Now that the new year has begun and the first of bridal shows are behind us, we are now in full swing wedding planning. It has been so fun elaborating on my couples' ideas and visiting vendors with them. I can never get my fill of cake and flowers! We are already seeing lots of the 2015 trends taking shape. We've done our homework and sourced several articles listing out the top wedding trends for 2015 so we've taken a snippet from their list and divulge them to you here.
1. Beautiful Blooms: English roses, ￼peonies, hydrangeas, dahlias and ranunculus continue to be go-to favorites among brides. They're dramatic, they're romantic and they're versatile, so they look perfect whether you're planning a traditional affair or something more relaxed. Plus they come in multiple colors for you to pick from so your petals match your wedding theme perfectly!
2. Sips Served: Deciding on drinks to serve at your wedding can often be challenging. You want to have a variety of beverages for your guests to choose from, but you also want to be budget conscious and not break the bank. For 2015 we're seeing more and more wedding bars serving flights of craft beer; shots of different bourbons; wine samplings; sangria that goes from white to pink to deep red; or even a lemonade or fizzy soda bar, couples are letting guests sample an array of sips. These types of different drink stations are yet another way to let guests peek into your personal tastes, with the added bonus of helping you keep your bar budget in check.
3. Styled bands: When it comes to your wedding reception after the dances are done, dinner has been served and the cake has been cut, it's time to cut loose out on the dance floor! And the way that happens is with some awesome music for your guests to groove to. 2015 is reverting back to the decades that made their mark in music!! Motown and blues are flooding the wedding music scene in full force. Most of these style bands dress in period garb, are hip, fun, and entertaining. They pump up the jams to get the party going and keep the dance floor always full!!!
So there you have it! A glimpse into what's hot for weddings in 2015. Happy wedding planning!
