According to The Knot, a trusted source for all things wedding, 2015 is the year of GoPro cameras, family-style dinner receptions and wild and crazy venues. Read up on some of the latest bridal trends — from food to fashion to flowers.
Bridal jumpsuits are hot
Inspired by TV personalities and celebrities alike, this fashion-forward look is slowly gaining traction. Top designers are churning out chic wedding separates (frilly top and skirt or shorts), white wedding jumpsuits and even menswear-inspired creations.
Capture it all with a GoPro camera
Some photographers are using drones to get amazing aerial shots of the ceremony that showcase your surroundings. And for the best – and most candid footage – videographers rely on GoPro cameras to capture all the action on the dance floor and reactions as guests enter the reception.
Dining together, family style
Today’s couples put a lot of emphasis and thought into guest interaction. And there’s no better way to get everyone talking than a gourmet family-style meal, where sides, plated entrees and salads are shared and passed among guests.
Unique wedding venues
For those who have the cash to spare, renting a private island or castle makes for an unforgettable event. But you don’t have to be a millionaire to find a luxurious and exotic setting for your big day. Destination weddings in Costa Rica have become increasingly popular, and with gorgeous rainforest and beaches as your backdrop, extravagant décor is totally unnecessary – the venue speaks for itself.
Romantic color palette — marsala and blue
Marsala was one of the top wedding colors of 2015. This rich wine hue, paired with a medium dusky blue, offers a sophisticated and elegant look. Bouquets and flower arrangements may include peonies and dahlias which naturally grow in this deep red tone.
