If you’re anything like us, you can’t wait for another celebrity to get married. The celebrations are typically over the top and full of Pinterest-worthy details. Although they’re famous, there are many different ways that you can incorporate touches that they had at their weddings into your special day. From stunning wedding fashion to a unique spin on florals, we’re rounding up nine wedding trends inspired by recent celebrity weddings that you can recreate for your wedding!

Wedding Trends Inspired By Recent Celebrity Weddings

1. Dew Drop Veils

If you’ve been on social media at all in the past couple of weeks, you’ve probably seen Sofia Richie and Elliot Grainge’s wedding. It’s being considered the modern royal wedding–and it’s not hard to see why. Every aspect of the day was elegant. But what stands out most to us is Sophia’s custom Chanel dew drop veil. The water resin droplets sparkled as she walked, and to say we’re obsessed is an understatement.

2. Floating Outdoor Florals

We’ve seen a lot of weddings, which means we’ve seen a lot when it comes to florals. But Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams’ big day was complete with outdoor florals dripping from a large tree, and it’s such a fun spin on a traditional wedding decoration. It elevates the feel of the outdoors and would be the perfect option for anyone looking for a garden-themed wedding.

3. Embroidered Gloves

We’ve seen embroidered gloves for some time now. In fact, we listed them as one of the top trends for weddings in 2023. And we don’t see them going anywhere anytime soon. We have Nicola Peltz to thank for that. The best part about this bridal accessory is that it can be customized in so many different ways. Whether you want to include your new last name, your wedding date, or elegant flowers, the options are endless.

4. Colorful Reception Dress

If you’re not a fan of rocking a non-white wedding dress, but you still want to incorporate color into your wedding attire, consider wearing a colorful reception dress just like Alexandria Daddarios did at her New Orleans wedding. It’s an easy way to add some personality to your big day, and it gives you an excuse to rock two dresses. Who wouldn’t want that?

5. At-Home Weddings

Okay, we know what you’re probably thinking. An at-home wedding isn’t technically a trend. But we’re firm believers that it should be. If you don’t want to spend a lot on your wedding, or you just want to tie the knot somewhere sentimental, invite your closest loved ones over and host an intimate micro wedding at the place that means the most to you–just like Ariana Grande.

6. Patterned Wedding Gowns

For those who aren’t afraid of standing out on their wedding day, opt for a patterned dress like Sophia Bush’s. There are a variety of floral options out there that are still very bridal. They just add a little something extra.

7. Bridal Scarves/Capes

Want to feel like Grace Kelly? That’s what Anna Sophia Robb was aiming for when she chose her custom Danielle Frankel gown complete with a scarf. While we occasionally see capes (and we absolutely love them), a bridal scarf is a surefire way to take your bridal look to the next level.

8. Al Fresco Dinner Under A Canopy of Lights

If you’ve always dreamed of a romantic wedding that looks like it came straight out of a fairy tale, host your reception al fresco style under a canopy of lights. There’s nothing more enchanting than ending the night with those closest to you in the great outdoors, lit up by star-like lights.

9. Mirrored Ceremony Backdrop

You don’t have to be a music lover to appreciate the stunning mirrored ceremony backdrop that DJ Tiesto and his model wife Annika Backes had at their Amangiri wedding. It’s beautifully modern and fits almost every venue setting–especially the desert.

Warm And Inviting St. Vrain Winter Wedding

May 11, 2023 | kailey

Bill and Zach wanted a romantically charged celebration centered (literally) around what matters most–their love. What better way to achieve this than by saying ‘I do’ in the center of the room, surrounded by their nearest and dearest? By opting for circle seating, they created a feeling of intimacy and closeness, which was the very essence of their dream celebration. And with the help of planner Dotting the i, they pulled off the ultimate lovefest with a one-of-a-kind ceremony, a vibrant dance floor, and a modern industrial venue

Wanting a moody and dim-lit wedding space, The St. Vrain was an integral part of bringing their vision to life. Complete with exposed brick walls, wood ceiling trusses, and sparkling chandeliers, only minimal decor was needed beyond the existing features. To add an extra pop of personality, the couple used candles and rugs, which were later repurposed in their reception space. After their private vow reading and circular ceremony, the real party began when the guests hit the dance floor. The reception atmosphere was electric and, thanks to DJ TH Entertainment, was one of the most memorable parts of the night. 

From the unique twist on traditional ceremony seating to the luscious floral installations by Emma Lea Floral, photographer Mat Schramm Photography captured every detail that challenges traditional wedding standards. And lucky for you, you have full access to all the unconventional inspo that’ll make the perfect addition to your wedding mood board.

The Couple:

Bill and Zach

The Wedding:

The St. Vrain, Colorado, United States

Looking For A Sign To Have A Private Vow Reading? This Is It 

Before the ceremony, we did a private vow reading. It was just us and our photographer. We were both nervous to honestly and openly express ourselves in front of a large crowd, so we had an intimate moment to share those feelings with each other. This experience allowed us to be more vulnerable, creating a memory that we’ll never forget.

A Candle Unity Ceremony Completed This St. Vrain Winter Wedding 

We wanted the vibe of our St. Vrain winter wedding ceremony to be intimate and romantic. Candles, flowers, and loose greenery decorated the dimly lit space. A string quartet was playing some of our favorite classical and contemporary songs. And we kicked it all off with a candle unity ceremony where our guests were each given a candle. Next to us was a candle that represented our loved ones who couldn’t be with us. Using the flame of this candle, our parents lit theirs and began to pass the flame around the room until everyone’s candle was lit. Once surrounded by the love and light of our friends and family, we recited our vows and exchanged our rings.

A Dance Floor Guests Will Be Talking About This St. Vrain Winter Wedding Forever 

From the moment the wedding DJ opened up the dance floor, it was PACKED! We had so much fun dancing with our family and friends the entire night. Even after the wedding, we heard from many of our guests that it was the best dance floor they have ever experienced at a wedding.

Congratulations to Bill and Zach on their St. Vrain winter wedding. And big thanks to photographer Mat Schramm Photography for capturing this unconventional celebration that’s a perfect reminder to plan with purpose. 

As you kickstart your wedding planning journey, avoid just checking off boxes. Instead, plan with intentionality, only including elements that truly reflect the unique personalities of both you and your partner. By doing so, you’ll create a celebration that is authentically yours and will be remembered for years to come.

When you picture floral bridesmaid dresses, odds are your mind is immediately transported to spring. But that’s not always the case. No matter what season you tie the knot, the mismatched bridesmaid dress trend is a fun and creative way to add personality to your wedding party’s attire. Remember, it’s your wedding, your rules. And there’s no reason why floral patterns can’t be worn all year round. 

From the best places to shop to our must-know tips, here’s how to mix and match floral bridesmaid dresses for those getting married in the spring, summer, fall, or winter. Cue the inspiration.  

Tips For Rocking Floral Bridesmaid Dresses

Before we jump into our inspiration and shopping recommendations, we’re going to leave you with a few must-know tips that’ll help you pull off this stylish wedding trend. 

  • Before shopping, create a mood board and stick with it
  • Get your wedding party involved in the shopping experience 
  • Stick with one designer or brand to create a cohesive look 
  • Don’t underestimate the power bouquets will have on completing the look 

6 Ways To Wear Floral Bridesmaid Dresses All Year Round

1. Different Patterns, Same Color Palette 

Your wedding fashion should be a reflection of your personality. And if you’re not the traditional type and instead searching for ways to spice up your wedding day fashion choices, consider having each of your bridesmaids wear different printed dresses. Once you settle on a color palette, have your crew pick a variety of patterns that beautifully fit into your wedding vision

2. Same Pattern, Different Dress Styles 

If you’re going for a cohesive look, make a statement by having your wedding party rock the same floral pattern. You pick the pattern, but get your bridesmaids involved in selecting their dress style. From strapless floor-length gowns to halter midi dresses, there are endless options you can mix and match to add an extra pop of personality. 

If you have a large wedding party, including eight or more people, it might be overwhelming to have everyone dressed in the same bold dresses. Therefore, this is the perfect option for smaller, more intimate celebrations

3. Incorporate Both Solid and Patterned Dresses 

Solid color or patterned dresses—why settle for one when you could have the best of both worlds? Get creative with your wedding day fashion and experiment with various combinations. You can opt for dresses within the same color family, play around with different shades, or stick to your wedding color palette. Though it may require some extra coordination with your bridesmaids, the end result will be well worth it.

4. Pick A Neutral, Minimalist Floral Design

When it comes to floral patterns, vibrant colors aren’t the only option. And sometimes there truly is beauty in simplicity—especially when it comes to mixing your wedding day fashion. For a chic and sophisticated bridesmaid look, consider choosing dresses with a variety of neutral and minimalist floral designs. This understated style can be perfect for any season, adding a subtle pop of personality that’ll complement your overall wedding design.

5. Rock Warmer Colors In Chilly Months 

Florals aren’t just for spring. And if you’re throwing a fall or winter wedding, don’t limit yourself. If your wedding vision includes your wedding crew rocking floral bridesmaid dresses, experiment with warmer colors. Be bold and creative with your color choices to achieve a stunning and memorable look for your wedding party.

6. Play Around With Different Textures 

When we say “floral,” we aren’t just talking about the pattern. If you’re searching for a bridesmaid dress that’s subtle yet beautiful, consider opting for styles that feature intricate floral detailing woven into the fabric. These dresses go beyond the traditional floral pattern and add a unique touch to your wedding party’s attire. It’s the perfect option for those planning a winter wedding who want a dress that provides both warmth and elegance. Don’t be afraid to mix it up by adding jumpsuits as well.
