Wedding Color Trend Forecasts for 2011-2012


As a wedding planner, you have to be forward thinking and keep up with trends or soon-to-be trends. Brides want to be on top of trends the moment they hit, not repeat something that’s been done. So with a little research from other industry folks and what clients love, we’re going to share with you color trend forecasts for 2011-2012!

Daring Bolds

Chicago’s Kehoe Designs has created two color palettes called “Chicago Classics”: jet black, gentleman’s gray, opal white, shadow gold, and accent hues like emerald green, Turkish blue, and garnet red. The other palette, “Istanbul Style”: azure blue, Indian pink, pearlized turquoise, copper gold, petrol blue and ruby red. “This look is more theatrical, exotic and glamorous than in previous years.”

Neutrals for the Refined 

In fashion right now, neutral shades like pale pink, taupe, and shades of white will stay prominent in wedding color trends. The colors are great for brides who want to project a sense of refinement, simplicity, and tradition. They also work well for budget-friendly brides since they can function as backdrop colors with bursts of color popping up in florals or lighting.

Our Favorite and What Works For Us

Orange! Yes, sometimes you just have to go with the color that works best for you. Sometimes you have to say “To heck with these trends!” and opt with complimentary colors or colors which represent you and your groom. We love the orange color because it’s warm, vibrant, exciting and it attracts others. Finding out the meaning of colors or how others perceive it can help you determine if the color is right for you.
