2017 is here and for anyone who is newly engaged or planning their wedding, you need to know the latest trends in weddings for the New Year.
Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017 is “Greenery”, which is a soft, pretty shade of green. Green is not necessarily the color you initially think of for a wedding color scheme, but it can be so inviting and revitalizing. Green is a color of nature and symbolizes harmony, freshness and fertility. Whether you’re planning a more natural, rustic wedding or something a bit more classic, green is the perfect color for you. You can add this color in your decor, your bouquet or centerpiece florals and even favors. Don’t be afraid of this color as it really does work. Sprinkle it here and there and spread it around and throughout your wedding. You’ll be happily surprised at how impactful this color can be.
Sophistication and romance is high on our list for the coming year. Whether you’re planning a Bohemian, flowy, romantic wedding or you’re looking for polished sophistication, always bring it together with a beautiful balance of colors, prints, metals and wood. Your linens are a great base to start and build from.
Speaking of linens lush and opulent linens will be everywhere. Whether it’s an exquisite shade of gold (solid gold, rose gold), soft champagne, blush or taupe, all are on trend. Metallics are still very popular and in high demand. Don’t be afraid to mix your metals. It can be fun, exciting and oh so very glamorous! Whether it’s gold, silver, bronze or copper, they all work together. We’ve had the pleasure of working with this exact combination of metals and you’d be amazed at how beautiful it all works together.

Vintage and lace dresses are making a huge come back. Remember what was old, is now new again. It’s the same in the bridal world. Do you have a vintage dress your mom wore for her wedding? Re-envision it as your dress. Be sure you find an experienced seamstress and let her work her magic! Looking for that “vintage look” or something with lace, check out your local bridal shops. The service and expertise of the staff at your bridal shop will help you find that perfect dress you’ve always dreamed of.
If vintage and lace dresses are not your style, not to fear, dramatic and longer gowns are very popular. Ball gowns are dramatic and full for you to make your entrance just as grand as you’ve always dreamed of. And let’s not forget about the details on your dress. It’s all about the details! So don’t overlook the lace, detailed beading, pearls and overlay. Not just on your dress, but in your hair and all your accessories.
Flowy, long, simple hair is still the way to go ladies. Soft up-dos with flowy hair resting on your neck and shoulders will speak volumes with any romantic, stylish wedding. Whether your planning a rustic, natural wedding or an over the top event, soft up-dos are very popular this season. It leaves an effortless look for you to love and looks fabulous in your photos.
Don’t forget about your make-up. Make up will fluctuate between soft pastels and neutrals, as well as the “Vintage Hollywood” look, with black eyeliner and dramatic red lips. What better way to say “I’m the bride” than with a bold and beautiful red lip?
Whether you’re just starting to plan your wedding or you’ve been planning for awhile, keeping up on the newest trends is a great way to gather inspiration!
