Wedding Series: Decor Trends For 2013 With Berlyn Lai

Wedding decor has become a lot more interesting in the last few years thanks to sites like WedLuxe, Style Me Pretty, and Pinterest. From themed weddings to adding personal decor touches, you can be sure it will be memorable.

If you’re in need of some wedding decor ideas, Berlyn Lai from Bloved Events, fills us in on the hottest wedding decor trends of 2013!


Hot colours in 2013 – Emerald is pantone’s colour of the year, so we’ll be sure to see it come up in many weddings this year, likely paired with Gold for their elegant feel. Mint is another popular colour this year, it’s not only refreshing but also delicate, and can be mixed with other colours for a beautiful wedding palette.

Rustic Vintage is still a strong wedding trend. We can expect to see more barn weddings, lace, burlap, mason jars filled with signature cocktails as an example.


Birds/Love birds/Use of birdwire – seems to be everywhere in home decor right now and will carry over into wedding decor. Move over burlap, chicken wire is the hot new rustic wedding decor item.


Glitzy glamour of the 1920s – with the release of the Great Gatsby movie, this will bring the glitzy decade back into fashion, look out for flapper fashion, stylish headpieces and art deco patterns.

Unique backdrops and backgrounds – whether it’s for a photo booth, dessert table, your ceremony backdrop or behind the head table, the possibilities are endless. Perhaps a DIY project? i.e. beautiful yards of lace, strips of multi colored fabric, or floral garlands hung vertically.

Mix-matched centerpieces – instead of the one flower arrangement on the table, couples are considering a variety of smaller bud vases with a variety of single-stemmed flowers.

Though these may be some of the popular trends in 2013, at the end of the day, what makes a wedding special are those personal elements that come from the couple and those things they love the most. Adding those elements to a wedding will make it unique.
