WeddingChannel's Spring Wedding Trends has some compiled some of the hottest trends in 2008 weddings, inspired by some of 2007's hottest celebrity weddings. Are you a trend-setter??

Dresses with Feminine Flourishes
Inspired by the striking tiers in “Desperate Housewives” actress Eva Longoria’s Angel Sanchez wedding dress, brides tying the knot in 2008 will be donning wedding dresses with a flurry of feminine flowers and sophisticated tiers.

“Whether it was kept understated or embraced wholeheartedly, flowers and tiers were seen all over the spring 2008 wedding runway shows and in the collections of Reem Acra, Monique Lhuillier, and Claire Pettibone,” says fashion expert and bridal institution Kleinfeld Bridal co-owner Mara Urshel.

Unique Wedding LocationsNothing makes more of an impact than the location of your wedding, and an Art-Deco backdrop is just the ticket. Get on board with what The Oprah Winfrey Show correspondent Lisa Ling and Paul Song had in mind when they got married at Union Station in Los Angeles. From Grand Central station in New York City to Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station to Chicago Union Station, these historic locales are perfect for the bride who loves the grandeur of an old-world train station.Above Union Station photo from Here Comes the Guide.

City Hall ChicFor brides who start breaking out in hives at the thought of 13 months of wedding planning, a low-key city hall wedding may just be the perfect solution. Never one to bask in the limelight, “Grey’s Anatomy” star Ellen Pompeo and music producer Chris Ivery scrapped the paparazzi madness and had a private civil ceremony at City Hall in New York City. With an off-the-rack dress and loved one by your side, a down-to-earth wedding can sometimes be the most intimate affair of all. (Photo by Red Loft Studios)

Do-Good GiftsOver the years, charity registries have continued to become increasingly popular among celebrities and non-celebrities, from Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, to Billy Joel and Katie Lee Joel, to Nikki Taylor and Burney Lamar. The newest boldface names to register for a charity in lieu of wedding gifts include Sarah Gore and Bill Lee, and Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman. (Photo by Robert Evans Studios)
