I do not claim to be very on-trend by any stretch... I am just too lazy and frankly too thrifty to want to keep up with the ever-changing trends. However, trends fascinate me. Especially now that I am working with brides who are always very interested in the latest and greatest trends. Have you seen a bridal magazine lately. (OK beware, I am about to date myself...) The colors are so very interesting... really they bring me back to the 80's! (Though some say they are 60's colors... I wouldn't know...?) Bright Orange, Lime Green, Hot Pink, Deep Purple... and the list goes on. Oh, did I mention all of these colors can often be used in conjunction? At first I wasn't sure about the trends, but they have grown on me. Use the right fabrics with these colors and anything is possible.
What amazes... truly stuns me, is that I will often get multiple requests for the same color palette in the same few days. I cannot tell you how many times this has happened. It is like there is a new trend report every few days and all of the sudden every bride wants that to be her color palette. It does make it nice when selecting fabrics as I can gently persuade brides to use similar fabrics and it helps keep my costs down.
One of my recent favorite trends is gray and yellow. Actually I cannot stop getting orders for this color palette. If I were getting married again I would use these colors.
