2010 Wedding Peaks

In a previous post I mentioned that blue was a very popular trend in wedding colors this year and while that is very true (I am currently working on 6 weddings that incorporate blue in one shade or another) the only other color with as much popularity this season is PINK!  

I would love to share with you my first invitation of the 2010 Bridal Season. Normally, I would wait for the big day to pass but this particular wedding is 1) a destination wedding and 2) these invitations were only being distributed to family and friends overseas.. so I thought it would be safe to share it with everyone.

Loralie and Rich's custom pocket invitation combines light pink and fuschia metallic with
chocolate brown. The invitation was closed with a gorgeous belly band cut from Japanese cherry blossom paper.  This invitation is both sweet and elegant and showcases one of my favorite pink combinations: pink and chocolate brown.. classic and chic :) 

Other Favorite Pink combinations:
Raspberry Pink + Orange
Hot Pink + Navy Blue
Coral + Cappuccino
Light Pink + Sand
Hot Pink + Kiwi Green

2010 Bridal Trends

Hi Everyone! Today I am excited to share a special blog post by my friends over at Glass Slipper Weddings and Events in Matawan, NJ.

2010 Bridal Trends We Love!- By Glass Slipper Weddings and Events

2010 is now in full swing, and already there are some cute, sassy, and fun wedding trends emerging. Here are a few that we're definitely in love with:

1. Wedding shoes in bold colors or prints. Whether it's hot pink, leopard print, or gingham, brides are letting a little personality peek through under the white skirts.

2. Birdcage veils. We love the retro, glamourous look of a delicate birdcage veil. Add in some pastel feathers or a vintage-look ornament to complete the look. It's timeless and yet so modern.

3. Useful favors. Couples today are eschewing the little bag of jordan almonds in favor of must-haves such as purse hooks, cute bottles of sunscreen, personalized water bottles, sewing kits, or even keyboard dusters! Finally, a wedding favor that your guests will keep for years.

4. The return of the "getaway dress." It's the end of the reception - time to change into a gorgeous new outfit for your "getaway"! This dress can be any color, not necessarily white, and adds a fun twist to the reception dress idea.

Thank you to Rachael and Heather at the Glass Slipper for this awesome post! Feel free to leave me a comment with your favorite wedding ideas or trends!

Happy Wedding Planning,
