2013 Wedding Trends

Happy New Year! Similar to fashion, wedding trends are constantly changing. Most of our couples opt for a traditional wedding and ignore the fad, but for those of you that want a contemporary and trend driven wedding see the below for 2013 wedding trends – I’m loving them!


Coloured wedding shoes

This trend has been going for a while now and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon.

Crystals and bling were a big part of weddings in 2012. I haven’t seen this trend fade in the UK, which I’m glad of as I love a bit of sparkle.

Art Deco

I predict Art Deco weddings to be a big wedding trend for 2013. Think lace, pearls, fur, feathers, gorgeous jewelery, and silky materials.

Bridal Style Boutiques



Over the past few years weddings have become much more personalised than they used to be. Couples have monograms, they name tables after personal places, people, or things, and  they’re hands on with DIY projects. This year we will see even more personalisation in every wedding across the globe.

Fabulous Wedding Shoes

Looking fabulous is often a top priority for both the bride and groom. Today I’m going to share some gorgeous wedding shoes some of our brides have worn. Enjoy!

The City Bride

The famous red sole is a perfect pair to any wedding dress. These round toed Christian Louboutins are truly one of a kind but for a slightly cheaper traditional pair of white slippers head over to Benjamin Adams

The Chic Bride

These sexy open toed sling backs were designed by the king of shoes: Jimmy Choo. A coloured wedding shoe is very sexy, fun, and playful. For a cheaper alternative to a coloured slingback head over to Rainbow Club

The Glamorous Bride

For the queen of crystals and all things bling there’s nothing better then sliding on a diamante encrusted shoe. These stunning shoes are bride worthy and  deserve as much attention as the bride herself (well, almost!). These shoes are from Gucci but those on a budget can find crystal wedding shoes at Dunes.

The Traditional Bride

Strappy Jimmy Choo sandals are a perfect finish to a silk satin gown that flows beautifully in the wind. Many modern brides choose strappy sandals but they’re not for everyone. For a cheaper alternative to Jimmy Choo try Dunes Shoes.

The Classic Bride

These gorgeous Stuart Weitzmans are perfect for a bride who wants to have a little edge on the traditional look.

Southern Style Wedding

I’m currently working with a gorgeous bride-to-be who wants a traditional Southern style wedding that whispers elegance. Southern weddings are all about details, mason jars, and a rustic/vintage feel and look. Today I’m showing you ways you can display flowers using mason jars, cake stands, apothecary jars, and even getting creative by placing floral displays on oval trays covered in lace, on rustic bookshelves, and so on. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do!

Ruffled wedding gowns

Ruffled wedding gowns have been spotted on the bridal runways for the past few seasons. My eyes always burn then turn into joyful waterworks when I see designs this beautiful. So gorgeous, in fact, that I have a ruffled Oscar de la Renta bride framed in my office.

Wedding Monogram Etiquette

Monograms have become increasingly popular with weddings and are staples in parts of the world such as the Southern US. If you choose to have a monogram on your stationery, napkins, dance floor, or anywhere else you need to consider a few things so you don’t breach etiquette.

First, if you’re having a duo-gram (a monogram with the initials of the couple’s first name and the first letter of the groom’s last name) this should only be seen after the ceremony. You are not Mr. and Mrs. xxx until after the ceremony so you should save showing off your new last name until after the celebration.

Second, if you want to have a monogram for your printed materials in advance of the ceremony or during the ceremony (invitations, order of service, etc), then use the first initials of the couple’s first name.
