I know…I know – two posts in one week! A miracle, if you ask me.
But finally…it’s here!
Back when we were prepping for our bridal show I scoured the internet for ideas that matched the vision in my head. I was (and still kind of am) obsessed with the colors purple, grey, and lime/apple green. So much so that I actually used it at an event mixer back in November. I don’t know how that came to be, but the colors just wouldn’t go away. So I ran with it.
Once the colors were settled, I decided to look into wedding trends. I’m not a follower of trends in general (I practically live in Converse and hoodies – ask anyone), but for this event I was willing to make an exception. It was then that I ran into a snag.
Mint was the wedding color for the up-and-coming season!
So I took a step back and rethought our original design plan. I made the decision to scrap the lime/apple green and add mint. I think it worked out well, but I might be a tiny bit biased. ;]
Anyway, if you haven’t checked out the wedding trends for 2013, here they are:
#1 – Mint
We used mint in multiple places, but I think it was most evident in the tablecloth of our food table.
#2 – Birds
We used our birdcage for our giveaway, but it can be used as a “wish tree” or a cute vessel for cards.
#3 – Paper Lanterns
I absolutely adore this. The colors, where they’re hung, how they’re hung…so much win!
Super cool for an outdoor soiree! When night falls, it’s probably gorgeous.
#4 – Braided Hair
I’m not a braid kind of girl, but this looks super cute. Perfect for those hot weather weddings/events where you want to be comfortable yet stylish.
#5 – Laser Cut
So intricately beautiful!
It’s not actually lace, but it looks like it! Love it!
Chicken wire to hold your escort cards?! Who woulda thunk?
#7 – 1920’s
We used feathers in our floral centerpiece for a splash of the Gatsby-era…
We also used champagne coupes instead of flutes to bring a little 1920’s to our sweetheart table.
#8 – Backdrops
Perfect mix of shades of pink in this ribbon backdrop. Love it!
#9 – Garland
We did a small ribbon garland to pair with our open frame backdrop.
Bark centerpieces?! So pretty!
