The number-one trend for 2012? Top event designers across the country say that this is the year when formal black tie is making a comeback, a phenomenon they attribute to the enormous influence of the royal wedding. "The glamorous look is here to stay," says Tara Guérard, a celebrity planner based in Charleston, SC.
Whether the celebration is full-on formal or takes a more homespun, rustic route (still going strong, say the pros), color schemes have gone back to the classics. "Pink will be making a comeback," says Tara. "You'll see pale pinks in combination with neutrals such as champagnes and creams." Chicago's Debi Lilly, the go-to event designer for Oprah herself, agrees. "The color schemes for weddings always follow fashion. Right now it's the nudes-oyster gray, pale gold. Just what we've been seeing on the runways and in all the fashion magazines."
