At this time of year, it’s always fun to look forward to the next year and keep your eyes peeled for wedding trends that are new and exciting. That’s exactly what my wedding colleague, Julianne Young, did recently. Thanks to Julianne of Julianne Young Weddings for sharing her projections for 2014 on the blog here today. Pop on over to Julianne’s 2014 Trends Pinterest Board for a closer look. Over to you Julianne…
1. Long Sleeved Wedding Gowns
Amsale, Monique, Vera… They’re all starting to feature long and lacy sleeves on the runway. These beautifully detailed gowns will be rocking the aisle next year to add an ultra-feminine appeal to your wedding.
2. Dramatic Veils
Time to brush up on blushers vs. birdcages! This trend is perfectly coupled with long sleeved wedding gowns, and again adds to that romantic and feminine look.
3. Vintage Illuminated Marquee Letters
This trend is a modern facelift for the traditional monogram letters in cursive (Not that I don’t still love those… But it doesn’t work for everyone!) Check out these bright and bold new letters…
4. Floral Crowns and Embelishments
Of course this is all the rage on Pinterest , however beautiful floral crowns and headpieces are not just for indie weddings and Boho Brides. This trend has taken a new, luxurious twist, and I love it how it adds a hint of glam to lace bridal gowns.
5. Parisian Inspired
If you’ve ever met me, you could probably imagine how enthused I am about this trend. Ornate, traditional, neo-classical… Words I love, and words Ill be using in next years client design concepts! Looks like I wont be the only one…
6. Blush & Nude Palettes
We started to see a rise in nude and blush towards the end of this year, not just in wedding decor, but bridal gowns as well. A word of advice, use a variety of shades and textures to make this design work – And to really hit it out of the park, pair with roses and peonies.
7. Cobalt/Navy Palettes
This trend particularly excites me – Blue used to be such a faux pas (…no thanks to artificially coloured blue dendrobium orchids…), and now shades of cobalt, sapphire and navy are taking centre stage. Cobalt bow ties, intricate white and blue painted china, elegant hydrangeas – There are many ways to use this stunning colour.
8. Styled Grooms
This whole ordeal is no longer just to please the bride. The dapper groom & groomsmen have arrived! Bow ties, matching socks, velvet lapels, styled boutonnieres, colourful pants and suits… The list goes on as our men are arriving in style!
Thanks for sharing Julianne!!
