Today's post is one I am suuuuuper excited about! As we head into March, I head straight in to wedding season, and I have never been more ready! The next SEVERAL months will be filled with engagement sessions, bridal sessions, and obviously weddings, too. So, in light of the wedding season being upon us, I thought I'd take a moment and just share a few of my personal FAVORITE trends for this year.
Pastels, Pastels, Pastels. Heart eyes for like, ever. This trend is not going anywhere in 2017 and I am A-ok with that! Pastel colors can be mixed and matched and brides are using them not only in their bridesmaids' dresses, but the colors carry over so beautifully to the florals, invitation suites, table linens-ugh! I just can't get enough of this sweet and romantic color scheme!
I love wedding flowers, and I don't even feel bad about it. There's pretty much no other time in your entire life when you get to pick out SO MANY GORGEOUS FLOWERS to decorate a single event with, and while no, they don't last long, they will be remembered forever as one of the loveliest details of your wedding day. So, I say go for it brides- YOLO. This year's trends that I'm loving: swoon-worthy delicate blooms (garden roses, peonies, ranunculus), and sky-high centerpieces.
Caligraphy is going NOWHERE anytime soon. Expect to see beautiful hand lettering everywhere this year- the invitation suites, menus, cute signs, you name it! Caligraphy is here to stay!
Doughnuts, pies, cupcakes, and cake pops all had a good run but, this year THE CAKE IS KING! Tall, multi-tiered cakes are back and bigger than ever before. There is something that just feels so elegant and timeless about a gorgeous, tiered cake, and it is officially back to being the star of the show in 2017.
Food. My favorite part. Seriously. Don't judge me...or do? I don't care. Ya'll---FOOD TRUCKS ARE HAPPENING AT WEDDINGS NOW. Whaaaat? Yes. I can.not.get.behind.this.enough. It is such a fun and new twist on the formal sit down dinner. This certainly won't be for everyone, nor will it make sense to do at every venue but- oh man. Just, yes!
So that's my take on 2017 wedding trends!
Let me know if I missed anything major. I can't wait to see all of my #nataliesmithbrides walk down the isle this year!! You all are going to be so gorgeous, your wedding days ALL so perfect, and I really do mean it when I say: I love, love, LOVE my job, and I have the best clients, EVER!
Cheers to your perfectly planned and Pinterest-worthy parties,
