However, before we do that – we must take a look back on all of our fab fav’s of 2012. This year has been amazing and we couldn’t be more thankful for all the phenomenal vendors that we have worked with and the beautiful couples that have come our way. It has been a great year thanks to all of you and it’s hard not to look back on this year of fabulousness with a smile knowing that we have the best jobs and the best brides! Of all the blogs, magazines, and unique visions and ideas that have been sent our way, we can narrow it down to our top 5 favorite wedding trends of 2012. So here they are…

5. Loving the Lace – Although lace has always been around, it was really around this year! All the way from dresses to candle holders, we were loving the lace. It brings such a romantic and classic feel to a wedding and really helps bring in that Southern Charm!

4. Beautiful Broaches – It’s amazing what a small broach can do to a bouquet or to the waistline of a simple gown. We can’t forget to mention the beautiful broach bouquets that came into trend and totally blew us away. Such a unique and stunning piece that can stay with you forever!

3. Sparkles – Every bride just wants a little bit of sparkle, and there is no better way to bring that into your wedding than through metallic and sequins. This is a trend that we have been falling all over since the minute we laid eyes on it and were quick to incorporate it any way we could. It brings the perfect amount of glam and sparkle to really impact your venue and stun your guests.

2. Backless Brides – We can’t even explain our love for some of these backless dresses or dresses with an intricate lace back that just have us swooning. We really think this is one of the hottest new bridal trends and still incredibly classy – no one will be able to take their eyes off of you with this style!

1. Obsessed with Ombre – You have seen it in our shoot and in our prior blogs – what can we say, we are obsessed. It’s so beautiful and contemporary and brings a whole nother spin to the classic Charleston weddings that we have seen. You can do so much with this ombre effect and we never cease to be impressed!

Check out some of these trends below and don’t be afraid to carry them with you into 2013! We hope everyone enjoys the remainder of their 2012! Have a safe New Year!
