Wondering what’s coming up in the world of weddings, looking for new ideas for your wedding, wanting to see what’s on trend and what we will all be seeing more of this year?


From woodland wedding themes to flower crowns and the use of social media, here’s ‘The Top 10 Wedding Trends For 2014’ to inspire you and your big day… 


Destination days


According to a report published in 2013 by LV= travel insurance, one in six married British couples tied the knot abroad in the past five years, which is an increase of almost 20% compared to a decade ago. That’s a whole lot of wanderlust weddings!


Many couples are seeking guaranteed sunshine (or snow), or a more unique wedding experience, others are lured by the temptation of a more cost effective big day, or the appeal of a less complicated and scaled down wedding.


If you’re looking for some inspiration for getting married abroad, take a look at these Destination Guides for the who, what, when, where and how to getting married in locations such as the island of Ibiza, New York City, Morocco or beautiful Bali!

Go social


Social media continues to play a key role in weddings. From planning and inspiration via the plentiful supply of pretty pictures on Pinterest, to creating personalised hashtags for guests to tag their Instagram and Twitter posts, social is here to stay for your big day.


Let guests who can’t make it to your nuptials aware of your wedding hashtag, they can then follow updates and share in the joy of the day as it happens.
