More 2013 Wedding Trends

Another popular look this year is "Ritzy Ranch", a look that uses upscale and natural elements. The wedding of Lauren Bush to David Lauren, son of  designer Ralph Lauren, interpreted this look with rustic, ranch-syle decor and lots of candlelight. Reception venues, such as barns, can help create this look by using the elegant mixed with the rustic and vintage. Think chandeliers hanging in old barns, tables set with burlap runners teamed with gleaming stemware and china. Lauren and David were married in a 200-year-old barn on the family's Double RL ranch in Colorado, a naturally beautiful backdrop. In keeping with the heirloom feel Lauren arrived at the ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage. To reach the reception the couple rode down the mountain in the romantic carriage, taking in all the beauty surrounding them. As a  compliment to Lauren's stunning long-sleeved, beaded gown she accessorized with a lovely headpiece and cowboy boots. Bridesmaids wore white linen blouses, vests and vintage prairie skirts and, of course, also completed the ranch-style look with cowboy boots. What could be more perfect?

The bride wears a dress, designed by the father of the groom (also in Ralph Lauren), of antique tulle hand-embroidered with Swarovski Elements, beads, and pearls. Hair, Julien Farel for Julien Farel Group; makeup, Bobbi Brown.
