Happy New Year everyone! We hope you've had a good one. Lets finish this years posts off with a look back at some of 2011s top trends and a few picks for 2012.
This years must have accessory was the beaded bouquet, forget real flowers, more and more brides opted for gorgeous button and brooch creations that will last a lifetime. (Heirloom jewelled bouquet by Noaki)
Photobooths are fun for everyone. Do it yourself or call in a professional, just have a plentiful supply of silly props to hand. (24 printable photobooth prop signs from i do it yourself pic from Hot Metal Studio)
The wedding of Kate Middleton to Prince William proved not surprisingly to be your favourite this year. Thanks to Kate, and Westminster Abbey rules, lace sleeves whether they be long or short started appearing everywhere and we're sure to see more of them next year.

Vintage styling is still going strong and will be a popular choice in 2012. From homely rustic chic to old Hollywood glamour, just look to the past for inspiration. (Vintage telegram invitation from i do it yourself)
So what's looking hot for 2012. We think we'll see more bold prints and graphic shapes being used. Tangerine Tango was Pantone's colour pick for the year and we've already started to see plenty of bright oranges creeping into colour palettes. Mix it with aqua blues for a stunning colour scheme this summer. Purples and shades of blue are proving popular, while teaming grey with just about anything is a smart choice.
What's your pick for 2012?
