Miss Denise & I recently popped into the grand finale of Bridal Fashion week – the premier luxury Wedding Salon in NYC – and were beyond ourselves to immediately encounter THIS:
At the event we saw row upon row of wedding vendors — and countless brides.
And just a few things that caught our eye…
According to Wedding Salon, these are 3 of the top bridal trends for 2015:
1. Headpieces Instead of Veils.
Top designers, including M&J Bridal and House of Trends, featured glamorous headpieces rather than traditional veils. Head pieces have increased in popularity as brides feel that a lavish head piece is really only suitable for a special day such as a wedding.
2. Earthy Tones.
Wedding Salon vendors including Big Dawg featured the Garden Style Farm Tables that have become popular all over America. Having originated in the South West, New York City put its spin on this style with vintage china, chandeliers, soft romantic flowers, and candles.
3. Local Destination Weddings.
Destination Weddings are expanding to include both “local destinations” as well as “travel destinations”. Local destination weddings take place at beautiful resorts just a drive away from home, providing couples with venues for their large weekend weddings.
As someone who got engaged yesterday (no seriously, this happened!!!!), I guess I should have taken more notes at this event :) I definitely feel like I could put all three trends into play when the big day comes, and I am so excited to get more ideas and inspiration.
