Our Top 10 Wedding Trends for 2017 have recently been published in the Wedding Inspirations 2017 magazine in Rutland, Stamford and Market Harborough Living publications which we are delighted about! I hope you grabbed yourself a copy, but if not don't fear as we're sharing them with you today.
2017 is already proving to be an exciting year for Wedding Trends full of new & unique ideas we haven’t seen before. If you’re in need of some inspiration to ensure you have the Wedding of the Year then read on.
Make awkward silences and introductions a thing of the past with interactive games for all your guests to enjoy. We’re seeing portrait artists, teamed garden games, stilt walkers & treasure hunts for the little ones!
2. Street food & stations
Couples are moving away from the traditional sit-down meals by creating a festival atmosphere for all to enjoy. Why not give your guests a choice with a Mediterranean grazing table, pizza bar or a taco stand? Add a donut wall or dessert stations to keep your guest fuelled to party.
3. The Geode
We love this one and feel the more Geode’s the better! This Volcanic rock trend began in Australia with the striking Geode Wedding Cake, but we see the Geode flooding Weddings in 2017. Add colourful Geode centerpieces, personalised place settings and favours or Geode jewellery to be hot on trend.
4. Wedding Planner vs Social Media
With a huge percentage of Brides pinning their dream Weddings online, we see an increase in the need to draft in Wedding Planning assistance to ensure those visions and dreams come to life. Engaged couples are busier than ever and are appreciating the time and cost saving implications of hiring a professional to turn those pins & Instagram posts into reality.
5. First Looks & Reveals
Derived from the first touch, first looks & reveals are set to be popular in 2017 for both couples and with the Father of the Bride. With other trends breaking tradition you can truly personalise the big reveal & get that moment captured on camera too. This one is fun, romantic and calms the nerves!
6. Charity over Tradition
With Kate & Will asking for charity donations instead of gifts at their Wedding we knew this trend would be popular. More couples are steering away from the gift list and asking for a charitable donation to their favourite charity. We love this selfless act and are glad it’s here for 2017.
7. Trees & Foliage
The interest in trees, greenery & garlands to decorate is rife & it’s showing no signs of slowing down. In 2017 it’s the more impactful the better, with weeping willows, draping ferns & elegant birches transforming the Wedding reception into a whimsical playground.
8. Immersive Experiences
Make your Wedding stand out by adding more creative elements. We’re seeing elaborate themes and unconventional venues by couples not afraid to create a rich experience for their guests. Think large bands, modern garden parties & glamorous performances.
9. Destination Weddings
This year will see a huge increase in the popularity of Destination Weddings, with couples transforming their Wedding into a luxury, once in a lifetime holiday. Inviting their nearest & dearest and creating full itineraries for all to enjoy, the focus here is on quality time together Internationally. Amulet Weddings & Events tailor unique Destination Weddings across Europe.
10. Exciting Colours
The brighter the better if you want to stand out as a trendsetter in 2017! We see couples embracing moody and rich colour palettes complimented by an abundance of metallic. Copper will still be huge this year, with metallic cutlery & coloured glassware really paving the way.
We'd love to know which trends you're a fan of, so please do let us know! For further details on how to create your ideal Wedding contact Nadia at Amulet Weddings & Events for a free consultation.
