Wedding Planning

A Look Back at 2015’s Biggest Wedding Trends

A brief overview of the most popular themes, locations and time of the year for weddings.


Wedding Salon connects brides with luxury vendors, who execute designs based on the most requested services from brides.  From our shows this season, we have seen some distinct wedding trends for 2015:

Headpieces Instead of Veils: Top designers, including M&J Bridal and House of Trends, feature glamorous headpieces rather than traditional veils. Headpieces have increased in popularity as brides feel that a lavish headpiece is really only suitable for a special day such as a wedding.

Earthy Tones: Wedding Salon vendors including Big Dawg featured the garden style farm tables (shown above) that have become popular all over America. Having originated in the Southwest, New York City put its spin on this style with vintage china, chandeliers, soft romantic flowers, and candles.

Men & the Wedding Planning Process: In 2015 men are getting more involved in wedding planning. As the tradition of parents paying for weddings fades, men have become more involved in the planning process. We see their influence in more masculine palettes, such as the growing pale blue and navy blue accent trend.

Location of the Destination Wedding: Destination weddings are expanding to include both local and travel destinations. Local destination weddings take place at beautiful resorts just a drive away from home, providing couples with venues for their large weekend weddings.  Couples with smaller destination weddings are flocking to the Caribbean and tropical resorts as they hop on a flight with their closest friends and family.

The height of wedding season peaks summertime and fall months. With the help of luxury vendors from Wedding Salon, our New York City brides are prepared to get hitched.
