The romantic, elegant look of lace has become essential to wedding décor in 2017. Larger, vintage patterns are used in more modern ways. Whether the themes are heading toward a rustic or glamorous path, it is easy to make lace work in the wedding space. A little detail like this can make a big impact.

Ballet Inspired Palettes

Variants of muted peaches, honey tones, champagnes, blushes, and creams are hauntingly beautiful, and very understated. Yet, they are being breathed back to life this year. Brides and grooms are adopting the hue into their classic palettes, that just can’t be beaten for their special occasion.

Rose Gold

And, in comes rose for the gold! This fun, authentic shade has most recently taken over our daily accessories. In 2017 rose gold is having a very special moment by being curated into sophisticated color schemes. It’s definitely a shade that is worth adding to a posh celebration.


Velvet has been quite the underappreciated texture in the past, but this time around splashes of the fabric is what is making your wedding stand out in the best way. From ribbons to table linen, dashes of velvet will be a huge hit in 2017.

Natural Elements

Infusing nature into one of the biggest days of one’s life is coming into full swing this year, mainly thanks to the support of Pantone’s announcement of their Color of the Year, ‘Greenery.’ With the help of components such as marble, geode, petrified wood, and succulents to express organic treasures, this craze is sure to hit us in 2017 with fury.


You must admit, life sure can be simpler thanks to some of the latest and greatest emerging products in the tech industry. How many headaches could be prevented by having a charging station in the venue? Digital mapping, social media photo booths, and even drone photography have found their way into weddings through necessity.

Mixing of Textures

Texture play is not a game for the faint of heart. Our eyes are instantly drawn to the best of the extremes when mixing up your textures in a wedding. Satin, velvet, sequin and more will be incorporated into the same themes thanks to a tight color scheme and complimentary elements.

Oversized Florals

This year when it comes to the flowers at your wedding, bigger is always better. There’s no such thing as too many flowers at your wedding as long as they are carefully landscaped to the architecture. Bouquets this year are fuller, and arrangements are larger and more thought out.

Interactive Late Night Food Stations

When your reception starts to seep into the evening hours, hunger can sure ensue on you and your guests. Beautiful and sensible late night snacks are not just considered but seen as a big focus in the planning. Creating a social scene that melds in perfectly with food here-and-there will be essential to setting the evening’s mood.

Minus the Cake, Add the Desserts

A surprising rise of brides and grooms have been opting out of having a cake and going for a sophisticated feast of desserts instead. It’s not just about cupcakes, but instead, selections have evolved to new heights of candy bars, beer stands, cookies trays, donut walls, and more. Unique foods have proven to be a major focal point in weddings—especially in the sweets area.
