More Wedding Trends for 2008 & 2009 Reception Trends

Trends come and go in bridal. Here's some of the latest wedding
trends we've compiled from
interviewing our savy brides.

Edible fruit centerpieces: Very organic, very fresh,
very expensive, not for the budget bride. There
are labor intensive and must be done the day
of the wedding, so its a bit difficult for the
do it yourselfer. They literally make my
mouth water and are a feast for the eyes.
Best part, they match most decors. Downside:
they'll get eaten and you won't have centerpieces
for the entire reception.

Fruits and flowers in bouquets and centerpieces

Fruits are put in the bases of clear vases or used in
the actual floral arrangement.

Tall, thin unique wedding cakes done in marzipan
without all the fluff and done in bright, unique colors.

The first dance
A lot of couples are borrowing from Dancing With
The Stars and learning ballroom dance for their first
dance at the reception.
Others are coreographing their first dance to mimic a
music video or their favorite song to surprise their guests.
One you've seen on YouTube is the wedding party and family
Michael Jackson's Thriller dance at the reception.
I loved it! What a fun family!

The green reception

Many aware couples are incorporating eco
friendly aspects into their wedding receptions
such as wildflower favors or donating to
the Sierra club in lieu of a favor.

Planting these wildflower favor hearts will actually
grow wildflowers!
