthetic trend, it’s very practical as well. How are you going to feed all your guests if you get a normal-sized cake?

Let your cake stand tall and pretty. It looks great on photo and there’s plenty to go around for your guests as well.

Planning a wedding isn’t easy – some couples take up to one year to get ready for the big day, both mentally and logistically! It’s best to start planning soon if you’re thinking of getting hitched this year. Kaodim has a range of wedding services available for your big day, from wedding photography to wedding catering and card printing and design.
