TRENDY MOOD BOARDS FROM THE PAST
Wedding trends are changing every season. But some trends are simply evergreen!
Let’s see some of the trendy mood boards from the past and see if they still work today?
Green of the year
Every year wedding trends change and Pantone sets the trend with their colour pick of the year. For 2017, they choose greenery. If you are having a Greek destination wedding, green or greenery can go great with the island style, blue sea and beach weddings. Think of tropical styled wedding with cacti and lush greenery ( Check out a real wedding all in Greece in the Summer2017 issue of Ellwed Magazine ). Or maybe simple and minimal olive green wedding? It can’t get more Greek than that! Check images of simple chic olive green wedding on our blog. Use fruits like green apple or lime, combined with green vegetables and Greek herbs. Use eucalyptus for that silver hue in the green palette.
Let’s see what fits together

Another popular choice for 2017 and still going very strong is blush pink. From dusty greys and blues, brides are moving more and more towards blush pinks which are great for rural nature of certain islands and locations around Greece. Think of countryside chic weddings with that riviera or rustic chic look and feel. Get seduced by romantic extravagance and old style royal luxury. Imagine blush pink wedding dresses and boho chic dreamy beach weddings. Or the luxe and minimal blush pink Santorini wedding. Get inspired by this one!

This colour trend is all the more popular amongst weddings and parties. Be brave and go all out. Mix all bright and strong colours together. Think of fiesta summer party with bright red, yellow, orange, green, fuchsia, and bold pink. Greece is the country of Bougainvillea flowers that come in all these strong and bold colours. Make a statement and enjoy your event in the sea of colour! Check our colourful Indian wedding or bold pink boho romance in our Summer2017 issue. Get inspired by this Urban Eclectic love affair from the centre of Athens on our blog!

Add-ons and all that shines
in 2019, shiny accents are still all the rage. Décor that rocks, think of black, metal, marble, gold, pink gold and copper accents to your wedding style. This and next year will be all about silver! Greece is the county of marble, so marble won’t be difficult to find. Combine marble, blush, gold and black. Or blush pink with black and some gold tones to bring out the sparkle of your event. Think of geometric shapes, hanging décor and geometric walls for your ceremony. Invite metal objects, use them as centrepieces or just as side décor of your display tables. If you want to stay ahead of trends in 2020, play around with mirrors and silver surfaces. See some of the gold accents in this styled wedding inspiration.
Having that said, we think that the new trend, which is here to stay is that there is no rules! Go whichever style or route you wish! Anything goes! Forget the rules and follow your heart… or hearts, as it is important to also listen to your partner 🙂 If you are planning your wedding now, remember that this is the season of Wedding Fairs! Bridal Expo is hamming on 11-13th of January 2020 if you are planning to be in Athens, come and meet us there!
