Weddings Trends for 2011

2011 is well under way and we're so excited about the fabulous trends we're sure to see a lot of in weddings and events this year! Some of these trends started last year and will continue to be HUGE this year, and others are new to 2011. Here are 14 noteworthy trends we're loving for this year! 

1. With a new year means a new color of the year. And this year's color honeysuckle conjures up feels of rejuvenation, youth, and happiness. It is beautiful paired with grey, taupe, champagne, or even a bright like yellow.

2. Vintage touches. Borrow a grandmother's broach or piece of jewelry for your hair, on a chair treatment, or even on your cake. Bonus is that it doubles as your something old.
