The Hottest 2014 Wedding Trends Soft Pastels, Flower Crowns, and the Roaring Twenties
Recently engaged? The top web authorities on wedding planning recently released the top trends for 2014. Trends range from wedding color schemes (soft pastels are in!) to the year’s most popular themes, including ethereal and bohemian weddings. What do Bridal Guide and Elegant Wedding Invites have to say about the latest wedding trends?
Subtle Pastels Are a Big Hit
Pale pinks, nudes, peaches, and blushes will be all the rage in 2014. “It’s the nudes, the blushes, the peaches — not Pepto Bismol pink!” event designer behind ultra-luxe Soiree in Charleston and New York, Tara Guerard, tells Bridal Guide. Jessica Biel, who married Justin Timberlake in a soft pink gown just two years ago, may be partially responsible for the trend. “I wanted the dress to be very romantic and feminine and a shape that I very rarely wear. I have never been crazy about all-white wedding dresses, for me at least. [Giambattista Valli] …suggested pink. It was a bit of a leap of faith at the time, but it turned out better than I could have ever imagined. [Putting it on], I felt like I had made the right choice. I felt elegant. And it moved like a dream,” Biel says of her wedding dress in Elle magazine.
Bohemian or Roaring Twenties?
Many brides and grooms are sticking to tradition and opting for outdoor weddings. Outdoor wedding trends, however, are all over the place. Today’s brides may choose from laid back, bohemian themes — often starting off by renting simple tents. Couples decorate understated tents with sheer and/or tulle wedding linen rentals, strands of delicate, twinkling lights, and elaborate flower garlands. Brides and bridesmaids may loosely braid their hair or top off loose, flowing styles with crowns of flowers.
On the opposite side of the spectrum, many spouses to be are drawing inspiration from the Roaring Twenties. “Think white-gloved waiters and big band dancing, crystal candlesticks and gold-rimmed china. One major bridal inspiration for the return to tradition comes from Hollywood,” Bridal Guide reports. Wedding tent rentals are sophisticated and detailed; tent rentals for weddings may be decorated with regal, gold accents and all-white flowers.
