my 2012 wedding trends & picks

here are a few of my 2012 wedding trends & picks

{flowers and fillers}
dusty miller
ice pink protea
garden roses

grey is the new black and mix with blushful colors (light pink, peach, sade green)
mustard yellow is the new version of yellow
coral red with mint or blue, replacing the very popular tiffany blue 
brown with rustic red and orange

alternating centerpieces, tall and short arrangements on the tables
uniques vases/containers (my own finds from flea markets),
create a cluster look on the table, mix and match small vintage containers, and use vintage books to have layer 

a {sweet heart} table is a must have, this is an opportunity for you and your new husband to sit and enjoy the moment by yourselves

make your own dessert bar/buffet {pies, macaroons, cake pops} make it "your own", go all out, you can never have too many treats on the table, your guest will appreciate them even to take home

unique table numbers, be creative and make it personal, a lot of great ideas online. this also includes specially made signs that you can place around your reception and ceremony

pick a venue that will have the best ambiance for your guest to enjoy! 
{a backyard wedding is as beautiful as having it a five-star hotel}

lastly, a good photographer that understands your style and expectations, it's a great idea to set the tone on your engagement session, make it a mini photo shoot for them.
i get disappointed when i don't see them capture the details of your special day. i highly recommend making a list and reminding them...
