You don’t have to spend your life savings on a champagne fountain at your wedding. Instead, people are going back to basics with natural makeup and venues, and focusing on making meaningful memories with loved ones. Here are some of the top trends to help you get the party started.


This year, comfort is key. For a little extra coverage, women are turning to high necklines  (+351%) and toppers like boleros (+163%). Meanwhile, jumpsuits (+178%), sleeves (+75%) and flats (+119%) are making it easy to dance like all of your friends and family are watching.

It’s your day, do it your way! If white isn’t your color (nobody’s immune from a red wine spill, not even a bride), try a rose (+46%) or champagne dress (+358%). And if you’re not really a veil person, throw on a cape (+88%). For jewelry, minimalist backdrop necklaces (+207%) are a great way to add some unexpected charm.

Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the guys. With dapper tweed suits (+165%) and laid-back tie-free ensembles (+459%), grooms are getting the chance to show off a bit more personality.

Something old, something new, something borrowed...something on the shoe? Leave a note (+58%) on your future spouse’s shoes for a sweet surprise.
