Another emerging wedding dress and bridal party trend is white and ecru dresses for brides and bridesmaids. This includes everyone wearing white (or the same color) as well as tonal colors, such as the bride in white and bridesmaids in ecru - or the reverse.

Another trend, which has been getting attention for quite awhile is rustic - from settings to decor to dresses. This is a big trend still, and lots of brides are waiting to get a chance to wear their cowboy boots and dance in the grass with their grooms.

Prints are another great trend that can work for mismatched bridesmaids dresses, accents and parts or all of the wedding dress or simply tablecloths for the reception. If you are a print lover, this may be the best season for indulging !! With a rustic barn or farm type reception, it would be hard to overdo the prints - although it's possible !

This rustic trend works well with another theme, the Retro 50's Garden Party, which would look great with print mismatched bridesmaid gowns and rustic or mid-century modern decor touches. It's a fun look to pair with colorful wedding dresses if you are a lover of pink or other colorful shades.

Another great trend is the French wedding - either a Paris inspired or a French Country look. These are great for adding in those romantic decor items you've wanted. With French country, you can also add a bit of the colorful table wear and mix it with some French linens and decor items for a wider look. This allows you the choice of adding the bistro or Paris-influenced style to the reception.This is a great choice for shorter wedding gowns and bridesmaids dresses.

Another trend that is big is variations on the wedding cake - from a tower of doughnuts to 'naked cakes', the wedding cake is seeing some new looks. Photobooths are favorites with wedding guests, allowing brides and grooms to get really fun pics of their friends in addition to the normal posed shots at weddings...which are seldom flattering.

To Recap: For Spring 2014, great bets are rustic and vintage inspired weddings with handmade touches, natural accents and cool pastel colors for attendants. Garden party looks with retro themes abound along with a continued focus on natural and handmade touches both in clothing and decor. Romantic touches include classic 50s glam looks like Grace Kelly and metallics in fashion and decor. Unexpected touches like photobooths, donut towers instead of cakes and unusual locations like Paris themed weddings make Spring 2014 a fun and inspiring wedding season.
