Top Wedding Trends For 2015
Getting married this summer? Still putting the finishing touches to your big day? Our pals at Wedding Ideas magazine have pulled together 5 key trends for couples tying the knot in 2015. Here’s the details you need to make sure your big day is on-trend…
The traditional bridesmaid look of each of your best girls dressing the same is out the window. The new trend for mismatched bridesmaids introduces diversity to your bridal party, not to mention the photos after the big day is over. From different colours and tones of colours to different dress styles, mismatching your bridesmaids gives each girl the chance to show their personality. Try Twobirds Bridesmaid for figure-flattering dresses with numerous ways to wrap and tie them to suit your girls, as well as a huge range of colours to match your theme.
The Rise Of DIY
Getting creative is becoming more and more popular with brides – from making your own bunting and baking your own cake, to doing your own invitations and picking your own flowers, the list goes on. Not only does it make your wedding that little bit more personal to you and your partner, your guests will be super impressed, (and you’ll be pretty proud of yourself, too). But before you get too into your arts and your crafts, you’ve got to remember it can be a big task, and takes time and effort, so don’t drown yourself in DIY. Prioritise, and be patient.
Wedding Cake Alternatives
We know, we know – who doesn’t love cake? But weddings in 2015 are getting a little more creative with their desserts. We’re seeing pies, cupcakes, profiteroles, cheese, and even scones. It looks like 2015 brides have great taste. Whether you haven’t got a sweet tooth or you just wanting something a bit different, Pinterest is one place that is full of original, and delicious, ideas. For those that aren’t ready to ditch the cake, “naked cakes” are a definite hit for weddings this year.
Since we’ve started making your stomachs rumbling, we might as well continue. Food carts and food trucks are a fun way to keep your guests’ hunger at bay during the drinks reception and after. Get your hands on ice cream or burger van. Or, for something a little smaller, but just as cool, places like Talking Tables have tons of amazing food carts and stands for guests to help themselves to – popcorn anyone?
The rise of social media is unmissable these days, so why not incorporate it into weddings? A wedding hashtag is a great way to get all the photos taken by your guests in one place. And it’s all thanks to the creation of the hashtag. Put up a sign of your personalised hashtag, like this one from The Wedding of My Dreams (http://www.theweddingofmydreams.co.uk/), and see all the Twitter, Facebook and Instagram posts come in after your big day. That way you won’t miss any.
