Wedding themes and trends go hand-in-hand when putting an event together. Often, popular décor trends can dictate the theme of the wedding and vice versa. Looking for a neutral-toned wedding? Start by pairing trendy metallic colors for a beautifully subtle touch. If a garden wedding is more your taste, having tons of greenery (which is quite on-trend) is the way to go.

Let’s take a look at three popular themes you’ll be seeing in 2017:

Color, color and more color will definitely be making a statement in the upcoming year. From the flowers to the linens all the way to the bridesmaid dresses, there will be no shortage of bold and vibrant hues. The theme has gained the well-deserved moniker as ‘a rainbow wedding,’ which is a fitting title for such a happy day!

Another popular wedding theme in the spotlight is all things tropical. If taking your wedding to the beach (metaphorically or physically) has always been a dream, then look no further than the bright and fun shades that are native to the tropics! Deep oranges and pinks paired with large and bright tropical foliage, like White Star and Bismarkia, will give the event a beachy feel that everyone will love.

Glamorous Romance

Glamorous romance is one of the most popular themes we’ve seen in 2016 and we don’t expect it to be going anywhere! Tall centerpieces with elegant florals mixed with blush tones, candlelight and metallic details make this a favorite for couples who want to highlight intimacy and romance on their special day.

We are so excited to see what other themes will emerge in 2017! Keep your eye out for the newest trends and how you can incorporate them into your wedding design.
