HOT 2010 Wedding Trends




Crystals

Crystals are top trend this spring and summer. From crystals on the dress to crystals dripping at the reception as centerpieces. Crystals allow for more creativity in the linens and the reception space. Crystals look great with everything. Lots of brides are opting for crystal centerpieces instead of flowers.

Linens

A bride doesn't need to go with the traditional white linens anymore. Especially since there are so many beautiful options. Black and white damasks are very popular this year. Add a pop of color such as bright pink or tiffany blue, and you have a beautiful and statement-making table design.

Dress Trends

Crystals, lace and one shoulder dresses are very popular this year, especially the one shoulder dress. Some brides are wearing the one shoulder dresses, but it's especially a popular design for bridesmaids. And the one shoulder dress looks great on all body types. Such an easy option for your bridesmaids.

Gowns with crystals, cubic zirconia, and/or pearl embellished bodices are very popular at the moment.

Wedding Cakes

More and more brides are opting for buttercream instead of fondant. Buttercream tastes better and is the best value. It's creamy, light and not too sweet. It's also easy to cut.

Fondant is made of sugar, corn syrup, gelantine and glycerine and is rolled out in sheets which is wrapped around each layer of the cake. Fondant cannot be refrigerated so you need to choose your filling with care and discuss it with your baker. Fondant does however hold up really well outdoors and in the heat, more so that buttercream.

A lot of brides are also opting for a smaller wedding cake mixed with cupcakes. Cupcakes allow for more variety in flavors and are also popular if there are a lot of children at the wedding.

Happy Planning!

I have to agree that buttercream is a much better value- it tastes so much better and is so much less expensive. I love the idea of black and white linens with a pop of hot pink!
