2015 Wedding Trend Forecast
The beginning of the year is always an exciting time as we begin forecasting wedding trends for the year ahead. Our team analyzes trends from the world of fashion, the red carpet, interior design, and other areas to gather the top styles that we know brides will love. This year, our newly released 2015 Wedding Trend Report outlines a number of up and coming trends that we’re eager to share, including:
We have to give credit to Pantone for choosing a winner for Color of the Year. Marsala is a rich, burgundy color reminiscent of your favorite red wine. Although it’s at the other end of the spectrum from last year’s Radiant Orchid, we love the earthy feel of this hue! Marsala can be paired with your favorite color to transform your wedding into a gorgeous, rustic occasion.
Prints and Patterns
We’ve always loved prints and patterns, so we can’t wait to see what the brides of 2015 have in store! Patterns are popping up everywhere, from the runway to home décor styles, so it’s no surprise that they fit well into the wedding industry. There is sure to be a perfect pattern for your clients’ weddings, whether their style is gingham, animal print, or something in between.
Where to even begin? Some of our favorite upcoming décor trends include signature centerpieces, natural wood accents, luxury linens, and decorative lighting. We have noticed brides getting more creative with lighting as well– we see chandeliers and Edison lighting really making a name for themselves in 2015.
By now, you’ve probably come across “naked” cakes – trust us when we say you’ll be seeing more of them! Without the layer of icing outside, naked cakes are the epitome of simplicity. Other cake designs we forecast include metallics, patterns, unique flavors, and mixing and matching shapes of tiers.

Ultimately, weddings should be signature to your couples, so whether they choose to incorporate trends or go with something timeless, their wedding will surely be a day to remember.
