     So you are planning a wedding this year. Why not make your wedding stand out by building it around a theme. Today we have a guest post from Traditons, who are guiding us through the top 5 2014 wedding theme trends and also giving us tips on how to achieve the look. So over to them for more…..

    Congratulations, you are engaged! So you’ve told your nearest and dearest the happy new’s and its time to get planning your special day. With so many different ideas and possibilities you will find out there its important to finalise a theme for your wedding. A theme helps you keep to a specific colour palette and style, you may not be one for a uniform wedding and to be honest themes like that are a little bit old hat so why not go for something a little bit more eccentric like a rustic or vintage theme, allowing you get your creative juices going.

    Trends and style go in and out of fashion so quickly that its great to keep on top of what is hot now. This is exactly what Traditions strive to achieve, we are also giving you ideas about the style of wedding dress that would suit a particular themed wedding, and showcasing the ‘razzle dazzle’ theme that is on trend this year.
