Wedding Trends-Whats in Vogue for your nuptials

by emma 23. January 2014 11:59

2014 is the year of the celebrity wedding. Rosanna Davison and Wesley Quirke, Christine Bleakley and Frank Lampard and Aengus Mac Grianna and Terry Gill are just some of the famous couples set to make it official this year.
Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki are busy making plans of their own after the golfer got down on one knee on New Year's Eve. And that's not forgetting A-listers Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac and Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, all of whom are rumoured to be tying the knot in 2014.
Money will be no object as the celebrity couples become husband and wife in style.

While new figures show that Ireland's real-life lovebirds are counting their pennies a little more carefully these days - the average cost of a wedding is €17,750, €2,250 less than it was two years ago - they're sure to say 'I do' to some of the celeb wedding ideas too. From pink frocks to floral crowns, here we take a look at 2014's top 10 wedding trends for celebrities and civilians alike.

Blushing bride
Actress Kaley Cuoco certainly started 2014 off with a big bang when she wed tennis player Ryan Sweeting on New Year's Eve.

Swapping vows in a custom-made pink Vera Wang gown, the 28-year-old star of The Big Bang Theory looked every inch the blushing bride. Celeb designer Wang rocked New York Bridal Fashion Week recently with an all-pink collection.

And with Anne Hathaway, Jessica Biel and now Cuoco all thinking pink on their big day, the trend is sure to trickle down to main street too.

Flower power
Bridal floral crowns are set to rule in 2014. Peaches Geldof was ahead of the curve when she donned a daisy chain one on her big day back in 2012.

But she won't be the only grown-up flower girl as the boho-chic trend comes into full bloom this season. For a headpiece that would make Diarmuid Gavin proud, use real flowers such as roses and peonies. If money - or pollen - is a problem, then just go faux with silk or even paper posies.

Slap happy
Just like Mrs-to-be Kim Kardashian, 2014 brides are sure to look picture perfect on their big day. Groomed brows, smoky eyes and bright lips dominated the runway at Bridal Fashion Week. 'If you're planning a spring wedding, go for a soft winged black eyeliner with a dash of tangerine lipstick,' advises Deborah Leonard, beauty editor of Irish Wedding Diary and bridal make-up expert at Closer2Fabulous.ie.
'Keep the complexion peachy and the cheeks pinched with pink. I predict that Kim will go retro on her wedding day with an elegant cat liner and pop of colour on the lips.'
