5 wedding trends for 2015
1. The English tea party theme
Perhaps it’s the rise of Downton Abbey or maybe even the global obsession with Kate Middleton, but for whatever reason the English afternoon tea theme is growing ever popular amongst brides and grooms to be. The delicate decorations – vintage bunting, tea lights and floral decorations, and the delicious food – jam scones, high tea etc are proving very popular especially for outdoor weddings or barn weddings.
2. Personality and preference
More and more, people are moving away from the traditional constraints of wedding themes. There is no such thing as cannot or will not. Hotels and receptions are opening up spaces and allowing for photo booths, candy stall trucks and everything in between. Personalised weddings are as popular as ever and are set to get even bigger this year with personalised invites – including invites with photos of the married couple to be, expected to be a huge trend.
3. Let them eat cup cakes
The days of a 3 tier white traditional wedding cake are seemingly in the past and 2015 is set to see a whole new type of wedding cake. Cupcakes have been a popular choice for weddings recently and they are set to become even more popular. But it’s not just cupcakes – couples are also beginning to shy away from traditional desserts and offer instead, an array of desserts and a choice of more modern treats. Cookies, cakes, milkshakes, hot chocolates and cream cakes are replacing the customary pavlova and cheesecake and guests of all ages are set to smile!
4. Reception Art
If you aren’t into the photo booth idea, 2015 is offering great alternative trends. Hiring an onsite silhouette artist is set to become very popular, letting your guest sit for short time and leave your wedding with a great personal memento.
5. Midnight snacks
Serving up a midnight snack is a great idea, especially for those who have an early dinner. You’ll need to refuel your guests to keep them dancing to the early hours and what better way to do this than a food truck? Food trucks are set to become increasingly popular in 2015.
