Spring Wedding Trends 2013

By: Jennifer Wykstra

Spring has come and love is in the air! As you are preparing for your wedding or just an avid wedding stalker like me, here are some of the top wedding themes that keep popping up this spring!

1. Colors

Emerald, being the color of the year is a favorite among brides this spring. These gorgeous wedding color is a hit both inside and outside with the elegance vs nature versatility.

We are also seeing a lot more yellow and gray among brides. Personally I am a huge fan of the dark and light grey. I love the groom in a dark grey suit rather then black and grey bridesmaid dresses makes for  a simple yet elegant look. The yellow accent is beautiful but could very easily be overdone. You want to be careful with the yellow color to make sure your wedding doesn’t turn into a highlighter look.

And finally my personal favorite is coral. Especially this spring I have seen this being paired up with a blue or turquoise making for a gorgeous appearance. I love the added blue because it makes for a more fun and relaxed feel and helps the wedding not look so pink and girly.

2. Backless dresses

 You cannot talk about weddings without talking about the dress! This spring there are a lot of backless wedding dresses, a personal favorite of mine. I mean, I do love the traditional strapless gown, but I think people tend to underestimate the beauty and hint of sexiness found in a woman’s back. I LOVE this trend and hope it continues!

3. Miss matched bridesmaid dresses

Another very fashionable trend for the more informal weddings are miss matched bridesmaid dresses. I love the contrast they give to the picture and is also a nice way to make sure your bridesmaids look their best. Not all body types fit into the same style dress so I love this new trend.

4. You are not invited…

 A trend I am hoping will go out of style very fast is the trend of un-invites. Brides this spring have decided it is the ‘new, cool, thing’ to send out invitations to the people they don’t want to invite. To me this seems juvenile and childish. Talk about reverting back to high school, better yet middle school. You can read more about this  new wedding trend.

5. Grooms pictures

Groomsmen always seem to find a way to make everyone laugh and lighten the mood,  this spring is no different. A common picture theme I am finding this spring involves the groom and all of his men. It makes for a hilarious and mood lightening shot, capturing the fun involved in a wedding, when the groom and his men imitate the bride and her bridesmaids.

6. Colorful Wedding Cakes

Last but certainly not least is the cake. This trend is taking the traditional, layered, white wedding cake and adding a splash of color and spazam to it. I love this idea but unless you know someone in the business cake can get really pricey!
