2014 is going to be all about Romance, Rustic and Radiant Orchid! The great news is that these design elements can span across the entire color wheel from light romantic colors to bold jewel tones so 2014 is going to be an eye-catching and fun year to design your wedding!  Here are the tips and trends I designed and shared on NBC’s Daytime Morning Show.  Find even more inspirations on my pinterest page at:

Rustic  –  What I like to call Rustic-Glam!  A beautiful mix of natural elements, wood furniture and plush chairs mixed with metallics, mercury glass and crystal to add a touch of upscale glam!


Radiant Orchid  –  Pantone selected Radiant Orchid as “the” color for 2014 and it will definitely be a primary design color for weddings this year.  The Good News is that if the true Radiant Orchid color is a bit too bold for your taste, you can still be on trend by using varying shades of the color from a light lavender to a deep purple to a fuschia pink… You don’t have to go all in with the color to be right on trend for 2014!


Invitations  –  Couture Invitations set the tone for your wedding and give guests a taste of what is to come.  Some gorgeous trends will be:

Blush and Lace over Pink Suede

Lace and French Romance

Bold Radiant Orchid with Lace

Rustic and Elegant Wood Engraved Invitations

Wedding Cakes will theme right into the design of romance and rustic-glam with options like:
