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?

10 Hot Wedding Trends for 2013: #1 MINT

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

 

 

The color mint was huge on the runway at the spring fashion shows this year. You’ll see this soft, soothing color on save the dates, wedding invitations, bridesmaid dresses, flowers, and wedding decor. To make the theme more than just the color, mint will also make its way into signature wedding cocktails (think mojitos), cakes and cupcakes, centerpieces, and wedding favors.

Why the sudden like for mint? The vintage trend has brought mint green back to the forefront as it was the color of choice for many home and personal items (such as telephones, typewriters, appliances, bathroom sinks and tile) in the 1940s and 1950s. In their Spring issue, Martha Stewart Weddings has also jumped on the mint bandwagon, suggesting that brides pair it with lemon yellow for a beautiful, fresh color palette.

Here are some products that will make you fall in love with mint.
