7 Wedding beauty trends for 2015

Before long we would have verge head first into 2015 and if you are engaged, this quite likely is the year of your wedding.
Whilst you might have be floating calmly in this year, thinking “oh, it’s still ages away”, now 2015 is here, a developing panic arises. This is the year you’re getting married, yes, MARRIED!
Have you got your very long list of things to do? Have you already ticked anything off?
Whilst wedding site can help you with the logistics of planning, as well as giving you a fantastic list and contacts of supplier sin your area, one aspect you can really have fun with is the beauty.
Here are the top trends to look out for in 2015:
Flower power
For any do, have you thought about decorating with flowers?
Delicate flowers such as baby breath, orchid and bellflower are the perfect decoration weaving in and out for elaborate do. Ideal for spring/summer weddings and those couples with a more relaxed, hippy outlook. This is definitely a style for the bohemian style wedding so if you’re after an elaborate and sleek updo, maybe steer clear! This is one for beachy waves and mellow vibes.
Over the past few years, wedding dresses have definitely taken a much more subdued effect. For example, the uncomfortable bodice has been replaced with flapper style fabrics with beautiful detailing. To suit this vintage style, hair and beauty has become understated and the effect is stunning.
Hair styling wise, we’ll see the low bun making a bit of a comeback after the romantic era of textured curls. This is so simple and really allows your dress to shine and jewellery to shine (literally).
Beauty-wise, less is always more, and in a wedding scenario it is so striking. Along with the minimalist low bun, your make-up can be toned down. Beautifully clear skin is a must for your big day so make sure you book yourself in for a facial and you’re the big day, apply a light brushing of pink or peachy blush depending on your skin tone.  
A coating of mascara and defined brow is all you need because the focus for 2015 will be the lips; a subtle coating of a pink is perfection.
Vamp it up
On the opposite end of the scale, if you’re seeking for originality and dare to break from the strong wedding conventions then a strong burgundy lip or smoky eye can really set yourself apart from the rest. Even a combination of the both, although delicately applied, would look incredible.
The vampy lips have been seen on many catwalks including the fantastic Naeem Khan and whilst this won’t be every bride-to-be’s cup of tea any shade of red would make a bold statement, and there is a shade for everyone out there.
Something blue
Not strictly beauty related, but blue wedding dresses have been a predicted trend for next year, and something that will mean one less tradition to find. Whether it’s a muted turquoise or eggshell, the blue symbolises that a brighter season is upon us and is so different too.
Paper for one year
Taking inspiration from the one year anniversary, the wedding catwalks have been full of origami style designs.
This is perfect for the bride and groom after a high class and formal affair, it is the perfect accompaniment to the shiny ballerina bun and simple yet sleek style fashion.
As well as your hair, you can have a paper theme running through with elaborately cut out centrepieces, lace table cloths and white intricate decorations.
Nude nails
Nude nails are perfect for any wedding scenario, but in terms of fashion trends for SS15? Well, they’ve been given a slight makeover in terms of design.
Using the nude shade as a base, the top coat can be subtly decorated. For example, the Monique Lhuillier show saw a wonderful splatter effect in white and silver that perfectly complemented the shimmering turquoise and cream gowns. The designs were edgy but not distracting.
Flashes of orange
Whether this is in the ceremony, the dress or the beauty, flashes of orange have much the same effect as blue; a bright and airy wedding for the new season.
Beauty wise, I love the peachy hue for the lips complete with a really subtle blusher. For the skin, this is one for matt skin rather than dewy, so do grab a decent cover up powder and keep near-by to top off. In fact, you can find some really brilliant ones that don’t cost an arm and a leg too. Check what’s out there with enough time to test before the big day.

Are you getting married in 2015?


  1. Stopping by from UK Bloggers FB Page, I love the flower power one, lovely and natural. I got married in 2010 and had quite a similar make up look, very natural and nothing dissimilar to my usual day to day (well then when i wore make up...now with 4 kids getting made up doesnt seem a priority in a morning!)

  2. The make up is pretty fab and you had me at origami.

  3. 2015 will be my 20th wedding anniversary! How did that happen?! Love the flower headband, but the makeup is just not my style at all. (Probably too old!!)

  4. I'm hoping my sister in law gets married next year. My daughter needs to be a bridesmaid!

  5. No weddings for us next year. I'm really not sure about the orange makeup!
