New trends are constantly surfacing in the wedding world and some past trends are also resurfacing. This spring we will be seeing the return of ribbon streamers!! They will be used not only as a whimsical punch of color to coordinate with the bridal bouquet but also in ceremony and reception décor! We will see anything from delicate lace to vintage velvets and dupioni silks in varieties of sizes, as well as crepe paper! ALSO... feel free to mix them up!! Ribbon streamers with delicate blooms of floral attached will also be a trend. Not only do these whimsical streamers look beautiful blowing in the wind attached to lovely bridal bouquets but also as accent décor on chairs or to add a little flair, but curtains of streamers act as a backdrop for your ceremony (a ribbon tent), desert table and add brilliant color to a rustic venue. We will also see streamers making a huge statement by guests using them to toss as symbols of Congratulations to the bride and groom as they have just been married, calling them “Wish Wands”. It makes for a nice substitute to rice that is no longer used and petals which some venues do not allow. So, when you are considering your wedding décor and floral, don’t forget to add streamers!
