As each new year arrives, more and more new and exciting ideas hit the wedding scene and there’s always some that seriously stand out and get picked up by brides and grooms the world over.


One craze that isn’t going anywhere is the trend to host a destination wedding! According to a report from The Knot, 24% of couples opted to fly to a faraway shore to say ‘I Do’ in 2013 and last year saw further increases. Hey, if an idyllic Italian destination wedding is good enough for the gorgeous George Clooney, then who are we to disagree?!


So once you’ve decided that a destination day is for you and your beau, the fun and creative part of your planning can begin!

Destination days


According to a report published in 2013 by LV= travel insurance, one in six married British couples tied the knot abroad in the past five years, which is an increase of almost 20% compared to a decade ago. That’s a whole lot of wanderlust weddings!


Many couples are seeking guaranteed sunshine (or snow), or a more unique wedding experience, others are lured by the temptation of a more cost effective big day, or the appeal of a less complicated and scaled down wedding.

Go social


Social media continues to play a key role in weddings. From planning and inspiration via the plentiful supply of pretty pictures on Pinterest, to creating personalised hashtags for guests to tag their Instagram and Twitter posts, social is here to stay for your big day.


Let guests who can’t make it to your nuptials aware of your wedding hashtag, they can then follow updates and share in the joy of the day as it happens.

You Mean The World To Me

Displaying photographs at your wedding reception is a simple, cost effective way to add personality and a little extra-personal touch. 

If you and your partner have known each other for a long time, show your story through the years in pictures. Ensure you get the cringe-worthy old photos out – your guests will love seeing you back in the day as youngsters. 

A cute idea is to display photos of you and your partner as babies and children – this will get all your aunts cooing! This can be an especially nice touch if you both have siblings, as you can use photos with your brothers and sisters in too, showing the two families which will be uniting on your wedding day.

Display photographs of your parents and your grandparents on their wedding day; a lovely way to celebrate the successful marriages which have come before yours and a lovely excuse for your parents to dig out and look through their old photos and wedding album.

Pay tribute to lost loved ones on your wedding day with a display of their photos.

All of these ideas are also a great way to decorate a hen party, baby shower or a special birthday.

I’ve got the world on a string

Photographs are very light to pack if you’re jetting off for a destination wedding. Simply buy sweet little pegs and string like the ones shown below from stores such as John Lewis or Paperchase and string them up at your reception venue. Be careful where you hang pictures if you are getting married abroad – bright sunlight can damage your photographs.
