There will ALWAYS be tears (happy and sad) at a wedding. Whether we are witnessing a father walk down his eldest daughter down the aisle, listening to a couple recite handwritten vows, dancing along to a surprise performance by the maid of honor, or yes, even drooling over the entire ambiance of the venue, our Decor Editor has rounded up a series of sences so stunning they actually choked us up a bit.

As this year’s wedding season winds down, we’re finding ourselves looking ahead to what’s in store for 2014. We always keep our eyes open for the next big thing, and sifting through gorgeous photos of real weddings day after day has given us some great insight on what’s to come. This week, we’ll be sharing some of the emerging wedding trends we can expect to see a lot more of in 2014. Let’s start off with a look at what’s hot in wedding decor!
Mix and Match – We’re seeing event stylists move away from the matchy-matchy, uniform style in favor of a much more eclectic decor scheme. Mixing elements of contrasting styles creates a look that’s fresh and truly unique. You might pairing sleek white lounge furniture with side tables made of stacked vintage suitcases, for example, or rustic wooden tables paired with modern ghost chairs.
