Getting Married? These 7 Sweet Wedding Trends Will Last Into 2015

We love weddings. After all, as you read this article, you’re probably thinking of someone you know that’s about to get married – or someone who has already “jumped the broom” recently. Heck, it might be you that’s on your way to walk that rose petal-strewn runway.

Whether you’re getting married or just dreaming of your big day, check out these seven sweet wedding trends that show no signs of slowing down into 2015 and beyond:

1. Vintage and personalized party favors

    We’ve seen “personalized” and we’ve seen “vintage,” but a new twist for popular wedding favors are the kinds of cool Mason jars with nostalgic-looking labels from sites like My Bride Fairy that couples are offering their guests as a unique way to show their thanks.

    2. A Bridal Beauty Routine Six Months in Advance

      According to Brides, women are using all kinds of tactics to get flawless skin prior to their wedding. But experts in skin care development advise launching into your dermatology quest – like getting Retinol, chemical peels or laser treatments – many months prior to your nuptials, and warn against adopting any harsh plans for your skin the week of your wedding.

      3. Non-matching bridesmaid dresses

        The mismatched bridesmaid dresses frenzy has taken over Pinterest, proving that instead of inflicting their female wedding party participants with fluffy-sleeved fuchsia monstrosities that all look alike, some brides are going the non-traditional route and allowing each woman to wear a dress in a color and fit that looks best on her particular body.

        4. Specific wedding hashtags on social media

          Requests for guests to “Instagram” the wedding using specific hashtags is another hot trend that allows the bride, groom and their loved ones to find all sorts of photos via social networking accounts that they may have missed otherwise.

          5. Crystallized nails

            Gone are the days of the plain old boring French manicure or dull pearlized nails for your special day. Instead women are relying on creative nail experts like Christina Caasi, who gets credit for the above-pictured creation, to craft special styles for their digits. After all, plenty of focus will land on the bride’s hand as she has that extra band slipped on her ring finger – so making nails appear extra pretty with classy crystal designs is a task that makes your extremities as “wedding worthy” as those engagement photos.

            6. Wedding boudoir photos

              I guess wedding boudoir photography is on the rise because women want to remind their husbands-to-be just how fortunate they are to have the privilege to marry hot women such as their wives-to-be. Usually it involves a secret photo shoot whereby the bride might don lingerie or some sort of sexy gear, lots of cosmetics and soft lighting. She can then sneak the photos over to her groom as part of her wedding gift to him, reminding him of the romantic honeymoon night ahead.

              7. Wedding balloons, photo booth pics of guests and more…

                Beyond sensual photos of the bride for her bridegroom, other trends in wedding photography and general wedding fare can be garnered simply by checking out the websites of master photographers like Khaki Bedford. Scrolling through the Polaroids/Film category, you’ll see the big wedding trend of creative types of balloons that couples hold during their photo shoots – and I’m not talking some boring latex fare, but golden Xs and Os that represent kisses and hugs.

                Within the “photo booth” category, you’ll discover interesting photos of wedding guests utilizing all sorts of props to make their images intriguing and practically jump off the page when compared to traditional boring and staid photos of nuptials from the past.

                Therefore, with all these exciting wedding trends, there’s no reason to have a dull ceremony and festivities.
