I knew it: Honeysuckle,Wedding trend 2011!

There are three main trends for colour themes in 2011. The vintage feel, catwalk nudes and the color 'pop'.The color pop will work brilliantly at any summer or autumn wedding and bright colors big for 2011 include hot pinks, bright oranges, azure blues and apple greens.
The 2011 wedding trends include rustic-chic concepts, lots of details and a ton of creativity. Outdoor weddings are a big must as soon as the sun begins to shine (or not!) and indoor weddings are getting a little break.
Driftwood Burnt Orange Sandals
Faux rose petals, diamond confetti and shells/starfish remain the most popular confetti. Also, flowering vines or individually cut flowers are placed directly onto table linens. Reception chairs are decorated with either tulle, fabric overlays, floral swags and/or ribbons. Other popular decorating items include Chinese lanterns, garlands and balloons. Disposable cameras, placed on each table, allow guests to capture candid moments

Shorter trains and veils (especially the bird cage veil) are popular as are pretty boleros, and shawls. For colder weather, brides choose wraps of faux-fur, velvet, heavy satin, or pashmina. Light weight fabrics, including organza, lace, tulle and chiffon, make perfect wraps for the Spring or Summer bride and reduce sun exposure on bare arms and shoulders.
Pearls, rhinestones, and crystals remain the top jewelry choice for necklaces and earrings. Crystal brooches are also a popular accent for wearing on the dress, in the hair or on the bouquet handle.

Vintage Is In

This upcoming year’s weddings will be more low-key, largely because the economy demands. And because of this, the vintage wedding theme has become popular. Brides are catching vintage fever and falling head over heels for retro looks like Depression era glass and tea-length dresses. As a benefit, vintage looks are not only classic but eco-friendly and inexpensive so brides can channel old-school glamor with a modern twist while keeping budget worries at bay.

A few color combos I love for your 201wedding are:
Teal and Coral
Vintage Purple and Sky Blue
Emerald and Cream
Mauve and Wine
Lilac and Sky Blue
Wine and Blush Pink
Sky Blue and Light Yellow
Mocha and Blush Pink
Warm Gray and any Pink or Coral or Blue or Purple
Olive and Mauve
Mint and Vintage Purple

If you like purples try ~ Lilac, Lavender, Periwinkle, Purple, add Sky Blue as an accent.
If you love bright pink try ~ Hot pink, Fuchsia, Light pink, Red, add Lime or Tangerine as your accent color!
If you adore warm oranges try ~ Tangerine, Coral, Red, add soft Violet, Sky Blue or Fuchsia as your accent color.
If you like burgundy try ~ Dark Green, Golds, Champagne, Creams, add any of these as your accent.
If you love blues try ~ Deep Ocean Blue, Navy Blue, Sky Blue, Periwinkle, add Tangerine, Silver or Sandy Brown as your accent.
Fall colors ~ Burgundy, Dark Green, Navy Blue, Silver, Gold, Creams, Burnt Orange, Taupe, Brown and Plum.
No self-respecting bride will be bareheaded in 2011! The wedding shows have been jam packed with chic headwear. From glittering tiaras to headbands trimmed with extra large flowers in contrasting tones and sweet 50's style half veils, the embellishment and detailing trend is finished off with headwear. Many bridal specialists are happy to sell you just accessories, so you can have fun putting your bridal outfit together from different designers in much the same way you would a new outfit for any occasion.

Stylish Blogger Award

I was given the Stylish Blogger Award by Nala of JewlerybyNala. Thanks, doll ;)

Much like the Sunshine Award, the Stylish Blogger Award is passed on from blogger to blogger. When you receive the award from someone, you're supposed to write seven things about yourself on your blog and pass the award on to 15 other recently discovered blogs you think deserve this award, too. So here are my seven things ...
  • I'm a South American lady who lives in the Sunshine State with my beautiful family of 5.(my favorite number).I actually didn't chose to have a big family,I have 2 teens and a surprise baby. In the photos you can see us all.

  • I always painted,draw and design since I was a very young girl,that is my passion.
  • I believe in God and I love the Best and First Designer and His Creations. 
  • I value when people is kind to everybody and when they smile to anybody,even if they are not friends. There is nothing better than someone with a great sense of humor.
  • I could eat cheese for my 4 meals!
  • I'm healthy but always fighting to loose weight (well,life is not perfect,is it?)
  • Children are my concern. We can not forget others suffering.The American way of life is a privileged life. Sadly,in multitude of places in the world people live in hostile situations,with hunger,famine and sickness,violence and crime.
