5 of the coolest wedding trends you need to know about

You've said 'yes' and the date is set. Now, it's all about making your special day one to remember. Here are some of the coolest wedding trends of 2014 to ensure your wedding stands out from the crowd. 

#1: Shelve the guest book

It's time to retire the good ol' guest book. Instead, work around the theme of your wedding and get your guests to write their messages on items that define you, as a couple. If you have a shared love for music, go for vinyls. Or if you're into board games, why not Jenga blocks? The options are endless!

#2: Fab Favours

It's all about having gorgeous wedding favours that your guests will actually want to use. If you're into DIY, you can jazz up everyday items like matches, with a smart slogan or keep your guests cool and refreshed with a homemade pop soda. We also love the practical stuff - like a water bottle, tea infuser or even sunglasses - to shade guests’ eyes from the blinding love, of course!

#3: Update the Photo Booth

Photo booths and weddings go hand-in-hand. Forget instant prints, say hello to slow motion video booths. What better way to remember your big day than to capture your guests goofing around in slow mo? Another idea we love is the flipbooks – it’s like a video on paper, best of both worlds! Your guests are bound to have a flippin’ good time.

#4: Hashtag your wedding

Want to have your guests play photographer so you can capture as many candid moments from as many different angles as possible? Think up a custom hashtag, write it on an old school chalkboard and place it by the reception, and have them upload the photos to Instagram so you can have it all in one place.

#5: Unplug your wedding

An unplugged wedding is great for various reasons! One, your guests can focus on you instead of being glued to their screens. Two, there’s no need to worry about ‘guest photographers’ unwittingly getting in the way of the pros and spoiling a picture perfect moment. Three, your special day won't be appearing all over Facebook and Instagram before it's even over!
