You want to make sure your wedding stands out from all the others; after all, it is your special day! There are always so many choices for your wedding from stationary to décor so how do you narrow it down? Here are some of the top trends we're seeing for 2013 - don't be afraid to put your own unique and creative twist on them!
Patterns: whether you go with polka dot print or a subtle stripe throughout, patterns are making a huge comeback. And why not?! They are super fun and can add a touch of whimsy to your wedding day. Try paisley ties for the groomsmen or floral dresses for the bridesmaids. A note of caution: try not to be too 'matchy-matchy'!
The Reception "Lounge": more and more people are taking advantage of this awesome idea! An area away from the dance floor where guests can mingle in a more relaxed setting. A great place to put the photo booth or any games you might be including.
Birds: really! Birds are all over the wedding scene right now. Centerpieces (think a cute little nest with a candle, flowers or light blue candies in it), a bird house for the card box, birdcages throughout the venue, lovebird décor on your stationary, and of course, feather accents in what the girls are wearing. Backdrops: these have become one of the must-have décor items. Behind the head table, for a photo booth, at the cake table - wherever you want to add a little something extra. Try twinkling lights behind a sheer fabric, a giant chalkboard or you can make it completely out of florals (check the bridal section for some ideas!). The possibilities are endless here!
The Roaring 20's: one of our personal faves; the whole feel of this era make it perfect for a wedding. The style of the 20's is romantic: think soft colours and lace. Brides wanting to rock this look should try a beaded headband or a cloche style headpiece. The Food Truck?: this is a fairly new idea at weddings but people are now having gourmet (or not-so-gourmet) food trucks come to their wedding for their late lunch, rather than the traditional light fares. Your guests pick and choose what they want!
And last but not least...Mint: the colour, that is. Mint is THE colour for 2015- Not just for the clothing although this can look fabulous! - think a signature drink (anyone care for a mojito?), cakes, cupcakes and favours. Your invites printed on mint-coloured paper, and soft mint linens on your tables with a rich brown accent for contrast.
