2012 Spring & Summer Wedding Trends…My Favs at Least

You know I’m always looking for home décor ideas. Noodle and I actually went browsing over the weekend at one of my favorite ATL design shops-Z Gallerie. Unfortunately, I want to change every room in my house every time I go in this store. At one point during my stroll, I had to say to myself, “Cyn, you have a great home. Just be thankful and grateful for what you have!” That was my reality check. But beyond the stunning setups, I saw some unintentional (and fabulous) ideas for weddings-lots of color, sparkly things, florals, and fabrics.

Just yesterday I was having an email convo with my cousin’s fiancé about their upcoming wedding. We exchanged some ideas and I realized… it’s wedding season!!!! Another secret obsession of mine is browsing online wedding photos. In fact, every Wednesday, Essence.com sends out Bridal Bliss, which is an e-newsletter featuring a gallery of images from a lucky couple’s recent wedding. I figured I’d share some of my favorite ideas from Bridal Bliss, along with what the experts (www.theknot.com) are calling The Top 2012 Spring & Summer Wedding Trends.

My Favorite Top 2012 Wedding Trends from The Knot:

Ritzy Ranch Weddings-nothing better than combining a rural setting and glitz for a beautifully intertwined experience

Check out my rural setting (the hills of St. Lucia), with a formal wedding ceremony from my 2007 wedding

I still wanted a formal wedding gown eventhough I had a destination wedding. I loved how my dress looked against the breathtaking, natural hills and ocean of St. Lucia.

Whimsical, Enchanting Flowers & Bouquets-always in season and an appropriate choice for blushing brides

Panoramic Guest Portrait-the perfect way to capture a photo of all your guests

Here’s my panoramic guest photo

This photo was easy to capture since we had an intimate wedding. Look! I changed dresses.

Check out some of my other favorite wedding ideas for the bold, simple, or modern couple.
