What are the top styling themes of this year? A renowned Sydney wedding planner who has brought to life the beautiful weddings of the likes of Australian personalities Ada Nicodemou, and Guy Sebastian – Anthony Del Col gives us the lowdown of what the top three wedding themes are for the 2013/2014 wedding season.
Black and White
Choose either black or white as the main tone for the styling, think flowing white draping and pristine white tablecloths, with white flowers to add adds softness and romance to the whole look and keep in with the light-hued theme. While other bridal decorative features like black chairs and dark wall features lend drama to the overall look, you can add on splash of colour to light fixtures, chandeliers and table settings. The end result with be sophistication-central. Black accompanied with white always is – it’s fail-safe.
An all white wedding theme can give an air of serenity, whimsy, and can be a thing of beauty to behold on your special day. Go classic, vintage, or modern and/or contemporary – it all comes down to how the elements are put together. Incorporating stunning clear vases with a variety of white flowers adds a truly breathtaking look to all that white space. The all-white wedding is making a large comeback with brides, likely as more couples want their wedding theme to reflect their style of living: simple, uncluttered, pared down, classic… and ultimately timeless.
Splashes of colour
The new modern bride loves colour. I often ask the bride and groom to pick four colours from a colour palette, and I incorporate these choices within elements of the styling, such as the flowers, wine goblets and table settings. As this theme is bright and summery, it is often used for outdoor weddings, tea party-style weddings, or for a bride who wants that wow factor when her guests walk into the room. And who doesn’t?
These themes will be in display at this year’s Ultimate Wedding Planning Party on May 8, Sydney Opera House.
Anthony Del Col says: “I truly look forward to explaining these three top themes, incorporating the event’s theme for the year: classic and vintage. I will also be sharing my top wedding planning tips and tricks, based on 15 years experience styling dream weddings”.

Ms Gingham says: Interesting trends that are coming our way. It’s still worth noting that your wedding should reflect who you are, so think about incorporating trends rather than following them religiously!
