Top New Wedding Trends For 2009

A wedding is the most important day in the life of every individual. All of us would want to make this day even more special by organizing one of the most beautiful weddings of all times. If you too want your D day to be an affair to remember then here are the top new wedding trends for 2009 that will help you have a rocking event that's in perfect sync with the present times.

Head to the outdoors
Gone are the days when weddings were confined to the four walls of a ball room. Outdoor weddings are back with a bang. You could head to a farm or a vineyard. Your backyard could also work as a great wedding venue. Go for an absolutely rustic and fresh venue décor to add finesse to your outdoor wedding.

Add glitter with jewel tones
The classic white has finally bid adieu. Pastel and muted color shades are again a thing of the times gone by. Doing up the wedding venue in rich and classy jewel tones is the way to go this season. Go for rich gem colors such as bright red, emerald green, sapphire blue and plum. Bronzes and coppers also make for a great style statement.

Simple is out, pattern is in
Those single colored table cloths and dresses for the bridesmaids are an absolute no-no. This wedding season is all about vibrant and playful patterns. Whether you are like polka dots or you are a huge fan of floral prints, it is time to flaunt these patterns at the wedding venue. Using bright patterns will help you jazz up your wedding without going over the top.

Back to the 80s
The 80s trend of ball gowns is back with a bang. A ball gown is a great way to mark the prominence of the bride on the D day. And you don't really need a ball room wedding to flaunt a ball gown. Go in for any crisp fabric with layers of airy tulle.

Cake it up in dual layers
The tall multi-tiered wedding cakes have given way to simple but beautiful two tiered wedding cakes . Instead of cup cakes and desserts bars, you could have several small cakes on the dessert table. You could use vintage cake toppers to adorn these wedding cakes. Place them on the dessert table along with cookies, pies and more.

Light it up
Lighting at weddings is no longer meant to just bring the entire venue in view. These days, lighting makes for an integral part of venue décor. Go in for creative lighting such as trees, leaves, colorful amps, stars and the like.

Incorporate these wedding trends in your wedding and you are sure to make your wedding a sure shot hit in 2009.
