Bridwell Park - Top 10 Wedding Trends 2015
1. Drone wedding photos and videos
Think it’ll cost you the earth, think again - a good drone will set you back as little as £75.
2. Would you App-reciate some help?
3. All change
Changing into something shorter and more manageable so that you can wow on the dancefloor is a wedding favourite. Who wouldn’t want to have an excuse to wear two gorgeous dresses? But why stop there? In true Hollywood style, brides are starting to take it one step further, with yes, a third outfit change. Glide down the aisle in a gown; roam around your reception in a sheath and dance like a diva in a mini dress. (Ask our beauty contacts to give you a hairstyle that will match all three!)
4. Ditch the dress
To cut back on the need to change altogether, why not ditch the traditional and restrictive wedding dress and opt for an on-trend jumpsuit or chic separates. Celebrities like Olivia Palermo and Solange Knowles have been trend setting this modern sophisticated look – so why not follow suit.
5. Boho-chic music festivals
Roll two events into one and have your very own wedding festival. With the more informal approach a favourite among many modern couples, this is a great way to introduce a bit of an edge and stay ‘low key’. There are a number of outdoor options available at Bridwell for your music event and even the option of sleeping under the stars in a glamping tent, courtesy of our partner the Pop-Up Hotel, to really make it authentic.
6. Sole Mate
To enhance your Boho look, there are some stunning alternatives to the classic T-bar heel. Barefoot sandals come in a plethora of different options, from beads to crystals and lace to ribbon. They are also a perfect gift for bridesmaids, who are sure to appreciate a night without heels.
7. Formal affair
Casual weddings may be the trend du jour, but formal affairs are making a comeback and are bigger and bolder than ever. Think opulent champagne towers, valets and even crowns for the new Mr and Mrs. Glide down Bridwell’s dramatic, sweeping staircase to greet your guests and indulge yourself in the stunning Lord Ivar or Lady Ivar suites to really feel like royalty.
8. Food installations
Not to upstage the bride, but food is taking centre stage at weddings in 2015. Those nights spent drooling over Great British Bake Off or Masterchef will not go to waste! From doughnut dessert walls and hanging salad stations, our catering partners can help you to create a gastronomic masterpiece.
9. English blooms
Whether formal or informal, make sure to support British blooms. English Roses, Peonies, Hydrangeas, Dahlias and Ranunculus continue to be go-to favourites among brides, as they are romantic and versatile.
10. Colour statement
Pantone have announced that Marsala red would be their colour of the Year and weddings are taking notice. The rich and earthy colour is popping up on everything from the bridesmaids’ dresses to invitations and is particularly popular for fall/winter weddings. Enlist our help to add a splash of colour to proceedings.
