2015 is an interesting year so far with regards to wedding trends and wedding themes and styles. The overriding style trend this year is personalisation.
Couples getting married are more focused on creating weddings that reflect who they are as a couple. This wedding trend has carried across all aspects of wedding planning and it’s been an exciting journey seeing all the beautiful weddings that have taken place so far.
We have scoured the Internet and selected the top wedding trends for you:
Wedding dresses are different colours based on the brides individual colour palette. Many brides are opting to follow the vintage trend of long sleeved lace dresses with illusion backs or the more modern trend of hand-painted water colour florals. Of course, you could never go wrong in a breath-taking Vera Wang either!
It’s refreshing to see so many different dress styles and colours this year!
Wedding couples are choosing to reflect who they are through their wedding theme and the main wedding themes so far this year are rustic, vintage, whimsical, garden or elegant. Bridal couples are then adding their own flair to these wedding themes with their own personal preferences like tasting stations, mini desserts, craft beer tasting stations, champagne tasting bars or surprise foods served that the couples love and would like to share with their guests!
Brides and grooms are opting for treats such as their favourite mini desserts, cheese platters, olive oil tasting stations, champagne tasting bars or unexpected menu options to surprise their guests and to let guests understand and share their personal preferences as a couple.
Guest Lounge Areas
Many couples have added guest lounge areas for friends and family to mingle creating a more intimate and personal environment for their wedding reception.
Family Style Seating
Bridal couples are opting for long, banquet style seating adding a more family friendly feel to their wedding celebrations. This family style seating also lends itself to guests being able to move around and is perfect for food tasting stations.
A key trend this year is greenery suspended over tables, wreaths and garland greenery or floral table runners. Brides are also opting for wedding bouquets that are organic and loose. Seating displays are romantic featuring beautiful greenery or loosely tied floral designs.
Calligraphy and Water Colours
The art of Calligraphy is back and many bridal couples are choosing to have hand-written wedding invitations sent to their guests! This theme is also prevalent with wedding couples commissioning artists to hand-paint a unique water colour pattern for use on all their wedding stationary and even in some cases on their wedding cakes.
Bridesmaid dresses are neutral shades with a touch of sparkle or metallic in colour with sequins! We personally love this trend and look forward to seeing these beautiful bridesmaid dresses every Monday morning!
Hot Wedding Colour Trend - Copper
Another key wedding trend is silver is replaced with copper – look out for more warm colour palettes this winter with tones of copper, marsala and natural wood undertones for rustic and vintage wedding decorations.
