Wedding Trends for 2009

As we look forward to the new year, there are many happy brides just beginning their planning process. I have recieved lots of questions concerning trends for the new year. Here is my list of some of the trends for 2009:
• Smaller weddings with fewer guests
• Destination weddings or destination type weddings closer to home
• Accent colors on dresses and cakes with the most popular being greens and blues
• Increased reliance on family and friends to help plan, pay, and provide some of the services
• Increased use of green and echo friendly products and services
• Simplified decorations, centerpieces and wedding invitations
• Increased use of online RSVP’s vs. traditional mail-in RSVPs
• Off-peak weddings; Mornings, Afternoons, Fridays, Sundays, October becomes the new June
• Buffet meals, Hors d’oeuvre, and cocktail receptions
• Cheesecakes, cupcakes and miniature cakes
• All-inclusive packages
I especially love the idea of the off- peak weddings. Your pricing can be drastically reduced when going off-peak.
