Hot Wedding Trends of 2014

For all the lucky brides of 2014, there are so many different trends this year that are worth noticing. As in the past, the trend of making the wedding reflect their personalities will continue to sky rocket, and be more present than ever. Below are a few trends to take notice to when planning your big day.

Cakes of 2014

One trend that is on the rise is the “naked cake”. This increasingly popular fad foregoes the external layer of frosting along the sides to display the unpolished batter. Often accompanying rustic decors, naked cakes are usually topped with fruits, nuts, syrups, and even real flowers to create a charmingly simple aesthetic. These desserts can come in all different shapes and sizes, matching your personal preference and amount of guests. While it works well in rural settings, the naked cake will seem right at home in a minimalistic, contemporary warehouse environment.

Vintage-styled cakes will never grow old; this wedding facet experienced a surge in 2013, and expect to see more vintage cakes this year than last. Brides are opting to showcase nontraditional add-ons to the decorations, like lace, pinwheels, and pearls.

All about the colors

Pink has always been linked with unconditional love and romance, so it shouldn’t be a shocker that this hue will continue to be popular with this year’s weddings. Blush styles will “take the cake”, as this softly feminine tint works well with vintage palettes and can offset the cool aloofness of blues and greens without competing for the spotlight. Many bridal designers are even now incorporating it into their creations, like many of the wedding dresses by Vera Wang offered at David’s Bridal.

With it being the year 2014, we cannot forget about the pantone color of the year, Radiant Orchid. This subtle purple tone goes well with mostly every wedding theme. Balancing royalty and a sense of whimsy, this playful tone will look particularly fetching on bridesmaids.

Themes of 2014

Rustic barn weddings are very popular this year, as it incorporates rural touches without the risk of being rained out. Similarly, the woodsy theme is becoming more prominent. Both themes are commonly minimally decked out with mason jars and/or twinkle lights, mismatched centerpieces with wild flowers, medleys of lace and burlap textiles and playful, DIY elements. Selection in foods tend to be simpler (no chocolate fountains), and focus locally grown ingredients.

Popular culture is continuing to inspire couples in 2014, notably the Great Gatsby and Mad Men. For the former, gold plays a significant role in decking out the environment, as do feathers, pearls and shimmery materials. Many brides wear flapper dresses and encourage their guests to dress in a similar fashion.

 For weddings inspired by the AMC show based in the 1960’s, it’s very much about the retro style. Women should consider tea-length gowns or tight-fitted dresses that show off their va-va-voom curves; red lips and nails are a must; and accessorize with hair nets, pearls and white gloves. Don’t opt for a faded, vintage color scheme and, instead, embrace boldly contrasting combinations like red, white and blue.

All these trends and themes are perfect for 2014, but what is most important is what you truly love and want. After all, it’s your big day and only happens once, make it count.

Sheer Dress – Hollywood Actress revealing fashion attire

You might have seen her before in Kyle XY but you must agree with me that you  didn’t know Jamie Alexander that much until now.

Just recently, she steal the red carpet and the eyes of many when she attending the Red Carpet Show of  2013 sequel, Thor: The Dark World with a very revealing black Azzaro gown. It’s safe to assume that she’s wearing something beneath that dress but who knows she might not.

Seriously, sheer panels are now all over the fashion world.  Last year, it was the revealing leg scene with many Hollywood superstars creating a big buzz showing their legs in the red carpets and this year, who could forget Gwyneth Paltrow’s sexy dress on another red carpet premiere of their film, Iron Man 3.

Even at her age and with kids, Paltrow looks really sexy and i might say, i felt sad and envy her.

This stars really know how to make people remember them but i do hope that this sheer panel apparels would not cause more scandals like what Miley Cyrus and Rihanna have done.

Sheer is indeed the sexiest trend this year and I wonder if i could keep up with this trend since I don’t have the body to flaunt.

WIWW – Let the sunshine in

I have been lazy the past few days or let me rephrase the word, I was really not in the mood to write after the google domain incident that happened a few days ago.  I will spare you my ranting since I was really shocked and down for some days after learning that my blog was expired.  But with the help of some friends and my perseverance to contact them, i was able to receive a concrete reason on why I received that e-mail.  It’s my first blog and for some sentimental reason, I have been maintaining it for four years now.

I guess, one thing I have learned on that incident is, it’s really good to ask around if your just a newbie on blogging (especially if you want to get your own domain) but that was a long ago, i have made several mistakes back then but now, I’m just happy that I have grown and learned a lot.

 So, enough of the drama and I have to get back on my senses,  so the lighten the mood, I am sharing you this outfit shot.

Since I was a kid, i love dressing up.  I remember the times when i used to join different parade and school plays wherein I will perform different characters and dress to fit what I am portraying. I was once a fairy, princess, frugal lady,pirate, Victorian lady and a nymp and i had great memories of them.  Now, that I have my own daughter, we used to dress her up in characters too.  Since  her birth, we have joined several contests and participated in different festivals. 

But sometimes, finding a good costume can be a real pain in the butt , sometimes it can even cost thousands .  One costume store that offers beautiful and quality costume is Anytimecostumes,  browsing their site, you can find different character costume which will fit your little one as well as adults too.

They have historic to patriotic costumes, ranging from 1920’s to present time.   We definitely love their Super hero and star wars costumes which is a great costume for your kids.  They even have adult costumes as well as for plus size woman which is really hard to find with others stores.  We have our favorites and wish i can wear this Sassy Snow White costume , it’s definitely hot and sexy.

But since we got the chance to try one of their costumes,  we get a bumblebee transformer deluxe costume for peachy.  My daughter really loves it and so excited to try them but since there are no available small size, we have to settle for the next size which we can used this coming next trick or treat costume contest.

Wedding Inspiration – Pink Feathered Wedding Gown

I have seen some pictures of lovely brides wearing those pretty pink gowns on their wedding day and I totally love how they proudly flaunt it for the whole world to see.  Gone are the days that brides wore the  traditional white or off white gowns.

Some even goes boldly using black, red, violet and green in their wedding gowns and i love the idea on how they incorporate their fave colors on the one special day in their life.

Pink symbolizes youth, fun and excitement.  It also defines a passionate and sensual woman with lots of love within her.  It is recognizes as color for advocacy on breast cancer. It signifies happiness and tranquility.  For me, a woman wearing a pink wedding dress is just showing how passionate she is, no doubt every bride will look fresh and beautiful.

If you have that killer legs, why not flaunt them with this lovely bridal gown.

A beautiful nymph

 Marian Rivera is one of the few actresses in Philippine television that I so admire.  It’s not just her beautiful body but her adorable face (well she is half filipina and a half spanish, so there is already a certain mixture) but what i truly like her is that she shows what she is.  She has no pretension, she would eventually laugh loud if she like too.  I can see her moves, her eyes while giving a dissenting look if she doesn’t like the issue and she would eventually talked what’s on her mind.

I know a lot of people in my group who doesn’t like her because she’s loud and sometimes she was said to be exchanging words with girls who was linked with his boyfriend but I guess she’s just being human and we all have the right to speak on what we believe is the right thing to do.

For me, she was a nymph rebirth to be in a human form.  She’s adorable and beautiful and too sexy to ignore.

Fashion and Glamour at Star magic ball 2012

With the recent ABS-CBN Star Magic Ball 2012 held at Makati Shangri-la Hotel, stars lavishly parades showing their different style in their black and white motif.

I also noticed that there is a pattern of designs among the ladies , i don’t know who created their gowns but you can see that most of them are wearing feathered gowns.

shaina magdayao on her ravishing gown

Shaina Magdayao looks ravishing on her white gown.  Bare backed and low neckline, she just proved that she can be as sexy and daring but still looking elegant. I can even sense her saying, who care’s if your not mine, (John Llyod) i can find a more better man than you!

kim chiu at her best

Kim Chiu She’s sexy, there’s no denying that.  From her PBB teen days to her sweet image on screen, she’s growing to be a mature woman showing her other side.

Yeng Constantino and Maja Salvador -wise choice

Although Yeng Constantino’s music style is hard and rock, on this day, she shows her soft side, wearing beautiful see- through white gown while Maja Salvador wears a top fitting gown that definitely suits her body.  There is no doubt if she won the star of that night because she really looks gorgeous.

Even though some would deny that there is competition between Princess and I star, Kathryn Bernardo and Walang Hanggan star Julia Montes, there would always be comparison on their acting and on how they carry their self.

Although, i love her at Princess and I , Kathryn’s look here,  like she’s going to attend a wedding and her make up and hair is not as good because she looks more thin and ages a bit.  I guess, if they have done it with a small bun or perhaps just let it loose with some big curls, it would create a different impact and not too formal.

julia montes

Julia’s look is much better, her hair complements her face and her white gown looks good on her what i don’t like here is the extra trail.

handsome hunks of star cinema

 Gone are the days of John Llyod and Piolo Pascual, even though they are star cinema’s bankable actors, these hunks (actors) are Star Cinema and ABS-CBN trending actors this days. There is no doubt that Coco Martin and Jake Cuenca is one of the leading prime time actors in ABS-CBN now and with their growing fans, this two actors will take even more heights on their career.

But just like any event, there are best dressed and worst dressed.  It’s not that i don’t like them, these two actress are indeed good on their different field but it doesn’t mean that your a good actress, you can always be a good dresser too.

dimples romana and pokwang

I just don’t like the dress of Dimples here,  her top looks good but it was not as good at the bottom while Pokwang (although) we know her wearing wild gowns and dresses, her gown this night is not so much appealing to me.

I love Erich looks.  She definitely look elegant and beautiful on this black see-through gown and her hair compliments her style. Elegant and stylish yet not too sweet.  She was also able to show her curves which gives her an extra factor.

erich gonzales

 I guess, just like them who enjoyed the night, their avid fans also enjoyed looking at their beautiful photographs . Another beautiful year had fast with star magic talent, they are now looking on a brand new year full of projects and surprises for each of them.

And yes, i could not end this post without saying how Dawn Zulueta looks great on her simple Givenchy gown and sparkling diamonds (i searched about it) .  She’s always my favorite since I was a teenager and even with that years passed, she’s still a beauty and glamorous as always.

Dawn Zulueta

Too bad, we were not able to see how Gretchen looked at that night, she’s always a stunner and where’s Anne, i believe she’s from Star Magic too and KC Concepcion, i thought she’s all over Piolo.
