The 2013 fashion season is already underway, and that includes wedding fashion. If you have chosen to celebrate your big day in 2013, you are probably busy (and stressed!) with the preparations and getting everything ready for such a special event.
Although you may have a few ideas in place as to how you would like your wedding to be, you do not want to miss out on some of the latest wedding trends for 2013. This article will provide you with some ideas that you might want to incorporate into your wedding day plans.
Diamond Engagement Rings
The current trend when it comes to diamond engagement rings is that the bigger they are, the better. Rings sporting an all-round ornate diamond band are in fashion, specially those that are combined with large precious stones like sapphires, rubies, or pale green diamonds.
Table Setting Decorations
One word: mint. This is one of the colours for the 2013 season, and it will surely add a classy and refreshing touch to your wedding table decorations. If you combine this tone with details in gold, so much the better.
Lace and floral patterns dominate the 2013 wedding trends when it comes to dresses. We have seen the main bridal designers include silk and tulle fabric flowers that cinch and highlight your waist or add a delicate touch to your shoulders. You should also consider convertible wedding gowns, as these are set to be very popular next year.
When it comes to wedding jewellery, we often think of wedding bands, tiaras, and dainty necklaces. And while you certainly don’t want to forget your wedding bands, you should also pay attention to other aspects of wedding jewellery. Have you considered wedding bouquet jewellery? This will be a hot trend next year. You can choose from sparkly diamond swirls, pearl pendants, and fully decorated bouquets featuring brooches and white gold inserts.
So you want something more than a honeymoon on the beach? Or perhaps you want a honeymoon on the beach and something more. In any case, 2013 will see the rise of some hot honeymoon destinations. The best part of it? You don’t even need to travel that far! Here are some ideas:
Les Sources de Caudalie, in southern France. This is a 5-star hotel and spa set amidst the famous vineyards of Bordeaux and where exquisite food and wine feature strongly.
The Transcantabrico, a luxury train in the style of the Orient Express that takes you on a 14-day journey through the green landscapes of northern SpainCapri island, just off the Italian coast.
Capri is known for its beaches, caves, dramatic scenery, and for being a favourite retreat among celebrities.
The so-called “goodnight stations” have become more and more common in weddings throughout the world. In 2013 we are likely to see many a wedding reception end with this classy touch of hospitality.
Think about it: how many times have you driven for a few hours in order to attend to a wedding? After a full day away from home, the prospect of driving back is not particularly pleasant. This is where goodnight stations come into place, as they allow you to send your guests off with a nice (and edible) detail. Think of high-energy treats and comfort food, such as homemade chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon buns, apple and caramel custard, raspberry cheesecake, and of course, a range of hot and cold drinks, depending on the season. Some ideas are fruit punch, eggnogg, mulled wine, and freshly brewed coffee.
