JKM Ribbon Discusses Bridal Trend Forecast for 2013

BERLIN, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 02/25/13 -- Each year, brides-to-be and event planners make extensive arrangements to design top-notch weddings that match the personality of the newlyweds and the trends of the season. A recent article from Raleigh Metro Magazine highlights some of the trends that many in the wedding planning industry are expecting for the 2013 bridal season. It details a trend forecast that many suspect will include a return to glamour, highly-detailed styles, affordability and uniqueness. As a company that specializes in the bridal craft market, JKM Ribbon responds to these predictions by encouraging consumers to remember how powerful the simple impact of ribbons and trims are in modern weddings -- regardless of what approach a bride takes when designing her special event.

In the article, Katie Dunn, owner and lead planner at La Fete Event Creation, Planning & Management, reveals, "I think rustic and vintage weddings will still be in style, but with a more glamorous twist: etched crystal, crystal chandeliers, lush centerpieces, beautiful lace and ruffles. I also think we will continue to see brides making the extra effort to make their wedding one-of-a-kind with personal touches..." While special touches can range from food to function, the staff at JKM Ribbon believes that the personalized element of luxury can easily be attained through the many applications of ribbon and trims. For example, the company explains that these beautiful products can add a whole new layer of depth to floral arrangements, centerpieces, bridal accessories and décor.

Another prediction that the article makes focuses on the popular consumer trend of cost-efficiency. As brides and grooms strive to cut corners to save money, while at the same time deliver an elegant wedding, many wedding planners are suggesting an elimination of party favors -- a factor that most guests will not remember. However, visual elements will remain an important expense, as these finer details will most likely be captured in professional photographs to remember for years to follow. As such, JKM Ribbon strives to provide affordable ribbons and trims to bridal customers by offering direct savings through wholesale prices.

While many wedding planners and brides are expected to focus on the finer details, many question what kinds of styles will appear through those specific elements. According to the article, deep, feminine colors such as purple and pink will prove popular among the décor components that brides integrate into their design plans.

In response to this anticipated color trend, JKM Ribbon suggests in a recent press statement, "Those that need that perfect purple or pink ribbon to be in touch with this year's trendy bridal colors will find that JKM Ribbon & Trims features an extensive color palette. Our silky Swiss Double Face Satin and many other bridal satins are flexible and elegant to fit the varying styles of modern brides. In addition, we carry a full line of tartan plaids and lace trim for rustic weddings -- another popular trend expected in 2013. Whatever style a bride is pursuing, JKM Ribbon can print names and dates on satin ribbons for that personal touch, as well as provide wide satin or fabric tulle perfect for decorating tables."


JKM Ribbon has supplied ribbons and trims to the craft, bridal, floral, packaging, design, home sewing and specialty markets for more than 15 years. Among its product selection, the company provides a diverse range of high quality ribbons and trims. JKM Ribbon offers wholesale prices at low minimum order ($25) in order to make these quality products affordable for anyone who is planning to pursue a crafting hobby, start a business, or order elegant touches for their next party or celebration.
