2015 Wedding Trends

2015 Wedding Trends

Full of confidence and positivity, our brides and grooms of 2015 are more willing than ever to push boundaries in search of new, intriguing, cutting edge, inspiring and creative ideas. Think...

Bold and Ornate Colour Schemes

Copper (and Grey!)

We expect to see a big rise in the number of innovative couples incorporating copper into their colour schemes. Following the popularity of metallic colours such as silver and titanium, copper presents an unusual variation on the metallic theme and will undoubtedly be a prominent colour in the autumn/fall of 2015.

Pantone's 2015 colour of the year is marsala, which you will hear described as a warm, full-bodied, earthy red-berry rich colour. It is a reasonably elegant colour that works ok on its own and can enhance any other colours it's combined with, especially the metallics. And obviously it will be a key colour throughout this year.

However, if you are considering marsala as a primary or secondary colour for your wedding, you should also be considering the less washed-out and deeper tones of burgundy or maroon. Clearly their colours are bolder and more impressive. There will be an article focussing on maroon wedding ideas in the coming weeks.


Purple will be more popular than ever and we are tipping violet to be prominent over the coming months.

Neon made a bit of a splash in the wedding industry a few years ago and let's face it, you cant get much more bolder from a colour perspective! Bright neon colours are everywhere in the world of fashion at present! It's therefore only a matter of time before some of the braver brides among you incorporate neon within your colour schemes. Bright pinks, yellow, oranges and greens - they wont be hard miss!

Minimalist, Contemporary Approach To Wedding Design.

In direct contrast to such bold, bright and ornate colours, we are at the same time going to see a more minimalist approach to interior wedding design and decoration. Ultra modern, contemporary, minimalistic and cutting edge will be the way forward this year.

And for our own recommendation for an eye-catching and innovative 2015 wedding - why not consider a minimalist styled wedding incorporating some delicate touches of neon green!

Multiple Dress Changes & Combination Bridal Dresses.

Look out for bridal dress changes this season too. Chinese brides traditionally change dresses 2 or 3 times during their wedding day and an ever increasing numbers of western brides have been adopting this approach over the past decade. It makes for a more comfortable bride who is able to party the night away, safe in the knowledge her princess wedding dress or train will not get in the way or be accidentally damaged on the dance floor.
