Yes, we are a little bit late to the party on this one…
Whether or not you follow wedding trends and are influenced by them or not, they are full of inspiration, are a great starting point and bring the wedding community together.
For us, we love seeing ideas, arising from the latest wedding trends, come together to create WOW weddings. There are some seriously yummy, stylish and fashion-forward trends for 2017 and long may they continue! So, what are the wedding trends for 2017? Take a look at our pick of the bunch!
We really really really (really) love donut walls! Why are we only seeing this in 2017?! This is such a fun, yummy and interactive element to add to your wedding day and will be a major hit with your guests. We have found that they look most amazing when adding all different styles and flavours of donuts. Why not go all out and create a dessert station with the donut wall as your super scrummy backdrop. We know you want to!

Jumpsuits for Bridesmaids
Major yay to not worrying about the wind baring all or having to shave your legs (but we advise you do for your besties big day)! This is SUCH a stylish trend and we have yet to see a bridal party look anything but.
This is also an outfit you can wear time and time again which is fab (cue fist pump) especially if you are the one paying for it. From classic black to lively pinks, long sleeves to bandeaus we are sure you’ll find a style to suit everyone in your bridal party.
We talked about greenery in another blog and this is such a big trend for 2017 and beyond. Not only are we talking about weddings filled with more flowers but filled with more fern and greenery.
It adds beautiful texture, warmth and some amazing hues to an otherwise, dare we say it, possibly bland wedding. We urge you to use ALL the greenery and flora available to you as it might not be around for as long as you think (yes we are being a tad dramatic but why not!).
Want to wow your guests in a feminine and whimsical way? Cue floral hangings! Whether from existing chandeliers, dotted around the venue or running the whole length of a banqueting table, floral hangings are so dramatic and create an instant wow factor for your guests.
There are so many different ways to incorporate floral hangings into your special day. If the budget doesn’t stretch, why not scavenge for milk bottles or jam jars and put individual flowers inside them and hang with pretty ribbon to create a flower curtain or bunch together to create a hanging bouquet. The possibilities are endless and oh so beautiful.
We are so pleased to see couples opting for more unique, colourful and heartfelt stationary for their wedding.
We are ALL for illustrators creating a story through stationary whether it be adding in your beloved dog or showing off a sneak peak of your venue. There are so many amazing illustrators out there and we are especially LOVING the work of Fin Fellowes and Victoria Fitzroy.
Boho Wedding Dresses
Although, we will forever be wowed by beautiful, big, sparkling wedding dresses, we have seen brides yet again breaking tradition and opting for a simpler, sleeker wedding dress. But don’t be disheartened because the dresses of today still pack a punch and are still WOW worthy.
Delicate lace, intricate embroidery, plunging neck and back lines, relaxed but still form fitting styles and less meringue (phew!) are here and here to stay! Our favourite designers at the moment are Needle and Thread (left), Temperley London (middle) and Grace Loves Lace (right).
