In today’s world a bride wants to be many things but predictable definitely does not fit the bill. Those in the know say that as long as that special day is tasteful then really anything goes. Having said that, when it comes to weddings and trends for 2013, there are lots and it seems it depends on your favorite source. Various professionals, magazines, surveys and wedding planners have some different thoughts and views on this topic. But there are some trends that all the experts agree on.
Wedding Trends -Have the Wedding YOU Want!
Rumor has it the biggest trend of this year is to throw caution to the wind and actually have the wedding you want. Imagine that! Gone are the days when a wedding is all about the traditions and customs of the day. And now are meant to be all about the couple that are exchanging vows. When it comes to that happy day expect to see less about wedding rituals and more about the personality and individuality of the brides (and okay the grooms). It is no longer about what others have done and now all about what the couple of the day and customization; the invitations, the music, the venue, the flowers, the guest list, the food, etc.
Wedding Trends – Relax, Retool and Refresh, Reception Lounges
This trend started in 2012 and has continued to grow; Reception Lounges really have become popular and are hitting it big this year. No matter the wedding style or whether your reception is being held outdoors or indoors a reception lounge provides the perfect escape, for guests, from all that wedding madness. It is also an ideal chance for guests to take it easy, socialize and grab a bite, in a laid back atmosphere. A reception lounge can easily be customized but really it’s up to the bride and groom to make it as warm and cozy, elegant and glitzy, friendly and cutting edge as they want.
Wedding Trends – Eating, Eating, Eating, Food Trucks
So many wedding experts agree about this next trend and how IN fashion it is this year. Whether you’re a foodie or not, something that started in the last couple of years and has become so in style this year is Food Trucks. Food trucks really are one of the more scrumptious fads. And if you can name a variety of food it looks like there is a food truck that covers it. From classy to down home; from comfort to cultural food; from finger food to pizza, the options are endless and more importantly delicious. After a night of mingling, dancing, drinking and pure wedding bliss what better way to cap it all off then a snack from a gourmet food truck. I can’t think of a better or more enjoyable way for your guests to call it a night.
