2014 it is nearly upon us, Christmas will be here and over, and before you know it the wedding season will be back around (hoorah) and we will all be set with new wedding themes for a new year. Decided what look your wedding can take is a mightily hard thing to d: there are endless options out there, all with varying subjects and capabilities and cost! So as one wedding year closes and a new one opens – here’s what’s in store for 2014 for your wedding themes;
Being dramatic and statement
Swapping pastels for bold is a big step to make – brides and grooms who choose bold colours rather than sugary sweet colours like to do things in style, a dramatic theme is just for you! think unusual venues such as old churches, theatres, disused buildings that can be done up that show you statement features like high ceilings, striking windows, an open fire, slightly worn look and something in big bold colours. A gothic themed wedding is proving very popular, along with the more brightly themed, exotic looking weddings – both at opposite ends, but both as statement.
Doing something that is symbolic in your wedding can be a great added to touch to make your wedding just a little bit different. Some people light candles or pouring of sand is always an option – both are visually stunning for all the guests also. During a symbolic sand ceremony the bride and groom take it in turns to pour coloured sand into a keepsake glass vase in front of their loved ones to symbolise the joining of two people, two families joining together and the unity of everything coming together. This nice, simple ceremony can take place anywhere as long as you have permission from your venue – this can work great with a beach themed wedding.
Another nice, easy symbolic thing to do at a wedding is to get your guests to write a message of love on a Chinese lantern, then in turn all letting them float off into the night.
Quirky weddings are big big news even at the latter end of 2013. Whether it be novelty additions, or clever and stylish – you can add little quirky details or really go wild with a completely unusual theme to reflect your personal style: whether it be vintage, 1920’s or rock n roll. Some people even theme their weddings on books and films, such as Alice in Wonderland.
Choosing a quirky venue is an easy way to make your wedding a little bit different and certainly memorable – think football pitches, a zoo, Hard rock café in London, various farms! Or if a different venue isn’t your thing, how about an open-top bus to transport your guests. Or if something so big isn’t your thing, how about opting for a vibrant, quirky bridal shoe, a different headdress, or personalised signs to direct people around your wedding – there are many different options to make your wedding a little more quirky.
And no, we don’t mean the colour! Green weddings are the latest trend, and it doesn’t have to be for ethical or political reasons either. A natural wedding theme, with its warm and friendly rustic country look can be eco-friendly as well uber stylish, whether you get married outdoors in a ose garden or bluebell field, or in a barn for the colder months – the backdrop of this style of wedding can look absolutely beautiful.
Using Organic materials in your wedding is a great way to make your wedding completely organic! Using material for bridal outfits and table linens, and organic, locally sourced food is a really nice addition and normally make for some really tasty food. Finally, cover the ground with delicate rose petals for the ultimate finishing touch to an organic themed wedding.
