Hot Wedding Trends for 2012
The wedding season is fast approaching and it’s looking like 2012 is going to be one of the biggest years yet for people tying the knot. RMF Entertainment is ready for our biggest year. We have already noticed changing trends and want to share them with you soon to be brides. This is our 6th year in business, and I gotta say that it’s fun watching this industry change. At the same time I think it’s important for people getting married to know what to look for.
Bridal Gowns – What says romance more than Victorian-style. Sleeves and illusion necklines provide an aura of royalty for every bride.
Full-Scale Themes – More than a color palette themes are carried through from the invitations to the flowers to the linens to the dessert. Some popular themes include: Vintage, Rustic & Nautical. But creativity knows no bounds, so pick one that reflects you & show it in the details.
Outdoor Venues – Natural settings are hugely popular for the beauty and ambiance that they provide & the minimal decor that is required. Popular places include: Vineyards, Gardens & Farms.
Dessert Tables – Gone are the days of only having a wedding cake and maybe a groom’s cake. Today, couples are offering up their favorite desserts at their receptions. From pies to cupcakes to cookies, it’s a buffet of beautifully displayed flavors and options for guests.
Professional Disc Jockey Entertainment – In 2007 more and more people were starting to use Ipod’s for their music needs. It was more of a DYI industry and a good way for Bride and Grooms to save money. It only took 4 years for people to realize that saving money on entertainment and doing it yourself is a disastrous idea. The number one thing people are going to remember the most about your wedding: Did they have fun? Professional DJs and MCs are being sought after more and more going into 2012.
Good Night Station – Couples now are combining food and favor into a fun, interactive station for their guests. Buffets of pastries, doughnuts or candy, provide guests with a goody bag to go.
Faux Flower Decor – Whether paper, fabric, tissue or feathers; Bouquets, centerpieces & pomander balls aren’t just made from fresh flowers anymore and are used in non-traditional ways.
Personalized DIY decor – This is not a new trend but continues strong as many brides are getting crafty to showcase their personality & theme and save some money. The creativity is in using ‘found’ and natural elements to create centerpieces, escort cards, guest book alternatives, swizzle sticks, table numbers & decor.
Good luck to all you soon to be brides out there! We look forward to hearing from you in the future.
