2015 has given us a multitude of new wedding trends...

1. Bridal selfie stick


Reem Acra raised the bar for bride’s best angles, intrudcing the ‘Bridal Selfie Stick’ at her fall 2016 bridal collection show. Because if there’s one thing brides need, it’s to be taking photos of themselves walking up the aisle.


2. Champagne Bongs

Want to feel classy but still get the job done? The ‘Chambong’ has you covered. Drink your Veuve twice as fast because, it is a wedding after all.

3. Fake weddings


Want the fun of the big day without any of the commitment? An Argentinian party planning company is offering couples, singletons or people who just like to party, the pleasure of the big day with none of the commitment.

4. Viral ceremonies


You’re nobody if your proposal, first dance, walk up the aisle hasn’t gone viral.

5. Proposing at another wedding


Apparently, this is a thing now. In May, an American couple came under fire for popping the question at the bride-to-be’s sister’s wedding. It turns out he had her blessing in advance, but still – give a girl 24 hours to herself.

6. Dog Weddings


These ceremonies are only half in jest, with genuine ‘how-to’ guides to throwing your canine the best bash possible available online. John Legend even performed at one (for charity).


7. Getting married on a train, after a marathon, etc.


Some multi-taskers just like to show off. One couple took a break from running the Chicago Marathon to get hitched (see viral wedding requirements above), another wed on a train, one in a McDonald’s. If you’re getting married in a church, on a beach or in your house, you’re just wasting everyone's time.
