2017 Wedding Trends
In the world of wedding trends, things are constantly changing, evolving and starting anew. Want to be on the cutting edge with you nuptials? Here is what will be hot and trendy in 2017.
Last year we saw cool, softer colors, but 2017 is gearing up to be bold and bright by incorporating red, yellow, and orange into bouquets and centerpieces. This adds pop without overdoing the decor. Metallic accents will be a huge trend this year featured prominently as an accent shade.
Artisanal invites will be all the rage – think less paper and ink, more wood, metal, and fabric. More and more couples will look to set the tone of their wedding via this first introduction and skipping traditional invites. Not only are these invites completely unique to the couple, but they lay the groundwork for what’s to come on the big day.
No more traditional sit-down dinners! It's family style for a more relaxed, personal, and intimate wedding. Long tables bring back memories of the days when that style of dining was a typical Saturday night. Another hot trend is cocktail-style receptions. This gives more time to the reception, dancing, and enjoying your guests.
Three words: street food trucks! Trendy, popular and loved by all. Think miniature midnight snacks, such as posh fish and chips, miniature burgers, and crepes - and those are just a few of the options! Or ask your cater to serve midnight snacks, such as miniature pizzas and bagels. After all, no one wants to go home feeling hungry.
Dramatic wedding cakes will be so 2016, with couples opting instead for tiered displays of delectable donuts, whimsical cupcakes, or scrumptious macaroons. Choose one tasty treat or offer guests a multitude of options with a few mouthwatering sweets to choose from. Forgoing the tedious multi-tiered cake is a great way to save a few bucks and it’ll give you a chance to jump on board the latest dessert craze.
No more candles or DIY favors guests leave behind. Give something your guests appreciate or want to take home! Give them mini potted plants that will bring back memories of your wedding when they flower each year
