Top 5 of the Hottest Wedding Trends for 2015 - by Renowned Event Planner

A new year means there are new trends in fashion, food and . . . of course, weddings. Engagement season is between Christmas and the end of February so that's means there are a lot of new couples starting to make their wedding plans. Since wedding day plans should include some of the hottest trends, Cynthia Pesce {event planner and general manager at the award-winning Inn at New Hyde Park in Long Island, New York} joins us today with her top five 2015 weddings trends.

1. Late-night Dining

This is a trend that started to gain traction in 2014. In 2015, we think a much larger portion of weddings will feature mid night or post reception snacks. After a night of dancing and cocktails, what better than a few comfort or mini foods before your guests head home. A few examples include: sliders, bacon items, assortments of grilled cheeses and more. Also look for infused alcohol in desserts. YUM!

2. Earthy Color Schemes

Look for more browns, tans, warm grays, and greens as weddings will have more of an earthy feel to them. Many earth tones originate from clay earth pigments, such as umber, ochre, and sienna.

3. Rustic Remains Popular

Look for more greenery garden like floral arrangements as brides and grooms focus on a natural clean appeal.

4. Simple Floral Centerpieces

The floral centerpieces will be simpler and less structured. You can also say goodbye to lush colors. We will also see less florals that are in the shape of a ball, as the flowers will be staged together more naturally.

5. Wedding Dresses : New and Old Favorites

Like any fashion industry, each year brings new styles or brings back old favorites. In 2015 brides are looking at more peekaboo lace, dresses with capped sleeves, and ruffled textured dresses {like this one from BHLDN}.
