Get ready for another whimsical wedding season ahead – crystal cakes, donut walls, DIY tattoo corners and all. Wedding stylist Vicky C. of The Theme Wedding weighs in on the hottest trends.
Who doesn’t love a fresh mimosa? After years of over-complicated concoctions, couples are turning back to this crowd- pleasing cocktail with make- your-own mimosa bars and slight twists on the classic.
Another super-sweet trend is donuts – ready-made spreads and DIY tables, where guests can decorate their favourite fried treats with frosting, sprinkles
and the like. It’s equal parts delicious and interact.
Couples are finding new ways to make their day memorable – including temporary tattoo corners. A fun touch for any reception, tattoos can be custom-designed to reflect your wedding’s colours and theme.
Calligraphy, last year’s big trend, is appearing alongside unconventional patterns, like marble. These swirling styles will lend an instant sophistication to any invite.
GEODES IN VOGUE
If crystals catch your eye, then these cakes will steal your heart. The “geode” themed cake is in high gear this season, with towering desserts designed to resemble all your favourite minerals with a funky depth effect and, in some cases, glitzy gold foil. These cakes are almost too pretty to eat.

If you’re a low-key bride who’s into mixology, the new Kwoon canned cocktails might be up your alley. Made by the bartenders at The Woods mixology bar in Central, these convenient mixed drinks mean you can enjoy a fresh tipple no matter where your wedding takes place – on a boat, on a beach, or on a campground. Expect a few signature concoctions from The Woods menu, like the High Tea (gin and chrysanthemum) or the dark rum and ginger Madam Ching. Ask about the customisation option, which allows you to cover the cans in personalised messages, wedding colours or meaningful artwork.
