Color Combos & Patterns – Pastels are out, rich colors are in. Navy, orange with dark ruby reds, plum, and amber are hot colors for 2009 weddings. Chocolate brown is still a great color to include in your palette but black and grey are coming back strong this year. Bronzes and coppers are popular metallic choices. Patterns such as toile, florals, and damask are HUGE this year.
Tapas and Sample Stations – Tasting bars for cocktail hour are a huge hit for weddings. Paired wine and cheese stations are educational and fun for guests. More than half of our couples from 2008 opted for fun dinner stations instead of the more traditional sit-down dinner or buffet. And guess what? Their guests LOVED it!
Stay tuned for the final part in this series on 2009 wedding trends! You don’t want to miss the best part.
