British Inspiration: The stylish details below bring to mind afternoon tea and garden parties. Tables are often uncovered or simply adorned with a vintage lace cloth. Lush garlands get turned into runners and loosely styled floral centerpieces hang from above.
Popular Floral Design: Garden roses, juliet roses, ￼peonies, hydrangeas, dahlias and ranunculus continue to be go-to favorites among brides. These flower are elegant but simply chic.

Greenery: We are seeing more and more greenery. Herbs like rosemary and mint, lemon leaf, magnolia leaf, and ivy. Greenery is being used as table runners or chair swags, to frame cocktail menus and to give vintage chandeliers a soft look.

Champagne fun: Champagne towers and bars have returned! A more casual, colorful option: mixing in fruit purées to create a signature cocktail that matches your color palette.
Cocktails: Craft beer; shots of different bourbons; wine samplings; sangria or soda bar; couples are letting guests sample their favorite drink or signature family beverage. These types of different drink stations are a great way to engage your guests
Guest interaction is a big goal for today's couples.
Just a taste: Tasting stations are a great way for couples to show off their favorite foods in manageable portions.
The Cake: Couples are choosing cake flavors that are rooted in their hometowns or family heritage, where they began dating or a favorite destination. A popular cake we will see more of in 2015 is the naked cake (pictured below).
Texture and more texture: Lace patterns, pleats, and textured material also remain strong trends for brides going for a vintage or soft, romantic feel. For a modern wedding, the texture might be a herringbone or other geometric pattern.
