2012 Wedding Trend: Ruffles, Ruffles Everywhere

Ruffles are a huge wedding trend for 2012 and are showing up everywhere!  Invitations, bridal gowns, fashion accessories and wedding cakes are just a few of the ways ruffles are being used as one of the most popular embellishments! What isn’t more girly and fun than ruffles?  I have picked out some inspiration photos to show you ways that you can add ruffles in to your wedding.

Wedding gowns are one of the most popular ways ruffles are showing up in weddings in 2012!  Many designers are using ruffles to give off a soft, romantic feeling to their weddings gowns and girly girl’s like me are loving it!

My favorite is this ruffled party dress…how cute and fun!?

And don’t forget about adding ruffles to your shoes and accessories!

These shoes are the perfect match for a ruffled wedding gown.

With a ruffled dress, I think the perfect bouquet to carry would match your dress by using “soft” flowers with lots of petals to mimic the ruffled look on your dress like peonies, roses or lisianthus.

If you choose a ruffled wedding gown, why not use ruffles as the theme of the wedding?  Check out the DIY “ruffled” gold invitations?

These ruffled wedding cakes are a perfect way to add to the theme!

Wearing Flats on Your Wedding Day

After planning hundreds of weddings I have come to the conclusion….

That every bride needs a good pair of flats to wear on her wedding day!

 So many brides on their wedding day end up complaning about how bad their feet hurt and are begging for pictures end so they can kick off their high heeled shoes!  Trust me, no matter how expensive the high heeled shoes are they will eventually hurt your feet.  If you invest in a pair of flats you won’t have to worry…after the ceremony you can throw on a fabulous pair of flats and dance the night away.

Brides are even wearing flats for their ceremony!  Depending on the dress, the location, or maybe even your height:) high heeled shoes may not be prcatical for you so flats are your best option!

Flats are becoming very popular for brides and there are finally tons ofstyles to choose from. Here are some popular styles brides are wearing!

You can even choose to have your “something blue” be your wedding flats…

 Or you can rock some colored chucks under your dress!


 And lastly, I love the idea of wearing something for a great cause..Toms!

 If you are wearing flats on your wedding day we would love to hear about it!
