2013 Wedding Trends
Each year there are trends that every bride to be can see filling the pages of wedding periodicals and appearing in the nuptials of celebrities and champagne budget brides. Is it possible to achieve some of these fashionable chic trends without breaking the bank? I have taken the Top Thirteen 2013 Wedding Trends according to The Huffington Post and given them a friendly beer budget makeover without losing the elegance, style and your wallet!
CHAMPAGNE TREND #1
- Elegance- Long dresses, black tie, crystals and gold china are returning for sophisticated affairs full of elegance and luxury
BEER BUDGET MAKEOVER
- Gold and black accents -You can add hanging crystals to your centerpieces (look for prisms or glass over plastic) and simple black and gold accents in places like seat covers, napkins, tablecloths and seating cards. Most venues offer you the option to customize your linen color choices at no additional cost! You can also have bridesmaids wear long full length gowns to give the night an Oscar-esque feeling! Another substitute for pricey hanging crystals can be glass icicle ornaments (especially if you hit holiday clearance sales). I found the ones below on Amazon for $5.65 for 12. You can also check Craigslist to see if any brides are ready to sell them after their big day!
