uiet, natural beauty, pure relaxation, and luxury — and an incomparable Minnesota Northwoods setting. Honeymoon dreams come true at your own special hide-away in the woods. You’ll marvel at our Texas-sized portions of clear, cool lakes and vast expanses of woodland forest.

Fly right into Duluth (on Northwest Airlines) and spend your first or last night in a lovely bed and breakfast inn. Then enjoy a leisurely drive up the scenic North Shore of Lake Superior to the historic Gunflint Trail and on to our lodge. Our Honeymoon Package includes a lakeside cottage with a private sauna and whirlpool (or a hot tub under the stars), a woodburning fireplace, VCR and CD music system, gourmet food and fine wines. Enjoy as much canoeing, hiking, boating, and horseback riding, or cross country skiing, dog sledding, and snowshoeing as you wish. It’s the perfect honeymoon retreat. For those with more adventure in mind, we also offer completely outfitted canoe trips into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

We queried our bridal shops about the bridal gown trends for 2010. The following is their responses Bridal Boutique, Lewisville 972-219-8500 We are seeing gowns with soft fabrics that are adorned with fun ruffles and flowers instead of a lot of beading and embroidery. The necklines of these gowns vary from strapless, v-neck, and halter and the fit varies from mermaid to fuller A-line skirts. For the bride that wants a more understated look the simple, fitted silhouette is still very popular. Many brides are adding a touch of personal personality with a beaded sash and veils that are edged with crystals and pearls. The romantic and traditional look of a lace wedding gowns round out our top three styles. This classic style is made modern with slim, flattering lines. Cage veils, flowers and feathers for the hair fit in with all looks and make beautiful portraits. This is a trend that we expect to see grow as many brides today do not want the traditional veil and headpiece.

Jessica McClintock, Frisco 469-633-1980 Slim and sleek is the silhouette of choice for the modern wedding dress from sheath and column styles to trumpet and mermaid cuts. Our “Body Chic Collection� gives you slim and sleek with a fabric and shape that gives you the spirit of sensual elegance. It truly reflects the changing approach of exciting fashions - bolder, more colorful, shorter, sexier and more dramatic. One shoulder styles, mini wedding dresses and adding colors and black to your wedding ensemble will continue to be very popular for 2010. If traditional styles is more your cup of tea there will be plenty of taffeta, satin and brocade fuller gathered skirt styles with extra embellishments consisting of lace, rosettes and satin covered buttons to make your wedding day perfect! The 2010 Wedding gowns styles seems to be very diverse and exciting from sleek silhouettes to mini dresses there is truly something for everyone!


Lulu’s Bridal Boutique, Dallas 214-871-9610 The most prominent trend for Spring 2010 is a timeless silhouette the Ball Gown.You will find this full skirt highlighted with delicate flowers, soft bows and flowing pick-ups. The new crumbcatcher neckline looks great with this full flowing skirt. The fashion runways were also hot this season with full romantic ruffles. Ruffles big or small add a spark of elegance to one of the most important trends for Spring 2010. They add volume and sophistication to a very feminine season. Oh my goodness, Flower Power is bigger than ever. Flowers are decorating shoulders, necklines and sometimes the entire gown. Couture blooms are just as essential as a beautiful bouquet. Another exciting trend are veils. They have become very sassy and fun. Short Russian tulle veils with pretty flowers and feathers add fun and elegance to our 2010 confident brides. Our brides today should really enjoy shopping for bridal gowns. This 2010 season designers are offering brides many more options to properly fit different body types. So brides have fun shopping. Many of these trends can be a perfect fit for you on your special day.

Bliss Bridal Salon, Fort Worth 817-332-4696 Intricate detailing, modern, eye catching necklines and modern styles are the hottest trends this year. Along with asymmetrical lines, dramatic backs, flowers and feathers are coming back into fashion for brides. A new resurgence of illusion straps and sleeves hit the runway this fall at bridal fashion market creating a romantic but edgy look for the bride. Becoming more popular are the brides that are placing emphasis on the uniqueness of their gown to set themselves apart from other brides. We are seeing more brides drawn to designers that are not over publicized and not offered everywhere so that their gown can be different instead of possibly having a friend in the same gown. Low backs, fabulous trains and uniquely different gowns are becoming must haves!
