Wedding Trends 2011| Unexpected Pops of Color

Every year in January the wedding industry predicts trends for the upcoming wedding season. For 2011, emphasis on details + do-it-yourself projects continue to rise and handmade is no exception! We have noticed an increasing amount of handmade decor, fashion, and accessories with unexpected pops of color, creative detailing and personal touches. Thank goodness… with the gray skies of winter, we certainly welcome brilliant creativity with open arms! Bye bye, boring palettes – hello, color!


Speaking of colorful creativity, we are thrilled to introduce you to our newest handmade crush, Andrea Gray Harper. Andrea handcrafts some of the most brilliant fabric bridal bouquets, ring pillows and decor we have ever seen! Take a peek at this unique yo-yo decor (we love!) + some hand-picked favorites:




And, you know us – there’s still tons of wedding inspiration coming right ‘atcha later today! In fact, we are launching our brand new giveaway this afternoon! Subscribe to our RSS feeds for posts straight to your inbox!
