25 Jan Hottest 2015 Wedding Trends
I still can’t believe 2014 is over – and what a wonderful year it’s been in the wedding world! Wedding Wire, one of the most trusted and go-to wedding sites out there, spent some time recently looking back at 2014 and also looking ahead at the wedding trends they think will be big in 2015.
Here’s hoping these ideas will help my fellow wedding professionals prepare for all of those newly-engaged 2015 couples coming our way very soon!
From table runners to decorative wreaths, garlands, and more, they’re seeing greenery emerge from the sidelines and into the spotlight. It’s versatile, and provides an Old World look that’s so chic right now. In this same vein, they’re betting on animal topiaries becoming a hot decor item in the New Year.
Miniature Wedding Cakes
Instead of or in addition to featuring a multi-tiered wedding cake, couples are also serving several smaller cakes to offer a wide variety of flavors. They’ve even seen a cake displayed on each reception table for an extra-sweet touch.
The intricate patterns on these paper goods provide such visual interest – and depending on the style and color scheme, they can be used for a variety of wedding styles.
Wedding Wire absolutely loves the look of handwritten calligraphy, whether it’s addressing envelopes or on the actual invitation itself. Recently, they’ve been seeing a variety of modern styles that still feel elegant and sophisticated, but have an added sense of fun and whimsy as well.
Rose Gold Jewelry
Lauren Conrad’s engagement ring and wedding band are to blame for starting this trend. The blush-colored metal feels both feminine and modern, and it was oh-so-hot at the JCK show in Las Vegas this year. Look for it on a ring finger near you in 2015!
Daring Wedding Dresses
Skin is in! At New York Bridal Fashion Week this October, jaws were dropping as these sexy gowns sashayed down the runway. While over the past few years (post-Royal Wedding), Wedding Wire has seen an abundance of dresses with lots of coverage, things are likely going to take a turn toward the skin-baring in 2015.
Blue Men’s Attire
While the classic black tuxedo will never go out of style (and gray and khaki suits are also wedding staples), blue is the new hot color for men’s attire. Navy is a subtle twist on basic black, while going royal blue is fashion-forward and modern.
While the Pantone color of the year was recently announced to be Marsala (a reddish-brown hue), the buzz in the industry is that copper is the color for wedding palettes in 2015. This is in line with the metallic trend that was so big in 2014, but they particularly love this rich hue as either a focal or accent color.
Wedding Wire has already started to see this feather-like flower everywhere this year, and expect to see even more of it in 2015. They’ve seen it solo or as an accent in bouquets, and love the variety of hues – deep red, light purple, pink, and white.
(Temporary!) Tattoo Favors
Sure, it’s a little edgy but temporary tattoos, customized with the couple’s names and wedding date, are the new hot wedding favor. They’re definitely for the more modern couple at a more low-key wedding, but they sure are fun!
What a bright idea! Whether they’re spelling out words like “Love” or the couple’s names, these vintage-style marquee lights are popping up all over reception décor.
Keeping Guests Informed Via Apps
Having a wedding website is a given nowadays, but couples are going one step further by connecting their wedding websites with an app (like WedSocial) to provide their guests with information and photo-sharing capabilities while on the go!
Sparkly Brooches and Barrettes
Another trend “borrowed” from Lauren Conrad’s wedding. Fastening the veil with a glittering brooch or barrette in front is a vintage-glam look we love.
Loose and Romantic Updos
Bridal updos are becoming less structured, for a loose and romantic look. Sideswept updos are the hairstyle of the moment, and Wedding Wire is looking for that to continue into the new year.
“Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran
This tune is their pick for the top first dance song for 2015.
