Black Magic Roses:
Say bye-bye to lilies. After a year filled with flirty florals like daisies and hydrangeas, celebrity couples including Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz and Billy Martin and Linzi Williamson chose to go the dark and lovely route. Black Magic roses are darker than an average red rose and look much fuller. The flower symbolizes beauty, love, and deep passion, making it the perfect choice for an evening wedding or a romantic setting.

First Daughter Jenna Bush had a bridal party of 14 at her Texas wedding last year, but she didn't force them to dress alike. Instead, she enlisted the help of celebrity bridal designer Lela Rose to create not one, not two, but seven separate bridesmaid dress styles in seven different colors. Celebrity bridesmaids in friends' weddings have also been seen following this trend, including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
