Soft and Sweet Colors
This past year, pastels and nude tones - other than white - have been mega popular. Natural, soft tones with hints of deeper colors have made for sweet floral arrangements and stunning decor. The soft pastels are very easy to mix and match and allow you to choose more than one accent color. They're also fantastic when it comes to decorating for a rustic wedding, because they fit right into the outdoorsey-sweet vibe that rustic weddings are known for!
Rich, Dark Tones
I know what you're thinking: weddings are all about the light colors. But this year, the deep colors continued to gain popularity. And I must say, they deserve to stay through 2017! Royal purples, rich maroons and classic blues have proved that dark colors can bring a level of elegance to any wedding. In case you weren't already convinced, choosing a deep color other than stark black adds subtle contrast to any part of your wedding in a way that stark black just doesn't. Plus, it means you can add dark colors to your wedding cake and not turn your teeth black (it's happened before!).
Metals with a Twist
One creative way to spice up a simple wedding is to mix up your metals, like in this stunning wedding! In a Huffington Post article "The 17 Hottest Wedding Trends for 2017," Sara Fried points out that mixing non-traditional metals will mean a homerun for wedding decor. Rather than reaching for the silvers and golds, consider diving into the coppers and rose golds for a change.
Rustic weddings have that fun, relaxed atmosphere that many brides want for their wedding day. Which is why the rustic wedding is here to stay in 2017. But the rustic wedding theme can be a pretty broad category. Antiques centerpieces, wood signs, metals and exposed lighting all can give a rustic wedding that cute and cozy feeling that weddings are all about.
What goes around comes around, and the same can be said for wedding trends! Vintage ANYTHING survives time and trends like nothing else, so what better trend to base a wedding theme on than that? This trend is pointed out in the same Huffington Post article I mentioned earlier, and I couldn't agree more than "Vintage Glamour" is always in. And the term vintage doesn't have one specific meaning, so you can really spin this trend however you like to give your wedding personality and charm. Statement pieces like this mirror for example can take give you that charm.
