Become a Top Wedding Planner – Learn The Latest Wedding Trends and Tips



Wedding trends and tips were the topics on the ABC television show, “The View,” on Friday. They filled their entire program with guest experts from the wedding industry.

Here are some of the trends and tips which will give you ideas when planning weddings for your brides:

Wedding Dresses

Wedding gown designer Amsale Aberra showed some of her beautiful gowns which highlighted the latest trends:

  • Lace wedding gowns inspired – by Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
  • Non-white dresses.
  • Skirt interest (see above).
  • Lightness – using tulle and organza.
  • Short dresses – can  used for engagement parties, the wedding brunch and the reception.

Amsale also offered these additional tips:

  • A bride should not worry about what size she is when selecting a style, it’s the body shape that matters the most.
  • The cost of a gown is dependent on the fabric, the time spent on making the dress and beading.

Amsale has a television show starting on June 12 on WEtv.


Carley Roney of “The Knot”  shared food the drink trends

  • Wedding theme should be carried out in the food and drink.
  • No more boring chicken and beef dishes.
  • Food inspiration comes from food trucks and food street vendors around the globe.
  • Your brides should be taking their guests on an excursion, serve food such as European crepes and Chinese dumplings (dim sum).
  • Cocktails should also follow the theme.

Flowers on a Budget

Carley gave these tips for saving money on flowers:

  • Select less expensive flowers, such as carnations and mums, and use them in bulk, they will look amazing.
  • Stay with flowers that are in season.
  • Colors are hot right now but a bride should not use too much color in her bouquet, it will be overwhelming in front of a white dress.
  • If she wants a colored bouquet, keep it small, let the bridesmaids carry the color.

Wedding Attire

Randy Fenoli of Kleinfeld ( you’ve seen him on, “Say Yes to the Dress”) offered this information:

  • The groom’s attire should be the same level of formality as the bride’s.
  • 80% of wedding gowns today are strapless and they are not just a trend. Wedding gowns are fitted garments. If you put sleeves on a fitted garment, the bride will not be able to move her arms.
  • If your bride is self conscious about her arms, she can add a shrug or bolero in a light-weight fabric that doesn’t add bulk.
  • Your second time brides should feel free to wear veils. Just make it lower and longer than a first time bride. (Nothing poofy or outrageous.)
  • Alternatives to a veil are flowers or a jeweled headpiece.
