22017 Bridal Gown Trends

Layers of lace, British embroidery, bohemian flowers … The dresses of the season take on bohemian and vintage airs, as if imbued by a nostalgic desire for Hamiltonian romanticism, thus evoking young brides surrounded by fresh new blooms.

On the other hand, off-the-shoulder wedding dresses, ruffled skirts, champagne, lilac and blush wedding dresses, and plunging necklines dominated the bridal trends on the 2017 runways.

Therefore in 2017, brides can choose what suits them best. What kind of bride are you? Romantic or avant-garde?

5Maid of Honor’s Dresses Will Stand Out On 2017 Weddings

This year we saw a big change on the traditional bridesmaid dress with the mismatched look. In 2017 we will see the MOH’s dress differ entirely from the rest of the ladies! Outdoor and daytime weddings now demand cotton fabrics with gingham or floral prints for a romantic look and luxurious brocades and lots of shine will accompany a glam or evening wedding on the MOH’s dress.

6Goodbye Flowers! Hello Minimalistic Greenery!

A welcomed addition to weddings since foliage is way cheaper than flowers (especially if they are not in season) But this doesn’t mean that flowers disappear altogether from weddings, they just add a little touch of color onto the abundant greenery decor. Take advantage of this trend by leveraging ecological, French or Cuban weddings!! 🙂

8Breakfast Weddings: The Yummiest Of Them All!

It’s your wedding and if your favorite meal of the day is breakfast, go ahead and include it on your menu! We are seeing more and more couples incorporating donut cakes, piles of brownies, crepes and towers of macarons instead of the traditional wedding cake on today’s receptions. For those couples who plan on a courthouse wedding and get married early in the day, the 2017 trend of the brunch wedding is perfect. Economical, fun and intimate, the brunch wedding is a delicious (and budget-friendly) way to celebrate your love. Check it out!

92017 Wedding Color Trends: Love The New Metallic Accents!

Metallics are not new but what changed this year is the metallic hue. Metallics no longer have the brightness of pure gold, they trend now is copper, pewter, brass and rose gold. Perfect for vintage and French-themed weddings. Although Pantone announces its color of the year in the month of December, there are many that forecast green Kale will be the chosen one. It actually makes a lot of sense since it has already been incorporated on many designer collections and is a perfect match with the themes on trend for 2017!

10Sayonara Social Media: The birth Of Unplugged Weddings

A little social media is not bad but a wedding’s intimate moments are meant for the couple, their family and friends. Needless to say, a social media invasion means that on every photo that your photographer takes there will be cell phones instead of your guests’ faces! And for couples who prefer social sharing during the reception but not at the religious ceremony, check out these sweet and printable Unplugged wedding signs. 😉
