Wedding decor in 2015 is all about making a statement, from the colour palette you choose to the accents that will define your day. Grand entranceways, rows upon rows of candles and bold, green colour schemes are all on our radar for the year ahead.
Our first wedding decor trend: Grand Entranceways.
In 2014, we saw a ton of statement-making decor accents at weddings (think Kim and Kanye’s 20-foot-high floral wall), which we predict will extend into this year.
One of the best ways to instantly impress your guests is with a well-defined entryway framed with greenery, blooms, crystals or curtains. Here we’ll show you all of the different ways you can work with your theme and venue to create a truly grand entrance.
Green Themes And Details
Emerald may have been 2013’s Pantone Color of the Year, but for 2015 this hue is back in a big way alongside every other green shade imaginable. From avocado and mint to olive, there’s an array of greens to pick from. Easily matched with any other shade, green has the ability to lend any venue a lush, romantic atmosphere. Pair your favourite shade of green with neutrals like cream or white for a more classic approach or combine darker hues with metallics to create a mod mood. From centrepieces to table numbers, we’ll show you how to work this fresh hue into your wedding celebration.
From fancy fonts to colourful ink, there are plenty of choices when it comes to calligraphy these days. Organic, free-flowing script can lend a romantic look to everything from your signage to your stationery suite, but keep in mind: unless you’re incredibly confident with your own penmanship, you’ll want to work with a professional calligrapher to achieve a uniform look. Here we’ll show you all of the beautiful ways modern calligraphy can enhance your day.
Forget chair covers that drape every seat in swaths of fabric; for 2015, it’s all about sleek chair caps. Not only do these chic accents offer a simple way to add interest to your tablescape, but they also provide a lovely means by which to incorporate subtle colour and texture into your reception room. Chair caps work best with Chiavari chairs due to their design. Lace and burlap chair caps are popular choices, but depending on your motif, there are boundless fabric options to pick from include chevron patterns, sequins, and even faux fur. Here, we’ve rounded up some of our favourites chair caps to add to your list of decor must-haves.
Candles have long been a popular wedding decor accent but they’ll be especially prevalent in 2015. This year, expect to see rows of votives and pillars lining ceremony aisles and clusters of tapered candles and candelabras topping reception tables.
Candles can change the entire dynamic of a space — tapered candles can elongate a room, candelabras add instant drama and clusters of votives can bring warmth to even the most enormous reception venue. From centrepieces to ceremony decor, here are a few crafty ways to incorporate candles into your wedding.
