You know what we love even more than connecting couples with local wedding vendors? Checking out the latest wedding trends that have given the previous year a run for its money. These are some of our favourite wedding ideas in 2017 we’ve seen (so far).
If you’re looking for unique wedding cake ideas, consider taking it back to the 90s with watercolour!
As delicious as the dessert is, when you opt for a hand painted watercolour wedding cake, don’t be surprised when you feel a wave of guilt after you and your partner cut into it. They’re just too gorgeous!
When it’s natural wedding ideas you’re after, greenery is the way to go
Brides and grooms are introducing organics & foliage into their wedding décor providing a “fresh” perspective to their overall theme. From hanging up garland greenery to searching for unique types of green foliage for wedding bouquets, your big day will be nothing short of beautiful with pretty leaves found in every direction.
Off-The-Shoulder Bridal Gowns
“Selecting a wedding dress is more than just a fitting… it’s a process – a memory in the making.” – Olivelli Cape Town
While every bride’s wedding dress choice is a personal decision, more and more women are being drawn towards off-the-shoulder bridal gowns, a big wedding trend in 2017. The look is elegant, timeless, and even a little sexy. Try it and you might just love it.
A surprising colour scheme for wedding décor, this trend actually works beautifully to create an interesting theme no matter what the season.
We’ve seen copper design details on everything from wedding toppers to bridal gowns. Try incorporating a copper colour scheme by spraying eucalyptus for a pretty centerpiece option, creating copper text on your wedding invitations, menu sheet, and seating charts, and using copper flower vases and candle holders.
Unique Wedding Favours
Tip: Research wedding favour do’s and don’ts before deciding on what small gifts to hand out on your big day
Try to choose something meaningful that fits into your wedding theme.
We love these wedding favour ideas we’ve seen all over the internet:
Personalized sparklers, tiny herb plants, breath mints that coordinate with wedding colours, and popcorn in mason jars.
Fun Food Stations
Get funky with creative food stations for the cocktail hour or the reception
For a guest, one of the best parts about the wedding is the food option. Will it be buffet, family style or plated? This is important! But what about giving the guests some tasty food fun by introducing food stations. Popular food station trends include a build your own taco bar, a candy station, a pretty dessert table, and a s’mores bar. Your guests will love it!
Something old, something new, something borrowed – a wedding day tradition that’s making a serious comeback.
Brides are bringing back this beloved wedding day tradition, especially where “something old” is concerned. From lace wedding dresses from your mother or grandmother’s original dress to wedding day photos from previous generations for centerpieces and flower bouquets, the options are endless and we for one are into it.
