Over the last few years, choosing a bridal shoe has become a lot of fun! Bridal shoes used to look the same. Most wedding shoes were white or ivory satin pumps with little to no sparkle or embellishment. Not today! There are so many shoes to choose from that will give you that wow factor you are looking for! I have listed below my top five favorite wedding shoe trends for next year.
One trend that is not going away any time soon is the sparkly wedding shoe. In 2012, an all sparkly wedding shoe reigned supreme. In 2013, the all sparkle shoes will still be around but some designers are only using heavy sparkles on the heel of the shoe. One look that was on the runways for 2013 was straps that looked like a necklace for your ankle…LOVE this look!
Another trend that is only getting bigger in wedding shoes is brides wearing the color blue! Brides are using their blue shoes as their “something blue”. Plus it adds a splash of color to their bridal look.
A new trend emerging is the use of prints. Prints of all kinds are already being used for the wedding decor and are now showing up in bridal shoes. For example, look at these beautiful floral shoes. Don’t be afraid to be bold and choose your favorite pattern to wear like these cheetah shoes!
I think everyone knows how popular vintage weddings are and in 2013 you will see lots of weddings inspired by the 1920’s. These booties are a perfect example of the vintage style and look of the 20’s.
You can still find plain white, ivory or nude wedding shoes for 2013 but many shoes for next year will not lack embellishments! Shoes will now match the wedding dresses by using lace, ruffles and bows. Now you can find the perfect match to your wedding dress instead of wondering which shoes to choose!
Which wedding shoe trend do you love? Which one do you wish would go away?

Patterns are showing up all over the wedding industry and one of the patterns showing up in 2012 and on trend for 2013 is floral! You will start to see weddings incorporating floral patterns in to almost any detail of their wedding. From the wedding attire to the wedding details, floral details give a romantic and vintage feel.
Floral invitations are a great way to give your guests the first glimpse in to the floral theme and overall feeling of your wedding.
Bridesmaids dresses are one of my favorite ways to use floral at your wedding! I even love blending different floral dresses in coordinating colors.

Use floral details at the reception like floral table runners or napkins. One of the biggest things to remember when incorporating floral patterns into your wedding is to try and mix and match patterns. Try not to match everything to one floral and pick coordinating patterns and blend them together. Using one floral pattern throughout the wedding can begin to look over the top and not current.
Of course incorporating floral centerpieces pulls the theme together. You can also use garden flowers in a bud vase with a name tag attached for the place cards and they can double as a great wedding favor.
Another great wedding favor is a packet of seeds for your guests to make their own flower garden. Love the beautiful sayings painted on the packet of seeds.
Finish off your theme with an ah-mazing hand painted floral wedding cake!
