Every bride dreams of having the most amazing wedding ever, one that will leave her guests feeling both impressed and delighted. It’s that fairy tale wedding that she’s been dreaming about since she was a little girl. Every bride-to-be also worries that her wedding won’t be unique or stand out. As a result, these women think up new and crazy details for their weddings each year to top the previous year of bridal trends. I did a little research on the 2013 trends and I’m really excited to share my results with you. I found results both from top wedding blogs as well as a few major Bridal websites.
The Roaring Twenties will be a popular wedding theme in 2013 and it is a trend being seen all over the red carpet right now. The Spring release of The Great Gatsby and popular series Downtown Abbey are both inspiration for wedding fashion and wedding themes.
What inspires women to host a Roaring Twenties themed wedding? The 1920’s were a fascinating time! It was the age of jazz, prohibition, and organized crime! More importantly it’s a fun and daring theme that makes a lasting impression. Can you think of the last time you got to step back in time while attending a wedding?
Brides are toning it down in the color department this year choosing more earthy and neutral colors. We’ll see more taupe, gray, and blush being used this season. The ‘less is more’ belief is being presented with these beautiful taupe and blush themed weddings.
Neutral tones can also really accentuate how beautiful the venue is, especially if the bride matched the bridesmaid dresses to the naturally and readily available flowers blooming at the venue. Imagine how pretty it would look to have blush colored bridesmaid dresses with beautiful pink rose bushes in the background. Or even taupe colored bridesmaid dresses in a courtyard or garden setting. Neutral tones look beautiful in nature.
Stemming from the whole Roaring Twenties theme, vintage and elegance are both on the forefront of wedding trends for 2013. Long gowns and black tie affairs will become the norm this year. As a result, lace will also be making a comeback and not just in the wedding gowns. Lace will be seen on dresses, invitations, cakes, and as decoration to create a simply beautiful and classic look. More sophisticated looks will lead to a more classy soiree overall. They lead to more crystal and glass decor on the tables, more cascading bouquets of flowers, and even some recycled vintage wedding attire.
This is one of my personal favorites of all the trends and I think it really does do a great job of setting your wedding apart from the others. I’ve seen them done in so many different ways and I really look forward to designing one of my own at my wedding some day. Some couples go with mini-treats and sweets such as tiny cupcakes and mini pies, and some go with cute salty snacks like a potato bar loaded with french fries, potato chips, and sweet potato fries. Depending on the theme of the wedding, some couples will even chose to have a candy bar set up. The possibilities are endless with this idea which is why I love it so much. Here is a list of the Top 15 best Wedding Food Bars I found while perusing the internet for ideas.
