Hot color trends for 2010!

The word is out…vibrant brights and practical neutrals are the color trends for spring 2010! Why do invitation designers care about fashion color trends? Well, fashion color trends translate into popular wedding colors (bridesmaid dresses, floral designs, and linens) and those colors are often the inspiration for our wedding invitation designs. Don’t be afraid to mix your favorite fun colors like violet, turquoise, coral or fuchsia with neutral earth tones like Tuscany, pink champagne, off white, or eucalyptus. Bridesmaids are always looking for a fun pop of color that will draw attention to the overall feel of your wedding and reception.

Brides, think about wearing a bright fun colored sash to match your bridesmaid dresses to add a little extra spice. If you are getting married in the spring or summertime outside, be playful with the colors you choose; they will clash perfectly with the greens of the trees around you or a great blue of the ocean side. For a nice dramatic look, have your bridesmaids wear all different shades of purple, pink or whatever color you choose!
Don't forget about those accessories! Jeweled stilettos, drop-dead gorgeous chandelier earrings, cool metallic clutches...dramatic silver accessories give "blue-girl" bridesmaids some fine heavy metal to play with.
