The 2011 trend for weddings is color — vibrant and striking. Fun and whimsical! Hot colors for 2011, such as apple green, hot pink, slate grey, vintage gold, coral, violet, navy blue, emerald green, clementine orange and yellow can be expected.
Mix and match tables
A mixture of square, rectangular, long and round tables will be seen. The same goes for chairs — they shouldn’t be the same but should complement one another (i.e. same chair in different color or different cushion). Also, tabletop items can be varied with various table scenarios…different china and glassware to create a “collection” look. Also, creating a lounge vibe so that the wedding is not so formal is a hot trend. Forget assigned seating.
Modern meets vintage
Even if your wedding style is modern and contemporary, add some vintage touches. Wear your mother’s wedding dress or incorporate your parents’ and/or grandparents’ wedding pictures into the décor to create an atmosphere of nostalgia and romance.
