Wedding Decor / Design Trends

Botanical: Or Greenery is the BIGGEST trend for 2017 in all elements of design. This is the absolute hottest trend. From decor, to stationary, to the color of the year. The ‘indoor garden’ is going to be a huge concept in the coming year. You may be aware of the ‘outdoors in’ and ‘garden’ themes in the past, but this is a little different. Instead of earthy and woodland tones the ‘botanical’ look is clean and contemporary. Lots of succulents and cacti accented with glass, those awesome geometric terrariums and a color palate of green and white.

Geometric: Think shapes! Geometric patterns are all the rage in the wedding design world this year. A little touch of geometric shapes can turn all the traditional elements of a wedding or event into something a little (or a lot) more funky. From hanging flowers in geometric terrariums, to decorating cakes with sharp patterns. Geometric is everywhere!

Industrial: Decorators and designers are moving away from the glitz and shimmer into industrial and rustic themes. This trend focuses on bare lightbulbs, exposed brickwork, stripped down decor, warehouses, and metallics that are weathered and tarnished. Think gunmetal for color, paired with with reds and tones of teal and moss.

Mix & Match: Why be stuck to one theme or trend when you can have them all! That’s the great idea behind the mix and match trend. All of the decor ideas mentioned above can be mixed and matched to create a stunning wedding design. Rustic rose gold colors in a patterned geometric table runner, or decorate an industrial, smoky metallic table cloth with geometric terrariums filled with botanics.Add in some succulents, some patterns, some shapes, whatever your heart desires!

Minimalist nothing shows off Calligraphy better than minimalist designs, allowing you to focus more attention on the letters and words, than distracting images or colors.
Metallic Touches in 2017 will appear on wedding invitations such as foil pressed calligraphy, borders, polka dots, or envelope liners.

Naked cakes are so 2016, hugely popular last year was the naked cake and we are so excited to welcome the Partially-Naked cake. Simple and elegant with just the right amount of icing.

This style allows for a large range of customization, and can work with basically any theme. Watercolor cakes are on point for 2017 weddings.
Who says tier cakes have to be centered? We love the new trend of off-set wedding cakes.
