The hottest wedding trends of 2014 are in. According to The Knot, one of the most popular trends of the year will be ethereal woodland weddings. From outdoor venues with wistful decorations to brides and bridesmaids with loose braids and flower crowns, laid back — and fanciful — woodsy weddings are all the rage this year. Want to plan your own woodland wedding? Here are some ideas to get you started:
Outdoor Ceremonies and Receptions 101
Couples need to carefully plan for ceremonies and receptions in all kinds of weather. Wedding tent rentals, for example, will keep guests comfortable and dry — on hot summer days, or even if it rains. Wedding tent rentals can be as simple or elaborate as you like. To stay in line with an ethereal, woodland theme, keep tents simple and decorate liberally. “The big wedding theme this year looks rustic and natural with sophisticated, glam accents. So maybe the centerpieces are branchy and green with lots of lush flowers and a pop of sparkle with a sequin or faux fur table overlay,” The Knot recommends.
Other popular accents include sheer or tulle wedding linen rentals. Pair sheer, flowing fabric with rustic wooden chairs and tables to create a whimsical atmosphere. Keep the theme going by hanging flower garlands and illuminating tents with strands of delicate, twinkling lights.
Woodland Wedding Fashion Basics
“For fashion, long wedding veils and gowns with ethereal lace and floral embellishments are romantic ideas. Your bridesmaids can echo the look with sparkly, mismatched dresses and loose braids in their hair,” The Knot explains. Large flower hairpieces — or even flower crowns — are also popular this year.
Plan a woodsy wedding of your own. Keep guests comfortable with warm wedding tents. Dress tents up with tulle table linen rentals, flower garlands, and plenty of twinkling lights. Dress up your wedding party in loose fabrics and flower crowns to match the venue. More information like this.
