The biggest wedding design trend for
2011 is definitely Indian enthused and inspired. With Katy Perry leading
the way late last year with her traditional Hindu wedding in India,
Nicole Ritchie using an exotic elephant as a greeter at her wedding to
rocker Joel Madden and of course who can forget the wonderful film Eat, Pray, Love which will also help lead this new trend for all things Indian.
The wonderful thing about this trend is
the fabulous vibrancy of the colours that usually include palettes of
red, burnt orange, fuchsia and purple and the decor elements are rich
and lavish with lots of swagging, drapery and beading. The colour ‘Red’
is considered to be the colour of married women in India and is highly
featured within all elements of the wedding design. The wedding dress is
the most important part of the bridal attire with other elements like
jewelry, henna application and footwear completing the wedding look.
