Whether you’re planning your winter wedding in Tipperary, Limerick, Waterford or Kilkenny, Christmas is a wonderful time of year, and it’s also the perfect time for a magical winter wedding. With the holiday season fast approaching, here are a few trends to keep in mind for your 2015 Christmas wedding.
The Colour Scheme:
This Christmas, the fusion of wedding and winter wonderland-style colours will reign. These three colour schemes will be most prevalent:
– Red and green, with hints of gold remains a popular colour scheme this Christmas. These warm, rich colours are perfect for more traditional weddings, and for those that really want to get into the holiday spirit.
– Wine and gold as always is another festive colour combination that is subtle enough for an elegant wedding, but still offers a nod to the holiday season without being too over the top.
– For those looking for something more understated, neutral, winter-appropriate shades, like light greys, silver, and pale blues will also be big this festive season.
Lace detailing is a huge trend this holiday season. Whether you opt for lace panels or sleeves, this beautiful fabric has been making a reappearance on the fashion scene during the build up to the winter months. Renowned bridal-wear designers, from Angel Sanchez to Inbal Dror have featured lace prominently in their 2015 winter and autumn collections.
Illusion dresses, (where parts of the dress such as the neckline, feature a sheer material) will also be incredibly popular this Christmas period. This style allows for a more modern, slightly edgier look, whilst still lending itself to the coveted bridal chic and elegance that many brides strive for.
Popular bridal-wear designers, from Kenneth Pool to Carolina Herrera, have featured illusion dresses as part of their 2015 collections. Another popular look with designers this year is the plunging V-neck. This trend for showing more skin is set to continue through the winter season into spring.
Remember, you are unique in your own style and preferences and should opt only for one of these trends if they truly appeal to you. Don’t be afraid to go chose your own direction when it comes to buying or designing your own gown.
As couples move away from more traditional venues, the trend for holding the ceremony and the reception in more unusual locations, like museums and private estates, is set to continue for Christmas 2015
Castles do remain a popular and trendy wedding choice this holiday season. The best thing about using a unique venue like a castle for your winter wedding is that you don’t have to focus as much on the décor, the surrounding architecture and scenery will add it’s own uniqueness to your big day.
Reminiscent of Bavarian Christmas markets, food trucks are a big trend this Christmas. As couples seek out more unique and modern venues, many are also searching for more unusual catering options.
Rather than offering the traditional buffet or sit down meal, couples are more and more opting for food trucks to cater at their weddings. The modern day food trucks aren’t simply limited to fried foods, you will now find a diverse selection of Irish mobile caterers that offer everything from sushi to ice-cream, and from noodles to full traditional roast dinners.
The Brides Makeup:
This winter season, strong, bold lips are a trend that keeps growing and growing. Shades like burgundy, wine, purple, and red look to be most popular with winter brides and the eye makeup will be kept subtle as a nice contrast. For Christmas, neutral metallic shades, like rose gold and silver will also be incredibly popular.
