If you’re like most engaged couples in the planning stages of your wedding, chances are that you want to plan an event that is unique to your personality as individuals and as a couple. A perfect ceremony and reception is a healthy mix of elegance, magic, and fun for the bride and groom as well as their guests. Some popular trends are making a mark on weddings in 2015, making this perfect mix possible.
Here are some that might fit your taste and personality.
Inspired by hit shows like Sherlock and Downton Abbey, brides and grooms are clamoring for the sophisticated romance of the English countryside. Tables are usually simple and adorned with a vintage lace cloth. The feeling is that of afternoon tea and dining is usually out in the open air in a garden under the afternoon sun.
Popular Blooms and Herbs
English roses, peonies, hydrangeas, and dahlias are a hit this year for centerpieces and arrangements. First off, they’re versatile and they’re hearty. All these flowers can also be romantic and dramatic, so they are perfect for a relaxed ceremony or for fancy affair. Greenery such as rosemary, mint, lemon leaf, magnolia leaf, and ivy is also in demand at ceremonies in 2015.
It’s All About The Dress
A few styles that are making a splash on the runways in 2015, and will no doubt drape brides when they take that march down the aisle. In the Essense of Australia wedding dress galleries, these styles include fun and flirty two-piece gowns and out of the box adornments such as leather and stud embellishments. Some brides are getting bold with a splash of color, while others intricate back detail.
All Buttoned Up
Wedding invitations are getting an upgrade in 2015 as well. Cellophane wrapping, buttons, ribbons, leather rope, and twine are becoming common on invites sent out for rsvp. Crystal studs and freeze-dried flowers are also popping up in mailboxes of potential guests in 2015.
Serving Up Something Special
Another new trend at weddings in 2015 includes the food and drink served to the guests and wedding party. Champagne towers are making a major comeback. A beer garden might just be the right fit for your reception. Not to be outdone, doughnut dessert walls are a big hit as are hanging salad stations. Also, wedding cupcakes in lieu of a wedding cake are a very popular option.
Traditionally, brides and grooms have tied the knot at a church, cathedral, or banquet hall. However, tradition is thrown to the birds in 2015 as couples vie for a much more unique setting. Now museums and castles are being booked for ceremonies and even caves have become a common place to tie the knot this year.
You want your wedding to be special, that goes without saying. What better way to make it special than by thinking out of the box? What makes you and your fiance uniquely you? Embrace those quirks and create a wedding of your dreams. If the trends in 2015 are any indication; anything is possible and new and fresh ideas are just what you need to plan the perfect day that everyone will remember for a lifetime.
