Wedding Trends

by Tanya Giraldo

Today's bride is leaning towards non-traditional in many aspects of her wedding. You can get as unique as you'd like, even down to the smallest detail. One tiny detail that has been changing is the wedding cake topper.

Instead of the classic bride and groom at the top of the wedding cake, brides are changing to a multitude of toppers to make their personality shine through. Some use coral as their topper to complete their beach wedding while others use bride and groom decorated cake pops. Whatever you decide for your topper, let it be a reflection of you and your future spouse to make your cake even more special. Check back with Wedding and Party Network for more wedding ideas and tips.

Non-Traditional Colors
Today’s brides are saying “I do!” in colors not typically seen in a traditional wedding. With Radiant Orchid recently announced as Pantone’s pick for 2014 Color of the Year, we suspect this vibrant shade of purple will be making waves in both the fashion world and upcoming weddings. So if you’re wanting a more captivating color palette for your wedding colors, incorporate playful colors like purple and pink into your bridal wardrobe.

Floral Headbands
Spring has sprung, and so has the popularity of floral headbands! So embrace spring by donning a lovely floral headband as you walk down the aisle. From big blooms to dainty crystals, adding that feminine flair to your wedding day look can be just what you need to demonstrate that love is abloom.

When it comes to wedding trends, we're seeing bright, colorful and glamorous. When planning your wedding, try to incorporate some of these wedding trends into your spring wedding and make it special.

A wedding theme can make your wedding personal and creative–especially if you incorporate it into the smallest detail. So, before finalizing your wedding flowers, consider making your man's boutonniere extra special by choosing a design based on your theme rather than your signature flower.

Choose light colored plants and incorporate twigs and burlap. Get creative with your theme and add it to the smallest detail.

One of the first things to decide on when beginning your wedding planning is choosing your colors. For this Inspirational Friday, Wedding and Party Network has the trending color of this season: mint.

The color mint became a popular wedding color within the past year due to its seasonal versatility. Usually paired with white, the color carries a direct link to the popular Tiffany & Co. shopping bags. Mint can be used as little accents, like candy,  or it can be used in your reception linens and as bridesmaid dresses. Consider the color mint for your wedding color.

Many modern brides have opted to change things up a bit when it comes to traditional wedding accessories. From ditching something blue to something red and choosing a hat instead of a veil, there is nothing a bride can't do. But what about that accessory that is normally flowers you hold down the aisle? That can change too! The Wedding and Party Network has the latest trends on alternative bouquets that is sure to add a unique touch to your special day look.

Burlap, Ribbon, and Silk Petals

Is your event more on the rustic and country side? Mixing burlap flowers with silk callas and ribbon roses will look great with your theme. Add some baby's breath and wrap with a lace bow.

Paper Flowers and Bead Embellishments

Put your crafting skills to the test and make your bouquet out of paper. Make them as simple or as intricate as you like. Add beads in the middle of your flowers as the buds. They will be unique and forever lasting.

Brooches with Pearl and Rhinestone Accents

Brooches have been the most popular alternative bouquet. Start your own collection of vintage brooches or borrow them from those you love, that way you have a little reminder of everyone as you prepare to walk down the aisle. Add pearls and rhinestones to give that baby's breath effect.

Whether you are a modern bride looking for unique ideas or a classic bride deciding on saving money, consider alternative bouquets that can be made out of materials that you have around your home.

Choosing your wedding gown is at the top of the list along with choosing a date and location, so it is only fitting that the search for the perfect dress starts ASAP. With tradition being updated to fit the modern bride, Wedding and Party Network brings you some inspiration for non-traditional wedding gowns.

Gowns with color are trending. Consider a white gown with a splash of color, a blush dress, or break all the rules and choose a red dress! Also consider an alternative skirt. From hi-lo to short to a lace layered skirt that contrasts a simple bodice, there is a dress that can reflect your individual style.

Even though summer has recently arrived, there is just enough time to plan for a white wedding and Wedding & Party Network has this year's most popular winter wedding trends.

Winter Wedding Colors

When brides think of a winter wedding, some may picture turquoise or light blues and silver while others go for the deep reds of Christmas. However, this year blushes of pink and tones of gold have been making their way onto the winter wedding color swatch. Consider neutral colors like greys and tans, and even pair some colors rarely seen during the season, like mint or deep purple, which  go well with neutrals.

Winter Flowers

Unless you are planning on having your wedding in the snow, bring the outdoors indoors by incorporating rustic plants along with your flowers. Holly and pine needles add to the winter theme of your wedding. You can also add these plants of the season with your reception arrangements. Baby's breath can be incorporated into all your arrangements due to its likeness to snowflakes; make your bouquet full of baby's breath and it will seem as if you are holding a bundle of snow.

Wedding Decor

Make your guests smile with a little taste of winter. Set up a hot chocolate bar with jars full of marshmallows and candy canes to stir. Add other drink options like coffee or hot tea for those who aren't fans of the sweet drink. Fill apothecary vases with marshmallows of different sizes, candy canes, and small chocolates. Both guests young and old will have fun making their wintry concoction and be grateful for the warm snack. This snack serves as both food and unique decor.


You can get really creative with themed goodies like gingerbread cookies for dessert and eggnog cocktails for adults. Add a twist to the famous chestnuts roasting by dipping chestnuts in chocolate and coating them with sprinkles in your wedding colors.


Anything from snowflake shaped sugar cookies to homemade hot cocoa mix can make great wedding favors for your guests. Something they would really appreciate are some gloves, mittens, or even blankets as favors, and don't wait until after the party to give them out. Have baskets filled with them near the entrance of your reception or by the hot cocoa bar. Give them a personal touch by engraving the guest's name or the wedding date. Every time they wear the gloves or cuddle with the blanket, they will have memories of the great day they shared with you.

Personalize your winter wedding with the season in mind. Check back with the Wedding & Party Network for more wedding tips and trends.
