Wedding Trends 2011

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

The start of 2011 is less than 3 weeks away and new year wedding trends are astir! Here are a few ideas to spice up traditional ways.

Mix it Up
Throw in varied shapes and sizes of tables, different mis-match chairs to create a stylish, vintage feel. Ditch the assigned seating and placecards, creating more freedom to move around, like a lounge atmosphere.

Brunch Reception
Combination of breakfast and lunch items are much less expensive than dinner meals. Bring on the mini french toast, ambrosia salad and mimosas!

Gift of Generosity
You don't need another cheese grater; ask guests to make a donation in your name to your favorite charity.

Weekend Extravaganza
Rent a house or mansion so you can truly take your time to celebrate with your guests and not feel so rushed.

Change the Timeline
The key is to keep things unpredictable; the first dance doesn't have to be after dinner. Create your own sequence of events!

There's nothing more special than handmade elements weaved into the details of your wedding. How about a DIY wedding quilt? Ask friends and family to send scraps of meaningful fabric and perhaps include it in your wedding ceremony to symbolize unity.

Nostalgic Romance
Vintage, simple, elegant. Recycle mom's old wedding gown or incorporate your grandparent's photos into the decor.

Wedding Dresses With Pockets
A trend i'm NOT particularly a fan of! Pictured below is a ball gown by Priscilla of Boston, "Lindsey" of the Vineyard Collection. Gorgeous bodice but the pockets kill it for me.

What do you think?

Got to agree with you on the pockets issue. I hope it doesn't catch on.
