Mitchell Hall Wedding Reception

We had a wonderful summer of weddings here at Denver Botanic Gardens. I am really looking forward to seeing some of the latest trends for weddings and receptions for 2011.

I’ve seen quite a few weddings now, and I think it's fair to say we should all be on the same page as far as what's hot and what's not for weddings in 2011.

  • Invitations
    Going green with soy ink and recycled paper, and online 'save the date' with your engagement photo
    Not: Boring white invitations
  • The Colors
    Red, yellow, teal and classic black and white
    Not: Any color palette with brown
  • Dinners & Receptions
    Sit down reception dinners, family style. Or provide more substantial hors d’oeuvres to pass around
    Not: Buffet lines and light hors d’oeuvres stations
  • Wedding Cake
    Cupcakes and candy stations
    Not: Classic three-tiered cakes

By no means do your choices have reflect all the latest trends, but it’s nice to mix old traditions with new ones!
