Wedding Trends 2012: Specialty Buffets

Category: Details, details, details   |   Author: Elizabeth   |   4 comments No colors

Goodness – January is a busy time! Now that we are finally approaching two thirds of the month, I think it’s time to post my last wedding trend 2012 before going back to the real weddings and vendor spotlights. I’ve really been enjoying this collection of wedding details, but what I’m really looking forward to are those details which no one would have guessed would turn up to be in fashion. 2012 will be a good year, I’m sure.

So: yes, I know – we’ve already seen dessert tables with delectable cakes and lots and lots of candy. Now that businesses are popping up offering this specifically (Candy Queen to name one), this will continue for sure… but we will also see spin-offs by creative brides who have a different specialty in mind. My husband, for instance, is an ice-cream fan – so a beautifully styled ice cream bar would have been totally up his ally. How about a Martini bar or a champagne bar? Or perhaps a coffee bar, complete with a barista, numerous coffee beans to choose from and a huge selection of chocolate spoons, sirups and sprinkles?

Wedding Trends 2012: Statement Necklaces

Category: Details, details, details   |   Author: Elizabeth   |   Leave a comment |

Although dresses with straps and sleeves are on the rise, we can’t deny that strapless gowns are a classic by now, and that there will be no shortage of these in 2012. Brides opting for simple necklines will ofted choose to add a little extra personality by pairing with statement jewelry, especially necklaces – with pops of colour and plenty of structure.

Wedding Trends 2012: Tangerine Tango

Category: Details, details, details   |   Author: Elizabeth   |   Leave a comment |

I had to, of course, mention the Pantone Colour of the year, Tangerine Tango, which is essentially the most orange of all oranges.

Orange is a fantastic colour to add in one’s palette to add a little quirky pop into the whole wedding scheme – in stationery and table decor especially. Use tropical flowers, or ranunculus, roses, gerber daisies or orange berries to add that lovely pop into flower bouquets and decorations. It can really make an impression paired with white, or it can be softened with pinks, corals and neutrals. Tone the orange down a bit, while at the same time adding contrast by adding slate grey into the mix. Or keep it fresh and summery with one of my favourite colour combinations: orange and aqua.
