It seems like every other weekend, you’re getting a new invitation to somebody’s wedding. A brother, a friend from college, a colleague at work, a cousin’s cousin’s son…Well,Ā that is because Spring is one of the most popular times to get married!

It is also one of the most beautiful times to get married. Spring is chalk-full of fresh blooms and new life (perhaps a symbolic reason Brides and Grooms take the plunge this time of the year!)

Whatever your preferences, true wedding-lovers all over the world can agree: there is an allure about Spring weddings that is incredibly unique and hard to beat! (Though, wait until Autumn and we may be saying the same thing about Fall Weddings šŸ˜‰ )

As a matter of fact, we just had a beautiful Bride and Groom that asked us to provide the florals for their wedding. Mr. and Mrs. Steiner were kind enough to share their fantasticĀ photos with us. And now we are going to share them with you!

We love our Brides and Grooms! ā¤

This just in from one of the nation’s leading experts in all things Weddings: new wedding trends for 2013! (You can alsoĀ findĀ said expert and following trendsĀ at http://www.qohweddings.com/blog/)

According to our expert, here’s what’s in and what’s out.

1.) IN- a return to elegance, namely the plated dinner, muted and neutral colors (blush is big), sophisticated romance, etc.

2.) IN- GOLD! Gold embellishments here, there, and everyhwere.

3.) IN-Lounge furniture at cocktail receptions. People want to sit comfortably rather than stand stiffly at tables.

4.) IN- Patterns, big and bold. Chevron, circles, stripes = YES!

5.) IN (and probably always will be) Lace. Lace hasn’t really ever gone out of style, and this year is no exception.

6.) OUT- the vintage suitcases and typewriters a.k.a.Ā the styled accents.

7.) IN- Simplicity. (Easy enough)

8.) IN- Mint green and all it’s friends like pale turquoise, sea foam green, and pale emerald

9.) IN- Love birds. Birds on invitations, as cake toppers, etc.

10.) IN- the 1920’s. This is really embodied by several of the already trends: gold, romance, lounge furniture and cocktails…

11.) IN- Going local. More Brides and Grooms are choosing to support local businesses and opting for what is in season for their weddings.

Speaking of which…here are some great examples. Romantic and bold, soft shades, and mint green are all focal points in these three separate arrangements.

Now thatĀ the Holidays are over andĀ it’s 2013, a huge wave of people are thinking about ONE thing: their upcoming weddings. Even if you’re already married or even if you’re never planning on taking the plunge, you probably know someone who is. So this post is really for everyone.

There are some really cool things trending in 2013. We’ll start with our FAVORITE topic: FLOWERS!

Popular Trends: Vintage, Simplistic One-Toned Bouquets, Modern Vivid Color, Country Garden

What’s in: Peonies.Ā  Peonies are beautiful, lush-looking blooms. It has been the most requested wedding flower for two years running! However, since they are only in bloom for 2 months out of the year, most brides will need another option.

Garden Roses are a similar flower that still have that super-luxurious feel.

Color Schemes:

Trends: Neautral, Shabby Chic (organic), Rustic, Luxury, Elegant, Black Tie

Another cool trend is in color pallette choices. This year, neutrals with pops of color are big. Greys, taupes, and creams are very elegant. And interestingly enough, in 2013 it won’t be taboo to mix and match your themes. So if you want classy china place settings and antler chandliers…go for it! Let your imagination run wild.

Here’s a beautiful example of a rustic-feeling wedding

Happy Planning!
