2014 Wedding Trends

As 2013 winds down, wedding designers are sharing their inspired visions for this year, including throwback wedding gowns, multifaceted centerpieces, modern weddings with metallic accents and rustic barn weddings with nature themes. You’ll find design ideas for the entire wedding spectrum, from simplistic and elegant to vintage glam. Wedding designers are adding creative flair to classic color palettes, mixing old with new in vintage color palettes, and making bold statements with modern color palettes. Designers are also exploring a plethora of ways to customize weddings so that each event is personalized.

Great Gatsby Glam Gowns

The roaring twenties are back! You’ll see statuesque column silhouettes with all-over beading made from pearls, sequins and crystals. Romantic cap sleeves, dramatic backless dresses and silvery metallic embellishments make glamorous statements. Designers are also exploring vintage inspired headpieces with and without a dramatic veil. For all things Gatsby-inspired, Anthropologie’s wedding collection, BHLDN, has intriciately beaded gowns and whimsical silhouettes that would make any one feel like they are right back in the 1920’s.

Rustic-Modern Barn Wedding

For 2014, wedding designers are embracing the romantic and naturalistic simplicity of Barn venues. You’ll see rustic and sophisticated centerpieces made from baskets and buckets filled with flowers, such as pure white tulips, or nests of twisted fern vines hugging a group of peonies. Natural accents like wiry branches embellish tables to convey the simple marvels of the great outdoors. The Rustic Folk Weddings website shows endless amounts of rustic inspiration, real weddings and inspiration boards to keep you entertained for days when it come to this theme.

Classic Wedding Colors for 2014

It seems that designers have conceived of every possible color palette imaginable for 2014, but classic color palettes continue to be popular. Designers are still in love with shades of pink, from brilliant pinks to blushes. Inspired designs include light pink wedding gowns and white gowns that fade into subtle pink shades. Exclusive to David’s Bridal, the White by Vera Wang collection includes a stunning pink ombre ball gown finished with an antique jeweled corsage at the hip. Another classic wedding theme is white-on-white, with a plethora of white flowers in every shape, size and texture framed by white vases and white runners.

Modern Color Palettes

For modern color palettes, designers are using bright colors and bold patterns. Check out our blog post for a round up of Pantone’s Spring 2014 Fashion Color Report to get an idea of what the hottest colors for this year will be. Designers have conceived of a spring wedding using bright pink, white and black colors with classic patterns, like damask and stripes. Also, stylists and designers alike are crazy about bright accent colors, like purple with lime or cherry with yellow. And when we say the color purple, we really mean the Radiant Orchid, which is the color of the year.

Vintage Color Palette

For a wintery vintage wedding that’s formal and chic, designers are in love with the ensemble of deep forest green, bronze and black. For fall weddings, rust, copper and aqua is a popular combo, and for warmer weather, seafoam green, mint and salmon pink are also recommended. Different shades of orange complimented by cream and steal work well for the summer. For an earthy outdoor wedding, mossy green with gray with touches of silver work well.

Customized Wedding Details

Every great wedding is in the details, and today it’s easier than ever to add custom details to each wedding so that it’s unique and personalized. Some personalized elements include photo collages and creative photo displays, videos and slideshows, and monograms and screen-printing on wedding objects. Marry Me Metro wedding blog has created a Pinterest board with an endless amount of personalized ideas for couples to implement into their wedding to create a unique experience for both them and their guests.
