How to get married in 2015

Wedding pie, anyone?


New York wedding planner Fallon Carter has predicted the top 10 wedding trends for 2015. From the return of the veil and swapping your bridal bouquet for a far more practical wristlet, to controversial ‘man caves’, here's how it's done.

1.   Chandelier Cakes: That’s right, inverted cakes. We predict a structural nightmare – and tiers (sorry).

2.   Veils: Kim Kardashian had one, and she’s the hottest face on every FROW right now. Where Kim goes, brides follow.


3.   Cocktail receptions: Forget sit-down dinners. Who really cares about the food at weddings anyway? It’s all about the booze. And wolfing down canapés.

4.   Pies: Specifically fruit pies, in place of traditional wedding cake, but we wouldn’t say no to a giant pork pie and some piccalilli.

5.   Floral wristlets: Because let’s face it, bouquets are a bit of a pain, and you’re forever palming them off on some poor bridesmaid while you try to neck a glass of champagne/pose for photos/chat to granny. Wristlets are practical and pretty.

6.   Temporary tattoos: Yes, really, temporary tattoos are the hot new wedding favour. Fun and creative. And guaranteed to end up on the best man’s face.

7.   Man caves: Sadly, man caves are a thing; an area where the groom can retreat with his bros with bourbon and cigars. We say: we’re going to make feminist grottos ‘a thing’.

8.   Personal branding: Custom monograms, logos and hashtags are the way forward. Trust us, ELLE digital guru Leisa Millar had one for her wedding.

9.   Food trucks: Essential if all you’re providing your guests with is canapés.

10. Aerial photography: Because every couple can afford a helicopter, right?
