5 Wedding Trends You Need to Know About for 2017
Now that 2016 is coming to an end, we want to look at what’s in store for the upcoming year. Specifically, we want to focus on wedding trends for 2017. So if you’re in the process of planning your big day, here are five trends you may want to incorporate into your own wedding:
Although the amount of thought that goes into wedding invitations may come as a surprise to anyone who isn’t currently planning this type of event, those who are in the middle of this process know that invitations can play a central role in setting the tone for this very special day. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by all the different options that are available and want to narrow down your possibilities a bit, you can’t go wrong with focusing on florals. One of the nice things about florals is they work great on other items like signage and gift tags to create a beautiful & cohesive theme.
2. Softer, Brushed Metallics
While gold and shiny silvers can work in certain settings, this year’s trends are pointing in the direction of softer, brushed metallics popping from bright white accents. Not only do these colors provide a lot of flexibility, but they’re especially good choices if you’re planning to incorporate industrial and modern touches into the look for your special day.
In a world where we all spend so much time in front of screens, incorporating paper in ways that go well beyond invitations is a great trend for several reasons. Not only is it’s something that tends to be both eco-friendly and economical, but it can help preserve important moments from the day. If you’re looking for something specific to kick off your paper inspiration, a great starting point is checking out all the amazing floral bouquets being made from paper.
4. Fearless Fashion
Billowing florals and plunging necklines were two of the leading bridal runway trends for the upcoming year. Bows, texture and ruffles also made lots of appearances. So if you’re still looking for the perfect dress, don’t be afraid to amp up the drama with any of these beautiful and fearless features.
5. Delicious Sweets
There’s nothing wrong with traditional wedding white cake. But you also shouldn’t feel locked into that traditional option. Whether it’s a naked cake, metallic-embellished tiers, funfetti or toasted s’mores, you should feel completely free to choose sweet treats that you and your guests will enjoy the most.
