Many thanks to our friends at Méldeen for asking us to share our findings on the wedding trends we’re seeing for fall 2014. We would love to not only hear back from you on any others we might have not mentioned, but which are your favorites!
BACK TO NATURE
We are seeing a movement toward nature in simple modern forms. Beach inspired furniture and decor are making waves on the event scene. Think rattan, neutral earthy colors, woven stools and baskets, dried coral, puka shell chandeliers, driftwood and giant clam shell planters. Foraged plants and branches with lush, leafy greens are extremely popular as well and are popping up everywhere from tabletop and cakes to arbors and ceremony aisles.

A huge trend for Fall is luxe bohemian. We are able to achieve this classic free-spirited look is through lots of texture and layering of ethnic prints and textiles. Turkish rugs and pillows, African printed fabrics, Moroccan styled furniture and colorful Indian kantha have proven to be a great way to warm up any space all while providing the perfect touch of eclectic elegance.
Indigo has been hot for some time now, but there is no sign of it dying down anytime soon. We are seeing a plethora of shibori dyed textiles and vintage batik indigo textiles throughout the event scene. We love the bold earthiness this color provides and how well it lends itself to the lush greenery/nature trend.
This trend is also here to stay for a while. We have seen it evolve from silver to gold to brass and now to copper. We also expect to see more of a mash-up of all these different metallics together this Fall. Don’t be afraid to mix and match!

BLACK AND WHITE
Simple, modern, bold and edgy all at the same time. We love how an elegant black/white stripe can work well with mixed patterns and bright colors, or just stand alone to create an equally dramatic scene. Adding the lushness of bold greenery creates classic beauty. The versatility of the black and white pairing lends itself to wonderful possibilities.
Thanks again, Meldeen, for allowing us to share our thoughts and we are looking forward to seeing some awesome gatherings including these trends this Fall! Cheers!
