2014 Wedding Trends

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Getting married this year? Here are just a few of the fun and exciting trends to look forward to in 2014!

The  Wedding Dress

This year’s wedding gowns arrive bedazzled in crystals, pearls, and other spectacular elements. “The Great Gatsby” inspired gowns from the 1920’s are also on trend this year.

Keeping with the “The Great Gatsby” inspiration, wedding planners say that lush, romantic weddings are on trend. Think romance and elegance when choosing your venue and décor.

Tip: Illuminated by candlelight, burlap and crystal are common accessories of wedding centerpieces this year.

Cuisine  

Going back to their heritage, chefs and caterers are seeing more requests for cuisine specific to the bride and grooms culture. At The King and Prince, native Southerners find comfort in the culinary offerings such as fresh seafood, Southern BBQ, or a low country boil!

Cake and Dessert

Even though cakes remain a standard, wedding caterers forecast that gluten sensitivities will put fresh fruit in the spotlight at the dessert table.

As  new trends turn up at wedding dessert stations, some national patissiers predict that cupcakes and doughnuts are becoming passé. Southern style mini biscuits, filled with fruit jam and whipped cream, are making a comeback.

Music

While some brides are aiming for the romantic elegance of the 1920’s, some brides aren’t looking quite that far back for inspiration. According to The Knot, the 90’s are back! They are predicting 90’s music, hip hop groups, or even break dancers at the reception so your guests can party like it’s 1999!

A Celebration

Once the vows have been exchanged, let the celebration begin. To keep the party abuzz beyond a one day affair, more elaborate wedding parties are extending the festivities over a course of several days, typically three. These multi-day nuptials involve activities that include the bride and groom’s guests. A ladies spa day, cooking classes, wine tastings, golf outings, and even boat tours represent a short list of things to keep the wedding celebration rolling.
