Music videos, moonshine and man caves -- here's what's hot for 2011. Take a look, get excited, and then steal a few of these ideas for your wedding day.

1. Prohibition-Era Elegance So long, Mad Men -- the most stylish new show is Boardwalk Empire, so feel free to take a wedding style cue from the dapper fashion of the 1920s. Think dusty nude and lace dresses for your bridesmaids and wing-tip shoes for the guys. And it wouldn't feel like the Prohibition era without alcohol. To reinterpret the boozy nights of the Roaring '20s, serve up "moonshine" and Prohibition "bathtub gin" in your very own speakeasy bar, all while guests dance the night away to jazz (naturally!).

2. The Redefined Princess Wedding Dress With a royal wedding around the corner, you can bet Kate Middleton's going to alter what princess style is all about. But put away the ball-gown skirt because the new princess silhouette will be body-skimming with a bold train. Add statement-making headwear like tasteful tiaras (seriously!) and cathedral-length veils. And don't be afraid of sophisticated sequins and beading showing up on everything from the wedding dress to the floral arrangements and the wedding cake.

3. Sultry Ballerina-Inspired Weddings From feathered headpieces and shredded fabrics to airy plumes and pale pinks paired with black, the look of the season is all about ambient romance (think Black Swan), where everything happens after 8 p.m. One idea we love? Romantic wedding ceremonies by candlelight.

4. Ivy League-Chic Weddings From Fair Isle sweaters to Vineyard Vines ties and Tommy Hilfiger blazers, preppy chic is back in a big way, and weddings aren't immune. Channel your inner Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl or Ali MacGraw from Love Story and incorporate Ivy League-chic details like plaids and stripes for the perfect remix of retro, preppy sensibility.

5. Exotic Indian Inspiration From Katy Perry's Indian wedding and Eat, Pray, Love to Nicole Richie's exotic elephant as a wedding greeter, India is definitely the "it" country for wedding inspiration. To get the look, choose a vibrant color palette like purples, reds and golds, lavish decor elements such as beading and rich drapery, and exotic, spicy dishes.

6. Wedding Man Caves Blackjack tables, brandy bars, PlayStations and stogies. The man cave has officially moved from the home to the wedding, so create your own and don't be surprised if you see all the male wedding guests in the new "groom's corner" at the reception.

7. Prewedding PJ Parties We're not talking about Bachelorette Party, Part Two. Before the wedding day, plan a night of pampering and bonding via JHS-style slumber parties, complete with matching pj's.

8. Food Truck Fun Waffles, tacos and dumplings -- oh yes! If you have a hunger for gourmet food trucks, embrace it wholeheartedly by requesting makeshift sidewalk carts during the cocktail hour or food trucks for the wedding after-party.

9. Haute Desserts Blame it on the popularity of Top Chef: Just Desserts, Amazing Cakes and Cake Boss, but cake bakers and pastry chefs are churning out incredible desserts and wedding cakes with gourmet flavors and haute style. Chocolate tart with a dash of sea salt, anyone?

10. Video Guest Books Building on the idea of wedding photo booths, take it up a notch and create a confessional-style video booth for your guests to say a few words about you to the camera. You could even dress up your iPad as a guest book as the newest way for guests to "write" you well wishes. Bonus? Postwedding, you can easily share your guest book online via YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr or Vimeo.

11. Surprise Honeymoons Ladies, butt out! Take a cue from Chelsea Clinton's wedding and leave it up to your groom to plan a surprise honeymoon.
