Earring trends for 2013

Stud earrings made with quality materials are always in. At school, in college, in the office, on the go, and even at the gym, they are not only practical, but also charmingly beautiful. Just as last year, the trend could be expected to continue throughout the year. Key- always make sure they are made of quality materials

Statement Earrings
Statement jewellery has taken the fashion industry by storm. Statement earrings has become every girls latest obsession. They never fail to make a statement even if you wear them with plain jeans and a tshirt. They come in all shapes, sizes and colours. They just add all that jazz to any outfit, glam up any look in no time, and you don’t need to spend a fortune to get your hands on such a piece.

Multiple Piercings  
Multiple piercings were huge during 90's and they are making a grand comeback this year. Combinations of two or three piercings and one or more piercing in the upper ear are the most common. We see men sporting multiple piercings too, for men, earrings in just one year is no longer a trend.

Low Key Drop Earrings
Small, delicate and to the point, the low-key drop earring complements even the heaviest outfits without overpowering it. Try wearing them with a heavily embellished dress, a saree or even at your own wedding to add class and elegance to the entire look.

The Ear Cuff
Ear cuffs too are making a comeback just like the multiple piercings. The style was big back in the late 90's. Ear cuffs too can be considered as statement earrings, they are often big in size and it's impossible not to notice them. I can guarantee you're going to want one as much as I do.

No earrings
Trends don't mean a thing to some girls, they prefer not wearing earrings at all. We see celebs walking the red carpet and everyday working girls keeping it simple by not wearing earrings. This definitely makes it a trend for the year 2013.

When things were perfect...

Words cannot describe how beautiful my wedding turned out to be. The sweet little DIY details, the colours, the butterflies and flowers are all the ingredients of a perfect wedding! 

As soon as we decided to have our wedding I started buying coloured papers, pens, ribbons, buttons and even fabric even though I didn't have the slightest idea of what I was going to do with those. I started making paper pom poms (hundreds of them!) with every colour possible. Without even discussing what our theme colour will be we both settled for multicolored decor because both of us love colours. 

When we handed over invitations to some of our invitees they simply went "wow!" and most of them told us that it was one of a kind! Isuru (my husband) was thrilled, he just sat there in front of his computer and designed it in 20 minutes without any help from anyone.

Our wedding was just a casual reception with close friends and family, most of the decorations were done outside with the help of a bunch of adorable friends who helped us throughout the wedding. This is something we had on top of the lane leading to Isuru's house so that people can find the place easily. One of my friends made this sign board using felt balls and permanent markers. Isn't it cute?

There were some gas balloons attached to this board, unfortunately no one has photographed them. 

Dainty paper flowers

My friend Anna made some Butterflies using  a cellophane foam and pens she got from Austria.  They added colour and elegance to the beautiful morning!

Felt ball curtains

Felt ball and fabric backdrop Anna made for us. We used this to take the group pictures.

I made these boards day before the wedding. They became one of the highlights of our wedding decor. 

Picture props- I made a lot of fun props, people always knew we were crazy... This just proved how crazy we can get. 

Now we look back at the images of everything from incredibly crazy photo shoot, tiniest DIY details, the decor and the remarkably enjoyable and peaceful reception with friends and family, we just can't imagine how we did it all with the lowest cost anyone could ever imagine and just how marvelous it was…with a little (okay a whole lot of) help from our friends (and family).

Thanks a lot for reading...
Much Love
