5 Hottest Trends for 2017
Recent years have seen brides rush to recreate their Pinterest board wedding. But as we greet 2017, it’s clear brides and grooms are much more interested in going down the aisle their own way.
Keeping it Personal
Personalisation has always played a key part in stationery and this year is no exception. Couples are looking for personalised drawings of their venue, themselves, beautiful flowing initials and intricate finishing touches that showcase them and add an element of intrigue and excitement to their day.
Metallics for 2017 are surprisingly versatile, depending on how you use them throughout your celebration. They can be elegant, quirky, delicate or even very natural. Think glitzy golds warming up the ambience of the event, copper lanterns at an outdoor reception or on a rustic table setting. No matter the venue or the theme, designers across the country say hues of warm gold will show up on everything from invitations to table linens. Even the food and drink get in on the trend this coming year, with shiny icings on desserts, cakes and golden-hued cocktails. One metallic however, that is on it’s way out, is silver.
The key to setting a romantic mood? Every couple wants to create a more romantic, ambient and intimate environment. Wedding lighting is the best and simplest way to establish this. Event designers say they’re using more industrial pendant lights with vintage bare bulbs, chandeliers (both vintage and modern) and candelabras to cast a soft glow.
More couples are requesting a “wild” look, what they are after are freshly picked blooms. Wild flowers, unstructured bouquets, dried flowers, heather, ivy vines, and wildflower hand-tied posies – all of these and more can be found at Bloom Magic. Loose, wild displays inside receptions and ceremonies will continue to give that “bring nature inside” look, expanding through to the tables and more in keeping with the wild natural bouquets that we’ve already seen this year.
Aerial photography is no longer just for the elite – drones can capture your wedding in a spectacular style never previously possible. The film and photography world is wild with excitement about drone photo and video capabilities. If you are getting married in an outdoor setting or a unique location, a drone can capture the sweeping vista and truly eternalise the entire day.
