From Marriage Proposal Generators to Youthful Bridal Couture

A look at the top 2015 wedding trends reveals that today's modern couples seem to value both customization and as much assistance as possible when planning a wedding. This can be seen in everything from online tools that generate ideas for marriage proposals to survival kits for bachelorette parties.

A desire for all things tailored is being answered with services that create bespoke bridal gowns, personalized weddings shoes for women and even metalwork classes where couples can make their own sets of matching wedding bands.

Over the past year, one of the biggest developments in the wedding industry was IKEA announcing an Online Wedding service that makes it possible for people to virtually—but officially—get married over the web with friends and family in attendance. Other quirky new offerings include karaoke pop-up stations where Japanese women can gather with friends and dress up as though they're all in a wedding party, and the Hotel Epinard Nasu renting out alpacas for wedding services.

Beyond weddings, the 2016 Trend Report from Trend Hunter also dives into high-level patterns emerging in a variety of topics from dating and romance to couples, family and lifestyle.
