  1. intimate weddings
  2. diy cost effective weddings, no matter the budget
  3. a comfy casual sophisticated look
  4. a back to the basics type wedding, think your grandparents or parents wedding with the simplicity and focus on the couple and the marriage versus the centerpieces and the designer gowns…

I have to agree with being “over” vintage.

i actually haven’t seen in vintage weddings in person. i will see my first one on feb 19th, but the bride is vintage in everyday life, so she isn’t following a trend so to speak, it’s just her, you know? lol she’s adorable.

While it’s difficult to say, I imagine that the trends will be moving away from expensive, couture toward:

Budget weddings

Small guest lists (see #1 due to economy)

Comfort food instead of fancy exotic “special occasion” food

Mismatched bridesmaid dresses and accessories

Unnecessary extras and waste cut out

Modern weddings rather than vintage

Some of us love (and did) vintage weddings!  I hope it doesn’t fade away altogether.  To each her own 🙂

Mrs DG – I don’t think they [vintage weddings] could ever disappear entirely but I do believe that it will go out of fashion and a sleeker, more modern look could be a big trend in 2010.

I think it’s funny that we “sick” of certain themes, or we think a theme is overdone, but we’re the only ones looking at weddings at this rate, while most of the public only sees 1-2 a year!

I thought to myself, “oh I guess candy buffets are on their way out….” I have never been to a wedding with a candy buffet. LOL.

I foresee smaller weddings, but done in more creative ways.

I also foresee the beach wedding becoming a smaller trend than it has been.

I think creativity and playful weddings, more childlike and fun, will start to take the place of vintage.

Also, I foresee big colors being purple, green, blue and pink, more bright tones. I think people are starting to use brighter colors as the recession continues… kind of a “cheery” thing.

Ahhh but I should add the disclaimer that I helped my fiance with his consumption spending and status thesis and other research he’s done for that… so I kind of have a clue about how some people feel about status items. I wish I’d told him to do wedding dress! Then I could really tell you how people are feeling… haha

I’m a vintage fan personally, but I see more modern inspired weddings for 2010.

I agree with ember78 all the way on the mismatched bridesmaid attire. Also mismatched Bridesmaid or Best Man and Groomsmen parties as far as even numbers go.

Also as cinemaparadiso said, I think more childlike, and perhaps whimsical themes will be more popular. I think brighter and more vivid tones will replace damask and monochromatic colors. We’ll see less “traditional” color combinations too.

I think more of the anything goes mentality will take hold.

I agree that the smaller wedings will continue to be a trend. I also think the “unwedding” weddings will be more common with less of the traditions being incorporated ie: bouquet and garter toss, all the special dances, etc. Maybe I just think this because it’s like my wedding;-] We’ll see!
