Wedding Trends | The jewels of 2012

January 17

Part of being a stylist, is keeping up with current wedding trends.

With each new season, my gears start turning from aaaallll the shiny new things, that catch my magpie eye! And it is my great pleasure to present 2012’s fabulous new jewels, today.

There’s lots of goodness to reveal, but before we dive in, I want to remind you of one thing….

Love never goes out of style.

And here at KME, I personally aspire to transcend current trends and present genuine affairs.

Don’t get me wrong, I love new and sparkly just as much as the next guy, but lets not forget the heart of your story… you and him... and that which makes YOU smile.

Enough with the lecture.. bring on the goodies!

It’s called the extra mile, folks.
