// Hot Wedding Trend for 2013: #9 Garlands//

Today’s Guest Blog is by Gail Oliver, author of 663 Must-Have Wedding Ideas

Brides are always looking for easy DIY décor, and garlands are one of the easiest. Also called buntings, garlands have become hot again, but they are being hung in different ways – not simply strung across the ceiling but hung vertically, along the front of the head table, used as backdrops or wrapped around pillars.

Some Materials for DIY Garlands:

  • Photos – engagement photos, pics of the wedding party
  • Vintage fabric
  • Laser cut paper
  • Tassels
  • Beads or jewels
  • Pompoms
  • Paper letters
  • Maps
  • Fabric flowers
Enjoy some of these great ideas for garlands:

The release of the movie “The Great Gatsby” will bring the roaring 1920s back into fashion, especially as the vintage trend continues to be hot. The decade will be particularly seen in wedding fashion with flapper styles, just below the knee dresses, art deco patterns and stylish headpieces.

// Hot Wedding Trend for 2013: #5 Laser Cuts//

WRITTEN BY GUEST BLOGGER GAIL OLIVER, OLIVERINK 

Laser Cuts, which is essentially the cutout of a design, can be seen in everything from fashion to paper goods, and it will be a big trend for weddings in 2013.

Why will laser cuts be popular? Because laser cutting gives the look of lace, which is great for those planning a vintage wedding theme. It also makes more a more stunning design, for an invitation for example, because another material or color can be seen through the cutout design.
