Now that we know what's hot for 2011 weddings
, let's talk about those trends from the past that brides, grooms and wedding vendors
are ready to say sayonara to!
What's Out for 2011 Weddings- Top 10
1. Mustache on a Stick
- the move toward more elegant, sophisticated weddings means 2011 couples will leave the shtick behind, including the once-popular mustache on a stick.
- classic wedding cakes
are back, cupcakes are on their way out.
3. Over-the-Top Dessert Bars
- remember, it's back to basics in 2011. And dramatic dessert bars are most certainly not a basic!
4. Candy Bars
- another once-popular wedding reception
treat, candy bars are taking a back seat to traditional wedding cake tables. So wedding guests
with a serious sweet tooth- plan on bringing your own stash in 2011!
5. Wedding Dresses with Pickup Skirts
- while big, dramatic ball gowns
are in for 2011 brides, pick-up skirts are not. The antiquated reputation often associated with pickups sustains in 2011.
6. Glamourizing Bridezilla
- we can all take a big sigh of relief. In 2011, demanding bridezillas will no longer be glamourized.
7. Rustic Wedding Style
- rustic chic weddings
were huge for 2010, but in this ever-changing wedding world, rustic is out for 2011.
- wedding dresses
with deep, plunging necklines that are more trashy than classy are definitely out for 2011.
9. Crazy Wedding Reception Dances
- crazy wedding reception dances and sophisticated wedding style do not mesh... so 2011 couples will ditch the crazy dances and go more traditional.
10. Matchy Matchy
- 2011 is the year to mix, match, and be merry (er...
married). So say goodbye to head-to-toe monochromatic bridesmaid style and perfectly coordinating bridal parties.
