The wonderful part about today’s wedding is that they are no longer required to be the cookie-cutter weddings of the past. Now today’s brides and grooms are allowed to personalize their weddings which means that nothing is out of reach for someone with the deepest of wallets and the most vibrant of imaginations.
However, some trends have appeared at some stylish weddings and they are projected to continue through 2015. What follows are a few great trends which have been seen at weddings from the East Coast to the West Coast and everything in between.
It should make brides and grooms everywhere happy to know that romance is back in a very big way. From lace accents on wedding invitations (another big trend) to big, rosy bouquets, this wedding look has come out swinging. One of the most romantic accents that newlyweds have used at their receptions is lighting.
Lighting sets the mood and couples that want to be romantic turn down the lights and let the candles do the work. Candelabras, votives and floating centerpieces all manage to inject love and sweeping romance into every wedding reception.
Remember how it was mentioned that lace accents were a perfect accompaniment to a romantic wedding? Well another trendy wedding invitation look is all about the gold, or more specifically the rose gold. Rose gold has been a big trend in wedding jewelry and the beautiful metallic has managed to cross over to wedding invitations.
Yet for the biggest trends in weddings, one needs to look no further than the food. Culinary trends have exploded in the past year with too many to list here, yet too many to omit. So, foodies may just be having the best year yet at weddings.
Now, everyone knows that cakes have their own trends, but more and more brides and grooms are ditching the cakes in favor of other pastries. Macaron towers are especially popular with newlyweds because they taste good and are showstoppers. Others elect to go the Parisian route and have their cake made out of crepes.
Crepe cakes are very popular in the South and guests have loved them for a long time. Bakers favor this trend because the preparation and decoration is much easier than on a traditional, multi-tiered wedding cake.
Couples that are having trendy rustic weddings tend to forego cakes altogether and instead have pies on hand. Think about it, how many people don’t like pies? Apple, sweet potato, blackberry and peach pies are among the most popular pie flavors at weddings. Then, add a drop of homemade ice cream on top and watch guests eat it up.
Couples can’t subsist on cakes alone at their weddings which is why many are inviting the trendiest of dining options, food trucks to their weddings. Food trucks are a trend that is more popular on the West Coast, but more and more brides and grooms are hiring them for their weddings.
Even in places outside of California, Washington and Oregon people are finding ways to incorporate mobile food vendors at their weddings. Cotton candy carts are gaining popularity and so are New Orleans sno-balls. Yet, sometimes people just want a bit of relaxation.
For those couples, it is comfort food all the way. Basically anything one would find on a Southerner’s kitchen table on a Sunday is acceptable. However, instead of super-sized portions, these couples are shrinking the portions down and offering miniature versions of the dishes.Thus, their guests get the comfort food without the guilt.
Weddings have long been stylish affairs, but it wasn’t until recently that couples were allowed to showcase their unique sense of style and start their own trends. Now, food and romance revolutions are appearing at weddings all over the country, and brides, grooms and their guests are rejoicing.
