It’s the most wonderful time of the year again – not the holiday season, but wedding season! This is the time when wedding planning shifts into high gear as brides and grooms prepare to throw the most important party of their lives. Of course, with planning comes hours and hours of research into the latest and greatest wedding trends of the year.
Whether recent wedding trends provide a complete blueprint or simply hints of inspiration, you’re certain to see commonalities in colours, themes, fashion and food throughout winter, spring, summer and fall. So let’s take a look at some of our favourite wedding trends of 2015.
Despite the proliferation of digital everything in our modern lives, when it comes to wedding planning, paper invitations still reign supreme. Whether they’re intricately laser cut invitation suites, custom designed printables or completely DIY, this year’s trendiest invites are attention-getting and intensely personal. Look for custom monograms, vibrant embellishments and lots of colour! Brides are also finding new ways to incorporate several elements of their gown into their stationary, which greatly increases the assortment of paper options.
This year, look to Frozen and Downton Abbey inspired weddings and vibrant bursts of colour to take centre stage among some of the hottest wedding theme trends of 2015.
Frozen – Poised to become this winter’s most sought-after wedding look, look for brides to reveal their inner Elsa with elegant, snowy motifs of ice blue, silver and winter white. As far as fashion and beauty are concerned, be on the lookout for dramatically flowing gowns, loads of crystal embellishment and shoulder warming faux fur capes, along with long, romantic tresses and dramatic makeup.
Downton Abby – You’ll see the British influence in many aspects of 2015’s weddings, but it will be most personified in the overarching vibe of the day. You will likely see a number of garden weddings and tea party-like events with tables set up outdoors, in venues that are lush with vibrant English roses, hydrangeas and other classic romantic blooms. In terms of bridal fashion, you can expect to the soft romance of the period, featuring delicate lace gowns, creamy pearl jewelry, and muted pastels.
Colour – Speaking of colour, this year, vibrant hues are hot, hot, hot! From refreshing combinations like watermelon pink and soft lemon to the deep, red richness of Pantone’s colour of the year – Marsala, which when coupled with soft pinks, earthy greens and grays, or even metallic colours is certain to take fall of 2015 by storm.
