Bridwell Park - Top 10 Wedding Trends 2015

1. Drone wedding photos and videos

Get a fresh new angle on your big day by taking advantage of new drone technology. The aerial camera can allow you to get creative and make sure that no one is left out of your wedding snaps (there is always one). Reaching new heights, the drone will also allow you even more opportunity to make sure that your fab wedding location is captured in all its glory. The grounds here at Bridwell would make the perfect backdrop, with over 100 acres of 18th-century parkland, woodland and an ornamental lake.

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?

Staying with the technology theme and really showing off your technical savvy – apps can help the busiest bride-to-be stay on track, as well as giving you some priceless inspiration. TaskRabbit can link you with people in your area who have the experience, or simply a trusty pair of hands, to help you with all your pre-wedding tasks. TouristEye will provide you with ideas for the most unforgettable honeymoon. Appy Couple will allow you and your guests to go paper free. Personalise a mini-website where guests can RSVP, browse your gift list and research transport options. With these apps and our experienced event management and wedding planners you can ensure a stress-free build up to your big day.

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.
