weddingwednesday

Last week, we talked about popping the question and we had a lot of great responses to that post! Thank you all for reading and getting involved in our posts. We want to post ideas and articles that are relevant to you, so we encourage you to leave your thoughts and questions in the comment section below!

Today we are talking about Floral Trends, so this is kind of a joint Wedding Wednesday and Wedding Trend post in one.

While there are an unlimited number of options for decorating venues, floral arrangements can really set the tone for the entire event. The trending color in 2013 was green and many couples incorporated various shades of green through their floral arrangements. We have discussed that 2014 will be the year of blue, so here are a few examples of ways to incorporate blue flowers during the different seasons:

1) Spring

Some great choices: Anemone, Delphinium, Hyacinth, Iris, Lilac, Peony, Allium, Hydrangea, Gerbera Daisy, and Pansies (to name a few)

2014 Wedding Trends- Colors

There are so many exciting trends headed to the wedding world in 2014 and we can’t wait to share them all with you! Today, however, we want to focus on the cornerstone of trends, which are the colors.

This season, we have seen blue growing in popularity. Blue is the “color of trust”, so it is no surprise couples love to work blue into their color palettes. In 2013, the shades of blue we have seen have been very light and airy to compliment the ever so popular vintage theme. Next season, however, deeper blues will be taking over in the form of midnight blue and royal blue.  A monochromatic deep blue theme will also be topping the trends list.

Blue is so trendy for next season, it is considered the new black of the menswear world. Many attribute the soaring popularity of blue menswear to the James Bond movie Skyfall that featured Bond himself in blue suits and tuxedos.

Warm-toned fall colors, such as yellow-undertoned reds, sunflower yellows, and tangerine, will be huge in 2014. Because of their warm undertones, the colors will easily be adapted for use during any season. Using any of these sunbaked colors will add warmth and depth to any color palette.

2014 will be the year of clashing colors and patterns, and simplest way to bring it all together is to utilize grey as an anchor color. Grey allows you to use bright pinks, warm reds, rusty yellows, carrot oranges, and deep greens, all together without it looking mismatched.

2013 showed some serious love for the avocado shade of green, and it will continue to maintain popularity going into the 2014 wedding season. What we love about avocado green is it’s rich and earthy tones- lending itself perfectly to the vintage theme that continue to gain in popularity in 2014. Mix avocado green with goldenrod and you have a very ethereal and rich color palette.
