Stay on trend with purple wedding napkins
Hotel owners who add to their revenue by renting out the space for weddings could help to ease the strain on couple by offering them some advice on what decor to choose for the reception that is sure to be on-trend.
Indeed, when it comes to planning the table decor, hotel staff could be a particular help by drawing on their own experience, while in terms of emerging trends, purple wedding napkins look set to be popular.
Elizabeth King, the wedding planner at Creative Wedding Planning, said: "Table settings are done in a very different way, depending on the person and whether they want traditional or contemporary. Purple is a really big one though, with lots of glassware on tables and candelabras as well."
She added that tall table displays also look to be "very fashionable", although putting feathers in displays may be something that is more popular with younger brides.
In terms of flowers, Ms King revealed that brides are increasingly asking for mixed herbs to be included in displays in order to create a pleasant smell.
Rachel Morgan, editor of Wedding Ideas Magazine, recently revealed that many brides are picking and choosing what they want from a wedding package in order to save money.
