The hubby and I had a jammed pack weekend full of festivities. Dinner with our favorite chef couple, The Garcia’s of Lovable Foods and their fabulous children. They inspire us so much. It’s always a pleasure spending QT time with the fam.
Not to mention the delicious food! Did I say we had a homemade taco bar? Inspired us so much that the hubby took his hand at re-creating the experience with empanadas.
Here’s me headed to a dear friends nuptials. Congrats to the lovely couple again!
And last but not least, since I didn’t get a chance to attend this month’s Engage!12, I decided to inpire myself by working on my inspiration board for 2013.
I have so many excited new things to share with you guys I am literally busting at the seams, but in due time… What did you do for the weekend?
Hey lovelies! Today’s post is from our guest blogger, Priti Patel. Priti has worked with several wonderful wedding blogs, including Bowties & Bliss, Brenda’s Wedding Blog, Pretty Little Weddings, Utterly Engaged, and has now graced our blog as well. Read the deets below to find the scoop on Spring 2013 Wedding Fashion Trends…
Spring 2013 Wedding Fashion Trends
Every bride wants a dress that flatters her figure and makes her feel beautiful in a unique way. Whether it is about vintage-inspired details with a modern twist, simple lace elegance, or a blast of color, the Spring 2013 trends for wedding dresses have a little something for everyone. Keep these trends in mind while you search for the dress you will walk down the aisle in.
Colored wedding dresses have been popular with celebrities for years, inspiring a trend of non-white wedding gowns in the latest collections for brides looking for a little less tradition and a lot more “wow” factor. Spring 2013 wedding dress trends are revealing subtle hues of pink, cream, blue, and for the daring, even black. Many celebrities like Jessica Biel have opted for a wedding dress in a shade of pink like this beautiful blush gown from the White by Vera Wang Collection at David’s Bridal.
Dramatic backs are one of the most glamorous trends for spring wedding gowns. Designers have made sure that brides look as beautiful going as they do coming. Keyhole backs are a subtle detail that can make such a romantic statement on your wedding day. There are also plenty of other options such as halter tie bows that offer a sexy, modern twist on wedding dresses from the past. Guests will take notice as the bride’s back is usually on display during the ceremony, as well as the first dances.
Peplum dresses have been a big trend in the collections of the designers lately, including wedding dress designers. This style adds an airy, light layer of fabric to the waist of the gown that is meant to flatter the bride’s figure and proportion. You can expect this to be a popular spring trend for women that desire a delicate, but dramatic, fashion-conscious bridal look.
Every Fall and Spring, Pantone, the world renowned authority on color, releases a Fashion Color Report. This report is based on the use of certain colors in the latest collections of major designers. The Fashion Color Report Spring 2013 is full of beautiful bold and bright colors that you can expect to see all over as part of wedding color schemes for and for bridesmaid dresses.
What is your favorite trend for the Spring season? Are you planning on incorporating any into your wedding?
