BTW, have pick up dresses died out yet? Wink These trends might still be around in 2010!

I agree with your list! I’m also seeing more and more videos pop up with couples doing crazy dances down the aisle or at the reception. The gal I’m going to for my dress alterations told me yesterday that she’s never seen so many brides doing colored shoes until this year too.

I second the hair flowers.  Also, my beloved Melissa Sweet Lia.  I love the dress so much but everyone and their sister has worn it.

I agree with everything that’s been said so far, but I’ll add a few more:

– Reiterating hair flowers, and adding, going sans veil (what I’m doing)
– Shorter wedding dresses (I’m doing tea-length after seeing it in so many weddings and must having it!)
– Buffets other than candy: like whole dessert tables, popcorn/cookie bars.
– All different BM dresses (like Mrs. Powder Puff!)

I think the big “overall wedding” trend as far as style of wedding in 2009 was the “backyard country” wedding with those apothecary beverage servers, backyard games, more casual foods, pies, etc. I LOVE those weddings everytime I see them.

i agree with ALL of those, and have to add RUSTIC THEME.  It seems like everywhere I look its rustic weddings. I love it though 🙂

Some of this is redundant, but:

– black and white color schemes and damask and fluer de lis themes

– dropping favors or doing charitable donations in lui of favors

– cake replacements (like cupcakes or a dessert buffet)

– parasols and baloons in photos

– non-floral centerpieces (not really a 2009 trend)

– ditching the matcy-matchy bridesmaid look
