If you are tying the knot in 2017, the planning process is probably already well underway. Knowing the hot wedding trends for the coming wedding season will make planning your own ceremony easier and more rewarding.
Wild Wild West Theme
So far one of the hottest wedding trends for 2017 is the Wild West wedding. These cowboy and cowgirl-themed weddings are all the rage, not only in the western part of the country but the east as well.
You do not have to go all out and get married on horseback to take advantage of this new wedding trend (but you can if you want to). Something as simple as tweaking the catering can give your traditional wedding a Wild West feel. Catering for weddings does not have to mean boring sandwiches and rubber chicken. What guest wouldn’t love some barbecued baked beans and hot dogs roasted over an open fire? Whether your wedding ceremony is taking place in Billings, Montana or Raleigh, NC, you can bring a tough of the Old West to your big day.
New Age Photography
If you have a generous wedding budget (or a tech-savvy friend), taking your wedding photos and videos by drone is a great idea. Drone wedding photos and Go-Pro video recording are both hot trends for 2017.
You can make your drone wedding photos and Go-Pro adventure as simple or elaborate as you wish. If you are lucky enough to have a friend with a personal drone or Co-Pro camera, you may be able to get them to video or photograph your wedding from afar. If not, there are companies that specialize in drone and other aerial photography.
Need Wedding Favors??
If you are having trouble getting your bridesmaids together to create those handmade wedding favors, you do not have to worry any more. Outsourcing those boring wedding tasks is one of the most popular trends for the 2017 bridal season. Apps like TaskRabbit let you find willing workers to create wedding favors, run errands and do other tasks you do not have time for.
When it comes to wedding apparel, jumpsuits have been taking center stage in 2017. This trend might not be for everyone, but there are some stunning styles available for fashion-forward brides. Before you write off the idea of wearing a jumpsuit to your wedding, at least take a look at the pictures.
The boho chic wedding is another popular trend for 2017 wedding ceremonies. Everyone from the bridesmaids to the brides have been taking on this new style and incorporating the loose, flowing clothes that make boho chic such an enduring fashion trend.
The earth tones and understated elegance of bohemian chic fashion are perfect for weddings – the pure white of the boho chic wedding gown and comfortable flat shoes pair wonderfully with earth-tone bridesmaid gowns and understated accessories.
Once you know what you will be wearing, the next step is to decide on the venue. Unusual wedding venues have been rising in popularity, and 2017 weddings have taken place everywhere from castles and private estates to amusement parks and caves. Start thinking about your favorite places and how they can fit into your ceremony. No matter how unusual the venue, there is probably a way to incorporate it into your wedding.
