Bridal Trends 2014

by Chéri Marie

Hello lovely readers!
I’m so excited for the new year and a large part of that is because the trends for 2014 are so beautiful! I have big plans for my professional life this year and fashion everywhere is reflecting that beauty!

I’d love to share some upcoming trends that I’ve already been working with which are sure to make 2014 the best fashion year yet! I thought it would be fun to do a bridal post for all you lovelies because it’s so inspiring! 
1. Lace
Whether you opt for vintage or a modern lace, this trend is spot on to add flair, style, and drama to any dress. It may give you that added style that you need and want to look and feel your best on this most special day…


Plus, lace is always feminine and can conceal any part of you that you’d rather keep a little covered in photos that will be around forever 😉

2. Illusion Necklines and Backs
This is a popular trend this year! It allows you to showcase your best assets and give the illusion of concealing or adding to your figure. Always make sure you have a gown that showcases you and your shape in the best way possible! This is a fun trend!




3. Dramatic Shapes
Something we’ve been seeing on the runways for this season is definitely a flair for the dramatic! A very fashion forward bride may want to take this trend and make it her own;) A different shape or beautiful layers can give a very fresh, modern, stylish edge to a beautiful wedding dress. Love this!

What’s really nice about this trend is the layering aspect. You can have an added shawl or covering piece to detach for the ceremony and reception-Or it can be a dress that can be two pieces so it’s as if you have two dresses for the day. This is a fun trend that gives you a lot of options and can be tailored to your location and setting.

Traditional is always in style but 2014 is very fashion forward and brides are willing to take more risks to express their individuality and taste. I encourage brides to stay stylish but to stay true to themselves. Personally, my keywords are feminine, classy, and traditional. However, I know that not everyone is this way. It’s always best to stay on the classy side though, no matter what end of the spectrum you are on trends. 
4. Color
More than ever before, we are seeing a color trend for this season. Ask any bridal shop and they’ll tell you that sales are up for a splash of color! Of course, nothing will ever top traditional white, but sometimes going with cream or some blush color as an accent really highlights your skin tone. This is really trending!



So as you can see, these trends are making 2014 a very fashion forward delight! I love giving style advice! 



I will keep you all updated because this is all very exciting!

A special thank you to TLC network for seeking my consultation for their upcoming bridal shows this season. 
Stay beautiful and classy 😉
