1920’s Style – The Great Gatsby

This is become a great trend for budding brides all around the world. With the release of The Great Gatsby soaring sky high at box office, the 1920’s lifestyle has become far more attractive to us. There is a touch of class that comes with this style of wedding, having everyone dressed to the nines and creating a dreamlike reception that everyone will enjoy. Going back in time is never a bad thing, this is the era that saw the first ever Academy Awards and the invention of bubble gum.

Geometric – Throwing Some Shapes

Geometry was never a strong point for many of us in school, but now we’re all a little older the idea of a geometric wedding has become somewhat intriguing. We’re used to weddings being quite soft and gentle but you can still create this illusion with geometric shapes. Geometric shapes are made with lines and are blocky, this means no curves and nothing round. So you could have a very square wedding cake, but it doesn’t look odd at all, it’s actually very stylish these days.

Woodland – The Great Outdoors

Even though Britain has been dubbed one of the wettest countries in the world, we do occasionally get the odd bit of sunshine. With the sunshine comes beautiful and stunning outdoor weddings in the sun. Woodland weddings work perfectly in the summer as you get the warmth of the sun but then the shade of the trees to stop you from getting burnt or heat exhaustion. It also gives you way more space to play with and also makes for some amazing photographs.

Quirky 1950’s – Cocktail Dresses at the Ready

Unlike the 1920’s style wedding, the 1950’s was a time with no less class but certainly more colour and shorter dresses. Instead of full length gowns you have gorgeous little cocktail dresses with hundreds of different patterns to choose from. This is also the time where rockabilly was popular, so polka dots with bright red lips were an absolute must. You can achieve this look with a vintage venue full of antiquities from the time.

Organic – Mother Nature of the Bride

More than just getting back to nature, organic weddings are a thing of beauty and a top trend in 2014. Recycling old clothes and furniture mixed with homemade outfits and furnishings made from natural materials. You don’t have to be a hippy to appreciate Mother Nature at her finest and you can create an amazing look for under half the price of the average wedding.
