It is always lovely to see children enjoying themselves at your wedding, but when the evening reception comes along and the children are getting weary, rather than ending your night early wouldn't it be nice to pop the children to bed and give yourself a little extra time to enjoy the celebrations?

White Rose Weddings - Wedding Trends for 2013

White Rose Wedding Trends for 2013

2013 is the year where we see couples wanting to personalise their day more and making it stand out. With so many options available anything goes. So its time to think outside of the box and be creative.


This year here in the UK think more sage/mint greens, purples and dusky pinks.

In the US

 More weddings will be less Shabby Chic and more Elegant in style.

This year patterns are going to be popular, from stripes and dots to delicate floral and bold patterns. These will be seen more and more within the venue decor, tablecloths, runners and even backdrops.

 If your bridegroom to really wanting to be a little different? this year give our men the chance to be a little more adventurous.

or even your bridesmaids


After last years Royal Wedding lace will be more popular with brides opting for elegant dresses just like Kate Middletons.


In 2013 couples will be putting even more emphasis on fun. With more couples are going for options, such as sweet tables, popcorn stands and ice cream vans. Personalised cocktails are becoming more popular.


More and more couples are falling in love with the idea of outdoor weddings and saying their vows surrounded by nature. This year these will become increasingly popular. In the UK as the weather is always so  I would always suggest that your venue has 
a back up plan. Popular choices are Tents and Tipi weddings.
