Though a classic black and white tuxedo is always a safe bet, 2016 showed us that there are tons of other classy tux trends to try (say that five times fast!). Royal purples and blues, soft tans, pastels and trendy patterns are fair game in 2017. Whether you've got a soft, spring wedding on your hands or you're aiming for that rustic vibe, soft blue-toned or charcoal greys are always winning ideas. And as for the boutanier, roses always make a statement. But don't be afraid to shop around and find other flowers and textures that fit your wedding and personality more.

Who says you need a white ball gown on your wedding day? Everyone has their own style and personality, and your dress should represent you. If that’s a big white ball gown then great! But if not, 2017 is the year to think outside the box. Off-white and rose pink dresses can add subtle flair to your wedding dress. As for fit, sweetheart necklines, fitted waistlines and jeweled belts are staples if you’re not sure where to start your dress hunt. According to Roberta Corriea from Brides.com Spring 2017 Wedding Dress Trends, off-the-shoulder dresses and deep-V fronts filled the bridal runways this season, so keep your eye out for those as well!

One of the great things about bridesmaids’ dresses is that they do not all have to be the same. One trend that has been popping up over the years which will surely continue through the new year is matching color, not style. This allows each bridesmaid to choose a dress that fits their body type and personality, like these ladies did. But they still look like one group! Also, two-piece bridesmaids’ sets made an appearance in 2016, though they weren’t necessarily the most popular style. I think spring and summer 2k17 will bring a lot more sets like this with it!
