So IN: Blush! Brides are steering away from traditional styles, and choosing to wow their grooms with softer, more romantic wedding dress colors. Blush will be particularly hot in 2012, and it's often a more flattering color for every skin tone.

So OUT: White! What was once the only acceptable option for a wedding dress color is now considered medieval-faux-pas!

Dress Style:
So IN: Minis! If you think you look better in a shorter cocktail dress than a floor length gown, you're in LUCK! Mini-skirts are making a scene on the wedding gown runways, AND, you will absolutely make a scene on your dance floor runway!

So OUT: Rouched Bubble Gowns! Eek! The once sought after "cotton candy" look is no longer the trend. Instead, rather than something that will "date" you in your wedding photos 10 years from now, opt for something with more classy longevity.

So IN: Red HOT high heels. Matching your shoes to wedding theme colors is all the rage, and will make a major personality statement, not to mention super cute photos!

So OUT: Dying your shoes to match your dress. Not everything needs to be matchy-matchy, so spare yourself the stress of trying to perfectly match your shoes to your gown.

So IN: Birdcage Veils! Vintage modern is still very trendy, and stores such as have the best selection of hand-crafted veils.

So OUT: Tiaras! Apparently, they are a headache!

Bridesmaid Dresses:
So IN: Pockets! If and when you find a sassy and stylish dress with pockets, immediately hand over the credit card! Bridesmaids love being able to carry lip gloss, IDs, toasting notes, and the wedding rings down the aisle, without having to stash into their bras.
