2008 Wedding Trends

Mar 18, 2008
One of the most prominent changes you'll see this year include curvier dresses for the women who want to show off their curves. With the move away from skinny body types in the fashion industry we're seeing more wedding trends in 2008 that promote full figures and embracing women.

Brides nowadays are increasingly inclined on showing off their shoulders and neckline. These parts of their bodies, if adorned well have much appeal. Heavy jewelry was much favored in earlier years but now, the 2008 wedding trends do not have much inclination on brides wearing too much jewelry, though the bridal dresses to be worn are mostly adorned with costume jewelries.

The most widespread colors or motifs for dress designs are chic and sleek silver along with other beautifully bold but light colors. Fabrics like classic satin and laces are much more preferred, too. For wedding themes, the wedding trends are more appreciative of warm colors like orange, violet and red.

Coming up as a wedding trend for the first time is the green wedding, which focuses on environmentally friendly weddings. Whether the couple is planning an outdoor wedding to cut down on energy or using recycled materials throughout their wedding and reception it seems that something borrowed and something blue is getting something green as well. More 2008 wedding trends include second hand fabrics, gifts that recycle, and using technology instead of paper.

Nowadays, music has become such an integral part of weddings. Latin American music is the more common choice for 2008 wedding trends. Latin American music can add a sensual flair of fun and romance to any wedding reception. This choice of music is a special favorite for couples who love to dance.

Another increasing trend concerning wedding reception music is engaging the services of cover bands. Musicians in these bands are great in imitating musical hits that are among the wedded couple's list of favorites. The celebration becomes extra special when they hear all their favorite music sang, all throughout their wedding celebrations. This trend was somehow inspired by reality shows on television that feature special weddings and the like.

With this kind of trend follows the increase of both amateur and professional impersonators. Many couples also become inclined in hiring impersonators. They are hired primarily to entertain and greet the wedding couple's guests during the reception.

Many other new and revived wedding features are popular nowadays. These help in the wedding industry's economical rise. Our current society is welcoming wedding of couples, old and young who celebrate their union with such fervor and lavishness. The diverse attractions and entertainment in 2008 wedding trends encourage couples to have only the best during the most memorable and important day of their lives.
