Wedding Dresses for 2014

Now that 2014 is well underway we are looking to the future for this year’s hottest trends in wedding dress couture. Whether you plan on opting for a traditional look or are excited to go for something out of the box, these trends are definitely worthy of attention! Here are just some of the favorites we’ve seen so far:

 

Lace detail

Nothing screams feminine like a little bit of lace. This ultra girly look is the perfect trend to try if you are hoping to add a fresh spin on the classic wedding dress.

 

Shorter Lengths

Gone are the days when a bridal gown meant a stuffy ton of troublesome fabric. For those of you ladies loving the idea of a little less hassle, this trend is everything. Shorter length wedding dresses stormed the runways this season, and we think that this look is just heating up as we move our way toward spring.

 

Off White Huesblush

Is white simply not your color? Not to worry. Less traditional tones like bone and rose are making their way to the wedding world. If you’re bold enough to put the classic white gown to rest, we doubt you’ll regret how incredible and unique you feel!

 

Glam Shawls and Covered Shoulders

Barely there looks are officially being replaced! Right now delicately embellished shawls and shoulder covers are finishing wedding looks in the most beautiful way possible.  From dresses with sleeves to removable pieces, leaving a little more to the imagination is the hottest trend to try this season.

Long Island Locations for Every Bride

Regardless of your personal style, taste or budget Long Island is the perfect place for a wedding. From the changing of seasons to a variety of scenic views, there are few other locations with enough versatility to satisfy just about everyone. So, while a destination escape can be nice, here are some of our favorite types of ceremonies that can be had right here at home!

 

Glam Wedding

For some added spice to a traditional wedding ceremony, try visiting a large catering hall or country club. These types of locations will allow for you to create an atmosphere that dazzles. From color schemes to flower choice, these venues are blank canvases waiting to be painted for your special day.

 

Beach Vibes

If a picturesque view or nautical theme is something of interest, consider visiting a location on the water. Choosing a venue with oceanfront property will not only allow you to achieve the style of wedding you’re after, but also lead to some breathtaking photo opportunities!

 

Rustic Ceremony

Long Island is almost as rich in park landscapes and vineyards as it is in beaches. So, if a rustic style ceremony is for you, then be sure to check out these incredible options. While it may sound silly “barn-yard chic” is all the craze, and lucky for us Long Islanders the scenic escape of a woodsy getaway or romantic winery is right at our doorstep!

Super tight, elaborate hairstyles have officially been replaced. Although a clean and polished look is great, brides today are opting for more relaxed versions of the traditional up-do. Think bun with a bit of edge.

Wedding Trends for 2014

2014 might have started off on a chilly foot, but in the world of weddings things are just heating up. From settings and flowers to style and color themes, we are all about what’s hot for the year ahead, and if you’re a bride- to -be we’re sure you are too! So, for our first official blog post we’re diving in with some of our favorite trends to look out for while planning your dream ceremony.

Flowing Floral Arrangements

Gone are the days when stiff and stuffy displays made their way to the center of every table. This year loose arrangements packed full of super colorful, high texture flowers are replacing these outdated styles. Overflowing bouquets look natural, unique and add a touch of extravagance to any trip down the aisle.

Mismatched Bridesmaids

While matching bridesmaid’s dresses may have a classic appeal, they are becoming a thing of the past!  The pressure of finding a style and fit for multiple body types can not only be grueling but sometimes impossible, which is why we love this new take on bridal party attire. From varying shades to multiple cuts, this trend allows for uniformity with a twist.

Make way for Gray

No matter the season, a stunning gray hue can be a perfect addition for any wedding. As a neutral shade, gray allows for brides to play with flower and accent colors. Not to mention the understated elegance of a simple color ensures that wedding photos will look classic for decades to come. Other hot hues to consider for this year are pale pink and navy blue.

Statement Headwear

From dramatic veils to floral headpieces, hair looks this year are centered around this growing trend. Regardless of your personal style or budget, when it comes to this look there really is something for everyone!

Rustic Theme

Although a less formal theme is certainly not for everyone, when done appropriately, a “wooded wedding” can look both effortless and chic. From pinterest inspiration to celebrity nuptials, the refreshing simplicity of pastoral styles is becoming a craze for 2014. Opting for a relaxed dress code and unique flower arrangements is the name of the game for this trend, and it’s something to look into if you are hoping to stray from the norm!

These are just a few of the many great trends we are seeing for 2014 so far. What are some of your favorites?
