Wedding Inspirations for 2015

 

Here’s our list for 2015 – enjoy & be inspired!

***

1. Flower-gasm
Flowers are becoming the focal point of many couples’ reception decor, not just an addition. Flowers have a way of rendering the decor lush and romantic.

2. The Cape Trend
In late 2014, Solange ‘broke the internet’ in her unconventional white outfits at her New Orleans wedding. Two of the outfits incorporated capes, which we predict will be an even bigger trend this year.

3. Grand Entrances
Nowadays brides and grooms dancing in with their friends alone won’t cut it. Brides are entering with performance troupes, bagpipes, you name it.

Yes, there’s the traditional and white wedding, but now couples are infusing other elements – cultural and otherwise – into these occasions.

5. Unconventional Bridal Parties
In 2014, we saw the rise of unconventional bridal parties. Women stood by the groom’s side … shall we call them ‘grooms-women’?

7. Monochrome Traditional Bridal Wear 
Traditional weddings are the best opportunity to play with colour! Many brides are however, opting to wear their favourite colour for different elements of their outfit – from headwrap to wrapper. The hottest colours are shades of blue and green – aqua, teal etc.

9. Custom Wedding Dresses 
If you want more bling, more beading, more everything, why not get your dress custom made?

Nowadays Nigerian brides regardless of their religion desire the ‘princess look’ for their wedding day, and that often comes with a custom white wedding dress!

We see this trend rising in 2015, in Christian and Muslim weddings alike, as brides are making their own rules for their special day.

boring black suit and tie combinations! Nowadays grooms and groomsmen are mixing it up, giving their fresh spin and infusing their personal style into their wedding looks.
