Common trends among wedding dress designers were to make dresses light and flowy. Ball gowns and sheaths have replaced the mermaid styles and A-Line looks we’ve become accustomed to. Fabrics that are used on many of the Fall 2010 dresses include organza, tulle, net, satin, silk, chiffon, and lace. Many dresses are pleated, feature a sweep train, and the empire waist style is still popular. Ruffles are seen on the skirts or patterns on the skirts which are usually made of the tulle, organza etc. Since ball gowns are popular there is an accent at the waist. Some with a belt like look and others with the beaded ends of the bodice. Wearing any of these dresses will make you feel like a princess with the flirty and light fabric. This fabric will make an easy transition from the ceremony to the reception as well.
The big trend that designers are taking this fall is to avoid strapless dresses. They are using many different neck lines to accentuate the different bodies and faces of your bridesmaids. Some of the necklines that you will find are bateau, which some refer to as the boat neckline, halter, one shoulder, heart, and V-neck.
Color is something that is important when it comes to bridesmaid dresses and this fall there are many vivid fall colors and color combination that will fit with many bridal styles. Popular colors include rich violet purple, dark salmon, black, charcoal,teal, wine, fiery orange,brown, and various shades of blue. Two toned dresses are also popular generally they are featuring a white or ivory top and a color for the skirt.
The Birdcage veil is popular. Stars have been wearing it on the red carpet and this ofter transfers to wedding style. The Birdcage veil is a jeweled clip or a feathered headpiece that has netting attached to it that only covers the face. It is less hassle for the groom to deal with then the traditional veil and it is a bit glamorous.
Accessory favorites don’t change all that often. The favorites are still pearls, rhinestones, and crystals. Let’s not forget though that there are gems like sapphire and ruby that would go beautifully with your fall wedding.
Wedding hair has no set trends or specific styles because it’s the most personal part of a woman’s individual style. Some larger trends though are for women with longer hair to wear it in waves, slightly pulled back, or to use a jeweled hair accessory is always a success. The use of tiaras is still popular in 2010.

Popular colors that have been identified as good choices for 2010 include deep red colors such as burgundy and wine, teal, violet colors such as plum and deep purple, mocha colors which include various shades of brown, and sage as an accent color.
Flowers are generally hand-tied and gathered together with a satin ribbon or a satin wrap. Some include beads, jewels, and other unique accents to make their boquet stand out. Not all bouquets are real many are fake so that the bride can design it exactly as she wishes. The most popular flowers are roses, lilies, peonies, hydrangeas, tulips, and orchids. For fall make sure the flowers are in vivid colors that coordinate with your color scheme.
The traditional guest book is still used but also some now use a picture that is matted without glass in the frame and ask guests to sign it so that it can be framed as a constant reminder of all the love from that day.
Another popular thing to do is to leave a decorated box at the ceremony entrance and in the reception asking for wedding advice or memories of the couple so that the couple can treasure this gift and use the advice in their own marriage.
A popular trend is to have a candy bar. That is to say have a table filled with bowls of candy that guests can fill up small bags and take home as a favor. Favors are also being home made using the bride’s creativity. Favors are also serving double duty as the place-card holder and a take home favor.
The cake toppers are found to be monogrammed letters rather than bride and groom figurines. Buttercream icing is the most popular icing because of it’s smooth appearance and it can have decorations like dots, hearts, etc on it.
Couples are often fond of candid shots as they make the most memorable photos. Many are also requesting black and white photos.
Bride and groom walk down separate isles to meet each other at the alter. Another approach is that the groom escorts his mom down the isle. The bride can be escorted by mom and dad, dad and step dad, grandparents or anyone that is special to them. Many couples are writing their own vows.
It’s your day, so make it special and memorable for you.
