Top Wedding Dress Trends 2012, Whatcom County draws the best of urban and natural wedding influences and marries them to uniquely Northwestern style. With the memory of the sumptuous royal nuptials behind us, some trends have taken hold while others fade into the closet with robin’s egg blue tuxedos and pleated puffy sleeves.

We talked to local wedding experts Anne Rasmussen, owner of True Bliss Events; Pam Needham, owner of Alicia’s Bridal & The Formal House; Elaine Wood, owner of Belle Bridal & Formal Shoppe; Andi Vann, owner of Pure Bliss Desserts; Scarlett Graham, director of sales at the Chrysalis Inn & Spa; Kim Joyner, sales manager of the Bellwether Hotel; Clinton James of Clinton James Photography; and Aaron Nelson of Evantide Photography to find out the latest fun and fabulous trends to consider while creating a 2012 wedding.

“Overall I’m seeing a shift toward a more socially responsible, understated wedding, taking into consideration the cost in the long term. But don’t attempt a ‘do it yourself’ just to save money. This day is significant and memorable,” Rasmussen says.

“Budget is the most important thing. Keep it within reason,” Joyner says.

“Older couples with a little more money and experience are more able to focus on the things most important to them, a smaller guest list, better food, good wine and flowers. They have a good sense of their individuality. Younger people are more likely to follow the traditional playbook,” James says.

“A wedding is also a celebration of family and friends. Incorporate more people into the wedding and reception activities,” Rasmussen says.
