2012 is only half over, and we’re already thinking about 2013 wedding trends! Of course the bride’s wedding gown takes center stage and next year there are some definite dress trends. Why not take some elements from your wedding gown and use them in your custom wedding invitations? Incorporate your fashion sense into your wedding stationary for 2013 with these hot trends.
For the “bigger is better” fans, designers are embellishing 2013 gowns with large, over-sized bows, ribbons, flowers and other details. Work this into your invites by printing a large embellishment on vellum and then wrapping your invites inside. The slightly transparent vellum will let your guests see what’s inside, but still have the embellishment as a prominent design element.
Sassy, short dresses have been around for years as a reception gown. For 2013, eliminate the formal floor-length gown, and opt only for the short, reception ready short dress to compliment your sassy, fun-loving personality. Take your flirty style to your wedding invitations with a custom wedding logo and keep your copy short and sweet — just like your dress!
Going for a more classic look? Lace is elegant, graceful and timeless. There are so many options for lace and like other embellishments, you can have a little or a lot. From lace detailing on the bodice or a dress completely covered, it’s hard to go wrong and designers know it. There are just as many options when it comes to incorporating a lace detail on your custom wedding invitations. And, a lace design compliments a nice script font beautifully!
Do you love all that shimmers? Then check out the crystal and ice trend of 2013. Designers are decorating simple (and not so simple) gowns with micro-beads and crystals to create a shimmering effect. Just think of how you’ll sparkle as you walk down the aisle and have your first dance in the spotlight on the dance floor. Adding shimmer to your wedding invitations can be as easy as printing on a shimmery paper. Or, if you really want to glam it up, we’ll strategically add crystals, big or small, to the invite for a bolder sparkle.
For the less traditional bride among us, check out a red wedding dress. Designers are making a statement for 2013 with luxurious and vibrant red dresses. These red dresses are inspired by the color of love and, did you know, red is the traditional wedding color palette in China? Your custom wedding invitations can highlight your vivacious spirit and bold wedding gown with red paper, embellishments, a custom logo or type.
