Wedding Trends for 2011

Pretty and Simple
Table arrangements that are small and simple with less quantity are attracting this years brides. Tables should be long and elegant instead of round, because long tables emphasis the decorations and are reminiscent of other times, when they were part of family celebrations. Must have trends for your upcoming wedding are country flowers,recycle small glass recipients, create an Eco-friendly and rustic ambiance for the wedding, which all can be combined to create a elegant and stylish wedding. Outdoor Weddings
This type of venue is a huge trend for 2011 because an outdoor celebration is fun and relaxing. If it is a possibility for you, than do it! But do not forget to have a plan B, just in case mother nature decides to bless your big day with a chance of rain. Back to the Past
Vintage is in! Incorporating modern elements that have a historical past is a new and fabulous trend. Some small ways to incorporate vintage in your wedding is by having historical brand party favors, recycling you mothers wedding dress, incorporate your family wedding photos into your decor or let it be your wedding theme.
Details are more important than ever! Every detail is eye catching and goes unseen. If you don't have time for a details, there is nothing like hiring a wedding planner to transform your wedding dreams into reality. The wedding table should be a focal point, the place cards should be personalized, your color palette should be thought out, your wedding should have a special touch! Old school photography
Photographers are creating wedding albums that are reminiscent of the seventies. A relaxed setting with textiles as a background is a big trend. This is very simple and everyone can enjoy taking snapshots.
Simple and quality menus
Simple and pretty seems to be the trend for 2011, so why not the menu! Serving your food and drinks in a unique style is the way to go. A touch of your creativity and some modern dishware is a trend that we are looking forward to. Rustic cakes
Wedding cakes will continue to be the beautiful focal point in your decor. But this year we are going rustic-chic, fondant is being replaced with butter cream, sugar flowers are being substituted for real flowers and sugar glazed fruit is always a beautiful detail.
