It feels like just yesterday we were welcoming 2016 with opening arms. And yet, here we are, sending it off, another year in the books, as we get ready to embrace 2017. A new year comes with new trends, and here at Little Bird Wedding & Event Co. we have compiled a list with some of the trends for this upcoming year.
We have all seen them - hanging romantically down from head tables, or filling chandeliers throughout a venue. Greenery is nothing new at weddings; however, it has taken over many floral decisions as of late, and is used to set the mood of the venue - at the ceremony, the reception, and even in bouquets. For those Bohemian loving brides out there, flower halos will once again be a hit this year. The more green, the better! Whether you mix the cascading greenery with pops of colour, or keep it simple with white tones, this trend is one of the most beautiful things we have ever seen. We hope this one stays around for years to come! Pantone just announced "Greenery" as the official colour of 2017 - a symbol of New Beginnings, and what better way to showcase the start of your life with your significant other than by using this wonderful colour!
This is a trend we are head over heels for! Who doesn’t look a little luxe and glitter on their special day?! Straying away from gold and silver, copper offers an industrial-looking twist. It looks lovely with romantic greenery and lively florals, but can also be used in a more industrial fashion. Hints of copper can be used throughout your big day, from centerpieces, to matching chargers at each place setting, to wedding cake details or welcome signs, this trend can really be a show-stopper! Another way to incorporate copper throughout your entire wedding is to include a copper-foil accent on your invitations. No matter where you use it, copper will be a gorgeous new accent to your Big Day!
A Modern Twist
Crisp whites on your big day make for some of the most romantic and stunning decorating ideas. So simple, and yet so modern. White is not reserved for just the bride anymore! It is becoming increasingly popular used on tablescapes, as a bridesmaid dress colour, and in every detail in between. We love seeing all-white wedding parties - it looks so stylish and sleek, and makes for incredible photos. White floral arrangements and all-white wedding cakes are all the rage. Using all-white-everything as a theme, many brides are also choosing to pair an all-white setting, with a stunning coloured gown. Blush and even purple hues are being shown more frequently in wedding dress options.
Mixing and Matching
For those couples who are looking to shake up tradition, you will be sure to see a lot more mixing and matching throughout wedding venues in the next year. Pair a rustic venue, with modern chairs and linens creates a unique experience for your guests. Having mismatched plates can be a conversation-starter, and make for a more personalized experience - plus, they make for great photos! Who says you have to stick to one style? There are two of you, and let that be all the more reason to showcase each of your styles.
Ditching the Head Table
Sweetheart tables are going to be seen a lot again this year. Not only is it the perfect chance for you and your new wife or hubby to share a few stolen moments alone, but it also allows your wedding party a chance to sit with their significant others. These tables romantic and can be decorated in so many creative ways, there is surely one you will love! Spending that special meal alone, looking out over a room filled with all your loved ones, is a wonderful memory in itself.
We are so excited to see all these wedding trends come to life over the next year! Cheers to 2017!
