Wedding Trends for 2013 – Etsy Thursday

HAPPY NEW YEARS!! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays! It’s my favorite time of the year and I must admit that I am a bit bummed that it is over already.  On a positive note, are you just as excited for 2013 as I am?? I can’t wait to see what is in store for me and my family and the blog this year! 2012 was good to me and I have high expectations for 2013!

Wedding Trends for 2013

Last year, 3D-Memoirs was one of THE first blogs to share 2013 hot wedding trend predictions, courtesy of the wonderful Gail Oliver, Oliver Ink Etsy! Since the original wedding trends series this summer, we have noticed many other blogs and wedding professionals echo a lot of the same trends shared on 3D-Memoirs. I thought it would be a great idea to kick off 2013 with amazing Etsy wedding finds for each of the hot wedding trends for 2013 that we featured!

Hot Wedding Trends for 2013:Paper Lanterns

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

Paper Lanterns are so beautiful and yet surprisingly very inexpensive. That is why they have become a hot wedding décor item. They can make a reception tent, barn or any ceiling instantly eye-catching, especially when hung in clusters in a mix of different sizes, shapes, and colors more a more awe-inspiring look.

Paper Lanterns DIY Ideas:

  • Hang ornate ribbons or plastic crystals of different lengths from the lower metal ring
  • Glue on artificial flowers or paper butterflies
  • Embellish with pearl or jewels brads
  • Use shaped paper punches to create a unique design
  • Cluster the lanterns with hanging paper flowers and pom poms
