On Trend: The Low-Key Wedding

Brides and grooms are opting for a more laid back approach when it comes to saying their vows, going for a more relaxed occasion with fewer guests and less formality. Embracing this wedding style means that the costs are less and there is more focus on the details that are important to each couple.

The flowers

Pick a minimal look, focusing on one colour or flower. For example, focus on only having greenery with maybe one pop of colour, or have a simple bunch of daisies instead of a full bouquet.


The Dresses

No one wants to be uncomfortable on the day of the wedding, especially the bride or bridesmaids, so why not let them choose their own dresses. Giving them a colour theme allows for the dresses picked to suit their own style and flatter each body type as needed.

The Cake

Opt for a one-tiered cake. Who says the wedding cake has to be a 5 tiered extravaganza? Or if cakes aren’t your choice of dessert go for a doughnut wall or chocolate fountain, these are both fun and delicious alternatives!

The Food

Wanting to embrace the idea of comfort at your laid back wedding? Choose comfort food, especially in winter, grab a blanket and snuggle up with the catering vans’ gnocchi in hand. Food vans are a good choice for the more laid back wedding, they can go wherever you may want your reception; whether it’s under the wedding tree or in our gorgeous back garden.

The Décor

Glass jar vases make for an easy decorative choice, they are not hard to find and can make for sweet keepsakes for the guests after the wedding. However, if you’re wanting an easy option, simply sitting underneath the chandelier is enough of a decorative touch!


Mismatched seats or picnic blankets are perfect if you’re opting for an outdoor reception – they embrace the boho theme that is on trend at the moment. Laid back, smaller weddings mean that everyone can fit onto one long table if need be, so why not share the love and sit amongst your nearest and dearest?
