Wedding Inspiration: Hot Trends for Spring 2013

Wedding Inspiration | Photo by- Francesca PalazziWith wedding season just around corner, the latest spring wedding trends offer inspiration for every couple. This season the focus on customization continues to gain popularity as more couples look to put a unique spin on their ceremony and reception. As you create the wedding of your dreams, here’s three spring trends to help you personalize the details:

The New Venue

Couples are thinking outside the box when it comes to the location of their ceremony and party. For your wedding, consider booking a space that comes with its own beauty, like a favorite art gallery or museum. If you plan to have an outdoor wedding, think about using a family farm or childhood summer camp where you can play up the natural beauty and surroundings. Your choice of a unique venue location can show off personal style or tell about the special attachment you and your partner have to a space.

Have Fun with Food

Think whimsical and fun when planning the menu, especially for desserts and snacks. Many couples are now offering their favorite sweets like s’mores or a bar with different candies that make for fun, DIY food. Make this trend your own with a selection of your favorite sweet treats (for some delicious inspiration, look through these Foodgawker wedding food photos).

On the savory side, gourmet food trucks are another popular trend that can show off personal flavor. Bring in a late night truck for tacos or BBQ to keep guests full and the party going. And if you want to personalize a sit-down dinner menu, think back to childhood meals or the dishes eaten on a first date and let those memories inspire your food choices.

The Wedding Game

Great music and space to dance are still classic elements for having a fun reception but the new trend for wedding entertainment is all about the games. Bocce ball, croquet, and corn hole let your guests team up and have some wedding competition. These games are perfect for outdoor venues with plenty of space, and indoor receptions can work well with a small arcade or area for card games. If you want to personalize the games, try custom designing the game pieces with your initials or the wedding date.

Staying true to your personal taste never goes out of style, so always make any trend your own by customizing it the way you like best!
