trending 2011 | something blue bridal boutique, holly michigan

As we prepare to say good-bye to 2010, I look forward to what 2011 will hold for weddings . . .

{I've listed a few of the trends that will power on & pave the way through 2011!} 

~ Ruffles hang on as the go-getter in wedding gown styles, off the shoulder will be queen, and lace will still be big {as vintage remains influential in the bridal world.} Three dimensional & tulle speak volumes to the romantic visions Brides dream of! 

~ Dramatic Veils! We will soon have cathedral length veils in stock as we predict that Brides will be going for more statement pieces!  

~ It will be a defining year for photography in 2011 . . . Brides are begining to understand that the cheapest photography doesn't always mean the best photography. And of course, nothing says fresh like old-style photography! 

~ As the Friday evening wedding became popular in 2010 for being cost-effective, venues are catching on and raising prices accordingly. Look for day weddings & brunches to be the new alternative! 

~ Wedding cakes get more texture & move away from colored fondant. However, color looses no ground when it comes to shoes! Don't be afraid to dye them something funky! 

~ Local is chic. Brides are looking to stay close to home & keep it intimate. Natural settings work perfect for this style wedding - an old blue barn, garden location, or conservatory fit the bill!  

~ Eco & DIY still reign supreme, with family heirlooms making themselves a very important wedding accessory! 

I was scouring the internet to make my own inspiration board & then came across this little beauty [below] that pretty much sums up what I was going for . . . Dramatic veil, white cake with textured flowers, do-it-yourself place cards, heirloom handkerchief . . . and shows both a lacy traditional gown & a modern layered tulle gown! . . . and you know how I l.o.v.e. grey on a bridesmaid!

                           {Not sure why they threw the bed picture in there . . . but doesn't it look lovely about now!?}
                                      {inspiration board was found H E R E}

I hope yours is a happy one!
