Wedding Trends 2014 – Distracting Accents

Wedding Trends 2014 – Distracting Accents

This is one of those wedding trends for 2014 that has engendered more controversy than it has praise amongst the wedding fashionistas – there seemed to be a catwalk leaning in the recent wedding shows for accents and accessories to the wedding dress that really overshadow the dress itself, and in some cases, even putting the bride into the shade.

From feathered headdresses to ruffled capes, there was an abundance of statement pieces which in themselves add a touch of drama and there certainly seems to be a move towards individual and quirky touches in the wedding industry as a whole during 2014.  I love the thought of adding individual touches to wedding – at the beginning of this decade it did seem a struggle to find anything different at a wedding that really stamped the couples’ personalities on the day.  Pinterest is ironically hurting as much as it is helping with this state of affairs as everyone pins their individual wedding touches to their ‘Dream Wedding’ board and those unique touches are copied around until they are no more individual than the ubiquitous chocolate fountain (not that I don’t love a chocolate fountain as much as the next girl, don’t get me wrong there).

However, in the examples below, you have to say that you notice the accessory before you notice the bride.  Obviously catwalk shows are designed to push the boundaries and what filters down to the mainstream as a trend is really a version diluted to the taste of the everyday brides and grooms. All the same, despite ‘quirkiness’, ‘personality’ and ‘drama’ being the industry buzzwords for 2014, it would seem to a fine line to walk between ‘statement’ and ‘I just can’t take my eyes off it’.

About the Author:

I am a professional Creative ~ Photographer, Videographer, Cinematographer and Drone Pilot My professional photographic career started at the tender age of 13 when I won my first commission to photograph an art collection by a local artist. It paid £50 which was reasonable money for an ambition 13 year old in 1978. I have continued to take pictures ever since, and quite simply, I couldn’t be happier! I am professionally qualified with the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) and the Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers (SWPP), and also the Masters Photographer Association (MPA), although I have recently decided to give up my membership of the MPA in favour of the other two associations.
