Wedding Trends of 2017
It's been three months but some wedding trends of 2017 have already appeared. It’s time to take a look at all of the creativity that's popped up in the wedding world so far! While the wedding industry has been blessed with some really cool ideas in the way of sentiment and presentation, here are some specifics that we have absolutely fallen in love with and that are easy to tackle and afford. Read on to see!
Letting nature do the work for you is the way to go when it comes to presentation. From the desert landscape as your engagement photo backdrop to a beautiful mountain as your altar background, setting your décor and wedding ambiance in a natural environment is the perfect way to make it all seem effortless and is much easier to afford! There have also been some great décor ideas that include greenery. Check out these super versatile boxwood foliage walls right here in Phoenix! You can work with greenery like this by hanging vintage frames for décor or drawing guests to attach their favorite written memories of you two. Don’t be afraid to get creative! The other great thing about greenery is how forgiving it is, allowing you to hang it all over the place or keeping it to minimal amount.

Everyone loves a good four-main course, but that can get expensive and over-whelming for you and your guests. Thanks to the embrace of simplicity in 2017, feel free to have food for your guests, buffet or finger-food style. People are much more open to filling up on delicious hourdeurves and appetizers as long as they’re fresh, delicious and served in plenty!

While blush took 2016 by storm, things are now taking a turn for the more subtle, muted tones. Think taupe, soft nudes, champagne and greys. This can lead into a lot of variety if you require pops of color but isn’t considered boring if you want to keep your wedding colors neutral. It can also allow for some easy incorporation of golds, silvers, copper, and metallics, which never disappoints and is always a great eye-catcher!

You might have noticed that simplicity is a big theme throughout all of these 2017 trends. This is because that’s what couples are looking for and what make the wedding planning process more affordable and enjoyable. With all of the creativity in décor, rental furniture, florals, and venue atmosphere, it is important to realize that you always use your resources. If you know someone who is an avid wood-worker, don’t be afraid to ask them for help when it comes to wanting a handmade altar. Originality and uniqueness is what brings the elegance and simplicity to your wedding, setting a very comfortable vibe for you and your guests.
