Etsy Thursday: Pearls & Lace Inspired Wedding

Pearls & Lace Wedding Inspiration

A couple of months ago, I predicted one of the hot wedding trends for 2013 would be pearls! This week’s Etsy wedding finds will feature a combination of pearls and lace. In my opinion, gone are the days of the use of 80’s tulle and grandma’s doilies, instead here is a fresh, vintage yet modern display of lace and pearl – beautiful combinations of these accents in 2013!  Linen and chiffon fabrics along with rhinestones, crystals, silver, and gold would also go great with a lace and pearl themed wedding.

My goal with this post was to show the versatility of lace and pearls and show that you can take a vintage and “old” style and give it a modern makeover. Lace & pearls are truly timeless and with some well thought out decor elements you could really WOW your guests and pull off a gorgeous wedding!

I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU:  What did you think of the combination of pearl and lace? What else could you see combining with these two elements?

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?
