Christmas is just around the corner, but we’re already excited for the 2013 wedding season! If you’re planning a wedding for 2013, don’t miss out on these top trends that will tie your perfect day all together!
1. Paper Lanterns
Paper lanterns are perfect for almost any type of wedding – from budget-friendly to extravagance, to indoor or outdoor – this key piece of decor makes creative lighting simple. Part of the fun of paper lanterns is that the options are endless – you can stick to just one color, try different shades of the same color, or get colorful by color-blocking different hues. An added bonus – paper lanterns can function as centerpieces as well!
2. Colorful Charger Plates
Dressing the table is arguably one of the most important pieces of your wedding decor. Solid color charger plates were all the rage in 2012 and the trend shows no signs of disappearing. Because you can find charger plates in practically any color, it’s easy to find one that fits with your style. Set against white linens, brightly colored charger plates immediately tell your guests it’s time to party.
3. Tissue Paper Pom Poms
We’re starting to see a trend here: color. Whether you use tissue paper pom poms as an alternative to paper lanterns, or in addition to, this decor trend adds casual elegance to any event. You can even use them at your bridal shower and then again at the wedding – a budget friendly way to go big on decor.
4. Kissing Balls
Here’s another trend we’re noticing: hanging decor. We love kissing balls because they’re an easy yet decorative way to instantly dress up your outdoor event. Hang these from trees, shepherd hooks, or the backs of chairs. Extremely detailed, kissing balls create stunning decor for any event.
5. Hanging Crystal Garlands
Looking to add some glam to your wedding without going overboard? 2013 is all about subtle touches of glamour. Hanging crystal garlands are perfect to use on centerpieces, especially on gorgeous manzanita trees. Mix and match colors on the same centerpiece for an unexpected look.
6. Paper Fans/Sandalwood Fans
Summer is still far off, but it’s not too early to start planning your summer wedding. Many couples like to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and hold their wedding and/or reception outside. However, whether your guests will be seated in a tent or not, make sure they’re prepared for the hot summer sun. Paper and sandalwood fans are perfect because they’re both functional and decorative!
7. Raffia Fans
If you’re looking for more texture in your fans, then look no further than raffia fans. These days you can find raffia everywhere – furniture, party ware, and rugs!
8. Rhinestone Ribbon Rolls
Here’s another trend that’s here to stay for a while – rhinestone ribbon rolls. If you’re a DIY kind of bride, then this is a 2013 must-have. These rhinestone rolls are easy to cut and to add adhesive to on the back. Let your imagination run wild with this glam decor. Some of our favorite ideas: wrap around candle centerpieces, use them on place cards, decorate your gift box, and more!
9. Custom Cupcake Toppers
Custom cupcake wrappers were everywhere in 2012 and don’t expect them to go anywhere in 2013! Customized cupcake toppers are a fun way to add personalization to your special day. Use these toppers to create messages for your save-the-date cards, engagement photos, and reception dessert table!
One of our favorites – burlap is a must for any vintage, shabby chic event. Perfect for both indoor and outdoor events, burlap adds and instant touch of rusticity.
