|Will Rustic Get Rusty?|
So we've determined that anything goes for your gown. It should speak to you, compliment you, make you feel special. While trends like illusion backs and necklines will be around for a while thanks to their sheer beauty (no pun intended,) and lace will never go out of style, what about wedding themes? Will the rustic trend get rusty? Is vintage going to look like your Grandma's wedding? Will shabby chic just look shabby? When you celebrate your 50th wedding anniversary will your photos stand out like shoulder pads and Hammer pants?
Hopefully, it won't. If you do a theme right by mixing together touches of the trend throughout your day and the theme says something about you and your beloved's personality and style, you can't go wrong. Just like wedding gowns, theme or no theme, the important thing is to choose everything that speaks to you as a couple. A great place to start is the venue. Marta Segal at the Huffington Post had a great article called Don't Judge the Marriage by the Wedding that I think says it all. She also did a great face-off of 2012 trends and what they will turn into. I'll recap the venue trends:
Rustic to Ranch

So many more great trends to come in 2013! Stay tuned for more to be featured in our Sunday Styles and Tuesday Trends. I'm working on some inspiration boards to highlight new and trendy ideas and how you can put them all together. Until then-
