From stylish wedding themes and fresh inspiration to this year’s best new color schemes, Wedding Paper Divas has surveyed its top-selling wedding invitations and save the date cards to gather together the hottest wedding trends of the year, including:
Wedding Themes & Inspirations:
Enchanted Forest: The spring bride of 2010 is inspired by the earthy (yet heavenly) feeling of an ethereal wedding. Soft, romantic elements and pastel tones are perfectly accented with fanciful details.
Sweet Nostalgia: The “Mad Men”-obsessed bride-to-be is in love with 1950s and 1960s flair for her big day, gathering inspiration from refined-retro style, carnival-chic food and playful decor.
Jewel Tones: The glamorous bride loves 2010′s rich jewel tones for a luxurious fall wedding. Plush and pretty peacock inspiration is refined in an elegant but decidedly bold new way to incorporate this look.
Dark Romance: For winter 2010, vintage Hollywood glamour and dark fairytale romances are all the rage, with rich red hues, black and white accents and sparkling chandeliers making everything glimmer in a subtle and sophisticated way.
Fresh Color Trends
Expect to see both classic and fresh, new palettes appearing as top trends for wedding colors, including bold turquoise, coral and peach tones, vintage violet, pumpkin, champagne, pink, ivory and golden yellow.
The Rise of the Localista
In today’s economy, many couples will move away from the exotic in favor of the practical. Expect destination weddings to take on a new twist with the rise of the “localista.” This bride will plan a local “destination wedding” at a nearby location to celebrate the unique personality of the couple, but also allow easier access for friends and family.
