Hello all! As promised, we’re going to talk about some of the rising trends for 2013. And for reference, if you want to take a look at others, I found the top five from The Knot.

First off, how many of you watch Downton Abbey? I do! Well, I haven’t seen the most recent season, but I’ve seen some of it on Netflix. That show (and of course the beautiful Kate Middleton’s popularity) are going to be influencing weddings and events this year. “English Romance,” as The Knot calls it, is bringing charm and elegance to receptions. What do I mean by English Romance? Let me just show you…

How about this stunning Jenny Packham gown??

How about this stunning cloche veil? It just oozes innocence and class.

And the braided headbands are still going to be popular this year. Like this one from Brides

So how about decor? Low arrangements, decorative chargers, and tons of gold are sure to be huge.

Here’s a bouquet with some stunning English roses. I know a little cliche, but it’s applicable!

And I adore this combination of candlesticks, candles, and low florals from Marcy Blum

Stunning, right?! I love the warmth of the golds and pinks. Plus, it’s perfect for outdoor or indoor, so it’s a year-round trend! You can’t go wrong! Well, I guess you can if you were trying to get the English romance feel but you use really modern decorations… But still, it wouldn’t be wrong, just different!

Much love,
