Wedding Trends for 2013

Wedding Trend Predictions for 2013

As you know Wedding Trends for 2013 is a hot topic right now. I am sure that you have seen a lot of buzz on the blog (this year and last year) about wedding trend predictions for this year, but this post is a bit unique because I wanted to add my own personal feedback on what I have noticed and think will be hot wedding trends for 2013!

Creative, Eclectic, Unique & Intimate Venues

As a wedding planner in Southern California, I’ve noticed my clients are asking and booking more creative, eclectic, and non-traditional venues for their wedding day. Although the beach, hotel, and woodsy outdoor venues have been super popular, I think that we will see more unique venues for brides and grooms in 2013, such as museums/art galleries, restaurants, rooftops in downtown areas, vineyards, industrial-like buildings, private homes, and more. (My venue prediction is featured on Bridal Tweet’s 2013 Wedding Trends post – take a look!)

Here are a couple examples of this trend prediction – Creative, Eclectic, Unique, & Intimate Venues.

Last summer, one of my brides exchanged vows at the Long Beach Museum of Art:

Another one of my clients shared their love vows at a rustic stable in Huntington Beach called Red Horse Barn:

My current bride plans on getting married at a Mason Lodge and you have no idea how beautiful her wedding and reception are going to be at this eclectic venue – can’t wait to share pictures next year!

 

STYLE & DECOR TREND PREDICTION FOR 2013

When it comes to style and decor for 2013, I anticipate sequins and pearls being a hot new trend for weddings next year in apparel, accessories, and wedding/reception decor. Here are a few examples:

 

{Apparel}

Sequins Combined With Other Fabric

 

Full Sequin Dress

 

Partial Sequin Dress 

 

 

{Wedding/Reception Decor}

Sequin Linen

 

Sequin LOVE Letters

 

Sequin Runner & Chair Covers

 

Sequin Centerpiece

 

Pearl Centerpiece

 

Pearl Cake Accents

 

Pearl Details On A Wedding Arch

 

Pearl Jewelry 

I LOVE the sequin and pearl trend and I definitely think we will see more of these lovely accents incorporated in weddings in 2013!  I hope you enjoyed my predictions, what do you think will be hot this year?

Hot Wedding Trend for 2013: #9 Garlands

BY GUEST BLOGGER GAIL OLIVER, AUTHOR OF 663 MUST-HAVE WEDDING IDEAS

Brides are always looking for easy DIY décor, and garlands are one of the easiest. Also called buntings, garlands have become hot again, but they are being hung in different ways – not simply strung across the ceiling but hung vertically, along the front of the head table, used as backdrops or wrapped around pillars.

Some Materials for DIY Garlands:

  • Photos – engagement photos, pics of the wedding party
  • Vintage fabric
  • Laser cut paper
  • Tassels
  • Beads or jewels
  • Pompoms
  • Paper letters
  • Maps
  • Fabric flowers
Enjoy some of these great ideas for garlands:

Hot Wedding Trend for 2013: #5 Laser Cuts

WRITTEN BY GUEST BLOGGER GAIL OLIVER, AUTHOR OF 663 MUST-HAVE WEDDING IDEAS 

 

Laser Cuts, which is essentially the cutout of a design, can be seen in everything from fashion to paper goods, and it will be a big trend for weddings in 2013.

Why will laser cuts be popular? Because laser cutting gives the look of lace, which is great for those planning a vintage wedding theme. It also makes more a more stunning design, for an invitation for example, because another material or color can be seen through the cutout design.
