OneWed recently emailed us a list of the site’s top 10 wedding trends for 2011, and for most of them we couldn’t agree more! Here are a few of the top trends we agree will be making a big splash in the coming year:
From big vineyard weddings to intimate backyard events, we love the idea of getting married in the great outdoors this year.
Gray is the New Black, Crazy for Navy
We particularly love pairing gray and navy tones with vibrant hues for a bold look in 2011.
Mad for Metallics
The right hint of gold, silver or copper will add a welcome sense of luxe style to your wedding planning.
Wedding Invitations Go Green
Wedding Paper Divas has always been way ahead of this trend! All of our collections feature a combination of recycled paper, post-consumer waste material, elementally chlorine-free ink or sustainable forestry practices.
Cultural Wedding Details
Our new collection (which has already started to be released!) features a wealth of culturally inspired designs that we’re calling “Haute Heritage.”

Summer always brings to mind thoughts of warm weather and bright, bold colors, so hosting a summer wedding celebration nearly requires that your save the date cards conjure up the same images. Even if you aren’t hosting a beach wedding, you can easily create chic, customized save the date cards that will epitomize your guests’ favorite parts of summer if you follow these easy steps to creating the perfect summer save the date cards for your celebration.
Plus, don’t forget—save the date cards should be sent at least six months in advance of your wedding date.
Pair a crisp, cool color with a bold, vibrant one. Select colors that are complimentary, but not too similar—think mellow gray with sunshiny yellow, or deep navy blue with crisp, classic white. These contrasts will give your summer save the date cards an extra sense of depth and charm.
Sending them in winter? Scale back the summer motifs. Instead of covering your save the date cards with palm trees and seashells, simply use a single anchor or the image of a sailboat to indicate to your guests that your sweet summer wedding is looming on the horizon.
Leave something to the imagination. Don’t be afraid to add a little mystery to your summer save the dates. Hint at the theme of your event, but don’t show your whole hand too soon.
Follow these simple guidelines as an easy way to incorporate summer style into your save the date cards, and you and your guests will be looking forward to your chic celebration in no time!
Want to keep the celebration going long after you say “I do?” Wedding announcements are the perfect way to share your recent nuptials with guests who regretfully declined your invite, or with friends, family, coworkers and other acquaintances who weren’t invited but would still be delighted by the news that you tied the knot.
These are my top picks from our striking collection of wedding announcements—which do you see yourself in?
