Big, Beautiful 2017 Wedding Trends to Keep an Eye Out For

2017 is here, and it is time to say goodbye to boho brides, mismatched bridesmaids, and mason jars as far as the eye can see. Instead, it is time for a whole new lineup of wedding trends in 2017. Read on to learn more about the most popular wedding trends of the new year.

Color, color everywhere
For the past couple of years, muted and neutral color palettes were all the rage. But in 2017, brides will be splashing their weddings and receptions with color everywhere and anywhere. It won't be just one color, either. Rather, there will be a whole abundance of color from different shades of the main theme, accompanied by lighting fixtures, bountiful centerpieces, and wedding linen rentals in more shades than just white.

Destination weddings
Even though The Knot reports that the average number of wedding guests is around 136 people, this number may be drastically lower for those that want a wedding away. In fact, limiting the guest list is a popular reason to choose a destination wedding in the first place. Not only are tropical escapes still a popular choice to get married, more wedding planners are helping their clients tie the knot in exotic destinations such as Iceland and Italy.

Virtual planning
Now that more Millennials are getting married, virtual wedding planners are all the rage. This includes wedding planning apps that give brides and grooms satisfaction at the touch of a button.

Speaking of Millennials, weddings are becoming all about saving money, which is why wedding rentals are such a big deal nowadays. Instead of purchasing expensive decor, more couples are relying on affordable wedding rentals such as wedding chairs, chic tent rentals, centerpieces, and linens.

Look up
A guest at a 2017 wedding will be looking up, up, and away at the weddings. A huge trend coming up in the new year are centerpieces coming down from the ceiling and floral arrangements scaling the walls and top of the wedding tents. This vertical impact will certainly pack a punch.

Never ending food
The days of a sit down dinner are over; instead, prepare your guests for a never ending feast of food. We're talking cocktail appetizers, hors d'oeuvres, buffet dinners, late night savory snacks, and dessert feasts fit for a king (and queen).

With these up and coming 2017 wedding trends in mind, your wedding is sure to be one for the history books Pinterest boards!
