Happy New Year! As we have now reflected on the past year (good, bad, and ugly), I am looking ahead to the possibilities of change and to new and exciting endeavors! To start off on the right foot, let's look at some of what we in the wedding world can look forward to in 2009...
The biggest wedding trends in 2009 are bold, bright color palettes, exotic themes and a classic romance feel. I have been hearing and seeing this trend over the past few weeks and like what I see. Vintage style wedding gowns, food tasting stations instead of the adored buffet line, and Caribbean locations will reign in 2009.
Check out this article for the lowdown on all of these new trends.
Here are a few of the new and upcoming designs that turned my head.
Turquoise is a big color and really fits in with the tropical/exotic locations.
Yellow accents are a great spring color and super trendy for 2009.
Pair yellow with navy blue and you have sort of a nautical feel great for the warm weather preppy bride. Here are some elements of a navy and yellow themed wedding from the Tastefully Entertaining board.
And last but not least the super romantic color - PINK! All shades of pink will pop up this year. Here are a few that I find super elegant.
