Fall 2012 Wedding Trends

Fall 2012 will see more and more individuality in wedding preparations than ever before.  From dresses that are all over the map in color and style to individualized wedding favors, invitations, and dessert.

Excitement is abound as the number of people that got engaged during the holidays starts making plans for late summer/early fall vow exchange.

Trends in Dresses – from colors to lace, plunging necklines, open backs, and mini-covers for the arms, there’s no lack of individuality in wedding dress options.  In the realm of dresses, there is really something for every body type and some you have to see to believe!

Trends in Favors – the gifts you give your friends and family are one of the number of things they have to remember your special day, so why not make it as individual as the love you and your spouse-to-be share.  There are numerous opportunities to highlight your tastes!

Trends in Flowers – more and more people are going with what’s in local and available rather than trying to match the wedding colors exactly.  We’ve even pinned a few on our Pinterest account if you’d like to see some of that’s been going on at The Mackey House lately.

Trends in Dessert – not that the traditional wedding cake has been completely taken a back seat, but a number of couples are moving toward individualized tastes.  Everything from cupcakes to candy buffets to ice cream sundaes – wedding couples are looking for more than white cake and white icing for after-dinner sweet-tooth celebration.

Trends in Pictures – while wedding pictures themselves are in nature traditional, many couples are choosing to highlight their unique styles and personalities in the pictures they will remember their special day by (both in wedding and engagement).  Some of the incredible photographers we work with at The Mackey House have captures a few of these once-in-a-lifetime moments, shared them with us, and now, you can catch them on our Facebook Photo Gallery.

Creating the memorable day of when you and your spouse-to-be started your life together should be an extension of the love you both share, so don’t be afraid to highlight your personalities.  We’ve given you a few ideas here, but there are a myriad of options available.  Let us know if we can help you plan for your day, your way!
