We’re a few weeks into 2015 and the majority of our dates are booked up. So what trends to we expect to see at our weddings this year?
While ivory and white will always remain the number one choice of dress for most brides, we are increasingly seeing brides wearing a range of pastel colours, in particular very pale pink and blush, but also silver and mink too. These shades are really flattering, with pinks and blushes perfect for spring and summer weddings and silver and mink shades making gorgeous winter dresses.
Lace is set to continue to be the material of choice for many brides, but we will also see a return to really minimalistic and simple dresses, as well as dresses with dropped waists.
Based on the bridal fashion shows in 2014, we expect to see lots of embellished bridesmaid dresses on show this year and the use of sparkling accessories. Sequins will be big in bridesmaid accessories this year too. One trend prediction that we aren’t too sure of is bridesmaids wearing capes! Some bridal experts are predicting that they will be big for brides and bridesmaids alike, from light and lacy to wintery furs there’s one for everyone.
Nothing will ever replace music at weddings, whether it’s a DJ or a live band. But dancing isn’t for everyone so why not consider an alternative. Last year photobooths were massive; take a step up and hire a video booth for a new twist on a fun trend. If you are feeling brave, combine music and video with a karaoke booth, giving your guests the chance to film a message to you along with snippets of them murdering a song.
Try something completely different with your wedding photography and get shots from every angle imaginable by using drones to capture aerial shots. You’ll get stunning overhead views of your venue and ceremony. Ask your videographers to get in on the action to by bringing along GoPro cameras in addition to their video cameras. These can be attached to a "selfie stick" to get ultra-creative shots of you and your guests on the dance floor.
Last year we saw many of our brides using beautiful loose and unstructured arrangements containing wildflowers and soft colours. This trend is set to continue this year, along with the use of monochrome roses, peonies and delicate posies for brides wanting to keep their bouquets simple.
We won’t just see flowers in bouquets and in table arrangements. Last year we saw an increase in brides wearing beautiful floral crowns and predict it will continue into 2015. These can be made from pretty delicate flowers or a fuller crown of roses and hydrangeas, depending on their overall wedding style these can be made.
