Honeysuckle was named the wedding color of 2011.

With the holidays over and 2010 now a memory, brides-to-be are looking ahead to what’s hot and new for 2011 wedding trends. From the ceremony to reception to décor and entertainment, there are many ways to personalize these trends to fit your wedding.

Murrieta's Well is just one of many beautiful outdoor venues in Tri-Valley.

Outdoor ceremony and reception venues are a big trend of the new year. Tri-Valley is home to a number of beautiful winery venues with views of the sprawling vineyards and rolling hills. Just a few examples include Murrieta’s Well, Garre Winery, Concannon Vineyard and Wente Vineyards.

Selecting wedding colors is often a first step in deciding a decorative theme. Honeysuckle has been named the wedding color of 2011. The vibrant hue is eye-catching and is a great choice for couples looking to make a bold statement with décor elements.

The popularity of food trucks has even hit the wedding day! This is a perfect option for the cocktail hour.

Catering and food options are evolving in 2011, as well. Trends in wedding dining mirror everyday culinary trends. Think small bites and food trucks! Tapas-style and buffets are hot this year, allowing for a more casual and informal affair. If you’re planning a very relaxed event, consider a trendy food truck.

Vintage elements like passed down family jewelry, photo booths, favors from classic brands and relaxed poses for photography create a romantic nostalgic vibe will give your wedding a timeless style.

Whatever your theme, colors or creative elements, the most important thing is to make it unique and make it your own. All the 2011 trends can be adapted to fit your style and budget. If you’re ready to get started, be sure to look into our complimentary planning assistance.
