This time of year gets everybody talking about the coming trends for the New Year. What are the hottest colors for weddings? What will the bridesmaids be wearing? What will the florals look like? What will guests see when they walk into the venue?
If you know anything about us here at Krista Mason Photography, you’ll know that we are ALL ABOUT THE DETAILS!! Let’s talk about what all of the gorgeous brides-to-be will be pinning to their wedding Pinterest boards!
So many wedding planning decisions are on hold until the bride-to-be decides on her color scheme. Top of the list for color choices? Why, the color of the year – Pantone 15-0343 – Greenery, of course!
2. Bold and Bright
Wedding planners are also forecasting bright and bolder colors, like these featured in this colorful centerpiece!
3. Neutral tones with bright accents
Looking for something a little more subtle? How about dreamy palettes of greys, creams, and gold? How awesome are these pops of mustard yellow and rich plum as accent colors?
4. Black is chic
And one of the most chic of accent colors? Black – bet you didn’t see that one coming! Subtle black accents help round out the romantic florals and softer linens, adding the perfect balance between masculine and feminine.
5. Garden theme
Since Greenery was chosen as this year’s color of the year, it only seems logical to incorporate more greenery into your wedding design. This garden inspired wedding is so elegant and goes a long way toward adding a touch of nature to your big day.
6. Lush florals
While we’re talking about floral inspiration, you’ll want to ask your floral designer to come up with something more dramatic and artistic this season – something like this lush bouquet! So many gorgeous colors and textures!!
7. Unique Escort Cards
As a modern bride, you might be looking to stepping away from some of the more traditional wedding ideas. How about getting a little more creative with your escort cards? Like this travel inspired wedding reception!
8. Lounge areas
And while your guests are waiting to be seated, why not treat them to a cozy space that encourages your guests to mix and mingle, all the while creating a comfortable overall flow of your space.
9. Dessert displays
Dinner has been served, plates are being cleared, and now everyone’s sweet tooth is waking up. Guests can make their way over to your cleverly designed dessert stations and choose for themselves from any number of choices you may have waiting for them.

10. Art-inspired cakes
Considered to be the focal point of any wedding reception, the wedding cake is usually the pièces de ré·sis·tance. This year’s cakes promise to be almost too pretty to eat – well, almost! Like this geo inspired cake, just about anything can inspire your wedding cake design.
11. White bridesmaids dresses
Probably one of the harder decisions for the bride-to-be is finding a bridesmaid dress that matches your color scheme AND looks gorgeous and flatters all of her bridesmaids. Stress no more! The trend of the bride being the only one in white is out! Elegant and eye-catching, you’ll find beautiful bridesmaid dresses in many different shades and tones of white and cream.
12. Off-the-shoulder bridesmaid dresses
And the bride doesn’t have to be the only one with bare shoulders. Off-the-shoulder bridesmaid dresses add an element of elegance to everyone in the bridal party.
13. Boudoir sessions
Speaking of everyone in the bridal party, why not schedule a day of pampering for you and your girls and then end it with a boudoir shoot? It’s a super fun bonding experience with the bridesmaids and you have the added bonus of having beautiful, artistic, sexy photos to give your groom on your wedding day!
