It’s hard to believe that it is already October and 2012 is coming to an end. The new year is quickly approaching and everyone’s buzzing about the upcoming trends and styles for 2013.

As a bride, choosing your wedding colors can be a stressful task. After all, not everyone can simply wear white like you! It is often helpful to utilize the colors that will be trending in the near future as a starting point for your entire wedding design, and build your tone, mood and look from there. 2013 wedding color trends have arrived and we’re happy to share them with you!

Greens

Greens of all shades are dominating the fashion trends for 2013! Grayed jade, a subtle green with a gray undertone, can give the illusion of natural beauty and elegance to your wedding. Peppermint green is another shade of green that is topping the charts. Combine it with a touch of gold glitter and some soft pinks to create a beautiful palette for your wedding! (Designer’s Hint: While green may look great on your bridal party and bouquets, it’s not an ideal color for lighting. Make sure you consult your wedding planner or design magazines about great lighting and complementary colors for greens.)
Poppy Red
Poppy red is a seductive, sensual and celebratory shade that brings a nice pop of color to your wedding. It creates a feisty atmosphere that is sure to leave a lasting impression on your guests! Combine this rich shade with peppermint green and blush for a dynamic color palette combination!

Lemon Zest
Let’s be honest, yellow just makes people happy. Lemon zest is cheerful, refreshing and perfect for a springtime wedding. It’s the color of sunshine and is sure to make you shine on your big day!
