The Princess Style Wedding Dress

With the Royal Wedding being the talked about event of the year, the princess-style wedding dress has reappeared as a popular trend in 2011. The style consists of a tight body with an extravagant train. The final step to complete the look is to add bold headpieces, such as tiaras and long veils. Also, don’t be afraid to incorporate sequins and beading!!

Weddings Inspired by India

Lately, we are seeing weddings that are inspired by India’s culture. Many celebrities this year have followed suit with this trend, including Katy Perry and Nicole Richie. To create an Indian-inspired wedding, use vibrant colors, over-the-top decor (beading, embroidery, decorative accents and pillows), as well as offering spicy Indian food as menu options.

Food Trucks

With shows such as The Great Food Truck Race on the Food Network, we are seeing that food trucks are a popular trend used during cocktail hours and wedding after-parties to provide guests with amazing dishes that chefs are able to make within a small vicinity. An added plus is nowadays you can find almost any type of food item offered from a food truck, ranging from tacos to waffles!! Food trucks are a great way to change up the typical buffet style cocktail hour!

Video Photo Booths

Reality television has taken over the networks over the past couple of years, so it is no surprise that confessional-style wedding photo booths are a hot trend for the year 2011. With these booths, guests have the opportunity to say a few words to the camera for the bride and groom on their wedding day! An added plus is the bride and groom can burn the tape to DVDS to watch whenever they want or upload the reel to facebook/twitter to share with family and friends!!
