Wedding Trends for 2012

Re posted from-
Are you getting married this year? Or maybe you are a bridesmaid or the mother of a 2012 bride? Find out what new trends will be on the horizon for 2012 weddings to get a jump on all of the planning.

Photography Trends: For generations, wedding photography was very predictable. Group shots of the bridal party, posed portraits of the newlyweds, and pictures of the guests at their tables were the norm. To mix it up a little, brides might ask for a combination of color and black and white photography. Things have changed radically in the last ten to fifteen years in the field of wedding photography. First came the photojournalism trend, then along came digital imagery. In the last few years, brides and grooms have gone crazy for offbeat effects, images taken in non-traditional places like alleys and carnivals, and avant garde photo shoots like “trashing the dress”. There is an interesting shift in 2012 wedding photography, back towards the classic photos, but done with a fresh twist. A big trend for this year is the panoramic photograph, which includes everyone at the wedding in one wide shot. The newlyweds are front and center, along with their parents and the bridesmaids in their pretty dresses and bridesmaid jewelry. Behind them, everyone else is included in the picture. What a cool visual guest book it will make to have one picture with everyone who was there to share your wedding day.
Wedding Trends For The New Year

Wedding Accessories Trends: Whether your style in bridal gowns is classic or edgy, vintage or modern, your accessories are one area where you can feel free to experiment. They allow brides and bridesmaids the opportunity to express their personality and make their wedding day attire feel very unique. One major trend for 2012 bridesmaid jewelry and bridal jewelry is big necklaces. Try a bib style necklace with some color to add a spark to a gown with a strapless neckline. High heel shoes are very much on trend for this wedding season, particularly those with a slight platform and a peep toe. Chic little birdcage veils will remain popular through 2012 as an alternative to the traditional veil.

Wedding Flower Trends: Romantic flowers are back in a big way for 2012 weddings. We will see loosely arranged bouquets overflowing with white cabbage roses and greenery. Pink peonies, apricot sweet peas, and creamy dinner plate dahlias are other blossoms that capture the romantic spirit. Bouquets should be loosely gathered and allowed to gently cascade (just a little bit – nothing like the contrived cascades of the 1980s). For the wedding centerpieces, continue the romantic feeling with soft bouquets arranged in elegant footed urns. Vintage inspired birdcages and terrariums are unique vessels for creating centerpieces with an antique flavor.

Wedding Stationery Trends: Express your style with a unique wedding invitation! A fabulous new trend in 2012 wedding stationery is watercolor effects. Look for stationery that is softly streaked with shades of blue, peach, pink, lilac, or spring green to use for your invitations, save the date cards, programs, menus, and more. Watercolor wedding stationery is unexpected, yet so pretty you will wonder why no one thought of it before. It is a great option when you want to create wedding invitations that are high original, yet not edgy. When you send out a very special invitation, you can be sure that your guests will be very excited to come and see what other fabulous things you have planned for your 2012 wedding!
