Wedding Trends for 2015

It's almost time to wave goodbye to 2014 and welcome the new year with a big lipstick-red smooch. And with that, we also say hello to all the lovely wedding trends popping up like blooming wildflowers. It's never too early to start planning and dreaming up ways to incorporate these ideas.

Calligraphy Invitations

Move over bold typography and make way for sweeping romance. The vintage charm of a handwritten letter is making a comeback. Calligraphy prints can be as over-the-top or simple as you want them to be. Add a few lines in a simple font for a more modern look or print the whole invitation in grand lettering for that ink and quill feel.

Organic Bouquets

Think wildflowers, unstructured, straight-from-the-earth bouquets. You can even incorporate other natural elements like wheat, fruits, and herbs.

Kites

Kites as decor, kites as guestbooks, flying kites! If you're tired of giant balloons, consider the humble kite. It's the perfect accessory to a spring wedding, whether used as decoration or actually flown. Plus, they make for great guest favors. 

Flower & Moss Lettering

Whether it's flowers and moss or just moss used for lettering, this trend is perfect for a garden wedding or for a couple who wants a more organic look.

Neon Lights

It's not just an 80's thing. Custom signs lit up with bright neon colors really add a pop to drab walls and dark spaces. Use mini neon signs as table centerpieces or light up the walls with some lovey dovey text.

Interactive Food Stations

Food bars are an unexpected way to delight your guests. 
"No two people are alike, which means that no two palates are alike. Creating food stations or bars gives guests a way to customize your menu choices to their tastes. It's a way to cater to every kind of eater - those who don't like too much sauce or those who prefer a little more garlic. The use of stations will also get guests out of their seats, perfect for mingling and conversing." - Weddings Illustrated
And there are a multitude of options - everything from pancake bars to cocktail mixers to build-your-own pizzas.

Video Booths

No doubt, photo booths were a huge hit in 2014, but now it's time to shake things up and put a little twist on the old photo. Enter video booths! Have guests record a message instead of signing a guestbook or let them do their own thing in front of the camera. You're sure to collect plenty of laugh-worthy moments.
