If you're reading Enizio's blog, you already qualify as a top-notch bride, so here is some insider information all in-the-know brides must know.

Fresh from three days of Wedding Forecasting Seminars and three more days in Chicago at bridal market, I have been privy to all the best tips and trends for the coming year from Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides.com, WeddingWire, TheKnot, and many other amazing wedding professionals. So, what should the 2010 bride look for and look forward to?

Here are some of my favorite finds:

Crimson and Aqua will still prove strong. Pink, yellow, and orange will transform into muted and taffy tones. Less vibrant than previous takes on these hues.

Tangerine and Cobalt. Yep, really! Think clean and fresh, but very dynamic.

Ceremony/Reception Trends
Backdrops for Photo-Ops: Picture a DIY chalkboard, or a map of your favorite places to travel, positioned for guests to caprute themselves next to your sign in book.

Multiple Cakes: Speard them around the reception area, include a gooms cake, and why not a replica of your parent's cake, too?

Bigger Wedding Parties: Admit it, you love your family. Why not include all those sisters, his sisters, your brothers, and your close friends. Bring your loved one near and let them be a part of your big day.

Attire Trends
All White (think ivory, ercru, diamond white): That big weding party I was just talking about... Word has it donning them in all white is the next "IT" trend.

Patterned Bridesmaid dresses. Not up for the all white. Patterns from plaid to floral are showing up on all the best runways.

Big is Back: Ballgowns are back in bridal fashion. New takes on the classic skirt give a fresh interpretation for a bride wanting an elegant affair, but still with all the modern deligths.

Theme Trends
Wedding Logos: Brand yourself! Creat a unique monogram and place it on your invitations, aisle runner, programs, and even your favors.

Ahead of the Curve: 2010 Wedding trends

Lace: Not just for gowns anymore, you can decorate centerpieces, place settings, and even your stationery.

Sea Glass: Imagine translucent shades or sea blue and green, glossy bottles incorporated into table decor, and favors centered around these off-beat collectibles.
