2012 Wedding Trends: A Year in Review

We are looking back at 2012 Wedding Trends: A Year in Review

Hey Beautiful People!

As we approach the end of 2012, it’s time to reflect and revisit some of the beautiful designs we’ve experienced this past year. From wedding gowns,  to eclectic table design, we’re looking back at some pretty amazing weddings.  Join us on this journey and let these terrific visuals stimulate you for YOUR next event!!!

A beautiful, sexy shoe in your favorite color under your gown? We saw that in 2012 and we definitely want to see it again in 2013. That trend is a keeper!

Couples found some unique ways to set up their wedding ceremonies and their guests loved it!!

Who knew that blush pink would be the breakout color for wedding gowns in 2012? If you missed it, check out Jessica Biel’s wedding dress!

 

Some brides left the traditional veils behind and opted for a simple, yet beautiful headpiece accessory.

 

Barnyard weddings made a big splash for 2012–we expect to see more of these in 2013!

Mason jars were at almost every outdoor wedding…have we seen the last of them? Only time will tell!

 

We’ve seen a HUGE push for suspended centerpieces. Check out these hanging branches flanked by table numbers. And whatever you do, don’t forget to include candles….everywhere. We believe there can never be too many….LOVE!

 

Clean, modern, minimal…our city brides LOVE this!

Lounge furniture showed up at a bunch of weddings – and we never saw the same design twice! Grab some custom pillows with your monogram and don’t forget to use LEDs to light up the furniture! POW!

 

Brides want different, so they are considering necklines other than strapless…we are definitely going to see some lovely necklines in lace, off-the-shoulder, spaghetti straps, one-shoulder, and much more! And the back of the dress will become more of a focal point for the more daring brides…we can’t wait to see it all in 2013!

The sweetheart table may be replaced by take a back seat to the old-school head table or dais, which is making  a comeback. We’ll be designing a few, but with a modern twist. For those that do have the sweetheart table, make sure it’s a show-stopper like this one! 

 

Burlap was big in 2012…and will continue to be present in 2013.

Custom signs for the outdoor wedding is one of the fun elements we love! 

 

Buffet vs. Sit Down vs. Stations vs. Cocktail Reception….couples pushed the envelope to entice their guests with eclectic food service at their weddings. Whatever you decide, make it an engaging, yet delicious experience. Food trucks anyone?

Color Palette Inspiration: Grey and Yellow

Grey and Yellow are a beautifully calming combination for weddings.

Just check out these gorgeous wedding photos – you can’t resist it!

Tell us what you think!! We’d love to hear from you!

This suit is VERY sexy!

The perfect shade of grey for your bridesmaids dress!

White shoes POP against the grey color palette!!

Don’t forget the wedding accessories!

Vendor Spotlight: New Age Wedding Photography by CLB Photo!

We are pleased to present our very first vendor spotlight…CLB Photography!

CLB Photography is an incredible husband/wife duo taking wedding photography to new levels. Chris LoBue and Suzanne Aris LoBue are well-known for  “BadAss” wedding coverage to brides and grooms across NJ…and beyond. We stumbled upon their style of photography a few years back and we’ve been in love ever since.

These talented photographers take each couples’ photo session and make it an adventure. They seek out the best backdrops to make their photos pop! Don’t be surprised to find unexpected locations and stunts in these shots.  We love working with them because no two wedding albums look alike and every couple looks like they’re having the time of their lives. Interested in custom engagement photos, boudoir photo sessions or “Trash The Dress” photography? They kick ass at those too…Check out some of their work below and at: http://www.clbphoto.com.
