Wedding Trends to look for in 2017 ..... and some you won't see

Planning a 2017 wedding? Take a look at these 'on the rise' wedding trends....


Greenery has been a huge trend that will continue into 2017, especially with Pantone's release of it's Color of the Year, Greenery! From lush loose florals, long garlands and backdrop walls, expect to see it used in new creative ways. 



Metallics. Rose Gold has been a big trend recently and while I think it will definitely stay on trend, expect more! Using metallics is a great way to give your wedding a more formal vibe while not going over the top. 


COLOR! While neutral color palettes have made a huge mark in wedding design from bridesmaids dresses to florals, I anticipate some bold colors coming into action this year in all forms. Bridesmaids dresses, flowers and accent colors for decor. Dare I say we may even see wedding dresses flaunting more color than in previous years....? 


Bye bye bouquet and garter toss! I've seen many couples opt out of the traditional garter toss and am even seeing more and more brides not throwing their bouquet! This traditional element is well on its way out.


Late night snacks will continue to be a huge bonus to weddings in 2017. What a great surprise for guests hours into drinking and dancing the night away!


Favors. Rarely do I see guests going home with favors anymore. Many a time, couples send money on things that just don't get used or often times even picked up at the end of the night, resulting in a waste of funds after already treating their guests to a great meal, wonderful entertainment and many an adult beverage. Some favors I think are fun and appreciated:

  personalized koozies will continue to decorate bars, keep drinks cold and hands warm 

late night snacks! These are essentially favors in themselves

edible favors such as cookies to go are a great way to say thank you to your guests while also providing them with a snack for their way home, yes please.  Consider getting them personalized to add another fun detail to your wedding day.
