In the current global economy the days of the Cinderella weddings are disappearing. But if you are a 2010 bride, don't fret! Amazing things come in small packages! Many brides are going to backyard or park setting venues, smaller bridal parties and handmade favors and invitations. Color is everywhere and matching is out. Brides are allowing their bridesmaids to choose their dresses based on the wedding colors. This is a win for all. Everyone's body types are different, so why not let your best friends choose a style they will look the best and be most comfortable in?
For colors, nothing is hotter than lime green which is taking the wedding scene by storm. We love the raspberry and lime combination for spring with accents of lavender and soft or bright yellow. More brides are going strapless, which is great news for beaders. Opening up a neckline provides ample opportunity for freedom in design. If you want to go traditional with a twist, mix a couple of colored crystals into your simple pearl necklace. If you are feeling bold, make a multi-strand, playful piece that is sure to steal the show! Bare arms mean more room for bracelets. Don't be afraid to go bold! Simple necklaces and earrings may make for more timeless photographs, but bracelets can be as big and bold as you like.
