Wedding Trends 2011

My shop has a variety of items with many great gifts for everyone.  However, a good portion of my work is dedicated to weddings with bouquets, boutonnieres, jewelry, and hair accessories.  Weddings are a so much fun, such an amazing celebration of love and life, and a great place to add individualization and personality.  Taking the advice one of my fellow bloggers, I've started to think about the importance of knowing my target clientele and also the purpose of my blog.  So, today I've decided to share some wedding trends for 2011.   Here's 5 trends  I found at the BeautyBridal.com


1Vintage touches

2Eco-friendly weddings

3Modern choices

4DIY weddings

5Social media influence


I'll be sure to try to keep these ideas in mind as I develop new products for my shop.  Here's a few items I currently have for sale in my shop that fit in with some of these themes:




Reclaimed Ivory Silk  Bridal Flower Clip








Set of 4 Yellow Industrial Steampunk Boutonnieres




Eco-friendly Reclaimed Sarah Coventry Pearl Necklace & Earring Set

  4. Great that you found the trends. Your items are awesome! For eco-friendly, you could make your flower bouquet arrangements out of newspapers or other salvageable paper. They would be super-pretty.

  12. Those items are beautiful, and thanks for sharing those top trends. It is really important to keep market trends like that in mind when coming up with new products. Not only will it help with sales, but it could help with blog traffic if you focus on that content, and it could help get your shop more publication features!
