It’s still early 2015 and the party season seems to just keep going! This month it’s Valentine’s Day, and then in March the festival season starts, then Easter and so on…
Many of the themes we have seen for recent parties are transferring effortlessly into weddings too…
Take a look at our top 10 wedding reception party ideas for 2015…
Ready to Party At Your Wedding?
Wild West Themes
When it comes to design and style, weddings are heading west. This year’s big theme is inspired by leather accents and even ranch style! The concept is fun and relaxed but the details are elevated. Hire a rustic ranch and ad antler motifs, cowhide rugs and bouquets of wild flowers. Don’t forget plenty of leather details like napkin rings. Lay on craft beers and get guests to dress up Wild-West style. Or consider photo booths for hire with wild west props.
If you’re more a laid-back bride, opt for a boho-chic music festival type of theme. Think open fields or backyards for the setting and add kitsch details like picnic dining, tepees and cocktail lounges. Add hand-drawn maps to your invitations and get guests to dress like they’re off to Woodstock.
Drones, GoPros and Photo booths
If you want to save memories of your big day from every angle, try one of these new trends… Drones will capture incredible aerial shots of the day and GoPros can be attached to selfie sticks for some seriously creative shots. Don’t forget photo booth hire London to capture the theme and fun of your wedding and create lasting memories.
You don’t need to gather all the bridesmaids for bow tying and putting favours together. Instead, get hold of apps like TouristEye and TaskRabbit to plan your itinerary!
Food and Drink Trends
Food and drink still takes centre stage at weddings, no matter when your wedding is planned for. It just gets a little more outrageous in 2015. Think hanging salad stations and doughnut dessert walls, complete with beer gardens!
Outfits that make a statement
The wedding dress designs for this season are a lot more playful and casual. Jumpsuits are popular for brides as are statement-making separates and menswear-inspired styles.
Unique Wedding Venues
More couples are looking for really different venues like museums, caves and castles. The best thing is you don’t need to go overboard with décor designs!
Royal Colour Palettes
This year’s tones are set by Marsala. It’s a really rich wine red that is stylish and incredibly versatile. It can be paired with dusty blues for romance or rose gold for glamour.
A Third Dress
Why limit yourself to one dress. Brides are known to change their dress for the reception or after-party and a few brides are now choosing a third gown so there’s one for each part of their big day!
The past five years have been the reign of casual weddings. This year many couples will take their wedding styles in a different direction with plenty of elegant details such as multitier cakes, champagne towers and dramatic entrances. Or look at photo booth hire London and have a photo booth with a castle backdrop and fancy props. You can also add formalities to the wedding… How about valets to escort guests to their seats during the reception and hand-delivered invitations? Get the guys to go for three-piece suits and the bridesmaids to wear elegant ball gowns.
Whatever you choose this year, you can add fun and capture memories at your wedding reception with a photo booth. Not only do photo booths allow guests to pass time while you’re having your professional photos taken, but they get everyone into a party mood, especially when props are used!
Whatever one of these trends appeals, you’ll be sure to have some fun! We’d love to hear from you if you have some party inspired wedding reception ideas too!
