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 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.


Love or hate her, Kim Kardashian's wedding had a huge impact on wedding 
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.


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.
