2011 Wedding Trends to Watch

Dec 14, 2010

Short Wedding DressAt Dimitra Designs, we’re always mindful of the latest trends in weddings and for 2011, we have a couple of predictions on what will become the hot new thing for brides. If you’re planning on getting married next year and want to know what you can do to stay in line with what’s in vogue, then be sure to check out some of our 2011 wedding trends to watch:

Local Chic: Because of the high costs of having a wedding, more and more couples will instead choose to keep things local and lovely, sourcing local ingredients for catering, local vendors for services, and of course, a local locale to keep travel costs low. Also expect to see much more DIY in the wedding planning process.

Bridal Headpieces: Forget the veil – 2011 is all about fascinators! Brides will skip the veil in favor of heirloom or modern fascinators, smaller birdcage veils, vintage hats, or even just some cool floral or rhinestone hairpieces.

Over The Top Cakes:
The classic three tier wedding cake is about to get an upgrade. Watch in 2011 to see more interesting and unique wedding cakes that use fondant as the main decorative element, as inspired by hit cake making TV shows.

Informal Attire: Instead of getting married in a tux, expect more grooms to opt for a sharply tailored suit instead. Brides will also forgo the huge gowns in favor of something sleeker and lighter, like a chiffon sheath or a playful tea length wedding gown in tulle. As for bridesmaids, it’s all about silk, linen, cotton, and tweed dresses that can be worn again and again.

Colorful Wedding Gowns: Wedding dresses are about to get colorful, and we’re not just talking about embroidery or sashes. Wedding gowns in pastels, ballerina pinks, pale blues, buttery yellows, platinum, and even springy greens will make a splash as more brides look to be a vision in a color other than white.
