Wedding trends are changing fast in the Kenyan wedding scene. Here are some of the hottest trends in the wedding industry.
Creative Wedding Photography
Who would have thought that Kenyan couples would opt for road-side wedding photos instead of the conventional garden photography? Most Couples are opting for unique customized wedding photography sessions to commemorate their wedding in style. Couples opt for costumes such as the Masquerade during their photo sessions, funky locations, ‘trash the dress’ and the fast-catching ‘cherish-the-dress’ photography. Engagement shoots are also catching on as more couples want to share their “how me met” and engagement story with the World.
When you can’t make up your mind about the best theme color to pick, you can always choose 2 or more colors. These colors do not necessarily have to be the convectional matching colors but through proper styling and great décor, the color combination will come out great. Some popular color blocking themes are: blue and red; red and peach; peacock theme and even varying shades of the same color on one dress or on different dresses for your bridal Party.
This time-tested fabric has made a comeback. Delicate yet very elegant, Lace is very forgiving and can work on almost any body type. It can be incorporated on a dress to cover necklines, short hemlines and even chubby arms for the conscious bride.
We have seen brides and bridesmaids opting for peplum designs on their outfits. This design makes the dress fashionable and wearable even after the wedding.
Use of custom lighting, a variety of flower options, draping and the new Marquee tents that allow you to host a large number of guests for your wedding, are some of the hottest trends for weddings in Kenya today. Every bride wants something unique and décor is a sure way to have tongues waggling during and after the wedding.
These elegant Italian-design chairs are also known as “Tiffany Chairs.” They are lightweight chairs that add extra pizzazz to your wedding giving it an air of elegance and chic style not seen in other weddings.
African Wedding themes
Some of the hottest and trendiest weddings are incorporating an African touch. Be it the prominent Clay Pot cakes, African print on the wedding cake or African linen on the chairs and tables, an African touch can accentuate your wedding and give it that zing and gist that would otherwise be missing.
We are seeing more Kenyan couples opting to have garden weddings; both the church ceremony and reception taking place away from the traditional church grounds. This not only gives you great views of natural scenery but it also allows for great pictures of the wedding.
Wedding Gifts Registry
As unconventional as it sounds, modern day couples are opting out of the normal way of random gifts brought by guests to the wedding. Couples attach their list of required items in form of a wedding registry and send this alongside their invitations.
Want your guests to have an unforgettable experience at your wedding? Give away wedding favors. These can be edible favors such as chocolate or practical items for keepsakes such as key rings or even mugs with a photo of the wedded couple.
