2013 Wedding Trend: Floral Wedding

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.

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.

Floral Bridesmaid Dresses

For the longest time bridesmaid dresses were undesirable. The fit was awful, the colors were hideous and the material made it a dress that you would never wear again!   Today all of that is changing.  Brides are giving their girls more freedom to choose a dress that they not only feel comfortable in but also a dress they look fabulous in.

One of the newest trends in bridesmaid fashion is floral printed bridesmaid dresses!  This ultra girly, vintage style dress is perfect for a Spring or Summer wedding and looks great for an outdoor ceremony or reception.

For an evening wedding or a more formal affair choose a floral maxi dress.  The length adds a touch of elegance and with the right fabric can be absolutely breathtaking.

If you want a bold look to your bridesmaids dresses, have your girls choose different colors and floral patterns.  If you decide on this look, a great way to pull it all together is to choose a more simple bridesmaid bouquet that is the same for all of the girls.

We want to know your thoughts on this ultra feminine bridesmaid dress trend.  Leave us your comments!

Happy Planning!
