Online wedding resource The Knot ( recently released its list of hot wedding trends to watch for in 2007. Among them:

• Orange: With hues ranging from creamy peaches to mod citrus and deep tangerines to burth siennas. Look for oranges paired with browns, lime and sage greens, sky blues, lemony yellows and even with jewel tones like red and gold.

• Trumpet skirt: The trumpet gown is the silhouette of the moment. Look for it with dramatic fabrics and details like flowers and sexy sleeves.

• Italy: Couples are following Tom and Kate's lead on the Italian destination weddings.

• Blogs: Wedding Web sites are all the rage. Look for them to grow in sophistication with daily blogs, digital music, streaming video and even live Web casts.

• Cocktail hour: Pre-reception parties complete with awe-inspiring flowers, special entertainment and fancy munchies are taking center stage.

• Dessert buffet: The cake's still there, but more couples are opting for what's traditionally known as the Viennese table.

• Adventure honeymoons: Hot for 2007: trips to the Seven Wonders of the world from the Great Wall of China to the great pyramids of Egypt.
