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…

              Bride-and-groom

                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.

                8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                1. Smart Door Locks

                A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                5. Nest Thermostat

                This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                6. Smart Lighting

                Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                7. Google Chromecast Ultra

                Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

                8. Canary

                This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
