2014 Wedding Trends

We’re not one to get into trends too much.  Your wedding should be a celebration of everything you love, not matter whether it’s “in” on not.  So, if we could think of another word for trend we would have!  Look at this post as a guide to show you what is becoming popular and how you can make these fabulous ideas your own.

Patterns & Prints

Patterns and prints made an impact in 2013 and will continue to make a statement next year.  Whether it’s pretty floral prints for a vintage styled wedding, or chevrons (zig zag) for a modern affair, patterns are an effective way to add personality to your stationary, fabrics and accessories.  Read here for more on chevron print or here for floral.

Lolly Buffets & Desert Bars

Lolly Buffets and Desert Bars are as popular as ever and are taking the place of bonbonniere and even wedding cake.  These can become a feature of your wedding and allow you to be really creative with decorations of the jars and bowls, stands, tags, ribbons and many other pretty details.

You can see how we can assist you with this by going to the lolly buffet section of our website here.  You can also see more images in our wedding gallery here.

Some couples are taking this to a whole new level with sticky sweet gelato  and even DIY crepe stations.  So, be adventurous and choose something that reflects your personality and tastes.

Cigar & Whisky Bar

This one is just for the grooms…well not really….everyone can enjoy it!  We have put our own twist on this trend and created The Groom Room, inspired by old world glamour and our love for all things 1950’s (especially the Mad Men series).  The lounge includes couches which can themed to suit the rest of your wedding decor, an antique gentlemans desk, crystal decanters and cigar boxes which you can fill.

You can see more information on our website here, or explore the wedding of Jessica & Doug or Chrissie & Lachie for more shots.

White Weddings

There is definitely a return to glamour and the classic white wedding….hurrah!  We are so excited to be styling some amazing white weddings in 2014…it can’t come quickly enough!  Create a timeless, glamourous look for your wedding that is stylish and sophisticated.  It can be simple with clean white lines or dramatic with large floral centrepieces and theatrical lighting affects.  Whatever your flavour, GLAMOUR IS BACK!

Marquee Weddings

Our own hot tip is Marquee Weddings.  More and more couples are looking for ways to personalise every detail of their wedding and there is no better way to do this than start with the pristine white space of a silk lined marquee.  If you find a property such as Polly’s Country Kitchen or Limpinwood Lodge, you can bring your own caterers, beverages, entertainment and have your celebration be exactly the way you want it.  You can read more about marquee weddings on a past blog post here.

We hope you have found this informative and it has inspired your own wedding dreams.  Email us if you need help!
