#1) Mint Green
Sometimes known as Seafoam Green, Jade Gray, or Aqua, Mint Green is a refreshing color that is proving to be the top color choice among brides in 2013. Pair this cool color with warm coral or peach for an invigorating combination. For a rustic look, combine mint with burlap or add gold for a more classic and rich feel.
#2) - Braids and High Buns
Braids and buns have been sweeping across Hollywood amongst A-listers and the movie industry. Seen worn by celebs in movies like The Hunger Games and Snow White and the Huntsman, it's no surprise that these dazzling coifs would carry over into weddings. Whether piled high on your head in a ballerina bun updo or braided loosely in a feminine fishtail, this is one trend we can't wait to see more of.
#3) - Prints and Patterns
Whether seen on your bridesmaids dresses, as a table runner, or in your decorations and favors, prints and patterns are one of the hottest trends to watch out for in 2013. This trend is for every bridal style whether romantic or modern. Expect to continue to see chevron and polka dot prints be one of the most sought after patterns with floral patterns making a steady rise throughout the year.
#4) - Creative Food Stations
One of the most talked about wedding trends of 2013 is the use of food truck catering at wedding receptions. While normally found on busy city streets, food trucks can now be found in quaint backyard weddings. Surprise guests with late night treats from your food stand or give them a full meal of cart cuisines. Either way, the food truck trend is here to stay and we love it. If you don't want to go all out with an entire food cart, consider tables of mini cuisines and themed food tables for your guests.
#5) Unique Backdrops and Aisles
Wedding decorations are getting a lot of attention this year among bride and grooms. Pay particular attention to the use of unique backdrops and wedding ceremony aisles. Couples will be injecting their own personal creativity into making this element of their wedding unique. This unexpected addition gives bride and grooms a unique spot to snap a photo, a creative backdrop for their wedding vows, or simply a showstopping part of their wedding decor.
#6) - 1920's Vintage Fashion (Thank you Downton Abbey)
Say thank you to Downton Abbey and The Great Gatsby for this next wedding trend...period wedding style. Brides are going vintage glam with their wedding this year pulling inspiration from eras like the 1920's for their fashion choices and decor. Expect to see more period themed weddings popping up as we continue into 2013.
#7) - Bird and Terrariums
Our last pick for this years up and coming trend is the use of birds and terrariums in wedding decorations. Either derived from the Love Bird wedding theme or Garden wedding theme, these elements are a great way to tie in a natural and rustic look into your wedding. Other areas where you can expect to see bird inspired elements are in feather accessories, wedding favors such as bird seed and Jordan almond 'eggs'.
