Top 5 Wedding Trends for 2009

Top 5 Wedding Trends for 2009

Bridesmaids Dresses - Forget uniformity and tradition when it comes to bridesmaids dresses. Definitely at the top of the list for the top 5 wedding trends of 2009  was to assign a color and allow each of your bridesmaids to buy a dress in that color. You may want to specify that your bridesmaids all have long dresses or that they choose a certain type of fabric, etc. Allowing them the freedom to choose something they actually like and might wear again is something that each of them will appreciate!

Small but Luxurious Weddings - Considering how terrible the economy is, many people have had to cut back on lavish spending. One way to have the wedding of your dreams at a low price is to cut back on your guest list. People love going to intimate weddings anyway! When your guests are surrounded by hundreds of strangers, it can be uncomfortable for them. Consider putting a cap on yours and your fiances list as well as your immediate family's list. Your soon to be father-in-law might be the type to invite everyone he has ever met. If he has decided to invite the mailman, his favorite teller from the bank, and his veterinarian...maybe its time to lay down the law. Don't feel bad about capping the amount of guest per person, it will help tremendously.

Honeymoon Registries - Do you want some more pots and pans from Bed Bath & Beyond or would you like to go on the most amazing vacation ever? Honeymoon registry sites are popping up left and right and some sites are better than others. Read the fine print and find out what the site's fees are.

Honeymoon registries are also great for your guests! They don't have to go out to a store and wait in a long line on the weekend. They can shop from their very own homes quickly and easily and put money towards your flight, hotel, or even just a nice dinner.

Comfort is Key - Wedding dresses can be big and uncomfortable and rather than dying to get out of them throughout the ceremony and reception, many brides in 2009 changed into a more comfortable dress at the end of the ceremony. If you feel like you are going to burst at the seams over the course of the entire wedding, you won't be able to enjoy yourself as much.

Non-traditional Engagement Rings - Although the traditional Tiffany setting is classic, I personally am sick of seeing them. When I say non-traditional, I don't mean that they are crazy or outlandish, just unique.

This list of the top 5 wedding trends for 2009 shows that times are definitely changing and it seems that it's for the better! Comfort and not adhering so strictly to tradition are taking precedence.
