Wedding Trends: Top Wedding Colours for 2011

Choosing your wedding colours is key to the rest of the details for your wedding. Your colours will dictate your invitation style, your flowers, and even your centrepieces and wedding favours for the big day. If you want to have a truly fashionable wedding, you need to stay on top of wedding colour trends that are coming in for 2011 weddings.

As is usually the case, there are all sorts of trends coming around right now. Some are for fun, funky weddings, often with a beach or getaway theme even if they aren’t actual destination weddings. Others are toned down and have a more sophisticated feel. Depending on the look you want to create with your wedding, there are trendy colours out there to help you do it.

Fun and Funky Colours

Some of the hottest new colours for 2011 weddings are, well, hot. Bright, bold, saturated tones are really in right now. Look for colours like hot pink, bright orange, and Kelly green as you’re planning your wedding. You can often balance the visual impact of these choices with deep jewel tones, such as purple, navy, and even the chocolate brown that has been and will remain popular. Of course, one of the best ways to make your colours look fun and funky is to pair up colours that don’t necessarily ‘go’ together. Try hot pink and navy or turquoise and purple for an interesting pop.

Sophisticated Colours

For brides who want a more sophisticated and elegant feel, the colours are dusty and almost a bit old-fashioned. Think dusty pear green, light tangerine, light aqua, and gold. These colours can be paired with interesting new accent colours like grey, chestnut, and beige. Colours like these tend to work well with traditional wedding colours like ivory and can add an interesting element to invitations and decorations.

Pairing Colours

One of the latest and greatest trends for wedding colours is, again, the pairing of colours you wouldn’t normally think of together. In 2009 and 2010, this took the form of chocolate brown or black paired with bright jewel tones, turquoises, and pinks. This trend of dark and light colours together isn’t going away for 2011, either.
