INSIDE THE WEDDING: Favourite 2014 Wedding Trends Part 1

Guest blogger Stephanie Mosher of Glass Slipper Event Planning is sharing her favorite wedding trends for 2014 on our blog today. Stay tuned for another fab 5 trends for your special day!

It’s wedding season and I’m excited about some of the trends for 2014!
Planning your wedding? Well take note of these popular trends, as these are ones that I think will stand the test of time not just one season! Here are 5 of my top 10 favourite wedding trends for 2014.

Blush, pale peach and nudes are so popular this year! This colour palette adds a feminine, romantic touch! It works well paired with other neutral colours like cream or ivory as well as gold. Mix it up by adding a bold colour like navy into your colour scheme.

Whether it be your bridesmaids dresses or your table décor such as vintage vases or tea cups, mix & match is in for 2014. Say goodbye to the “matchy matchy” and stop worrying if everything is the same shade. Bridesmaids dresses look great in different shades creating an ombre effect or allowing bridesmaids to pick a style of dress that compliments their body type and mason jars or vases of varying sizes and styles create a cute DIY feel.

The photo booth is nothing new but at a recent wedding I coordinated, they had a slow motion photo booth! It was busy all night! Guests were returning covered in glitter and silly string and having a great time! The video makes a great keep sake for the couple and hilarious shots of all your guests! The standard photo booth is also evolving with more DIY props and chalkboard signs.

Who doesn’t love a hashtag? However, a trend I am seeing more and more is the “unplugged wedding”,  #putyourphoneaway, where couples are asking guests to check there smartphones at the door (sometimes, literally!).  Let’s face it, you hired a photographer for a reason so let them capture those images of your special day just make sure to let guests know of your wishes and make it easy for them to access pictures of your big day afterwards. 

“Some girls are born with glitter in their veins”
Metallics and glitter can add a fun pop to a neutral palette and look great with dark colours as well like black or navy.  Incorporate sparkle in your wedding gown,  accessories or table décor such as your number numbers, vases or candles. My top favourite metallic items are mercury vases or candle holders and many decorators are now offering a sparkly sequin table runners or chair sashes! Be careful how much you add though, it doesn’t need to look like Tinkerbell danced across your table. A little glitter or gold can go a long way!
