13 Weddings Trends and Ideas I Love

With today being Friday the 13th I thought it would be fun to do something that I've actually never ever done on my blog before. I am going to share with you my favorite wedding trends and ideas that I'm currently loving - 13 of them. Are any of these your favorite? Would you add any to the list?

1. Ombré Ruffle Cakes {this actually combines 2 of my loves - ombré and ruffles in one delectable treat}
from Cakes Decor - design by Fondant Flinger

2. Tea Cup Vases {so dainty and so romantic, plus I do love mini centerpieces}
from My Vintage Party

3. Mini Food {any food on a small scale is just so eye catching, especially sliders}
from Jessica Monnich Photography

4. Hankie Garlands {maybe they're finds from a flea market or from your family's collection, but this is a great way to bring a fun splash of color to your event}
from 100 Layer Cake

5. Confetti {I love it in any form - whether on food or used in decor}
from Sweetapolita

6. Sparkly Glittered Shoes {add a bit of bling under your dress}
from Kristen Weaver Photography

7. Mini Bundt Cakes {mini treats for dessert instead of a large cake - such a fun idea}
from Always with Butter

8. Invitations with Hand-Drawn Illustrations {Invitations with a personal touch from the artist mean so for both the couple and the guests receiving them. This one happens to be the latest addition to my etsy shop}
from Wedding Girl

9. Signature Drink {can be either a cocktail or mock-tail}
from Valley and Co Lifestyle

10. Chalkboard Menus {such a great idea and then you have a great decor piece for your new home}
from Studio Julie Photography

11. Purple Weddings {still in love with any purple wedding I see}
from The Brides Cafe

12. Edible Favors {guests love going home with sweet treats, my current love is mini pies}
from Marisa Chee Photography

13. Brooches on Dress Sashes {I love dress sashes and when you add a bit of bling, the wow factor goes way up}
from Wed Plan
