A much needed new take on “something old” will be seen trending in 2012 weddings. Vintage inspiration is here to stay – however, we are relieved to see vintage used in a much needed variation: good-bye rustic vintage, hello sophisticated old-world glamour. Thank you, William and Kate and your Royal Wedding!
Bridal Gown Trends for 2012
We welcome the glamorous, romantic and old Hollywood-style in bridal gowns. Designers have embraced and combined flowing elegance with texture and color to produce show stopping gowns.
Couples will continue to incorporate family heirlooms and traditions into their 2012 wedding, just with less mason jars, tin cans and vintage luggage. The ‘shabby-chic’ will be replaced by detailed French lace on dresses, favors, cake detail, bouquet wraps, and invitations.
Think old-world glamour meets modern sophistication with lavish furnishings, rich textures, lots of white, and some metallic’s in grand traditional settings.
Sweets and Treats Trends for 2012
The cupcake and candy bar trend of previous seasons will shift towards cookies and dessert tables in 2012. Expect to start seeing more cookies, pies and “hand-made” candy being served to fulfill the sweet tooth cravings of guests at 2012 weddings. We also expect to see a much anticipated return of the traditional groom’s cake.
