Time goes by so fast! Christmas is nothing but a glitter in our minds, summer has come and gone (just kidding, it’s just a bit cold right now) and the Wedding Season is upon us. For those who decided on a Spring Wedding, you’re dealing with the last details, your theme was chosen way back. But for all of the others that will get married in 2013, maybe you’re still looking for inspiration. A few experienced bloggers have told us that there are many very interesting trends in 2013. I chose 15 of those trends that I particularity like and you can find pictures that illustrate them perfectly just by selecting the links to their boards on my Pinterest.
15. Cool Patterns & Prints
Stripes, polka dots, chevron, black & white, colours, pretty little flowers, on dresses, accessories, bouquet, tables… This trend surprises and charms us, makes us smile and most of all, distinguishes itself with loads of personality.
14. Cosy Lounge Areas
Small islands of tranquility & privacy are spreading all over venues, for animated conversations or just to catch your breath. Elegant, romantic, modern, vintage, these lounge areas show many enveloping moods.
13. Fluttering Garlands
Colorful, with paper, flowers, hearts, garlands gracefully invade ceilings, ceremonies, decor.
12. Split Personality Cakes
Modern with a pop of embellishment or bright with all over appliques, cakes are astonishing and mouth-watering.
11. Backgrounds Take the Lead
For ceremonies, pictures, cakes, backgrounds are full of creativity, they shine brightly, they glitter, they drape, they play a supporting role in the show.
10. Green is this Year’s Colour: in Emerald & Mint
Green gets romantic, tender, reserved but charming with its mint tone or it exudes elegance, with its rich and sumptuous emerald version.
9. Covered Centerpieces
Glass bells, birdcages, lanterns fill up with flowers, candles, surprises.
8. Brilliant Paper Lanterns
Monochrome ou multicolored, small or big, round or square, paper lanterns flourish in clusters or in garlands around the bridegrooms.
7. Radiant Rainbow Colours
Completely out there and filled with humor, this trend is in a class of its own with its bright audacity. It puzzles with its multicolored accents that show up on bridesmaid feet and under brides’ dresses, it seduces with its flowers and its lights that brighten up tables, cakes, spaces.
6. Enchanting LoveBirds
Two interpretations of this theme are coming back strong with a multitude of superb or delightful details. Feathers, nests, garlands, lovebirds liven up dresses, tables, halls.
5. Charming 20s
The roaring 20s influence is transforming events with its Great Gatsby atmosphere, its distinctive dresses, its particular hairstyles, its feathers, glitter and pearls and Art deco accents.
4. Bold Flowers
Flowers are showing off bright colours, they explode in sumptuous arrangements, they fall over in cascade out of the brides hands and they turn the spotlight on peonies.
3. Revealing Lace
Everlasting symbol of romance, lace is forsaking simplicity for richness, it wraps tenderly heads, hands, bodies, chairs, tables, invitations, flowers.
2. Elegance is back
With diamonds, draping and chandeliers, elegance is taking a unique place in the heart of the bridegrooms. It relaxes, reinventing and surrounding itself with superb elements, luxurious textures and brilliant ideas.
1. Do whatever you want!
Bridegrooms are paying no attention to trends and breaking with traditions, they are bursting with formal or outstanding ideas, they are surrounding themselves with personal and characteristic details, they are creating their wedding in their image.
BONUS: Beer for everyone!
I couldn’t forget that timid little trend, less widespread, but so laid-back and refreshing in my eyes. Beer takes on successfully a very distinguish aura, it offers itself as a gift, it flows freely making its often forgotten fans, so happy!
