Top 5 Wedding Trends for 2014

Trends are part of every fashion & wedding season and are bound to be incorporated into you’re wedding day. I found a few in my research {to save you some time} that I wanted to share for the upcoming 2014 wedding season.

1. Unplugged Weddings
“Many couples don’t like the idea of guests attached to their phones throughout the ceremony and reception and are opting for unplugged weddings, a la Michael Jordan’s recent wedding in Palm Beach, Florida. From providing a phone check at the door to adding a note in their wedding websites or ceremony programs asking guests to refrain from taking photos or video, couples are stepping away from social media at their weddings.” ~Courtesy of TheKnot.com

I think this one is my all time favorite. I’ve noticed a lot of people being always connected with their social media & phones, that they are missing the celebration and the “moment”. I’ve made an effort at weddings, events & even sometime vacations to put my phone down and really take in the moments.

2. #SuperCharged Guests
“This is literally the opposite of the unplugged wedding. If brides want their guests capturing the entire wedding day via a custom hashtag, they’ll ensure their phones stay charged all night with charging stations at the reception. These chic charging stations don’t have to look like an airport kiosk; brides are dressing up tall cocktail tables with pretty linens and having florists create small flatbeds of roses or wheatgrass with little flowers and cords popping up.” ~Courtesy of TheKnot.com

Now, this one is a good idea if you or your guests really can’t put it away. Why not give them a place where they can recharge!

3. Patterns
“Pattern is making a new play but throw out the hard-edged looks. “Chevron was big last year,” says Tara, “but now I’m seeing trellis-patterns, bold stripes and florals.” ~Courtesy of Huffington Post

Yes, I love adding a little pattern or texture to an event to give it some dimension. I look forward to the stripes & trellis patterns! I’m definitely all done with the Chevron pattern.

4. Bright Colors
Besides Pantone’s 2014 color of the year, Radiant Orchid, there are other colors to choose from!
Color, color & more color! I love bright & dazzling colors that add a little something to your wedding colors.

5. Dresses
Lace, plunging back line, romantic pink shades, classic style looks are definitely in. Images courtesy of Pinterest

I just love the classic look of this one. A little lace & some sparkle all rolled into one!

Definitely a plunging back line on this one!

Looking for a little color in this one if you really want to be different!

Simple, clean, very Audrey Hepburn look for this one.

I hope this gave you some ideas of whats trending this wedding season!

Styled Shoot Happening Monday!

Happy Friday!

Wow, where the heck did the time go! Thanksgiving has come & gone and I definitely took the time to be thankful for the amazing year I’ve been having! Christmas is coming fast & furious and yelp, I haven’t event started my shopping yet! Thank goodness there’s not much to do that I can bang most of it out in a few hours!
Anyhoo, I’m so excited that my styled shoot with the amazing Famous Inked Model, Sarah Maillet, is happening on MONDAY {December 9th}! 
Thank you Russ Mezinkofsky for the amazing pictures of her!!
To give you a little teaser about what its all about …I styled the shoot with her specifically in mind {thank god she said yes!} and it will be edgy, unique & classically romantic with the colors red, black, silver & purple being involved.  
I’m working with a fabulous team of vendors who are just as excited about it happening as me! What more could a girl ask for than to be surrounded by all that positive energy!
Stay tuned for pictures….
Have a fabulous weekend!
~Cheers!
