Ideas You’re Not Going to See at Every Other 2015 Wedding

Looking for wedding planning ideas and bridal accessories that aren’t going to make the trend lists? I feel you! Once a wedding planning idea hits the trend lists chances are everyone and their sister will be using it in their ceremonies and receptions. So here’s what you do – you stay away from the wedding trends lists that are practically ubiquitous. You look at inspiration without an agenda. No theme. No must-haves. You do what you love. And you mix it up with ideas like these:

botanical-wedding-inspiration-wedding-reception-decor

Botanicals (omg ferns) are going to be a big deal in 2015 but simple tables? When are simple wedding tables ever really trendy? Pillar candles and not much else can make a wedding reception table feel complete.

glitter wedding inspriation

Glitter, glitter, glitter! If you love sparkle, unleash a glitter bomb on your DIY wedding decor and put it on everything. It’s okay – sometimes too much is just enough!

industrial-wedding-reception-inspiration

Industrial weddings may be a 2015 trend or not. I have my doubts it’s going to make it much past the pages of the bridal mags so if you love this look you’re probably going to be in the minority.

outdoor wedding blankets

Boring white folding chairs? AS IF. Take your outdoor wedding to the floor with picnic blankets, baskets, and bottles of wine. (Though be kind and put out a few chairs for older guests who might have trouble getting back up once they’re down.) via fresnoweddings.net

photo table runner wedding

How cute is this pictorial table runner I found on Bellatheblog.com? Yes, it’s great for an engagement party but why not use it as sweetheart table decor or a way to gussy up your cake table?

smores wedding favors DIY easy

Who loves s’mores? Everyone loves s’mores. For fall and winter weddings, s’mores favors are not to be missed! via ohlovelyday.com

wedding ceremony arrow decor DIY

This glitter – yes, glitter – arrow I found on 100layercake.com guides wedding guests to the ceremony spot in the most fabulous way. That’s one way to wow your guests before they even see your gown.

wedding coloring book DIY

If you love this coloring book for the kids at your wedding, just think about how much your littlest guests will adore you for having it ready and waiting on reception tables! Or skip the DIY and just print the ready made coloring book here.

wedding dress pin DIY

Embroidered initials on the lining of your gown is okay – if you plan to keep your dress. If not, DIY a dress charm with symbols that are special to you and your spouse-to-be. After the big day, it’s a keepsake you can actually keep with you.

wedding matches DIY old fashioned

Super traditional and not at all trendy, wedding matches are making a modest comeback as favors your guests will actually use.

wedding video booth guestbook

And finally, the wedding photobooth is super played out but still a big hit because, well, it’s fun! You can take the idea to the next level with a video wedding guestbook that will be fun to watch for years to come.

What are you doing at your wedding that WE won’t be seeing at any of the weddings we attend next year?
