I’m back! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas; I definitely did! But today I’ve waved my brother off, packed away all the Christmas decorations and just about recovered from a lovely long dose of flu… so it’s back to blogging! And to kick start 2013 I thought I’d mention five of my favourite predicted wedding trends for the year.
Now I do believe that having a wedding ‘trend’ is an odd concept, mainly because I believe weddings should simply be a reflection of the couple. But there’s nothing wrong with a little inspiration, and hey if you like one of the trends then that’s enough for you to use it in your wedding! I personally believe the running trend from year to year should be ‘doing your wedding your way’ ;)
1. Gorgeous greens
Emerald has been named Pantone’s colour of the year, but for brides looking for something a little more subtle, mint may well be a big hit. With sparkle and glamour also being tipped to trend in 2013, this board I created a while back could provide some inspiration…
If you’ve been reading this blog a while then you’ll know I’m a big fan of camping. Whenever I see a wedding that’s in a woodland setting, or has tents and teepees, it makes me want to get married immediately! This IS the dream for me. I love the cosiness, the rustic charm, the relaxed nature of it all…
Glamping could be one of the big hen do ideas for 2013 too. Also awesome!

3. Beer & fast food
I love the idea of the food and drinks at weddings getting more relaxed. I’ve never been one for fuss or fancy and a lot of us prefer these simpler foods anyway (we just get carried away come wedding day!) Why we feel the need to have a sit down three course meal if our favourite food is pizza is beyond me. If you love pizza, have pizza! Or burgers, or beer…
I’m a sucker for sexy stationery design and neon lights so the growing trend to incorporate text in your big day is one I say ‘YES!’ to…
5. Patterns & print
Patterns and prints on dresses, tablecloths, altar backdrops… colour and creativity can shine through with this one so I’m loving it…

All you need is love
I love looking at wedding inspiration (I imagine that’s obvious otherwise why on earth would I have been blogging about weddings all this time!), but really if a wedding has two people in it, and they’re madly in love, then I’m a fan. Trends come and go and everyone has different taste… but provided you have a wedding that’s true to you, at that time in your life, it’ll be bloomin’ perfect. And don’t let anybody tell you otherwise!
