As 2010 is coming to an end, the question will be what new trends will we be seeing in 2011?
ALL SHAPES & SIZES
A trend that we might see for either a wedding or corporate event would be mixing the different shape and sizes of the tables. Instead of having your regular circular tables, opt for using triangular and square tables alongside with the circular tables. This could be a trend that can switch things up from your more traditional structured event and be quite unique.
TRAGEDIES IN THE WORLD
Listening to the news and hearing about all the tragedies happening in the world can leave some of us sick to our stomachs. From Hurricane Katrina to The Haiti Earthquake and the most recent one the Explosion at the Mexican Resort, why not get away from the traditional gift and get your guests to donate money to a charity of their choice. This is a great way to help others in need instead of getting serving dish that you don’t need!
A NIGHTCLUB SETTING
A trend that is becoming more and more popular is the “Lounge” “Nightclub” feel. Dump the “Assigned” seating chart and have the biggest gala on the block. Design a setting where the guests can socialize and party the night way but still be able to sit down in a tasteful atmosphere. This trend is a great way to make sure the party goes on all night long.
I remember when I got married back in 2006, I went to view our venue and there was a wedding set up with Brown and Pink. I had mixed feelings regarding these two wedding colors together but it became a very popular trend. However, it is now fading into history and new color trends are emerging such as the color “Grey”. Grey can be mixed with all sorts of colors such as yellow, blush and lime green.
A very popular color that will always be a trend is your traditional black and white. Most people will put Red with these colors but in the upcoming year you will see more bold colors such as teal, yellow and lime green.
A UNIQUE DRESS FOR ANY OCCASSION
The shopaholic that I am I happened to stumble upon a website today called Simply Dresses (www.simplydresses.com) and found a very unique dress that could be used for any special occasion. The funny part is after I saw this dress, I was on facebook and this dress came up on my newsfeed from a page that I have “liked”. The dress is a detachable dress; it can be worn long and can be torn off into a short cocktail dress. I thought this dress would be the perfect bridesmaid dress. You could wear it long for the ceremony and turn it into a cocktail dress to dance the night away. The best part about this site is that they ship to Canada…YAY!!
