Planning Your Fall Wedding in 2011

In 2011, fall weddings are not all about pumpkins and foliage- no need to feel trapped by your wedding date this year!

In 2011 brides planning their nuptials during the fall wedding months of September, October and November are being greeted with more wedding style options that ever before. In 2001, the fall wedding is no longer only about autumn foliage and pumpkins nestled beside glowing candles. Your bridesmaids do not have to wear heavy fabrics, you dont have to plan the ceremony indoors and feel free to step out of the foliage mindset- your style can shine through in 2011- in any way you want!  
n an earlier blog (CLICK HERE) we covered the unique hues making the rounds at fall weddings this year- rich tones that happily step away from custom.

In an earlier blog (CLICK HERE) we covered the unique hues making the rounds at fall weddings this year- rich tones that happily step away from custom. As a reminder- these colors are slated to be the hottest in 2011- the year of vividly unique, creative color trends! Plum, cream mocha and cappuccino- even red!

As a designer of custom wedding invitations and accessories, I am receiving lots of requests for color combos like aqua and chocolate, charcoal and cream, while the color combos of hot pink and charcoal are not far behind. Golds, mangos, limes- coupled with navy blues and plums~ the sky seems to be the limit when the discerning bride is planning the 2011 wedding. Lots of creative juju out there this year- such a great relief from the "traditional, basic" fall wedding scene.

When you are deciding on the date, just be sure to check out the weather in the area you are planning the event~ a really great source for weather projections around the US is HERE~ make sure you plan the dresses and ceremony according to the venue to the best of your ability. But back to colors and designs...





Once you've selected the invitation, be sure to check for coordinating postage, envelope seals and save the date reminders! Now you can get on with planning the day! Dont forget the hottest trends in fall creativity this year:

      • vintage wedding dresses with cap sleeves
      • beautiful textures
      • ornate details
      • natural settings, including outdoor and backyard weddings
      • photo booths (actual and set areas with draped-cloth backdrops)
      • vintage photography
      • eco friendly is SO in- think green as in recycled paper and locally farmed foods
      • its ok to be modern in 2011- mix and match shapes and sizes- all good!
      • Happy planning! And as always, please do not hesitate to contact me at for custom design work or advice!
