Whether new clothing trends, home décor trends or wedding trends, every year each industry is influenced by certain styles. With thousands of couples getting married each year, we don't want you to be stuck with last years fad. We have compiled a list of 13 wedding trends for 2013 to make sure your wedding is everything it can be!
1. Vintage: Vintage is often used in weddings, but this year it is going to be prevalent not only in the wedding dress styles, but will also become a big trend in the wedding themes in general whether you make it 20s, 30s, or 40s inspired theme.
Mint was a hot trend during the spring summer season 2012 and it seems to be continuing into the New Year. It gives off a fresh, chic vibe with a retro feel.
3. Rainbow hues:
In case you don’t want to limit yourself to just one wedding color, you can pick them all. Whether you choose the bold or subdued hues, you can have your bridal party wear the outfits in the colors of the rainbow.
Birds, or should we say lovebirds, have always been associated with romance and love. Birds at a great touch to decorations, invitations, cake toppers and centerpieces.
5. Original background:
Recently outdoor weddings have beautiful hand-made backgrounds against which you can spell your vows out Backdrops are essential of the wedding ceremony decorations and can serve as a perfect background for the first kiss snapshots.
6. Covered centerpieces:
Floral designs and other planted centerpieces are going to be covered up and caged in 2013. To make it more contemporary, add bell jars or glasses vases.
7. Lounge areas:
Guests will love the idea with the comfy lounge area t the wedding reception and can be both indoors and outdoors.
8. Mini menus:
Appetizers and desserts of mini sizes give off a cool and stylish look. Guests will love the bite size goodies especially if when presented in a creative and original way.
In addition to serving the symbolic wedding cocktail, consider serving a microbrew and craft beer offered on the market. You may even custom make the labels.
10. Do it the way you want:
If you are not into the typical wedding traditions such as the ceremony at the church, white wedding gown, a lot of attendants- skip it! This loud and quickly growing trend in the wedding sphere allows contemporary couples to set their weddings the way they want them to be. Make it your style, your ideas and your personality!
11. Photo booth (before or after).
Get a photo booth
and take photos (just for him) prior to the wedding and give him the photos before the wedding- it will drive him crazy! If you aren’t into that, have a photo booth at the wedding reception so you and your guests can take fun pictures together!
12. Non- white dress.
More and more brides are deciding on non-white dresses. If you want to express your own personal style through your dress, go for it! If you opt for a white dress but want to add your own personal twist, go for little colorful accents on your dress like lace, flowers or ribbons.
13. Prints. When it comes to wedding décor and design, more couples are embracing patterns. Prints and patterns have been popular for a while now, but they will be everywhere this next year- bridesmaids dresses, wedding décor, cakes, etc.
