Wedding Trends for 2017

5 December 2016

As we near the end of another year and newly engaged couples start to think about their wedding day planning for 2017, they will be checking what the latest wedding trends are. Themes vary from year to year and whether you decide to be ‘on trend’ with your nuptials or buck trend and go your own wedding path, a little bit of wedding inspiration never did anyone any harm!

  1. Vintage – think lace bridesmaid gowns, pastel hues and vintage groomsmen suits. All things vintage is still very on trend and becoming increasingly popular at hipster wedding celebrations. What about arriving in a kombi van or having a 50’s blues band play whilst greet your reception guests.
  2. Stay Connected – an increasingly popular trend for couples it to take half an hour out of the day, after dinner and before the dancefloor sets alight, to find a quiet space and connect Discuss your day, enjoy the silence, go for a little walk but ensure you really connect with your new husband/ wife, as after all it is a day all about you two!
  3. Ditch the receiving line – the age-old tradition of gathering the bridal party together and the wedding guests making their way kissing and hugging along the receiving line is out. We recommend you enjoy mingling with your guests in your own time throughout the reception and enjoy spending time with those who you are particularly close to.
  4. Tropical – well we can certainly do tropical here in the Whitsundays! Think palm fronds for centre pieces and floral headbands for the bridesmaid with gerberas and frangipanis. Why not have a tropical desert table laden with fruits and tropical inspired sweet treats or implement a tropical dress code with slacks and tropical shirts for the groomsmen?
  5. Greenery – ditch the flowers and use the foliage. The latest wedding trend is to go back to the earth and utilize branches, leaves and foliage to adorn your wedding reception venue, incorporate into your bridal bouquet or think of something quirky and leafy for your table name place cards.

Whatever trend you choose to incorporate into your wedding celebrations, stay true to who you are and make the trend your own. Remember, it is all about you!

Happy trending.
