Must-have footwear for every spring bride in 2014!
- Colored shoes with bows
Spring has never been more vibrant, zesty, or vivacious. Spring has also never been so subtle, so muted, and so elegant. The wedding trends for spring 2014 are dictated to be the perfect mesh of shout-it-out-loud-sunniness and keep-it-simple-sweetheart colors and décor. Bridal wear, on the other hand, has decided to make up for the supposed simplicity by adapting kinda
unorthodox styles and patterns. Wedessence has the scoop on what's brewing in the wedding circuit this spring.Index
Like every year, Pantone has declared the color that will define every season's trends. For spring 2014, it has anointed some of the most uncanny colors to ensure that they see the light of day. From explosions of brights to subtleness of neutrals, this spring is going to have it all.
Here's a look at the colors that are going to be the rage in the wedding scene, this spring.
It only makes sense to begin with the Color of the Year, doesn't it? We love the richness of radiant orchid. It can up the luxury quotient of a wedding in a jiffy!
Dazzling blue is the Pantone Spring Color for 2014. Try to incorporate not just hints, but oodles of this electrifying color in your wedding for that glamorous appeal.
Here's another bright color to celebrate the flavor of spring. Orange in its most vibrant shade, when coupled with a classic neutral like white can liven up a wedding like nobody's business.
Some say sunny yellow, some say yolk yellow. We say no matter what you call it, there's no way you canNOT use a color as fun and inviting as freesia in your wedding.
With subtle hints of violet and not-so-subtle hints of lavender, this color is stealing many a bride's heart. It has just the right amount of elegance and punch.
If you thought it was impossible to use a color as dull as gray in a wedding, draw some inspiration from the images here. They're chic and graceful, much like the bride you'll be.
Not many would think a wedding can pull off a color as cheerless as sand. But look how beautifully it's proven all of them (alright, us) wrong.
One of the classic favorites when it comes to selecting a neutral that isn't too dry and lusterless is a shade of mint. We love how harmoniously everything just falls into place here.
This dull version of blue has found its calling this spring. It's a smack in the face for those who considered it a color fit only for baby showers. Just look how pretty!
Here Comes the Bride
The sweetheart neckline is back and so are vintage-style fits. As for other bridal trends this spring, they are a mix of classic modesty and modern chicness. From the layered wonders by Amsale to the sleek overlays by Carolina Herrera, there's so much variety for the spring bride that she's going to be spoiled for choice.
Here are our versions of what a spring bride ought to wear.
This year, it's all about the delicate detail on your dress. Whether it's sequins, lace, rhinestones, or beads, your dress isn't complete unless it's encrusted with some sparkle or trim.

While most brides would want their dresses to have a long and luxurious train, a practical bride can take inspiration from this sleek number for a modern and voguish look.
Style Cue: Monique Lhuillier
Lace is back! And how! A majority of designers and houses incorporated lace into their spring bridal wear this year. But the most common trend, even within the trend, was lace sleeves.
Style Cue: Oscar de la Renta
While most past trends have concentrated on the top and skirt of the wedding dress, this year, the back of the dress gets to celebrate its time in the limelight!

If you thought layered dresses could only make you look like a puffy princess, think again. This spring, flowy, sheer layers are all the rage.
Style Cue: Amsale
It's the return of the retro. Give yourself a pin-up look with a short, above-the-knee dress that lets you flaunt those gorgeous peep-toes in style!
Style Cue: Marchesa
If there's one designer who can take something as somber as black and turn it into a wedding trend (of all things), it's Vera Wang. Watch out for her black-splashed dresses.
