Many of you who are in the wedding planning process now are probably looking forward to a 2011 date.
Lucky for you, Perfect Wedding Guide just released the top trends for the two million plus weddings that will take place next year.

Eco-friendly tote bag favors will be a hip and memorable commodity among your friends, since they'll never run out of uses for them.
