The average wedding budget costs brides and grooms (and the parents of the bride and groom) $28,385. Plus, couples also spent an average of $1,184 on rehearsal dinners and $457 on morning-after wedding brunches. So how can you make sure you’re maximizing your budget for the happiest day of your life? Take advantage of the hottest 2015 wedding trends to get the most out of your wedding experience.

2015 Wedding Dress Trends
For Fall of 2015 especially, deep-V and halter top necklines are all over the latest bridal collections. And the operative word in that sentence is “deep,” like, really deep. And for brides that want to show off their shoulders, 2015’s latest crop of wedding dresses should be right up your alley. Feathers and fringes have also appeared in designer bridal collections this year. Plus, metallic colors have carried over from many 2014 collections.

2015 Wedding Trends — White Glove Affairs
Since at least 2010, casual wedding themes have reigned supreme, with laid-back wedding theme ideas like “Wild West” and “Rustic” topping many lists. Inventive guest entertainment options like photo booths and disposable cameras became standard at many receptions, replacing button-up events. This year, more brides are opting for white glove ceremonies and receptions, and so more traditional themes are making a comeback.

There’s nothing wrong with a casual, laid back wedding reception, but there’s nothing wrong with going formal for the most important day of your life, either.

For The Indecisive Bride — The Three Wedding Dresses Trend
If you’re incredibly indecisive (and you can afford it!), some 2015 brides are choosing NOT to find the absolutely perfect wedding dress. Instead, they find three dresses — a formal gown for the walk down the aisle, a thin sheath for the reception, and a fringe-covered or feathered dress for the after-party.

Of course, even if you just limit yourself to two dresses, wedding traditionalists might still think you’re overdoing it.

Gay Weddings
Now that the Supreme Court has legalized gay marriage in all 50 states, you might face some extra competition when trying to book wedding venues and vendors. Although certain liberal states have long been a destination for gay and lesbian couples, states that only recently started issuing same-sex marriage licenses will see a backlog in gay weddings in 2015 and 2016. So make sure you make reservations further in advance for the next few years.

Beautiful Wedding Places — Outdoor Weddings Still On The Rise
Although this trend usually peaks in the summer time, more and more brides and grooms choose to say “I Do” at an outdoor venue. In fact, Hudson Valley Weddings estimates that up to 35% of wedding ceremonies take place outside at romantic wedding places.

Ethnic-Inspired Wedding Brunches
Although pancake, bacon, and egg lovers might be disappointed, fusion cuisine is taking over brunch in 2015. As morning-after wedding brunches become standard at most weddings, brides are rushing to outdo each other with exciting new menus for wedding brunches.
