2017 Wedding Trends
At Heaven Event Venue, we love sharing the latest trends in the events industry with our readers. Some of the new trends that will be happening in 2017 will make you fall in love all over again.
Mix Metals are here to stay!
A mix of industrial and modern vibes, with metallic paired with white hues, are at the top of the palette charts of 2017. For a combination made in Heaven, showcase soft brushed metallic on bright white accents, this helps you achieve the contemporary, yet hip atmosphere that is so on-trend. This color palate may be combined with modern or industrial touches to create a classy, fashionable wedding. Ways to incorporate metallic accent pieces are through your linen, floral vases, cake accents and décor items for your sweetheart table.
Paper is making a comeback!
The art of letter writing from invitations, to thank-you letters has a more personal feel over Evites and Facebook invitations. We are seeing paper used in floral bouquets and incorporated into multiple facets of wedding décor. This may be due to its economical and environmentally friendly attributes. This is a great way to create a wedding brand with a signature monogram.
People are opting out of the after-party to have more “wedding time”.
Bringing the after-party to the party seems to be the new trend. After all, who wants to risk losing the festive vibes with a venue change? At Heaven Event Venue, we have the blank canvas required to achieve such a feat, allowing your guests to remain in one location, while keeping the positive energy flowing. We can accomplish this with our white sheer draping and state of the art LED lighting or by transitioning the party to another portion of the event space that provides a bar, a dessert station or even a fun donut wall!
Receiving lines are generally designed to follow the ceremony, or at the beginning of the reception.
This was regarded as etiquette until recently, where now it seems to be a too formal and takes away from the couples socializing throughout the event. In lieu of a receiving line, opt for a meet and greet during cocktail hour to give yourself more time with each guest, but check with your photographer first, as this can also be the ideal lighting during some times of the day!
The White Wedding Dress is not your only option… and in 2017 they are taking centerstage in have never been so diverse.
Ombre colors, textured embellishments and intricate beading flooded the runways. We are also seeing soft Pantones, like Ice Blush, Rose Quartz and Iced Coffee gaining in popularity for 2017’s show-stopping weddings. From sleek, modest silhouettes and elaborate beading to bows that are large, abundant and architecturally draped, the bow is back for 2017!
Every aspect of your wedding should represent who you are as a couple.
