As we look back on another year gone by, we're reflecting on the biggest trends in weddings from 2013. These wedding styles, colors, and accessories aren't all new (nor are they "over" -- we expect to see more of them in 2014!) but they really caught on in 2013. Here are our top ten favorites:
1. Art Deco.
2. Wedding gowns with elegant and dramatic backs.
3. Neutral bridesmaids dresses.

Bridesmaids dresses in shades of blush, ivory, and beige (or a combination of these hues) made bridal parties look romantic and ethereal this year.
4. Floral crowns.
5. Mint green.
6. Wedding dresses with long sleeves.
7. Gold everything.

We saw a lot of gold wedding details this year, but gold foil invitations are one of the new styles we expect to see a lot more of in 2014.
8. Playful and colorful decor.

In 2013, there was a return to the simpler ways to celebrate: colorful confetti, glitter, pennants, balloons, and paper decorations.
9. Woodland creatures.

Woodsy rustic weddings have been popular for a few years now, but 2013 saw the introduction of several whimsical forest animals into the decor. The most popular? Deer.
10. Marriage equality.

This wasn't exactly a trend, but we were still thrilled to see more states allowing gay couples to marry and more and more same-sex couples heading down the aisle. Cheers to more happy couples in 2014!
