2011 is here, and we're so excited for all of the fabulous weddings and events coming up this year! We're also excited to work with some fresh new color combinations this year.

Pantone, the leading authority on color standards for the design industry, announced their top ten color picks for 2011. The top ten hot colors for this year, according to Pantone, are:

Use these colors to get inspiration for picking your wedding or event colors. 

Honeysuckle: The "it" color for spring 2011 according to Pantone. It is a rosy magenta color that is vibrant and energizing. Honeysuckle is a flattering hue for bridesmaid dresses and accessories. 

Coral Rose: Sophisticated and spicy. Coral Rose is a warm orange hue that will be great for fall weddings and events. 

Peapod: A fresh yellow-green color that signifies new beginnings will bring an organic element to your wedding or event. 

Beeswax: A honey yellow that gets us excited for spring!

Silver Peony: A wonderful trans-seaonal neutral that is almost a nude tone. We love this color paired with the color of the year, Honeysuckle. 

Russet: Dramatic and deep, Russet is another trans-seasonal neutral that makes a chocolate brown tone beautiful for more than just a fall wedding or event. 

Regatta: Cool, refreshing, and vidid. Reminiscent of a sky-blue. Pair with Beeswax or Color Rose for a vibrant event color combo full of zest. 

Blue Curacao: A fabulous and alluring Caribbean blue, perfect for a destination wedding. Similar to last years color of the year, Turquoise. 

Lavender: Romantic and feminine, Lavender is the perfect shade to incorporate into any event with a vintage feel. 

Silver Cloud: The quintessential neutral, Silver Cloud is dependable and can be paired with any color. We especially love it with Beewax for a pretty spring combo, or with red for a dramatic touch.
