I can’t believe we are fast approaching the end of the year, looking back through 2014 there have been a fair amount of celebrity weddings this year, all quite different but with lots of steal-able ideas and dress inspiration. When it comes to dresses the stand out contributors have to be Angelina Jolie-Pitt’s family orientated doodled dress, a beautiful simple satin front and then embroidered with family doodles on the veil and back. Lots of brides have their own dresses made so as long as you find a trusted seamstress this is something the ordinary bride could achieve. I loved the sentiment of making their wedding something that included the whole family and the children being part of the ceremony as cake makers, ring bearers and bridesmaids.
Piper Perabo and Jessica Simpson went for sparkling numbers, Piper also opting for a yellow veil which worked perfectly with the dress and certainly stood out as different. Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting kept the coloured dress a popular option following in the footsteps of Jessica Biel and Gwen Stefani with a pink gown something I’d love to see ordinary brides styling with more often. In July Fearne Cotton also went for sparkle with her ethereal but relaxed summer dress, so hopefully all this sparkle will start a trend.
In terms of style the whole Kimye extravaganza with walls of flowers certainly impressed even if your local florist and your bank balance might not be able to stretch to their level. Perhaps just a floral arch or smaller backdrop for your own big day? Theirs and the Clooney-Alamuddin nuptials at the end of the year certainly made Italy a popular wedding location. Is there anything more romantic than Venice?
I loved the flower headband of Ashley Tinsdale and her relaxed bouquet, along with the lace used by Kelly Clarkson and she also sported beautiful headwear and who can resist a sunflower bouquet. There also seems to many a groom wearing black suits and thin black ties for a classic timeless look through these celebrity nuptials.
There’s still no sign of pictures from Ginnerfer Goodwin or Cheryl Fernadez-Versini weddings yet but there’s still hope something might appear soon. Hope these have given you some inspiration on this rather grey Sunday. Let me know if there was a particular celebrity wedding you loved this year.
