Keep track of wedding trends in 2016

What’s that big, bright orange thing in the sky? Is that the… sun? It’s taken its time but summer is here (well, kind of). And that can only mean one thing. Wedding season! We take a look at some of the trends we could well be seeing this year.

Bespoke Bridesmaids
It was fun, but the days of having one single style for all your bridesmaids may be coming to an end. More and more, brave brides are letting their entourage go with the flow and choose their own dresses, colour and style for your special day. It means every girl is super-comfortable in what they’re wearing – and they can wear the outfit more than once.

But don’t worry about anyone trying to upstage you; they’ll still know who the boss is. Right?

That takes the cake…
Cutting the cake is an important part of the whole wedding experience. Just like coaxing your drunk uncle off the dance floor during the Macarena. But it looks like things are changing…

We’ve seen a boost in couples opting for more cost effective and creative centrepieces. From cupcakes to cheesecake, meringues to macaroons, there are so many alternatives out there. Thing is, will it catch on? The proof is in the pudding.

Foody Favours
Hands up who’s trying to stick to a tight wedding budget? Yup, thought so. A great way to save a few quid – and make your wedding a little more personal – is to give your guests home-cooked wedding favours. Mini pecan pies, homemade fudge, even jars of juicy jam… It shows your guests – and your bank account – that you care.

See you next time!


The Tudor Barn Team

The start of a beautiful friendship at The Tudor Barn, Buckinghamshire

For my wife and I it was love at first sight at The Tudor Barn, Burnham. Not with each other you understand (although after 15 years of marriage we’ve grown quite fond of each other). No, it was love at first sight when we saw the barn. We fell for its rustic Tudor charm, ideal for weddings. Its timber beams dating back to 1505. The grand mezzanine banquet hall. The beautiful established grounds. The wonderful clock tower. We admired it all, albeit from afar.

Then an opportunity came about for us to take over ownership. We jumped in with both feet, head over heels. And here we are, at The Tudor Barn, Burnham. Making people’s dream weddings come true. That’s a lot of responsibility, make no bones about it. But we’re lucky to have an incredible team behind us. An experienced Wedding Coordinator who is in a league of her own, a catering team who deliver tantalising culinary delights, bar staff who are as friendly as they are efficient, and a behind-the-scenes team who help keep the whole place ticking along and looking great… And us two, who want to offer the best wedding venue in Buckinghamshire and make every occasion as magical as possible.

So like the countless couples who will begin their futures together at The Tudor Barn, we begin ours now. We’d love to have you with us.

Speak soon.
