Keeping these trends in mind, we have compiled some trendy ideas for you.

Bouquets

Big bouquet trend holding strong since Miranda Lambert’s May 2011 wedding to Blake Shelton is the jeweled or brooch bouquet.They look sparkly and can add a more meaningful touch. You can go for custom made jeweled bouquets or choose your own jewelry and use it in your bouquet. There are many companies that work exclusively with such things. Super trendy right now is the brooch bouquet. You can choose from gem – laden hat pins and cocktail rings to strands of pearls and waterfall earrings.

Sleeves

Perhaps thanks to the popularity of shows like Downton Abbey or the media hoopla surround the Royal Wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William, brides are choosing to walk the aisle in vintage style gowns featuring long sleeves. The best example of this would be the creation credited to English designer, Sarah Burton, creative director of the luxury fashion house Alexander McQueen. Generally lace is preferred not just for the sleeves but for the entire gown.

Invitations

According to the latest trend, couples choose eco–friendly invitations. Green is the latest invitation color. Most popular is the use of recycled paper and natural ink. Hyper-green couples are choosing to forgo the paper invite all together and choosing sites like Paperless Post for their invites.

Food

Ahh, foodies rejoice. Enter the emergence of the food truck gourmet to the wedding scene. From ethnic to plain pizzas and burgers, truck gourmets will give a unique touch to your wedding. These can be more fun at a casual wedding. If you are planning a formal wedding, don’t opt for truck gourmet as a sole meal option- but perhaps as a novelty or appetizer.

Venue

Tents remain a huge trend. So much so that venues known for their banquet rooms and halls are erecting seasonal tents on their properties to accommodate the requests. Adding natural property elements like an Apple orchard or farm and you have the most memorable scenery. It goes without saying, for a memorable wedding location, choose the beautiful Hudson Valley. Indian Ridge offers the perfect setting for a picturesque Hudson Valley Farm Wedding.
