2010 Wedding Trends

The style of a wedding is very much suited to the couple, but there are always trends that come and go in the wedding industry. Take a look at what’s in style for the 2010 wedding season.

1. Classic

Although this trend has been in for a few years now, it shows no sign of stopping. Lace gowns, antique hair slides or brooches, bird-cage veils, vintage crockery – all are becoming more popular for adding a classic touch to weddings. In addition vintage, shorter dresses are also becoming more popular.

2. Color

No longer is the bride limited to white, cream and ivory. Splashes of color really liven up a wedding, whether they are bright bridesmaid dresses, a colorful underskirt in a bride’s dress, a shocking tie or even a pair of blue shoes for luck.

3. Mini bites

Gone are the days of the multi-tier cake. Now, couples are opting for a simple two-layer cake which can be served as dessert. Also very popular is the option of one small top cake with layers of individual cupcakes which can also double up as favors for the guests.

4. Fun

Couples looking to create a less formal atmosphere at their wedding are incorporating more and more fun factors into the day to create a party atmosphere.

5. Custom-Made Features

There are many inexpensive, fun and creative options to really personalize your wedding.

Invitation materials and tools are available from craft stores, so you can make them as formal, or as informal, as you like. Whether you want a fold-out invitation with directions to the venue, RSVP and guest list included or a simple postcard with a photo of you and your partner, it’s up to you.
