Some of our favorite wedding experts have given us a sneak peek at what wedding trends are on the rise. Here’s what’s going to be trendy with weddings in the coming year.
A Wedding Color Comeback
“Color is making a comeback, versus all-white weddings. We’re seeing less floral and more props as well as hanging centerpieces and more lighting patterns in abundance.” —Nahid Farhoud, Nahid’s Global Events
“We are seeing a rise in elaborate entrances and we expect to see this trend continue into the New Year. This includes over-the-top décor as guests make their way to the event, as well as incorporating unique entertainment (think fire starters!) that grabs guests’ attention.” —Fabrice Orlando, Cocoon Events Management Group
Faraway Destinations wedding
“While tropical paradises like Mexico, Jamaica, the Bahamas and Costa Rica still top the list of hot spots to tie the knot, we’ve seen Iceland, Canada and Italy emerge as popular locales for couples looking to go off the beaten path.” —Megan Velez, Destination Weddings
“Couples have gone fully mobile with their wedding plans. Millennials are all about instant gratification, so they want their wedding planning right at their fingertips at any given moment. There’s going to be a continued increasing in seeing the whole planning process online.” —Li Zhou, LadyMarry
“When it comes to wedding decor, couples are looking up for inspiration. They are taking advantage of the vertical visual space above guest tables and highlighting it with a number of options. Expect to see tall tapers paired with luxurious candelabras, low-hanging string lights or Edison bulbs and chandeliers in a variety of shapes and sizes in 2017.” —Audrey Isaac, 100 Candles
