WEDDING TRENDS – SPRING 2012

There is no question that one of the most useful and popular trends this season is the use of mason jars. They were invented in the mid 1800’s by a fellow Philadelphian (woohoo!), and have been a household staple nationwide since then. The great thing about them is that they are so functional and seriously make anything and everything look better. Here at the studio, they are literally everywhere you look; we adore them! We use them to decorate. We use them on the desk to hold pens. We also use them a lot in our retail displays. Yep, we are obsessed.┬áMason jars can be used for so many things around the house, but have lately been a HUGE trend in the wedding scene. Last September we photographed a wedding that incorporated a ton of Mason Jars and we thought it added such a cozy and charming feel to the entire day. Lately it seems that every bridal website, blog, and magazine I come across has mason jars in it. These little guys are undoubtably the superstars of any on-trend DIY wedding; they are extremely affordable and can be made into so many great things!
