Wedding Lantern Ideas – 2009 Trends

small wedding lantern cakesWedding Wish Lanterns continues it’s series of great wedding ideas.  There are a few new trends that are really becoming popular at weddings throughout the summer, this is a list of our favorite trends this year.

Bright Dresses & ColorsOne theme that is really becoming prominent among weddings is really bright tones for the outfits of the guests, in particularly the bridesmaids.  One of our favorite ideas is having the bridesmaids dressed in pink dresses, this can look lovely in contrast to the white of the Bride’s dress.  Bright tones such as yellow or orange are also becoming massively popular, and it makes a nice change having the male contingent of a wedding in something other than dark suits.

Smaller Wedding Cakes – The tradition of having a big, multi tiered wedding cake seems to be on the way out.  More and more people are instead opting to have cute, two tiered wedding cakes.  These look great in two tone colours, and it means you can have a number of different on each of the tables at the reception.

The Eco Wedding – Something we’ve mentioned before, and we hope it is more than just a trend.  Increasingly this is becoming a center part of wedding plans – reducing the impact it has on the Earth.

Wedding Lanterns – Luckily for us these are  increasingly wedding lanterns are being used as a finale to the wedding reception.  What has proved to be so popular about them is that all the guests can get involved with releasing the lanterns, creating a really intimate atmosphere and making people feel that they are really part of the proceedings.
