Garden of Life Wedding Invitation

2009 Wedding Colors This Year, Go Bold!

As we all know white is the traditional colour for a wedding dress but brides are getting creative and want to throw caution to the wind by using more contemporary colours for their big day. In 2007 and 2008 some of the most popular colours were lilac with purple tones, chocolate and soft greens (one of my favorites) the trend for 2009 continues with the added explosion of colours that are fresher, brighter and even using quirky colour combinations. Colours for 2009 are far more out there than in past years, more exotic, brighter and more luminous, can you say exotic Moroccan Bedouin.

The key is to create a mood and the mood is exotic glamour using a bold hit of colour without going overboard. How can you do this, it's easy, keep the main areas of the wedding understated and classic, then add extravagant touches using the colours of your choice. How do you start this why the best way to do this is with your wedding invitation. Get your guests intrigued from Save-the-Date card to your table linens, its all about the design and the colour.

Here is my design for red and pink - an unexpected and quirky color combination that works well together for the centerpieces or bridesmaids outfits but it all starts with the invitation. Let me know what you think.

When you move the belly band over it reveals the flap which when closed has the flower stamped inside; added just a little added touch.
