It's a good thing wedding trends don't change as quickly as fashion trends, or my brides would be changing their colors/flowers/themes every other month! Although every bride is different, and it's best to forego trends/fads and just go with what you LOVE, there are some emerging trends that are worth noting:

-Steel gray or navy blue as a canvas color (instead of black or chocolate brown)

-I'm seeing more brides choose a shade of blue (either powder or navy) mixed with pink (blush or fuchsia) as their wedding colors. I LOVE this combo, as you can see from my website :)

-Whimsical whimsical whimsical! Sweet do it yourself handmade touches. Casual and cozy garden party atmosphere.

- Lots of mismatching vases- I have a bride who wants each and every arrangement to look unique. Some will be in antique silver urns, some in glass bowls, some in white ceramics, etc. The look is collected, like each item was carefully picked from an antique store.

- The return of greenery- when used tastefully, it adds a little wildness, movement and texture. I can remember just a few years ago when most brides didn't want a speck of greenery showing. The look now is more natural, as if just picked from a garden.

- Picking a theme or motif and running with it! I did a fabulous book themed wedding, a square themed wedding, and have an awesome Great Gatsby inspired wedding in '09!

- An openness to different flowers- Brides are reconsidering the often looked-down-upon flowers such as daisies, mums, babies breath, and carnations. I couldn't be more thrilled about this since I don't like to discriminate when it comes to flowers. They all have their place, and when used artistically can be drop dead gorgeous!
