As we inch closer to wedding season, we thought we would take a look at some trends we’ve seen that are sure to reappear in 2015!
1. Wedding Attire
For men, we’ve seen an increase in blue and navy suits, rather than traditional black or gray (although gray is still prevalent.) For the bridal party, brides not longer feel pigeonholed in the traditional cookie-cutter choices for their bridesmaid dresses. They are choosing bold prints and patterns that reflect their style and are very fun! Check out these sequined dresses and this simple pink print!
2. Indie Music
Couples are also feeling free to play their favorite music during their reception. Rather than sticking to just the Top 40 dance music, many couples are slowing it down during dinner with eclectic indie rock groups, highlighting singer/songwriters and indie bands that they love.
3. Family-Style Receptions
4. Personalized Cocktails/Hors d’oeuvres
Couple are also personalizing their cocktails and guest favors to reflect their personal preference. From unique personalized cocktails named after the bride and groom to this party favor that plays off the couple’s first dance song (Tupelo Honey by Van Morrison) adding that personal touch is sure to be a hit!
5. Technological Innovations
Broadcasting your wedding for out-of-town loved ones has also been a trend. With friends living out of state or abroad, or parents and family haling from all over the world, couples are coming up with creative ways to use Skype, FaceTime, or other broadcasting video services so other family members can tune into the special day.
6. Music Requests
Finally, for those special dances songs, we at Stitely have already seen an increase in requests for Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” for the First Dance and Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” for dancing!
