As we continue through 2017, this year brings along with it greater and bolder trends for weddings. Here, we have come up with a list of what’s hot and what’s here to stay for weddings this 2017, be it in the smallest details in the stationery to the attention-grabbing decorations during the reception.
Greens, greens, and more greens.
Being the Pantone Color of the Year, green is a huge color for 2017. Keeping on with the all-natural trend, leafy green patterns and designs are still going be in the spotlight for this year, with even bigger leaves and greener colors. From hand-drawn banana leaves on wedding invitations to huge vine-covered walls for the photo booth backdrop, couples tend to gravitate to the earthy, natural, and refreshing vibe that green tends to have when placed on anything and everything.
Up close and personal.
With each and every wedding, couples are going the extra mile just to ensure that their wedding day is a unique and personal experience, not only for the guests but also for themselves. The bride and groom’s personalities are creatively incorporated into elements throughout the day, making the big day truly their own. Calligraphy has been such a big influence in the current wedding scene that couples even get themselves into classes just to be able to learn and do all of the writing by themselves.
It’s all about the glam and all eyes are on the bride as she makes her way down the aisle. Because it is her big day, brides are simply more on the fashionable side this 2017. As more fashion designers offer bridal gowns all year long, brides-to-be get to choose from a wide variety of dress sizes, shapes, and lengths.
Munchies on the go.
The trend of getting food carts and snack stalls still continues for 2017, as more couples opt for an offbeat reception venue or to go partying on even after the dinner service. With the creativity of food trucks nowadays, it isn’t a wonder why this trend is such a hit at parties. Couples can pick which ones they would like according to their wedding theme, and guests simply love the idea of having an extra option when it comes to their food.
Vibrant blooms all year long.
Stunning floral arrangements and whimsical centerpieces are all the rage this year, as bright flowers take center stage. Soft petal blooms with vibrant colors are the scene-stealers of the season, bringing in a dramatic visual landscape for the guests while still keeping up with the natural theme that is very popular today.
Breath-taking views and unexpected nooks.
For ceremony and reception venues, modern-day couples seem to never run out of unique spaces to choose for their big day. This trend simply intensifies each year, as more and more couples discover a wide variety of places to get married in. Picturesque views, like a white sand beach or a lovely overlooking spot, still serve as an amazing backdrop for the ceremony. While for the reception, using a location close to the couple’s hearts adds a great touch to the day’s significance. Be it in a cozy cafe in the quiet corner of the city or a lovely little library right at the busiest streets in the downtown area, unusual venues are the best especially when the couple gets to claim the space and make it work.
