Rustic vibe ruled the bridal scene for the past two years and if there is any doubt that this trend is here to stay, the domination of eco-friendly glam photos on Pinterest offers clear proof that burlap charm is still shaping up to be next year’s definitive wedding statement. The rise in Instagram hashtags related to neutral tones, nature-inspired themes and ultra-feminine design palettes contributed to this claim also. As it appears, it seems that we are bound to see less and less shabby-chic touches and jute-infused wedding fashion is going to take an extra glamorous direction.

If this is your wedding theme, an infallible formula that will absolutely set the rustic chic mood right from the start is finding the perfect balance of undone effortlessness and understated finish. Take note of this before buying your table linens and selecting your wedding venue. Also, do not overlook the fact that to expose burlap’s unaffected beauty, picking the right accents will be necessary. We’ve seen the epic successes of burlap and lace, burlap and beach, burlap and retro-charm made possible by the sweet tandem of burlap table runners and sashes. As a 2016 bride, you’d love to take an all-new path or one that is rarely taken—the elegant route.

For 2016 Weddings, the forecast revolves around Blush sharing the stage with Navy Blue. Gray is also one of the special mentions in the color department while burlap will still remain as a popular reception table accent. But whichever shade you choose, the key ingredient lies not in volume but in how every detail carries the concept that you’ve envisioned for your wedding. The main theme, no one shall forget, is the celebration of your union.
