Favorite Trends from 2017

Greenery
Inspired by Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year, greenery took the center stage at weddings from table rubbers to ceiling installations and beyond.

Soft Colors
While bold colors had their moment, we saw an increase in soft color palettes incorporating a mix of light blues, soft pinks and neutrals with accents of rich colors.

Yard Games
Why not add a little extra fun to your big day? We loved seeing an increase in yard games from corn hole to oversized Jenga!

Non-White Gowns
With every year, we see more and more wedding gowns in varying shades that are anything but white, and we love it! This year grey and peach gowns stole the show with their ability to complement every skin tone!

Continued Trends We Love
Mismatched Bridesmaids
We are so happy this trend has stayed around. Not every color or shape flatters every bridesmaids, which is why choosing a variety of styles or colors is a win-win!

First Looks
Traditionally the first time a groom sees his bride is when she is walking down the aisle. While we love this tradition, the emergence of the First Look has allowed the couple to have a special few moments just to themselves on their big day!
