Dear Mr. and Mrs. 2014,

Your future holds a wedding filled with fabulous trends. Details such as the dress, the decor, the menu; here are a few ideas that you can incorporate into your special day.

The Gorgeous Gown

Gowns in 2014 will take on an extremely romantic and unique feel. Long lace sleeves and dramatic backs give the perfect combination of beautiful, sophisticated, and sexy in one dress. Pictured below are a Julie Vino gown and Galia Lahav gown.

A Pop of Color…and Sparkle

Make sure to pack for all types of weather this year, the clouds are bringing in some shades of blue, pops of color, and slight showers of sparkle through our Southern California venues. Below are some color combinations that you will see this year.

Here is a new way to incorporate your ‘something blue’.

Want your bridesmaids to choose their own dresses? A little variation in the dress hue is perfectly fine! Various shades of blue work especially well together.

Action Stations

Lets face it we all love and look forward to good food! Action stations or interactive food stations are a creative way to enjoy your meal in more than one way and a fantastic alternative to the traditional buffet line. We love this fresh and entertaining idea and can’t wait to see more of this. One of our favorite new actions stations is this Paella Station created by Room Forty.

Tapas Style & Small bite Reception Dinners

Tapas style reception dinners are another menu trend that we are going to see more and more of in 2014. These small bites can be tray passed, plated or served family style. This allows your guests to enjoy a little bit of everything. For a more casual dining experience you might try mini gourmet sliders or even add an elegant touch with fresh ravioli or gazpacho shots.

Creative Lighting

Lighting is going to steal the show when it comes to decorating your wedding space this year! There are so many ways to light up a room. Lighting can completely change the atmosphere of a room from a romantic setting to a dance party. In 2014, we will see lighting used in unique and beautiful ways, giving life to any space.
