Backyard Weddings at Home
These days it is very important to my clients to cut unneccasary funds where they can. If you have a family memeber or friends with some property, why not have a smaller ceremony on their land where you don't have to follow typical rental hall rules. See my post about picnic themed weddings as well for more ideas.
Homemade Wedding Favors
This one is fun! Why not take a candel making class or find a cute how-to project at your local craft store to do with your bridesmaids. It is more meaningful to you and if you do something that represents you and your fiance, it will mean more to your guests as well.
These are a long time love of mine! Amazing with the right dress. We did a post on them not too long ago. Etsy has some great shops with origional designs for any type of bride.
Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses
I was in a wedding a couple years ago ( our year of 15 weddings in 11 months that my family was invited too including my big bros wedding!) where the bride picked the color of the dress at David's Bridal and then we all picked a different style. I like this idea because your size 4 bridesmaid and size 14 may not look the same nor feel comfortable in the same dress.
Strapless Wedding Dresses
These have been popular for years but this 2010 they will still hold the brightest candel in brides eyes. Try David's Bridal or Wedding Bell Bride if you are in the Tacoma area..both are great!
