If you are planning on celebrating the most important day in your lives in 2018, then some of the trends to watch out for are making comebacks from yesteryear. Last year saw a lot of rustic and contemporary themes making the headlines. This year though wedding planners and designers predict a comeback of the classic, dramatic and over-the-top floral décor for all seasons.
One of the key trends expected to make a statement this year is the return of bright colours and elaborate floral arrangements. Staying on from last year is also the naked greenery décor. More and more brides (and grooms!) are also choosing wood pallets, vintage ornaments and recyclable material for their décor. These trends are perfect for every type of wedding, from traditional celebrations to more casual parties.
Freshly cut foliage and transforming aisles into garden beds creates the quintessential English garden which is a dream right out of a Disney fairytale. Couples are also looking at shorter ceremonies and longer after-parties that allow them to literally let their hair down and enjoy their special day. Wedding planners have also predicted color palettes to take a turn towards shades of purples, including wine, lilac, lavender, and mauve.
Regardless of what trend you choose to follow, or even if you choose to break away and create your own, one place in Colombo allows you to truly live out your perfect wedding. Surrounded by tranquil water ways beautified by the exotic water lilies that bloom in the sunshine Waters Edge is a property ranked among the most sought after dream wedding destinations in the country.
Specifically picked for its multitude of outdoor locations Waters Edge boasts the Grand Lawn, and several smaller garden locations. The luscious green lawns can be converted to vintage gardens, a forest full of greenery, a lakefront pier or any setting you set your mind to. Apart from the wedding ceremony itself, these venues can also be used for pre and post wedding celebrations like bridal showers and bachelor/bachelorette parties, and home comings as well. With multiple seating options, an event of any size is not a problem for Waters Edge.
