Although the recession is not stopping couples going ahead with their wedding plans, they are making their money go further by adding a DIY element to their ceremonies and receptions. Not only does this save money but making your own table plans, decorations or stationery can give a wonderful personal touch to your wedding.
Craft oriented hen parties are getting popular. The bride can make hanging decorations or just about anything she needs for that special day in a fun environment with her best friends. See http://makedomenders.co.uk/party/hen-parties/ for ideas.
The sweet buffet is as popular as ever. Companies specialising in supplying this demand are springing up all over the place, like http://www.sweettreatco.co.uk/.
You can match your colour scheme with sweets from every colour of the rainbow.
Pearls are still adding a touch of glamour to bouquets but for the cutting edge of wedding style, go for a no-flower bouquet.
Vintage is still hot, with pastel shades for bridesmaids, eg pink & lilac. Romantic Edwardian Victorian, Twenties elegance, or flirty 50s. Understated elegance is key with clean lines rather than fussy details. Lace, a la royal wedding is being used everywhere on dresses and even for shoes!
Or if lace is not your thing, make a statement with your wedding shoes. Bright coloured shoes with white dresses will be bang on trend.
