Happy New Year!! It’s that time of year again when we share with you the newest trends in the wedding industry for 2012 from hot colours to the newest bridal and styling ideas.
In 2012, a ‘return to elegance and simplicity’ is the key theme. NOT doing the same thing that has been done a hundred times before and making your wedding about you is another central theme that we have been advocating for years!!!!
White Weddings are IN! The elegance and simplicity of white lends itself to so many different settings & styles. From a romantic beach wedding to a modern, ultra chic contemporary villa wedding.
Glamor takes centre stage for 2012 weddings; 1930’s black and white, vintage touches, feathers…….
Tangerine Tango (Pantone #17-1463) is the colour of the year. A bold, happy & fun colour that’s not for the faint hearted! You don’t have to use it as your main colour however when teamed with other colours such as different shades of orange, shades of purple or even cobalt blue it adds a great pop of colour.
Local fun food. Food from your favourite restaurant, the use of fresh, local seasonal foods and fun things like live cooking stations even ‘Pasar Malam’ style food stalls will be big again this year.
Sweet treats. While wedding cakes are still a major part of the wedding, other desert options are proving to be a welcome addition to 2012 weddings:
- Waiter served desserts. Miniature, easy to eat sweets served to your guests on the dance floor is growing in popularity so your guests don’t have to stop their partying!
- Cupcakes, cookie bars and candy bars are here to stay for 2012 however personal touches are what will make this popular addition to many a wedding really your own. Great Aunt Betsie’s favourite anzac cookie recipe, a unique and personal display, your favourite flavours to name just a few ideas
- The Good Night Kiss is a small late night snack or beverage served to your guests towards the end of the evening or as they are leaving your wedding…. Gelato cones, miniature buckets of popcorn, fairy floss, take home snacks – the sky’s the limit!
We are happy to announce that the photo booth is here to stay in 2012!!! Yay!!! Incorporate unique props to add an extra dose of fun for you and your guests.
Just remember your wedding is all about you so incorporate as much or as little as you like and as we always say the most important thing to remember is to incorporate you & your fiances own personal style into the event – after all it is your day!!
