In our last blog post we shared 2012 color trends with you, so today we want to share four general wedding trends that come to us from St. Louis Weddings on what you can expect to see brides engaging in this year.
Brides will save money and the environment as they incorporate environmentally friendly touches to their wedding. More brides will be choosing locally grown flowers, re-purposing old items for centerpieces ,and purchasing recycled invitations.
Many brides will choose vintage and rustic decor this year. Brides will be achieving this feeling by decorating with old antiques, refurbished thrift store items, and old wedding photos from both families on the tables at the reception.
Think Outside the Church
Many couples will choose to be married at an outdoor location, such as a beautiful garden or a gorgeous backyard, as opposed to a church.
Having an outdoor ceremony is just one way to make your wedding memorable.
Do-it-yourself projects have been very popular among brides for the past few years, and this year is no exception. More and more brides are turning to DIY projects like printing their own invitations, writing their own place cards and creating centerpieces themselves. If you have the time and the creativity, you can add a lot of home made touches to your special day.
St. Louis Weddings recommends taking it one DIY project at a time to avoid overload.
