Beth Stretton from Megan & Claude tells us the latest styling trends
Beth Stretton from Megan & Claude tells us her top styling tips.
“Perhaps the biggest trend for 2022, partly due to everyone being cooped up during the pandemic, is the great outdoors. We are seeing couples get more adventurous with their locations and wanting to be free of walls and surrounded by nature.
“Fun is definitely on everyone’s post-pandemic agenda, and both adults and children can enjoy giant garden games during a wedding. It’s something we see returned to again and again during the day.
“On the other end is a cleaner, more minimalistic table. This sees a return of the crisp white tablecloth and greenery in brighter and finer form than the eucalyptus of the past few years. This look is often paired with glass cylinders and floating candles.
“There have been some great events recently which have brought nature to their tables, and I see this trend continuing into 2022. One highlight was a recent event where everything was themed with lemons and limes. It worked brilliantly, gave a Mediterranean feel to a summer wedding and made the day brighter for everyone. We are working on a wedding in winter 2022, at which woodland animals feature heavily – forming table décor and the table plan itself.
“I think the recent trend towards copper and rose-gold has arisen due to the current colour fashions. It fits with warm colours like yellows, burnt oranges and peaches. Paired with rich cream linen and a copper cutlery set is wonderfully classy.
“Disco is going to be big! Disco music, disco balls and disco themes. Our silver ball ceilings are becoming a regular feature that adds something to a marquee or blank canvas barn.
“The grazing table was just becoming a big deal when the pandemic hit. Since then, weddings have not been able to indulge the trend because sharing food was very much off the menu. In a post- pandemic world, we see this making a big return, and so we have developed our table toppers to allow everyone to tuck in!"
