It’s fair to say Sarah Dawson, Deputy Editor of Perfect Wedding (the UK’s best-selling monthly wedding magazine) can sniff out a wedding trend at fifty paces. We asked her to share the BIG wedding trends for 2015 – over to Sarah:

A huge part of my role at Perfect Wedding is spotting up and coming wedding trends, and showing our readers how they can get the look for their big day.

Now more than ever couples are looking for ways to personalise their wedding, which is why DIY is such a huge part of planning. But in 2015 I predict a move towards quirkier, unexpected details playing a part, particularly in reception styling.

Rustic, festival-style weddings were huge in 2014, but in 2015, we predict a move towards a more luxe-hippie vibe for receptions (think Poppy Delevingne’s Moroccan nuptials) with plenty of sequins, bright colours and elegant chill-out areas.

Blush was hands-down THE colour of 2014, whether that was bridesmaids dresses, décor or flowers. Of course this go-to shade will never go out of bridal fashion (it is so goddam pretty after all) but for 2015 powder blue and greys will be everywhere.

Here are 5 of the biggest wedding trends for 2015 (plus, my pick of Etsy items to help you get the look)…

1. Sequins

The easiest way to inject some mega-watt glamour into your day is by embracing the sequin trend. Whether you dare to rock a gorgeous sparkling wedding gown, or dress your venue with luxe tablecloths and chair covers, you can’t go wrong. I LOVE this wedding trend.

2. Feathers

I adore the drama of a feather cape or statement headpiece for brides. It’s such a cool fashion look, and one we’ll see more brides channeling in 2015. If you’re going for a more chilled out look for your day you can still work the trend with a cute clutch or through feathery reception details.

3. Tuscan dream

You don’t have to be getting married in an Italian vineyard to get on board with this hot reception trend. Set the tone with rustic stationery printed with lemons and vines, then fill your day with hessian detail and aromatic pots of rosemary.

4. Watercolours

Wedding stationery makes me very happy (I know, I should get out more) and I am coveting all things watercolour for 2015 – there is just something so pretty about a colour-wash save the date or invite. With watercolour bridal gowns spotted on the catwalk at David Fielden and Alan Hannah, this trend is set to run and run.

5. Pineappples

Tropical touches are going to be massive for 2015. Pineapples are totally having a moment – from bold wedding stationery and reception décor to delicate bridal jewellery. Pass us a piña colada…
