The Wedding Salon Presents 2011 Trends

New York City was overflowing with brides and celebrity event planners for The Wedding Salon at Manhattan Center Studios. The Wedding Salon showcased showcased new elements in weddings for 2011 including aerial performers and pop art sculptures that capture the personalities of the fun-loving bride and groom. Here are some of the highlights:

Out-of-the-Box Entertainment

This was deemed the ultimate trend for 2011. Brides will look to surprise their guests whether it is aerial performers dancing from the ceiling above the dance floor, or walking chandeliers that greet guests on sky-high stilts. Brides will look for never-before seen elements for their wedding days.


Earthy Tones

Shawn Rabideau of Bravo’s Bethenny Getting Married reveals that natural table displays with sky-high branches and unique accents such as tulip bulbs and floral combining elements of all four seasons, will be a huge trend for the year ahead. Michelle Rago revealed that brides will look to nature for gorgeous accents whether it is seashell bouquets for a destination wedding or mason jars filled with seashells for centerpieces, accented with candles.



Larger than Life Centerpieces

The team behind Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas’ wedding, david beahm design, created an elaborate table display with sand-blasted grapevine. This larger-than-life wooden cage-like centerpiece dripping with all-white orchids, roses and peonies took on a new play on wooden centerpieces showing that wooden structures will be used in new ways in the year ahead.


Pop Art Sculptures

Brides will additionally look to pop art by choosing massive structures and sculptures to enhance their décor and wedding lounges, such as Mark Tamayo’s “Heart Sculpture.” Brides will opt for playful favors such as these Venetian Masks from Dream Italian Honeymoon and Wedding Destination, Villa Foscarini Cornaro. These masks will give a sneak peek into the honeymoon or are the perfect favor for an Italian Destination Wedding at Villa Foscarini Cornaro.
