Fall/Winter 2011/2012 Wedding Trends

Print this Learning Center Idea
More traditional and less modern than in years past, this season's wedding trends feature a strong vintage appeal that adds to the romanticism of the wedding day. The growing trend of DIY (do-it-yourself) weddings has exploded, giving couples the opportunity to personalize their weddings while saving money. Romantic weddings are here to stay, moving away from stuffy indoor venues in favor of natural, rustic locations.
Feminine dresses add to the traditional romanticism. Shorter cocktail dresses and 1950's styles with tea-length skirts and sweetheart necklines will give your wedding a timeless appeal. Birdcage veils and longer chapel-length veils complete the look.

Sun-faded earth tones such as olive green, taupe, ivory, lilac and peach offer an additional element of vintage rustic appeal. Rich antique shades such as royal purple, navy, emerald and dark crimson contrast the natural shades with a majestic beauty. And don't forget about pewter grey and charcoal. Their popularity continues to grow and will be a welcomed addition to your wedding color palate.

Whether your jewelry is actually an heirloom or just has that appearance, vintage jewelry completes the look. Layered and cascading lariat-style necklaces and multi-stranded bracelets provide a gorgeous accent to complement the simpler dress designs. Bold earrings and ornate hair combs with brass filigree add detail and brilliance while the classic appeal of gold and pearls provide an elegant touch. Rich, jewel-toned crystals, rhinestones and gemstones are gaining in popularity, especially sapphires and emeralds in vintage-style engagement ring designs.
