Times are changing — and the 2014 wedding season is no exception. Last year’s trends — including rustic barnyard weddings — are slowly making their way out. This year, couples are saying “I do” and celebrating with family and friends in unique spaces and venues, bohemian fashion is working its way into ceremonies and receptions, and brides and grooms are adding elegance with gold and silver accents.
Step Out of the Box
The days of boring ol’ venues are over, The Denver Post reports. Brides and grooms are favoring unique, off-the-wall spaces to make it official. “Warehouses, rooftops, [and] vacation rental homes” are just a few new favorites. Ceremonies and/or receptions in breweries and restaurants are also gaining popularity. “Going nontraditional can reap financial benefits — such venues can be more affordable, especially if you book them before they get too popular,” The Denver Post continues.
Fantastical Woodland Weddings
Brides are transforming bohemian fashion trends into whimsical, woodsy weddings. Wedding tent rentals allow newly weds to stage ethereal receptions right in the middle of the woods. Decorate tent rentals for weddings with delicate string lights, chandeliers, or fit bulbs with unique paper or frosted glass globes. Keep in mind that, after committing to a tent, you may be able to get a significant discount on table linen rentals from the same company. Continue the mystical theme with wooden tables — or tables covered with plain white clothes — and topped off with tulle, or sheer, runners and similarly delicate fabric details.
Some couples, on the other hand, are going for another look altogether. The elegance and glamour of the 1920s is back in vogue. (Channel The Great Gatsby for inspiration!) Complement simple decorations with gold and silver accents. “It’s a move towards sophistication. For example, we’re planning an outdoor event right now, but there’s crystal on the table, and gold silverware and chargers,” San Francisco wedding planner tells The Bridal Guide.
Throw the trendiest wedding of 2014. Choose a nontraditional venue, put up wedding tent rentals in the woods for a wedding full of whimsy, or keep it cool and sophisticated with a 1920s theme. Find more: alliedpartyrentals.com
