However you want to personalise your wedding, it makes sense to take a look at some of the latest wedding trends. Choosing your favourite elements from these will ensure that your wedding ceremony and reception feels bang up to date with the guests, and provides some memorable photo opportunities.
When you’re looking at current trends for weddings, it’s all about the colours, the decor, the themes, the gown design and the modern twists on age-old traditions. You can find out what’s buzzing in the world of weddings by looking through bridal magazines, reading online blogs such as this, and having a glance at the preferences and ideas used by the rich and famous. But make sure you only pick the trends that you fall in love with, especially if you go for something avant garde, or else in future you might find yourself looking through the albums wondering what you were thinking!
What colour will ring the wedding bells in 2014?
Have you considered having your bridesmaids in blue? More and more brides are choosing blue for their accent colour in 2014, which makes for a more contemporary feel than the usual pastel and rose shades we’re used to. Cooler blue shades will look perfect for a spring wedding as you can see in these up-to-the-minute examples. 2014 Spring Wedding Colors & Trends Alternatively, for a softer or warmer blue range, check out these statement ideas for dressing your bridesmaids in style, Chic New Donna Morgan Bridesmaids Dresses For Spring 2014.
2014 – the year of the lace wedding gown
For a sensual and romantic idea for this year, why not have the bride and bridesmaids, as well as the mother of the bride all wearing lace? It can make a striking impact as well as a very feminine alternative to bolder satins and silks. You don’t need to have the whole dress in lace, but touches here and there will give the idea of a very contemporary design, perfect in photos set against the backdrop of our Tower Hill Barns venue.
