Spring/Summer 2011 Wedding Trends

Print this Learning Center Idea
The 2011 wedding trends are full of flirtatious, feminine energy. Dresses feature layers of tulle over other fabrics, creating a softer look and toning down the luster of glossy materials such as satin and silk. Dresses with one-shoulder necklines and shorter lengths are hot, especially when combined with wrapped styles and origami details. Fabrics with subdued, pale colors such as icy blue, grey, lilac and pale yellow create a unique look that moves away from the traditional white and ivory styles. Flower motifs and rose embellishments are all the rage, ranging from petal accents to large, flowered skirts.
As with many areas of fashion, eco-friendly wedding dresses are increasing in popularity. Pick up a used wedding dress from a thrift store or an online source such as Craigslist.com, and add your own unique touch. Turn a strapless dress into a one-shouldered style in a few simple steps. Add a layer of tulle, or embellish your dress with your favorite beads, rhinestones or charms for a more personalized look. This will help you not only save money and be green, but you will end up with a more unique design for your special day!

Sparkle and shine are all the rage this year. Whether they are small crystal embellishments in your dress or a bangle with crystal AB rhinestones, brilliant accents will give your bridal attire an elegant, glimmering look. A bold bracelet and matching earrings are the perfect choice for dresses with a one-shoulder neckline. If you choose a colored fabric, match your dress color and jewelry colors to create a beautifully cohesive style. If you opt for the more traditional white or ivory dress, employ bright jewelry components for stunning accents.
