The wedding invitation is the first glimpse your guests will have of your wedding day. Because the design and color used on your invitations will set the mood for your special day, you may be curious as to what the top trends are for 2009 and 2010. The color purple has never seemed as chic as it is now and this trend is expected to continue into 2010. From eggplant to violet to lavender, all shades of purple will catch the attention of your wedding invitation recipients. Invoking feelings of romance and magic, purples pair well with orange, green, and blue accents. Orange has proven to be another smart color choice for wedding stationery. The fun nature of orange and all of it various hues convey a feeling of happiness, in spite of the economic news we've had to endure. Orange can range from terra cotta, salmon, peach and apricot. Warm colors such as hot pink, red, purple, blue, green and brown all compliment orange and prove this color is going to be around for some time to come. Grey is the new black for 2009 and 2010. This versatile and neutral color in all of its various shades is upscale and uplifting.
