Every year we're amazed by the creative new ideas that couples come up with to make their wedding day stand out. Last year a wedding arch made of books, animal topiaries and a pickle bar topped our list of most unique wedding ideas, so we have high expectations for 2014! We've kept our eye on the hottest wedding trends for you, and brought you a taste of what's to come.. Make sure to look out for these and more new wedding ideas this year!

1. Living Table Numbers (Like These Ballerinas!)

Table numbers will come to life (literally!) as couples make finding your seat becomes performance art.

2. Suspended Wedding Cakes

Kaley Cuoco's upside down chandelier wedding cake was a huge hit! Instead of a traditional cake table wedding cakes will float in the air suspended in different creative ways.

3. Multiple Engagement Rings



Celebs like Diane Kruger and Emily Maynard are rocking multiple stacked engagement rings instead of the traditional solo ring and center stone.

4. Prickly Centerpieces

Succulents have been a huge hit in wedding floral design the past few years, but their prickly cousins like these bright and color blocked moon cacti are going to take over.

5. Picnic Style Reception Seating

For the couple looking for a more relaxed and casual vibe they'll do away with tables and chairs altogether and spread out blankets and baskets for picnic-style seating!

6. Pretty Phone Charging Stations



Flowers and chest of drawers are just the beginning when it comes to ways we'll see phone charging stations decorated in the coming year.
