The biggest trends of 2015


Whether you’re planning or reminiscing on your big day, there’s no doubt that 2015 saw some amazing styles and trends across the board. Here, we round up the top trends of the year, with a clear stand out – Boho-chick / rustic.

Themes & Décor:

The biggest trend in 2015 (and probably in 2014 as well) was by far the boho-chic or rustic styles with many couples opting for a more relaxed and informal atmosphere. There was a big focus on keeping an intimate and personal affair, the focus being long wooden tables instead of round ones, as well as tonnes of twinkly lights or candles to add a romantic and cosy feel.



2015 floral arrangements were BIG! Whether you opted for soft and floaty or lush and full, the boho-chic and rustic feel was also a big trend in flowers with some interesting and non-traditional additions, such as dominant foliage, nuts, berries and even fruit to bouquets and floral arrangements.



Colour scheme:

Again soft and floaty won in 2015 with many brides heading back into the direction of matching dresses for her bridal party. Gone are the days where each bridesmaid wore a completely different dress, we’re now opting for dresses in very similar style and colour to complement each body type. Floral head pieces were a massive trend in 2015 as well, with many brides deciding to wear flowers instead of the traditional veil.




There were many gorgeous trends in this category in 2015, sheer, sultry and graphic lace the clear stand outs of the year. We also saw many sheer/backless with lace and beading detail and plunging necklines that really made a special statement in the colder months.




The Groom:

The full beard and in some cases the “man bun” was a big trend for the boho-chic weddings in 2015, many grooms choosing from the blue hews for their look as well as creams and greys. We saw many Groomsmen in hipster styles with bow ties making a huge comeback in 2015 weddings.



Stay tuned for what we think the hottest trends and looks will be for 2016!

Good luck and happy planning.
