This month we're going to be taking a closer look at some of the most popular trends coming up in 2010. We'll start with nature, the catalyst of a bucolic movement we're seeing in bridal wear, embracing all things living: Flowers, leaves and feathers are showing up with interesting applications whether printed, embroidered or applied.

I like the last one a lot - floral bridalwear tends to get overboard sometimes, but it can look so chic if done the right way!

This ones definitely for me, I like the second one, very pretty. Trawling through all the posts I've missed whilst being away its what stood out the most... though I am meant to be focusing on the kind of shape that appeals most, still so much to think about
