1. Say Yes to Greenery
Look, we love flowers just as much as the next girl. Peonies, hydrangeas, ranunculus, all to die for. However, there’s something to be said about an all green wedding. Not only is it more cost effective, but it adds a more earthy, simplistic, elegant feel to the ceremony and reception. Consider adding a garland down your aisles or table. Spice it up with some intermittent candles or even some flowers (see above – we couldn’t help ourselves).
2. All White Wedding Trends with a Pop
All white weddings started to become popular in 2016. However, 2017 is bound to take it one step further by adding in a signature color or pattern to liven up the mood. Be ready for more gorgeous and unique mix-matched all-white bridesmaids dresses. Keep an eye out for more lip color, colored florals, greenery (see number 1), marble patterns, and the like. 2017 brides are about to make the classic theme more specialized and individualized and we can’t wait to see what happens!
3. Splitting the Bill
For decades, the bride’s family footing the entire bill has been a tradition. We think the message of 2017 will be equality. No longer will that expense be solely on the bride’s family, the groom’s family will begin chipping into the budget as well!
4. Splashes of Watercolor
Watercolor has become more of a trend lately, outside of just weddings. It’s about time they get more incorporated into these special moments! We are expecting to see this wedding trend on wedding invitations, cakes, menus, and programs.
5. Metallic Vintage Glam
Vintage Glam and metallic touches were both big touches and wedding trends in 2016. In 2017 we see a slight shift happening. Instead of the typical silvers and golds, they’re being replaced by rose golds, champagnes, and bronzes that will be understated and glamorous additions to the weddings.
