Spring Wedding Trends of 2012

With weather in Savannah, GA, it’s hard to believe Spring isn’t already here – although in the world of wedding planning Spring literally is right around the corner.

The latest trends for Spring 2012 as we see them – seem to be the following:

1)     COLORS:  We know we talked about this last year, particularly Fall of 2011 and how much we touted dark browns and pastels – but this coming Spring, hold on to your hats – Pantone Tangerine Tango is not only gracing weddings, but is Color of the Year.  Bold and bright, this color would mix nicely or go-it-alone.  Although not alone in the wheel for Spring weddings, it certainly seems to be the trend setter in fashion colors.

2)     Dresses:  From deep V-necklines to high slit skirts, dresses seem to – pardon the reference Justin T. – bring sexy back.  Sparkle, drapes, ruffles, and more seem to show a partnership between glamour and bold that makes a real statement for the dress wearer.

3)     Hair:  Not to be outdone by clothing, hairstyles seem to mirror the need for statement making for 2012.  Braids for up-dos are making a comeback, however not quite like we’ve seen in the past.  Asymmetrical patterns, letting the hair flow on its own and not being afraid of imperfection, or maybe even a touch of “messy” helps accentuate the suave dress and thought out design.

4)     Cake:  For some, it really is all about the cake.  Typically not something we blog about most times, but this year, they are so elaborate and beautiful that we felt the need to include them.  From separate cakes for the bride, groom, and guests to works of art, these will take your breath away.

So, brides, get yourself together because we’re about to jump into Spring, and this year, it’s going to be a bright, sexy, and slightly messy affair…or in this case, season.
