As the wedding season is quickly sneaking up, I wanted to share what trends I've come across that will be incorporated in many of 2012's weddings.
1. Vintage AND Modern–Yep, a combination of vintage beauty and a modern flare is a big wedding trend this year. The super romantic use of delicate lace paired with a contemporary accent, like a ultra sleek seat cover or eccentric centerpiece, is what you should try to go for in order to achieve this trend. These opposites totally attract all the attention that you want on your big day!
2. Bright Jewel Tones–Trendy as well as sophisticated. These words describe the bride who will incorporate bright color blocks in her wedding this year. This is a trend that must be approached carefully because, if you don't choose the right color pairings, your wedding could potentially go from chic to cheap-looking. It's important to choose colors on the color spectrum that compliment each other (teal and purple, for example). This look is extremely bold and will definitely grab the attention of your guests!

3. Different Venues–This trend is one major way to make your wedding truly unique. Lately, brides are going out-of-the-box when it comes to choosing the location for the ceremony as well as the reception. Brides are trading in hotel ballrooms for botanical gardens and historic buildings in order to reflect the couples' personal style and personality.

Regardless if you follow these trends or not, your wedding should be what you want it to be and make sure you incorporate who you are as a couple.
