Wedding Trends of 2017

 

We are counting down the days to the start of the 2017 wedding season! Have you begun designing your big day? We want to help jump start your planning process with our top 4 picks of 2017 wedding trends. 


Want to impress your guests? Dazzle them with something extra in the sky! Aerial decor is one of the newest and biggest trends of 2017. Couples are adding this extra detail to really top off (pun intended!) their big day's design.  So whether you want a floral chandelier or have edison bulbs hanging over your reception tables, there is an aerial concept for every type of style.  


Yay for metallics! We love that this trend shines on in 2017! Metallic shades of copper, rose gold and pewter continue to be mixed into wedding designs. As with most design elements, you need to find a balance so that your full concept is at it's best. We like a design that mixes metallic accents with softer color palettes, like blush tones and ivory. 

 


Who doesn't love flowers! Floral design has become one of the more important details of wedding design and we are loving the trend. Long gone are the days where roses took center stage! Think soft-petal blooms! Peonies, dahlias, Japanese ranunculus are in high demand not just for the bridal party flowers but statement pieces on your bar, incorporated into your ceremony and anywhere you need that extra wow factor. These beautiful blooms add romance to your big day's style. 


For years brides were sticking with soft palettes of blushes, creams and taupes. Now we are moving into the trend of color; bright, bold and exciting color. Wedding design is heading to make strong statements and bride's first entry into big design is through the use of color. Its a great way to add warmth to a large space or showcase your personal style on your wedding day. 

2017 Bridal Trends

The 2017 runways have spoken! We wanted to share with you our top picks for trends from the runway that you can incorporate into your wedding day style and beyond!


Depending on your style, a veil might not be for you. A great alternative to help create an ethereal look is to wear a bridal cape or capelet! The cape has been trending for a few years and we think its a trend that is not going away anytime soon. Incorporating a cape into your big day's attire is a great way to give a way to switch up your dress; where the cape for your ceremony and then take it off for the dance party reception!

Cape styles are versatile, so there is a cape for every season and every dress style. Time to glam it up!

Who doesn't want their wedding day to be dripping in flowers! So why not have botanical design elements incorporated into your dress. Leaves and blooms and vines, on my! We love this trend for the bride that wants her day's look to feel romantic but have a modern flare.

The metallic trend has been one of our favorites for awhile and from the looks of the 2017 runways it continues to be everyone's favorite. Who doesn't want a little extra sparkle on their big day! From gold to silver to champagne, there is a metallic to fit every style, every bride and every wedding day's design.

Looking for a fun style? Ruffles bring that unexpected surprise to a dress design. You can go full ruffle for dramatic effect, or have a little ruffle add flare to your style. Ruffles are a great way to add dimension to your hips (if you need it!). We love ruffles for brides who want to add a sense of whimsical and fun to their big day's style.
