There are some overarching themes for 2017. Greenery is big, as is minimalism. Paring back the wedding to what matters, where suppliers are sourced, everything.Brides are wearing whatever the hell they want, grooms are getting more involved and weddings are becoming less formal – here is where we have seen the rise of the colour green!
The greenery trend can start and stop with using some more foliage in your day. Whether its some ferns in your bouquet, or palm leaves around the ceremony. Adding plants as they are is definitely the easiest way to get the effect. You can even start in advance by shopping for plants yourself, ikea do such a great range at the moment. You just have to be able to keep them alive till the wedding. If you are not confident, just leave it all to the florist.
And if you are feeling it, a green eye?! Beauty for 2017 has taken a little bit of a shake up, there will be more on this in tomorrow’s post.
Big for 2017, lots of foliage. Hanging floral installations, the use of plants every where and using greenery for table names, on the cake, chair backs, anywhere you can imagine!
Stationery is simple, green and clean. Very botanical with emphasis on watercolour, calligraphy and strong clear typography. This leads us quite nicely on to the next trend…minimalism.
The minimalist trend can run as simply as keeping it simple, or as deeply as paring the whole wedding back to what matters. This is why eloping is also going to become a lot more popular in 2017-2018. The minimalist trend ties in quite nicely to Greenery from the clean lines of simple stationery and ceremony arches, to single stems on tables.
The decor brushes a little into another trend for 2017. Simple, almost monochromatic decor of elegant lanterns, candles and a little rustic with natural elements. This also lends itself well to incorporate another trend of 2017 which is a nude palette. Helping blush pinks, taupes etc accent the greenery or monochromatic tones.
Pretty typography, lots of random looking numbers that do actually make sense, and simple colour palettes.
