2012 Wedding Trends - Romance is in the Air

Fall is fast approaching, which means Spring is only 9 months away!  Yes, I'm looking ahead to Spring for a sneak peak at all the top trends.  So, if you're planning a wedding in 2012 here's what you need to know if you want your wedding to be haute.

2012 is the year of Romance. From the dress to the decor, think - dreamy, sentimental, love.

Bridal Gowns - What says romance more than Victorian-style. Sleeves and illusion necklines provide an aura of royalty for every bride.

Full-Scale Themes - More than a color palette  themes are carried through from the invitations to the flowers to the linens to the dessert. Some popular themes include: Vintage, Rustic & Nautical. But creativity knows no bounds, so pick one that reflects you & show it in the details.

Outdoor Venues - Natural settings are hugely popular for the beauty and ambiance that they provide & the minimal decor that is required. Popular places include: Vineyards, Gardens & Farms.

Dessert Tables - Gone are the days of only having a wedding cake and maybe a groom's cake. Today, couples are offering up their favorite desserts at their receptions. From pies to cupcakes to cookies, it's a buffet of beautifully displayed flavors and options for guests.

Good Night Station - Couples now are combining food and favor into a fun, interactive station for their guests.  Buffets of pastries, doughnuts or candy, provide guests with a goody bag to go.

Faux Flower Decor - Whether paper, fabric, tissue or feathers; Bouquets, centerpieces & pomander balls aren't just made from fresh flowers anymore. and can be used in so many ways.

Personalized DIY decor - This is not a new trend but continues strong as many brides are getting crafty to showcase their personality & theme and save some money.  The creativity is in using 'found' and natural elements to create centerpieces, escort cards, guest book alternatives, swizzle sticks, table numbers & decor.
