New year means new trends! As you may have seen from your Facebook and Instgram feeds, engagements have been in full swing, which means MORE WEDDINGS! YAY! So, to kickstart your planning process, here are some of OUR 2017 wedding trends to get your creative juices flowing! The photos below were some of our gorgeous 2016 weddings that debuted these trends last year, but you better believe these ideas will be making a bigger appearance in 2017! Happy Planning, Pinning and Paroozing!!!
Drop dead gorgeous florals are pretty much our favorite. The tight bouquets and centerpieces are FAB, but making their way onto the scene are dramatic textured filler greens. They add so much body and dimension to any floral design. It's organic and can really fill up a space. We APPROVE!

Baby, Get Your Shine On
Copper, Gold, Silver, and Rose Gold…need we say more? These dazzlers add the pop of sparkle and shine you’re looking for in any color scheme. Whether it’s in the table settings or your cake design, metallics add so much pizzazz and personality to any room. Let's just say, we don’t see this trend going away anytime soon!

Ahhhhh….velvet. Just the word itself sounds luxurious and romantic. Velvet accents are just the ticket for a more dramatic feel. They’re making their debut in lounge furnishings, bouquet ribbons, accent décor, and even your apparel! Just check out this amazing blue velvet suite our groom wore on his big day! AMAZING!

Color Me Bridal
Brides are always looking for new ways to be different and unique on their wedding day, and what better way to be different than in the color of your gown? Colors such like blush and pink are showing up on bridal racks everywhere, but these days, those pinks are taking a back seat and the bold personality tones are coming in! Blues, Reds, Peaches (pictured below from Elle Bridal Boutique) and even BLACK, for those unique and sassy brides! It's definitely a show stopper statement!

All of Life's Jewels
Who doesn’t love jewels? Rubies, Emeralds, Diamonds, Sapphires; we want them all! You’re not just seeing these “gems” on rings and jewelry anymore. Floral designers, décor companies, and linen vendors are all jumping on the band wagon and so are we! SO GLAM!

We Mix, and Then We Match
From the wise words of Dr. Suess, “Why fit it when you were born to stand out.” The cookie cutter look is great, but it's all about standing out among the crowd! Mixed matched plates, centerpieces, vases, candles, glassware, guest chairs, you name it; it’s eye catching and DIFFERENT. Yes, different. It’s hard for some, but once you take that leap of imperfect perfection, you wont want to go back!

Old Time Classics
What’s old is now NEW! Signature cocktails are such a cute way to personalize your big day. It started with those sweet and fruity drinks you found on Pinterest for your bartender to create. But what about those old classics? The vesty Moscow Mule, or the pungent Old Fashions are all bringing in the blast from the past we've been looking for. It’s classy, original and everyone loves those never fail boozy flavors.

You're Making Me Blush
Why ruin a good thing? The blush palate will forever be the number one color scheme at any wedding, and for good reason. It's STUNNING! This is one of our forever trends, because why get rid of a trend that keeps on trending?

We LOVE dusty tones! Dusty blue, grey, purple, and even those dusty burnt oranges; we can’t get enough. It’s elegant and offers a neutral palate for those brides striving for the dramatic look, but also searching for a softer element. How gorg are these dusty blue dresses! SWOON!

Daddy's Little Girl
We've all seen the first look photos between bride and groom, but what about a first look with the man that loved her first? A first look between father and daughter is one of the sweetest moments and we love when brides ask us to incorporate this in their wedding day timeline.

We love linens! It really makes or breaks a reception space, and specialty linens are our favorite!! Yes, they're on the more expensive side, but even just one for your sweetheart table, or for your cake table makes it so special, and not to mention GORGEOUS! Just look at this sweetheart table stunner from Luxe Linen. Can you say, OBSESSED!

Food on Wheels
Last, but certainly not least, FOOD TRUCKS! Below is a little #TBT to the lovely owner of Pure Lavish Events, Carrie and her husband Justin's wedding day. I don't want to say they started this trend before it was cool, but they totally did! Burgers, Tacos, Cookies, and Ice Cream trucks are all the rage right now! I mean, seriously! Who wouldn't want a juicy cheeseburger or an ice cream sandwich as their wedding day grub? Not to mention, it makes for the most adorable photo op!
