Before we enter the new year, we think it’s important to take a look back at 2014. There were so many new trends this year in home decor, weddings, and even gifting that we thought we’d share the most popular ones with you. When it came to wedding registries in 2014, there were certainly a number of trends that rang true across the board. From bar cart accessories to donating to charities, couples truly branched out of the typical wedding registry traditions. Find out the most popular registry trends of 2014 below.
1. Colored Glassware
Rather than opting for classic, clear glassware, couples wanted something a bit more fun this year. Colored glassware was a hot category on tons of wedding registries in 2014, and we can totally understand why based on these products below.
2. Bar Cart Accessories
As the bar cart became a major throwback trend in 2014, gifting bar accessories did so as well. From tools to glasses to decanters, no bar cart was left incomplete.
3. Gold Flatware
A major trend in home decor this year, gold flatware has taken over wedding registries as well. It’s a modern alternative to classic silverware and versatile enough to match your current dinnerware.
4. Outdoor Adventure Gear
Gone are the days when wedding registries were only filled with items for your home. Couples were thinking outside of the box this year and registering for items they’d use in their lives outside of the home, like camping equipment, picnic essentials, and more.
5. Charity Donations
Last but not least, we were thrilled to see couples asking for charity donations as part of their wedding registry. It’s a great way to give back and guests are more than happy to donate.
