Elegant, Sophisticated Weddings and Outdoor Weddings are 2011 Trends

January is the month that many engaged couples call to talk about their ideal wedding reception and find out what choices their budgets will allow. It’s an exciting time for us because it’s a very happy time. We love hearing what our couples are imagining and letting them know about the flexibility we offer and the choices they have.

Since January is wedding planning month, we thought we’d give you a quick report on what January 2011 trends are getting posted on the Internet.

Compare these two different January 2011 reports on 2011 Wedding Trends. (We added the links to show examples of each of the trends.)

What did these two reports have in common?
