Wedding color trends 2011

Choosing a color for your wedding is definitely a matter of taste. If you hate green, you’re not going to choose it, are you? However, there are lots of people in the wedding industry with a great eye for colour who come up with original combinations that perhaps would never have occurred to you. So here are some ideas from the wedding world about beautiful colour schemes that we predict will be big in 2011.

I love navy. I love the formality of it, the vintage feel and the fact that it’s not black. So my vote goes to navy, combined with a gorgeously sumptuous yellow (one of my favorite all time colors. Its so happy!). Here’s an example from Vibrant Bride:

Bright colours are also big for 2011. These include hot pink, orange and apple green. They bring some beautiful touches to a wedding and are particularly nice for summer weddings.

A nice alternative is vintage-style colors – khaki greens, creams and burnt red. These colors are particularly nice for spring and outdoor weddings.

Bringing in grey as a mixer was already something that started emerging in 2010 and will continue into 2011, as will the emerging trend for nudes, like coral or peach.

If you are unsure about which colors compliment or contrast well with each other, why not use Pantone by The Dessy Group? You can bring together lots of different looks and compare color combinations, to make sure you get the look you want!

Happy planning!
