Wedding decorations say a lot about a bride and groom’s big day. They signify your theme, your personalities, and send a message to guests about what kind of day they can expect. And even more importantly, when done well, they can take a wedding from great to amazing.
For those currently in the planning phase, we’ve got some good news. 2017 is a year filled with beautiful trends and themes in wedding decorations. Pick your theme (or incorporate a few) and you really can’t go wrong.
You probably noticed the rise of copper, rose gold and other metallic tones that have started to appear in (and gradually take over) decor and homewares stores everywhere last year. Lovers of this trend can rejoice because it’s not going anywhere in 2017. This delicate metallic trend sees these tones incorporated into wedding decorations with sophisticated elegance or modern flair.
Think metallic details on vases, candles, hanging lights, table runners, table settings – basically all your wedding decorations.
Greenery is Pantone’s 2017 colour of the year for a reason. Soft green flowers and leaves are featuring more and more in bouquets and floral centrepieces, and leaves can be used to decorate tables and chairs with stunning results.
In an interview with Brides.com, wedding planner Virginia Edelson said the colour green will also appear in linens, invitations and place settings, but ‘greenery’ will be everywhere.
