We don’t have a crystal ball, but we do have access to local event planners who have a pulse on what’s hot in the world of weddings. Here are a few of the biggest wedding trends for this year.
1. Set your own trends
The “Selfie” is taking a whole new meaning as brides and grooms choose to infuse their ceremonies and receptions with personality and make their day their own. “The American Celebrity Wedding Planner and Designer David Tutera once taught me an important lesson. It’s not so much about wedding trends. The bride and groom set their own trend,” says Marilse Statie-Texeira Brazao from Celebrations!
2. Curaçao as a preferred destination
Curaçao is becoming increasingly popular as a wedding destination. According to Gwen and Ryan from Unique Planners outdoor weddings will be big in 2015. The predictable weather on Curaçao makes it the perfect place to plan your magical outdoor wedding. “The island offers a variety of options ranging from unique landscapes, beaches and great weather to delicious cuisine. No matter your wedding theme or personal taste, it’s the place to get married in 2015.”
3. Keep it local
Couples flying in for their wedding as well as locals are sourcing everything locally. Marilse says that couples often use international magazines as inspiration, but it is our local vendors who incorporate their wishes in the dress, decoration, food and floral arrangements. No more import, but strictly local. “We have many local vendors capable of delivering excellent service, often matching and sometimes exceeding service you’ll find in bigger markets. Besides, we love weddings on the island so you’re sure to get that warm personal touch each and every time!”
4. Details, details, details
Although couples are making their special day very much their own, Unique Planners predicts that there are some things that will be popular in 2019. Pastel colour combinations as well as sleek romantic wedding dresses with a little bit of bling will be among the favourites next year. Gwen and Ryan also expect brides and grooms to offer appetizers and good-sized snacks instead of serving an entrée.
Last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank all of you for supporting this blog this past year. Wishing you a festive season and a wonderful new year. We look forward to capturing all your happy moments in 2019.
