Wedding Trends 2014

Beach weddings never go out of style, so naturally they appear on any preview of 2014's wedding trends. A beach wedding on Long Island in particular is an especially fitting theme for those who enjoy the area, from brides who love the sand between their toes to couples who met on the boardwalk or at the beach club. If you're planning a beach wedding on Long Island this year, make sure to check out our preview of the latest trends.

Lace Gowns

The bride's dress is arguably the most important visual aspect of any wedding. The right dress makes a statement and introduces you to married life with fashionable flair. The wedding trends of 2014 indicate that lace gowns with floral ornamentation will be a big hit this year. Accompanied by long wedding veils, these light and airy dresses are the perfect fit for those who embrace a natural life. A lovely flowing veil and breezy lacy gown will look and feel stunning at your beach wedding on Long Island.


If you're going to have a beach wedding on Long Island, you should absolutely take full advantage of the beautiful location. 2014's wedding trends include setting up a tent on the beach as an extra location to get drinks, take photos, or chat among the guests. Make the moment extra magical and string the tent with twinkle lights for an especially picturesque nighttime scene. You can also set up a small tent with a microphone for the emcee or anyone who wants to make a statement or give a toast.

Bursts of Color

The key element to this trend is to stick to a muted palette, such as the kind that naturally occurs in the outdoors at a beach wedding, and infuse it with only one bold color. You can make this happen effectively by working the color of your choice into larger details of the wedding that will be seen by all the guests, such as within the bouquet, as trim around the veil, or as frosting on the cake.

Which Colors?

According to the Pantone fashion color report for 2014, among the trending colors this year will be dazzling blue, great for a nautical themed beach wedding; hemlock, a good fit for a natural wedding with floral accents; celosia orange and freesia, both lovely complements to the neutrals of the outdoors; and sand, which is too perfect to even comment on.

Starfish Embellishments

One of the hottest wedding trends in 2014 entails taking something traditional and putting a unique spin on it. In the case of beach weddings, it's all about starfish embellishments. Use them to decorate the cake, line the aisle runner, and hang at the ends of chairs instead of the typical floral bouquets. If you create a bridal bouquet out of soft flower petals, starfish, and seashells, be careful when tossing it into the crowd! (Or don't toss it at all and create your own version of this classic tradition.) This interesting alternative to the standard flower bouquet is a lovely way to express yourself during your beach wedding on Long Island.

From decorative seashells to twinkling tents, our preview of 2014 wedding trends hits all the beach wedding sweet spots. Whether you're from Long Island or anywhere else in the country, a beach wedding can make for a wonderful event at a memorable location. With a perfect view of the ocean and a banquet hall fit for royalty, the Sands at Atlantic Beach is the venue for your beach wedding on Long Island.
