Wedding trend’s of 2012 anyone? We had a little look in our crystal ball and heres a round up of what we predict will be cropping up this year.
Food Trucks: 2011 saw the emergence of unique and eclectic food stations at wedding. In 2012, wedding guests should expect to find food trucks parked outside receptions and after-parties. As food trucks are gaining popularity across the nation, brides are taking notice and booking them to provide guests with fun and original fare.
Non traditional wedding gowns: If Bridal Fashion week is any indication, 2012 will be the year of the not-so-white wedding gown. Brides are moving away from traditional ideals and colours by selecting dresses in various hues or with a punch of colour. Blush is growing in popularity as the color of choice, while many women are opting for patterned gowns.
Two dresses: One wedding dress simply isn’t enough. For years, celebrity starlets have strutted their stuff on their wedding day in multiple gowns and blushing brides are beginning to follow suit. Don’t be surprised to see a lavish gown for the wedding ceremony be traded in for a more comfortable design for the reception. I opted for this choice on my big day choosing a 1930s tulle gown for the service and a slinky peach satin bias cut 1930s dress with lace trim for the reception.
Smaller Guest Lists: With an emphasis on intimacy and informality, many couples are slashing their lists and opting for smaller affairs. Giant, over-the-top events might become a thing of the past as couples choose to say ‘I do’ amidst a close circle of family and friends.
Nature Calls: Rustic and vintage themes will continue to prevail throughout 2012, with brides drawing inspiration from nature. Expect to see muted palettes, heavy on creams, greens, and browns, and an array of natural elements permeating the wedding décor.
