Vintage Wedding Trends for 2013

Rent My Dust did an blog post last year about the wedding trends for 2012 so we wanted to follow up with a blog post for 2013.  Many of the same trends do apply for this year but some more have been added.  (I never did get to do that orange tangerine wedding in 2012 so maybe it will be here in 2013.)  We have done our research and think you will love the Trends for 2013.  If you have a moment, tell us what your favorite trend is or what you would like to see in 2013.


2013 Wedding Trend #1 ~ Mint!  Mint green and just about any other color green will be big in 2013.  Just look at these photos and you will see why!

Colorful New Year's Eve Wedding Idea's!


When you are asked to be a part of a styled shoot with some of the most talented vendors in Dallas, you say, YES PLEASE!! That's want happened when we were asked to be a part of this more modern shoot. We fell in love with all the amazing color. You can hear us saying, "We want to do a wedding just like this one!"

It was also featured in one of our favorite blogs, WEDDING CHICKS and here is an exert of what they said about this stylish shoot?

"A group of talented Texas wedding vendors collaborated on this incredible shoot that’s overflowing with color and personality. From the insanely creative vibrant wedding invites from Blue Eye Brown Eye, to the over the top paper flower arch at the ceremony. Hand crafted with love by Bows + Arrows. This is one of those inspirational shoots that makes you go wow! We can definitely see a fun and fresh couple celebrating their wedding on New Year’s Eve and throwing a bash like this. There are so many more ideas and fun pictures in the full gallery here all photographed by Ben Q. Photography. For fashion, the bride wore a Kate Spade Kimberly Bridal Dress. It was the perfect length to showcase her bright shoes and fun personality! The rhinestone collar added that touch of glamour that all brides want. For the reception, the bride added multiple headpieces from to enjoy her evening. This shoot shows how a bride can express her playful side and explore fun, bright DIY options for an unforgettable evening! Creating the ideal place for this fun couple to wed, Bows + Arrows crafted an archway in DIY fashion complete with paper flowers, pom-poms, pinwheels, fringe clusters and tassels all in fun, vibrant colors. Showcasing this archway is an aisle runner in geometric shapes with color-blocked petals. To keep the mood playful and casual, Bows + Arrows created a foral chandelier with strung garland in bright yellows and pinks. Since this bride’s event is anything but typical, they hung chandeliers to serve as the centerpieces that compliment the electric chevron runners provided by Love Dove Wedding Rentals. Kate Spade china added the element of class to the whimsical tablescapes. Thanks to one of our Hand-Picked wedding Rent My Dust, this shoot had the best of the best rentals for this fabulous extravaganza. You can learn more about Rent My Dust by clicking here."
