We present the biggest wedding trends for 2013.
For several years now, body-hugging silhouettes have reigned supreme in bridal fashion. Fall 2013 collections, however, reversed that notion. Designers such as Reem Acra, Vera Wang (above) and Lazaro sent light and airy ball gowns down the runway, reminding us all that sometimes more is more.
Although emerald was announced Pantone’s Color of the Year, a different shade of green has been dominating wedding inspiration. A popular color for household items in the 1940s and 1950s, the vintage trend has certainly brought mint back to the forefront. This refreshing and versatile color pairs well with gold, coral, salmon or yellow.
The Great Gatsby
With the fast-approaching movie release and the resurgence in vintage weddings, The Great Gatsby movement has been gaining a lot of momentum. From elaborate headpieces to feather centerpieces to Art Deco venues, wedding details from the 1920s are popping up everywhere.
Wedding stationery has been taken to new heights with bespoke laser-cut designs. Precise and elegant, leading industry designers such as Ceci New York have been setting the standard for this intricate art.
Although the reception lounge was big in 2012, experts predict that it will be even bigger in 2013. Comfortable couches, plush pillows and romantic curtains set the scene for a place where guests can kick up their feet, mingle and relax the night away.
The Top Knot

Brides have been reverting to more sleek and classic styles, and the sophisticated knot has been at the top of the list (pun intended). In fact, our Fall/Winter 2012 cover bride, Bella, sported this no-fuss hairstyle on her special day.
Wedding cakes are getting brighter and bolder, and designs are ever-evolving. Whether they’re hand-painted, composed entirely of ruffles or completely naked, cakes in 2013 will be making a statement.
Event designers have found practically every use for garlands: chair decor, table runners, backdrops, headpieces, cake toppers and more. Their versatility and universal appeal ensures that we will be seeing more of them this coming year.
Rivaling their brides in the style department, grooms have been departing from the usual black tux. From bespoke suits to plaid shirts to vibrant bowties, 2013 will certainly be a stylish wedding year.

Bite-sized food allows brides and grooms to incorporate different styles and flavors into their wedding menu. This trend gathered steam toward the end of 2012, and it’ll only get bigger (or more miniature?) in 2013.
