Mark Niemierko on bridal trends for 2013

Hallo everyone!
 
With designers showing their spring 2013 collections at Barcelona Bridal Week, New York Bridal Week and at the White Gallery, I decided to put together a blog post on bridal trends for 2013. And who better to turn for advice on the matter than the UK’s foremost wedding and event planner, Mark Niemierko?
 
With over ten years experience in the events industry, Mark’s name has become synonymous with knowledge and expertise, and with an unfailing commitment to excellence. His signature style is chic and luxurious.
 
Over to Mark for an authoritative rundown of that to expect in 2013:
 
 
Gold
 
Gold is seriously in. Last week alone we signed off 3 sets of client 
invitations - all 3 of them have gold lettering.  

We are even 
having gold cutlery at one wedding.  
Done in a subtle understated way,
gold doesn't need to be brash or ostentatious.  It can actually look
retro and chic.
 

 

 
 
 
 
 
Monochrome
 
Love or hate her, Kim Kardashian's wedding had a huge impact on wedding 
trends.  
Brides are constantly making a reference to her monochrome
wedding ceremony.  
I'm a fan of putting black and whites with
silver or greys to soften the harshness.  
So for example, silver table
linen with white flowers in black vases is a chic take on the
monochrome look.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Lace
 
Another celebrity, or Royal, influence I should say.  
From Monique
Lhullier's Catherine dress to lace trimmed veils,
 the Duchess of
Cambridge's choice of a lace wedding dress last year has heavily
influenced 2012 brides.
 
 
 
 
 
 
His and Her Desserts
 
Have 2 different desserts for your final course.  
Something fresh and
light for the ladies such as sorbets, 
to a more rich and heavy dessert for the gentlemen.
It makes for a fun talking point and I'm sure some
flirting may take place as couples share their desserts!
 
 
 
Recovery packs
 
Help your guests get over their hangover with some essential items in
their hotel rooms.
 
 
 
 
Honeymoon Wardrobe
 
We love high street favourites Topshop and Reiss for buying in bulk
for that romantic getaway: Topshop and Reiss
 
 
 
 
45 Park Lane
 
The perfect location for a gentlemanly stag that Don Draper would be
proud of: 45 Park Lane
 
 
 
 
Bite By Bite
 
Peter Callahan's book Bite By Bite, inspiring miniatures 
of your
favourite dishes from New York's favourite catering expert: Peter Callahan
