@mousepeach:  Those sound like they’d make for great trends. I do love rose gold!

Art Deco has been a trend in bridal since 2011. Unfortunately because of the gatsby movie it will become more popular but it has always been a go to style. The style is not for everyone so I don’t really know how popular it will really become. We will see a lot of Art Deco inspired weddings I’m sure but I think it’s a little hard to go all out kind of like steam punk. Unless you’re an offbeat bride Ofc.

I think Gatsby is already a trend and sleeves are a classic dress detail (no idea about rings). These things seem to alternate between extremes: rustic country went to mod/chevron/super colorful, and now we’re back with a sophisticated, romantic, vintage style. I think the next big trend will be something modern again, perhaps more sleek, loft-style with minimalist decor. Just wait…the Knot 2014 cover will have ghost chairs, column gowns with no ruffles, and simple colors :p

I think for rings, more people are going to go towards coloured diamonds, like champagne or yellow and other coloured gems. I definitely agree with the rose gold, i think that will be a huge trend.

I also think we’re going to see huge amounts of lace and vintage styles. I also can see more sheath dresses.

Sleeves came heavy back on the scene thanks to Kate Middleton but they were already hitting a trend. Rose gold has been available in retail as far back as 2007/8… I’ve loved it since!!! Agree about the “Gatsby” trend but I do remember Tori Spelling having a similiar theme at her first wedding and that was a really long time ago. White gold to me, is classic. Just has in and out in popularity. 

 

Here are my guesses:

– Double or triple halos

– Light (but not white) colored diamonds

– Headpieces (pixie cut is new trend in Hollywood)

– Vamp Victorian (dark but romantic)

– Dressing down for weddings a la Kiera Knightly in something from one’s closet

– White Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, bride in ivory

– Smaller, more scaled back weddings

Ooo, fun. I’ll play. Completely off-the wall, no-hint-of-it-actually-happening-at-all predictions for trends in our daughter’s wedding years…

Rings: dark, brassy, yellow metal with tanzanite stones. The darker the color, the more envied the stone.
Dresses: Flowy, fluttery, elbow-length sleeves and tight mermaid-esque bottoms, except not flaring much at the knee – only flared enough to just barely walk yourself around
Theme: glittered jewel tones at midnight weddings

@aggie2010:  I’m actually writing a story about wedding planning (guess where I got the inspiration) and it’s SO fun coming up with crazy new (over-the-top) trends.

 

So far, I’ve come up with:

Rings: Pink stones with either yellow or white gold.

Dress styles: feathers.  lots and lots of feathers.  Also with more historical themes, going beyond art deco/generic “vintage” and going straight into Tudor-era territory.  The heavier and floofier, the better.

Accessories: masks.  They’re already popular for masquerade-themed weddings, but they’ll become popular for weddings with other themes as well.  Why not?  Also, shoes will become just as crazy as the dresses.  Or, conversely, they’ll be super plain and comfy because nobody’s going to care about them after seeing the dresses.

themes: “big city” themes (black/gold/3rd color, esp. jewel tones) or historical themes (like, heh, Tudors era) or something Asian-inspired like Japanese cherry blossoms (I’m going with all three in my story).
