Predictions for wedding trends 2013 and beyond!
The use of gold will be even more prevalent. All of us baby boomers remember the day (not too long ago) when we would not be caught dead wearing a piece of white gold or even worse, silver jewelry!

We are in the very early stages of the end of the white gold cycle and the beginning of the yellow gold trend.
The stationery industry is known as a “trend incubator”. In fact, many non-paper people attend the National Stationery Show in New York, just to spot new trends emanating from the industry. As the rhinestone buckle and accessory supplier to some of the better-known couture invitation companies, I can tell you from first-hand experience that their designers are requesting yellow gold rhinestone buckles and brooch designs for inclusion in their books. Demand for yellow gold is on the rise! Just in the last few months, I have seen a definite up-tick in brides contacting me for yellow gold embellishments. The feedback I am getting is that gold embellishments are very hard to find.
Flowerless weddings are in! We all have witnessed the explosion of the Brooch Bouquets in the last three years. They truly are a long lasting and beautiful alternative to the traditional floral bouquet.
