Recently announced the winners of the Belief Awards 7th edition. Now it is time to check out the hottest trends from these weddings and get inspired!

All white decor and flowered dance floor

For this wedding in El Salvador, the wedding planner Belen Esquivel transformed an entire ballroom at the hotel. “We designed a white floor custom made for this wedding to make an all white atmosphere, covering the hotel’s rug. This was the biggest challenge. The bride wanted all magical, so we even designed and made just for her special linens in mesh and 3D appliqués. We even designed a dance floor with flowers inside”, explains the wedding planner Belen Esquivel.

Rosé gold wedding

On this Mexican wedding, the bride’s favorite color is rosé gold. So, the wedding’s color palette was rosé gold, silver & dark gray. “Definitely, this bride is a trend maker because here in Mexico we still don’t have lots of things of that color, so basically she created everything. The flower art was vital in this wedding to create the concept, very sober, elegant, luxury and stylish”, says Cecilia Pineda Rosas.

Relax and enjoy the nature!

Trudy and Brandt Collings are originally from Florida, but their love for plants and their medicine has taken them to California. Costa Rica was the perfect place for them to get married with all this yoga, surf, nature and laid-back feeling. “The concept came from a lot of different traditions together to make one, earth-centered and spiritual, remaining non-religious. It was meant to be bold and colorful, inspired by Hindu, Buddhist, and plant medicine traditions”, tells the wedding planner Marianne Fischel.

Another wedding that it was meant to enjoy the nature was the one planned by Ruby Rodriguez, in Ecuador. The wedding was designed in a totally relaxed concept, away from a traditional wedding. The bride and the groom wanted their guests to enjoy a warm, cozy and at the same time very fresh atmosphere. “For this reason, the wedding took place outdoors. To achieve this goal in the decoration, they used elements such as string lights, lots of wood, fresh natural drinks and custom details with the rustic chic style. The chosen colors were the green the white and the blue”, explains Ruby Rodriguez.

Nature was also important for this Brazilian couple who decided to get married on the beach. “The couple chose this place because they wanted to spend all the weekend together with family and friends. The weekend started on Friday with a luau on the beach, the wedding itself on Saturday and a brunch on Sunday. Also, because it’s a very quiet beach, and really beautiful”, affirms the wedding planner Samantha Cooley.

Rustic chic is still a thing!

Just like the wedding planned by Ruby Rodriguez in Ecuador, this wedding in Portugal, planned by Viktoriia Ignateva, was also using the “rustic chic” appeal.  “The main idea came from the Rustic chic. One of the most important and even crucial elements turned out to be the wedding bouquet. The objective in some ways was to reproduce the old master paintings using David Austin roses”, says Viktoriia.
