Wedding Trends You’ll See in 2013
When planning for your big day, there are so many things to remember and take care of. Wedding trends come and go. Gretchen Culver, owner of Rocket Science Weddings & Events, is here with what you will see this year.
Rustic - modern spin and glamorized. There will be cleaner lines, and a cohesiveness through china, silverware and glassware. More edited look and presentation, bringing some elegance back. This is also eclectic, combining the modern and rustic/vintage, kind of a "fresh take" on a farm.
Pattern is the new monogram.
Before, a couple would personalize their wedding by using a monogram throughout the wedding design. Now you can personalize through a pattern. It is a more visual, interesting way to create a personalized look. Many rental companies are now carrying great patterned pieces in their inventory - linens, napkins, table runners, accessories, etc.
Or you can customize a pattern based on something specific such as the pattern/lace on your bridal gown, the wallpaper in your venue, an heirloom piece from your grandma, etc.
Pattern is easy to carry through multiple elements of your day, from the stationery suite to the accessories you carry.
3. PLACE MATS
A really new trend that will develop in 2013 and into following years is placemats. Before when people wanted to add dimension and detail to each place setting they used a charger/base plate. Now you can utilize a place mat.
Printed place mats - can double as your menu card, and even place card! Digital printing makes it easy to create a custom placemat that matches everything in your wedding design. Local stationers can easily make a placemat that doesn't make a huge dent in your budget, or you can find pre-made options online like on Etsy.
If you want to kick it up a notch, linen, vinyl, faux leather (think crocodile) and wicker placemats can really add that final detail to the place setting. (Will have samples in studio)
Blue is a major trend for 2013. People are opting to make a bold statement with color.
Blue is a really hard color to incorporate through flowers since there aren't that many naturally blue blooms.
A few ways to incorporate blue successfully are through your linens, stationery, and attire. Or pair a blue vase with a bold flower for a dramatic effect.
