We saw vintage take a step back from the limelight this year, but 2015 is going to welcome it back with wide-open arms. Designers have really homed in on the vintage look designing gowns with an abundance of jewels, lace and classic styling details. Be sure to decorate your tables with candles, frames and other finds from your local thrift shop for an amazing look that won’t cost you those hefty vintage prices.

Embrace the trees with a woodland wedding! It’s such a great place to wed due to its dark dramatic appearance. That doesn’t mean everything needs to look gloomy, just make sure you cleverly decorate the scene with light colors and choose a time that makes the most of your natural daylight. This theme can also be continued into your invitations, cake and favors, with the use of cute tree and bear motifs.

#4 Shabby Chic
For me this theme is perfect, I love to make and do everything on my own, however I just don’t have the patience to pay attention to every minor detail and soon get bored if a project takes up too much of my time. Shabby chic is exactly that, it’s about creating something that is half finished, worn and not in immaculate condition. I am so thankful that this theme is hot right now! Shabby Chic, Shabby Chic, Shabby Chic!!!
