Wedding Trends for 2011

We got this email today and found it pretty interesting. According to the theweddingreport.com these are the trends for 2011 couples - do you agree or disagree?


  • Many couples will pay at least 60% of the total wedding cost.
  • The average number of guests will be between 140 and 150.
  • The average age of a bride will be 27 and the average age of a groom will be 29.
  • The most popular wedding months will be September, October, July and May.
  • The most popular wedding colors will be blues, purples, pinks and greens.
The pantone color of the year for 2011 weddings has been revealed: Honeysuckle
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute states: “In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues. Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum. Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.” (We love this! And we love the color!)

  • We will continue to see friends and family members help out.
  • We will see couples booking closer to the wedding day or on off popular days.
  • Designer labels will continue to gain market share by creating more affordable lines.
Our dresses are pretty affordable! Like style 041 - Retail Price $505.00
  • Low cost, personalized favors and details will become even more popular.
We prefer using homemade items that people will use, you can do the most fun thing EVER! The Candy/Treat Table Guests go goo-goo over them

    Real Brides - Jody

    JODY and RICK
    "Rick and I got engaged in January 2009 and even though we had about a year and a half before our July 2010 wedding date I started shopping for my dress fairly quickly. I looked online and in countless shops for the right dress and I found some I liked... but none that I loved. After trying on tons of dresses I finally was lucky enough to go to the Bonny website where I saw a beautiful Bonny gown (847) and fell in love with it. I then found a bridal shop that carried it and went to try it on and loved it even more (and I loved the price). Bonny was even able to alter it a bit at the time of ordering - I really wanted a lace up back and I was able to add that to my gown that didnt originally have it. I felt amazing on my wedding day wearing my dress and my husband loved it!"

    Jody...thank you for sharing your story and pictures with us! We would love to even see more! Your location looked amazing, the dress looks gorgeous and we love the black shirt and pants with white vest! Style 847

    Short, Sweet and Pretty in Pink Prom 2011

    This delicious pink prom gown is featured in Cosmo Pink. Just perfect for any pop princess! One of the great things about this dress is that it is also available for an entire year! Most of our Mystique Prom gowns are only available during prom season but, this year we hand picked 20 styles that will be good for the entire year!! This means style 3104 is the perfect pretty in pink gown for any special occasion...and the price will not break the bank either! Suggested retail price is $205.00. Our entire collection of Mystique Prom gowns are available in sizes 0 - 28


    Also available in Black (GORGEOUS) and Island Blue!

    Silver Bells - Silver Wedding

    We love a little color....we love things that are a little different. We love dramatic red, bold black or shimmering silver. Our bridal gown today is style 937 from the Bonny Classic Collection. A strapless gown with embroidered and beaded lace that falls from the soft sweetheart neckline into the pleated bodice. Drapes and pleats flow down the full skirt and create a bustled back with a decorated semi-cathedral train. This gown, pictured in Silver Princess Taffeta has Platinum accents.


    Your mom and bridesmaids will not be without amazing choices in silver! Here are just a few gowns from our Special Occasions collection:
