Since our launch earlier this year, we've been at the forefront of all things Big Day-related. We brought you the latest news on celebrity nuptials, reports from the front lines of bridal fashion week, personal essays about everything from gay engagements to inter-faith holidays, and updates on the most hotly-anticipated fictional weddings (ahem, that's you, Bella and Edward). Bottom line: we've seen it all. Including, of course, the hottest wedding trends. Here, we've narrowed down the many, many trends we saw this year to just 11 that we think most took the wedding world by storm this year.

Now it's time for you to weigh in. Click through the slideshow and let us know -- do you love 'em, or hate 'em?

This year, brides and grooms took wedding food to the next level, rolling out locally-sourced, artisanal fare, creative wine pairings, and new "courses" (late-night after-party comfort food, anyone?) for wedding guests everywhere. Some even swapped the ho-hum chicken-steak-fish trifecta for treats like tacos, donuts and sushi served out of cleverly-named food trucks. Celebs like Tamera Mowry even got in on the act.
