Hudson Valley Weddings – The Biggest Wedding Trends for 2015


Hudson Valley Weddings – The Biggest Wedding Trends for 2015

The New Year always brings about some fantastic fresh trends to the wedding industry. We’re so excited about the New Year and there are some amazing wedding additions we can’t wait to share with you.
If you are having your Hudson Valley wedding in 2015, then these are the wedding trends you must keep in mind.

 

Revealing, Beautiful Wedding Gowns with a Twist

If you haven’t picked your wedding gown, then there are some amazing ideas for 2015. You should definitely consider two of the biggest trends in gowns: revealing, off-the-shoulder necklines and colorful twists.
The off-the-shoulder necklines have featured in nearly all the gowns on the runway. This adds a lovely element of sexiness to your bridal dress, while still giving a quite sweet and touching finish to your look.
 
 
 
 
 
Furthermore, there’s plenty of color in wedding dresses in 2015. You have fantastic shades of blue and gold, for example. You don’t need to go with a fully colorful dress either, as many gowns just have color in smaller details.
 
 

 

Cool and Soft Colors

More importantly, the color trends for weddings in 2015 are very cool and soft. The color for the start of the year is definitely aquamarine. It’s a beautiful, soft color and you can mix it with a brighter golden-orange or a subtle pink.
 
 
Other big color combinations next year include different shades of grey combined with pink and khaki. You should also look forward to using sage and sandalwood in your wedding décor.
 
 
For those that love stronger colors, burgundy and gold are still a big hit in 2015. Royal blue or a dark navy blue can also be a perfect addition for a stronger, deeper flavor.

 

Exotic and Manageable Food

When it comes to wedding food, party nibbles and smaller proportions are definitely here to stay. There’s no need to stuff your guests with food anymore and manageable portions are much more popular in 2015. For instance, Chinese spoons are making a strong comeback.
 
 
Think a bit outside the box and don’t be afraid to try different flavor combinations. You could even consider adding a trendy spice rack as a centerpiece to ensure guests get to play with flavors!

 

A Splash from the Past

Music is definitely an essential part of your wedding and in 2015 it’s all about the past. Hudson Valley wedding DJs are going to be playing a lot more hits from the 70s and 80s.
 
Furthermore, there will be a lot of refreshed renditions of older songs. Plenty or remixes are playing at the moment and new artists are re-recording some of the good, old-fashioned classics.

 

Edible Favors and  Cute Drawings

When it comes to providing your guests with a memory of the wedding, 2015 is all about edible favors. Chocolate boxes, home baked bread and cute cookie-making kits are all big wedding favor hits in 2015. Much of this is due to the practicality of edible wedding favors. Although you want your guests to remember your wedding day for long, you don’t want to fill their cupboards with unwanted items.
 
 
 
 
 
On top of this, photo booths are slowly giving way to silhouette and caricature artists. These are a fun way to add a twist to the traditional wedding photos and will be a lovely memento of the event.
