Wedding Trends That Are Here to Stay in 2013

We just celebrated “out with the old and in with the new!” But it’s hard to say goodbye to those 2012 trends that we love, so we won’t. We believe these 8 trends will last well into 2013 and beyond. Happy New Year everyone!

1. The Food Truck
What a creative and inexpensive way to share unique and fun food with those you love. Whether the food truck provides the main course or just crashes the “after hours” party for late night apps it is sure to be a hit with all your guests!

2. Ruffled and Ombre Wedding Cakes
With this duo at your wedding cake table you really can’t go wrong. Gorgeous layers of ruffles and ombre make them almost too beautiful to eat!

3. Bold Patterns and Colors
This year’s pattern definitely went to Chevron and we suspect it will continue in 2013 along with many other bold patterns (stripes and polka dots are coming in strong) along with bold color. Speaking of bold color, yellow and pink is a trend I believe we will see a lot come spring time.

4. Rustic Weddings
Romantic and really quite easy to plan, is why we believe these will stick around. Find the location and be inspired by what surrounds you. Barns, hay bales, wood tables, crates it all makes for the perfect rustic wedding. Rustic weddings always seem to bring out so much creativity with all things natural and re-purposed.

5. Vintage Glam
Love the mix of “old” with “new” for that Hollywood vibe of the past. It’s over the top with vintage glam because anything goes really – mix, gold, silver, mercury and bling together at the ceremony or reception. Then add a vintage style dress, mink and birdcage veil to complete the look!

6. Heels with Bling
Nope these beautiful babies do not have to go away in 2013. In fact, we think we may have viewed just as many pictures of fabulous “bling” wedding heels as brides this past year. Clear a space on your photo wall or photo album they will definitely make it into your wedding day memories!

7. Dolled up sweets and cake tables
Yes, we all love the wedding cake, but some of us love the cupcake, cookie or pie too! We are happy to see the buffet style of sweets at weddings now. These will continue on trend and have just made dessert that much more anticipated!

8. Bunting
On cake, at the reception, with words or no words, back drop or just a detail… bunting works! They add fun and pizazz to your celebration!

This list really could go on photo booths, picture props, creative aisle runners, funky bridesmaid frocks, brooch bouquets, snack machines…I think that is why weddings are so fabulous! They keep evolving just like everything else in life. It’s fun to express yourself and style your wedding. All our best to you in 2013 creating your unique, beautiful, fancy or simple “wherever the trend blows you” big day!
