With more and more couples getting creative with their wedding themes, décor and dining, it is getting harder and harder to create a show-stopping wedding style that will make guests say ahhh. With this in mind, let us look at a few of the latest trends that will ensure you stand out from the crowd and the trends that are so 2017.
Wow your guests and get creative with your wedding catering. Last year it was all about food trucks filled with sweet and savoury crepes and dessert tables topped with delicious delights but the latest wave of wedding trends is bound to take your food offerings up a notch. The food truck trend is still going strong but this year, the focus is on fine food rather than fast food. Wave goodbye to pizzas and prosecco and say hello to champagne and oyster bars, why not surprise your guests with a gin garden?
Elaborate floral displays were one of the biggest wedding trends of the year just gone and this year flowers will play an equally important role in styling your venue. For flowers that make an instant impact, hanging floral centrepieces tick every box. Suspended florals have been creeping into our Pinterest boards and this year we will be seeing them a lot more. Rather than the traditional oversized vases and flower garlands for the top table, suspend the arrangements from the ceiling and add drama to your room.
Marble has always had a strong presence on Pinterest due to its photogenic qualities but this year we will see it used primarily in wedding décor. Last year was all about the rose gold accents but this year we will see the addition of marble when styling invitations and stationery, table décor and even wedding cakes. If you like the pretty, romantic look, we are sure that marble will be right up your street.
Contemporary Wedding Cakes
2017 was the year of the naked cake that complemented weddings of a rustic nature but this year, wedding cakes are more luxurious and contemporary than ever before updating the traditional iced finish with luxe elements. We are seeing an influx of metallic, marble and floral designs with some cakes mixing and matching all three elements to create a magical finished look.
Greenery is pantone’s colour of the year so it is no surprise that it is making a big impression on the wedding industry. In 2017, we will see a focus on lush greenery when it comes to wedding florals, table décor and stationery. With over 18, 000 pins, there is plenty of inspiration for incorporating greenery into your wedding décor.
Wedding Gift List Boards
Alternative gift lists were starting to make an appearance in 2016 and they do not show any signs of disappearing. In 2017, more and more couples are tailoring their gift lists to complement their hopes and dreams and the idea is that anything goes. There is now more choice than ever when it comes to wedding gift lists and more and more people are taking to Pinterest to create dream honeymoon boards. Rather than having your guests contribute to a gift list at one particular store, couples can now create a wedding list to spend in multiple places, from department stores to honeymoon specialists. This allows newlyweds to get the best of both worlds using half the contributions for their dream honeymoon and half to buy the things they need for the home.
These are just a few of the emerging wedding trends that are popping up on Pinterest. Which of these trends will be inspiring your special day?
