Colorado Bridal Show: 2013 Trend Confirmation

Yesterday was such a great day at the Colorado Bridal Show! I had the pleasure of meeting a lot of brides-to-be, and cannot wait to have the opportunity to work with them! Since today is full of following up with said brides, this post is going to be short and sweet. After seeing all kinds of talented wedding vendors and what they had to offer yesterday, I wanted to post about some of the trends that are really making their mark in the wedding industry. Following are the top five trends I’m seeing, and it just so happens they’re really fun and easy to incorporate into real Colorado weddings.

Emerald Green is Pantone’s 2013 color of the year, which I am really excited about! It’s a color that’s gorgeous, rich, and can be mixed and matched with a lot of other colors to make a unique color palette that works with almost any theme. My favorite pairings are emerald with gold, emerald with peacock blue, and emerald with soft pink. Pretty!

Metallics and bling are a fun way to add some pizazz to your wedding, and what’s great is you can do as much or little as you’re comfortable with. Metallic cakes, sequined linens, and sparkly bridesmaid dresses are just a few of the countless ways you can indulge in this trend.

Vintage-inspired photography is king! There are a lot of great photographers who are making their names by focusing on photography with a vintage feel. Who wouldn’t want great wedding photos that are trendy and timeless?

Cupcakes and other confections are something brides are swooning for! Gone are the days where wedding cake is the standard — brides are putting as much effort into planning for dessert as they are for dinner! Check out my post, Life is Sweet, for some fun and delicious dessert options that fit perfectly into this trend.

Personal touches have always been something important to weddings, but now more than ever, brides are putting thought into making everything special to who they are as a couple, how they met, how he proposed…the list goes on! Some ways this trend is playing out: Selecting a venue that really embodies the couple’s personalities (and not just their wedding’s aesthetic), writing the ceremony from scratch, and using guest gifts and wedding entertainment as a way to further show who the couple is and what they love.

I’d love to hear from you! What is your favorite trend on this list, and why?
