2010 Wedding Trends


Colors, themes and styles can change year to year in weddings. It used to be that wedding styles didn’t change much from year to year. It was normal for all of the bridesmaids to have matching dresses and the groomsmen all wore tuxedos. The wedding industry has changes drastically over the past couple of decades. If you are planning on getting married in 2010, I’m sure thoughts will be turning on what to wear, where to get married and many more details that will follow to make your day perfect. Here is a quick look at fashion trends that are emerging this year.

Wedding Dress- Long flowing romantic style dresses are really starting to emerge. Soft fabrics, even with a floral design are very popular. You can even compliment the dress with a sash. Lace is also becoming more and more common among brides. Strapless wedding dress continues to be the most popular. Long trains are out, but long veils are back in this season.

Colors- Purple is the new blue. Deep plum seems to be the new seasonal favorite for fall of 2010. Brides are starting to purchase lavender accents for their upcoming spring and summer collection and are expected to remain the same thought 2011. There has also been an increase of black and white weddings on the rise. Black is very formal and elegant. If you choose to go with black and white, think about accenting another color such as tiffany blue or fuchsia. This will really make your colors pop!

Reception- A more casual feel to your wedding is becoming more popular. Use centerpieces of matching colors, and then have different heights of arrangements (ex: vases). More and more brides are using natural materials such as lemons, apples, leaves, etc. Lanterns and flowering veins are as popular as ever. Also, arrangements of ostrich feather centerpieces are becoming more popular.

Wedding Cakes- The past couple of years, elaborate dessert tables and candy bars have been very popular. The more traditional wedding cake is making a comeback. White classic wedding cakes seem to be what is becoming more and more popular. A good suggestion is to order a single round, three tier cake with buttercream icing and white fondant. Really make it stand out by adding bold flowers to decorate the cake with, with something decorative (antique look) to add to the top of the cake. You can also go with a simple look and have it clear at the top of the cake.

Photo Booths- This has been very popular over the past couple of years. I don’t see this trend going away anytime soon. You can add a little more “spice” to your photo booth by personalizing it more. Add props such as an old rustic couch. This makes guest feel more comfortable and makes for great pictures. Also, have an assortment of dress up items such as goofy glasses, mustaches, hats, and feather boas.

Remember, this is a once in a lifetime event. So no matter what is “in style” just follow your heart and stay true to who you are. Have a blast planning your special day!
