Billed as the nation’s coolest wedding fair, Most Curious returns to London and Norwich in the spring. With over 120 exhibitors, the fair plays host to great design, fashion and lifestyle inspiration for your special day. Not only can you enjoy a day of wedding window shopping, but you’ll also get a chance to sample tempting street food, craft beers and live music. 

Luckily for those who can’t wait until the spring, Most Curious founder Rebecca has given us a sneak preview of what to expect from this year’s extravaganza…

“Our 2016 campaign represents the current trends across lifestyle and bridal, because that is what the show is all about,” says Rebecca.

“The bride in our new 2016 photoshoot represents boho-luxe bridal style, because bohemian dresses are now being mixed with some embellishments and sequins to give them a glamorous edge.”

“Fashion in 2016 will definitely be filled with bridal separates, and other hot trends include the sheer skirt, higher necklines, longer sleeves and plain whites. Jumpsuits are also making a name for themselves in the wedding industry, for those who are really looking for a cool edge to their outfit. 

“Colourblocking is the new cake craze on the wedding scene these days, but the ‘drip’ trend is taking over and gives your dessert extra opulence plus the fun factor.”

“For stationery and decor trends, the geometric elements are taking centre stage, with many opting for clean, slick and minimal styles. Walls of wedding venues are becoming focal points, with tasselled wall hangings, flower baskets, plants and typography decorating the space. Flashes of gold, silver and copper metallics are also proving popular, which you can carry through from your stationery to cake and even shoes.”
