Looking at 2012 wedding trends. One of the big things for 2012 will be lace! Lace can be incorporated into sleeves, whether they are long sleeves, cap sleeves or sleeveless but covering your chest up to your neck. Your dress itself can be fully covered in lace or only parts of it. You can use lace in many areas of the wedding, your table linens, decorations and many of those little touches.
Lace can help give your wedding a vintage look and a classic elegance. Lace can also be incorporated into your cake topper! If you have a bride and groom topper, the bride can have her dress look like your dress, lace included. You can use lace as a base for your topper, allowing you to incorporate the lace and have a topper of your choice. Or your cake itself can have all the lace on it :)
If lace is a major part of your wedding don't forget to add lace to your guest favors, center pieces, guest book, dessert table and where ever you want to add your touch. Don't forget you're supposed to have fun with your wedding planning!
