The holidays are a time for lots of love, family, & of course, engagements! My facebook feed was lit up with tons of recent engagements over the past month or two, so I’ll help all of you soon to be brides out with some of the top Wedding Trends of 2015 with ideas from Anja Winikka (site director of The Knot). I also included some of my favorite Wedding Day looks from my own special day.
“I DO” to 8 Wedding Trends for 2015
1. Pantone’s Marsala
Pantone announced Marsala, a deep red/wine as their Color of the Year. This rich tone is popping up in weddings all over from the bridesmaids dresses, to the table decor, lipstick, and invitations.
2. Advancements in photos and videos
Photographers and Wedding Guests are taking advantage of the tech advancements in photos and videos with Drones, Go-Pros, Hashtags, and Selfie Sticks.
3. Wild West Weddings
Rustic ranches, mugs, and leather accents.
4. Peace & Love
Many weddings are inspired by music festivals with romantic moods and earthy settings.
5. Modern Brides
Jumpsuits and Separates are expected to be a trend with brides instead of the traditional dress, as celebrities like Olivia Palermo and Solange Knowles chose.
6. Unique Venues
Many couples are choosing to skip the traditional church or catering hall and find unexpected venues. “Museums, Castles, or even Caves are becoming popular.”
7. Emphasis on the Food
Many people’s favorite part of the wedding is becoming the most planned – “beer gardens, doughnut dessert walls, and hanging salad stations” are just a few mentioned as a trend for this year.
8. Bridesmaid’s duties covered – with technology!
There are so many apps that can help with to do lists (TaskRabbit) or planning rides to and from the venues (Uber).
