At the beginning of each year, it is usual to look at the trends that will dominate the wedding world. Though 2015 is now well underway, there are fabulous style trends that we wanted to share with brides and grooms as they prepare their wedding in France.
So today our resident wedding planning expert Fabienne Slater owner of Elian Concept Weddings and Events and member of UK Alliance of Wedding Planners takes us through her Top Wedding Trends for 2015!
So what do I find inspiring in French wedding design? 2015 brings us gorgeous colour palettes and ‘mix styling’. Whether you opt for Rustic/Chic, Garden/Glamour, Outdoor/Modern or any other combination that works for you, it offers so many varieties for wedding decoration and a perfect foundation to personalise your wedding and make it unique.

Deep rich colours such as Marsala, scuba blue or classic blue, more subtle hues of strawberry ice, lucite green and aquamarine, or the ever elegant grey the 2015 bride is spoiled for choice.

Now let’s take a look at my favourite décor trends.
This must be the most gorgeous of the new trends.

Use it to embellish a barn wall or brighten a wood. You will not need much more to make a stunning backdrop for your ceremony or your top table.
Another popular look for flowers is the “just picked from the garden” bouquets and flower arrangements and they are perfect with garden or backyard sceneries.

Hanging flowers and decorations
Particularly appropriate to add touches of colours in a garden or to bring texture and volume to your table décor.

This is a more rustic style and it mixes elegantly with long table settings, which is also a big, big thing this year.

Interestingly metallic is not as ‘cold’ as it sounds. The tones are warm and gold or copper are gracing 2015 tablescapes. They are as perfect in an indoor Chateau wedding than in an outdoor garden setting.

Whether it’s chairs, lightings or flower arrangements, modern touches are appearing in the most traditional wedding decors and make wonders in a French chateau wedding or a rustic setting.

A fantastic and beautiful way to personalise your wedding stationery and décor. The sky is the limit really when it comes to create monograms and hand-letterings which will be unique.

I hope you will find inspiration in these ideas and I would like to conclude with this table décor which for me is a perfect mix of my favourite 2015 wedding trends.
