I gave a talk this evening at the Wedding Salon's Bootcamp at Dylan's Candy Bar. I mentioned a number of trends for 2011 regarding fashion and wedding style but the first thing I said was: While there are indeed trends we are seeing for 2011 weddings, the most important thing to know about wedding style is that the #1 trend year after year is planning the wedding you want and personalizing the details.
The only way to avoid the dreaded cookie-cutter wedding is to plan a wedding that reflects you, your groom and your families.
Everyone will wear a dress. Everyone will have some type of wedding ceremony. Everyone will have some type of party and most likely there will be some type of cake that the two of you will cut. So as you can see all weddings will have the same elements, but it's how you tailor these elements to reflect your style and your likes that will make your wedding unique.
