Top 10 Wedding Trends of 2014
Everyone wants his or her wedding to be a day to remember – not only for him or her, but also for their guests. From the planning to the final execution, most brides are thinking “what can I do to make this the best day possible?”. 2014 has brought about a lot of creative, fun, and memorable trends that are worth a read and serve as awesome additions to your wedding day.
- Unique Ceremony Time
Many couples are choosing to start their ceremony at a unique time. For example 2:14 or 3:38. This time can just be for the sake of being creative, but can also be a combo of the bride or groom’s favorite number, the date they met, or any other memorable numbers.
- Koozie Wedding Favors
Everyone dreads trying to decide what favor to get your guests for attending your big day. One great idea is to get koozies with the wedding date, a funny saying, or just a color coordinated pattern. Everyone uses koozies and it’s an easy and inexpensive way for your wedding guests to remember your day well after it’s over.
- Candy Tables
Candy table additions to your reception are a wonderful way to provide that late night snack, or just another beautiful decoration for the party. Cute monogramed bags and festive treats are a great way to show your guests your personality, and also give them a little extra treat to fuel up for the dance floor.
- Coke Bottle Table Settings
Coke recently started putting names on their product bottles. You are able to order these online and they serve as a unique and fun way to set table assignments. It also doubles as a souvenir for your guests and adds to the personal touch of the day.
- Casual Groom Look
Many grooms are opting for a more casual and individual look for the big day. You see more and more grooms wearing vests, bow ties, and suits as alternative options to the more traditional tuxedo look.
- Fun Socks
Argyle, colorful, stripes, and paisley are amongst the many fun socks that grooms are getting for their groomsmen. They won’t show unless you want them to, but make for excellent photos and perfect color coordination to the bridesmaids dress and wedding colors.
Many brides are ditching the large (and expensive) wedding cake, for individualized cupcakes. These can be arranged in a way that they look like a cake, but are easy to serve and make a wonderful decoration.
- Photo Booths
Who doesn’t love photo booths? Photo booths give the bride and groom another set of funny and silly pictures to look at for years to come. They are also fun for the guests, big and small, and offer a source of entertainment for them as they wait for the bride and groom to arrive.
- Sparkler Filled Goodbyes
Gone are the days of rice and bubbles. Many couples are choosing to have everyone bid them goodbye with bright sparklers. Given many brides and grooms leave after it’s dark outside, having sparklers is a fun and easy way to have your guest send you off as a married couple.
- Goodies in the Reception Bathroom
Last, but certainly not least, we’re seeing a lot of 2014 brides decorate the reception bathrooms with baskets of mint, toothbrushes, small sewing kits, chap stick, and the works. This is a fun detail to incorporate that your guest will surly not miss (or appreciate)!
