1. Royal Wedding Fever 
The Royal Wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William on 4/29/2011, is forecasting “fairytale bling” with crystals and monograms to celebrate the customs and traditions of the royal family.
2. Sheer Coverage and Assymetrical 
One shoulder gowns, sheer and peekaboo necklines are allowing brides to be fashionistas with flair.
3. Texture and Layers 
Layered fabrics add texture without bulk. Vintage gowns are still in with romantic ruffles and fabrics with “easier to dance in” styles are in. Layers of tulle with an oversize skirt and strapless gowns are still in to flatter many body types.
4. Bright Colors 
Tropical and fun colors for 2011 – apple green, mauve, lilac, hot pink, slate grey, celadon, aged gold, coral, red, violet purple, mocha/chocolate/brown, navy, emerald/pine green/dark cyan, clementine orange, and yellow.
5. Embellished Belts 
Chelsea Clinton’s wedding dress with her ornate and colored belt is still making an impact for 2011.
6. Personalization First 
Focusing on the couple’s interests, passions and hobbies first to set themes revolving around them.
7. Outdoor and Natural Settings 
Many weddings are still formal, yet have a casual or natural theme. The outdoor creates a theme of comfort, and focus is more on making guests feel “at home”. Outdoor ceremonies make it easier on some guests to not have to travel once they arrive.
8. Eco-Friendly Weddings 
Couples are enviromentally sensitive in their planning with vintage dresses, recycled paper invites, and using food and florals from local producers. Reduce, reuse, recycle are on their minds.
9. Trio Terrific 
Brides are combining two and three colors instead of just one complementing color.
10. Technical Aspects 
Social networking sites saves time, money, and give guests tons of information, but the couple must also make sure they do not overstep wedding etiquette in the process.
