We have Spring Fever over here at Events by Deb! Our sunny season brides are gearing up for their big day and we are following close to what is trending in the wedding industry with a close eye. An important part of being a wedding planner is to keep tabs on any and all upcoming trends happening now and even a year out considering how long the planning process takes.
Pantone’s Color Of The Year 2017 is Greenery and we are seeing cheerful hues pop up in wedding trends for the Spring and Summer. We are in awe over soft, organic eucalyptus being incorporated into bouquets and floral arrangements. Our favorite integration of this trend is replacing the traditional cloth table runner with an interwoven mix of greens and pops of bright flowers. No centerpiece is needed with this decadent spin on the traditional centerpiece!
Vintage inspired themes are making a huge impact on weddings. Brides will be requesting deep waves to compliment their delicately beaded and lace covered gowns. We are excited to see new hues in lipstick and makeup mavens influencing purples and reds into the wedding scene. We love the request of rustic barns for venues to compliment mason jars and vintage heirlooms. Expect to see strings of lights and glowing candles among glimmering metallics.
The wedding hashtag has become a must have and still trending strong. Couples are creating their #perfectphrase to connect their love into something catchy for social media. With Instagram and Facebook hosting the majority of our photos, this is a great way for the couple to promote fun inside images of their planning process with their guests who can type it in and view what they’re up to. This is also a great way for guests to snap their own selfies or take wonderfully candid videos and share with the bride and groom to enjoy on their honeymoon!
Hand crafted calligraphy for invitations, menu cards, and thank you’s are trending for a more personal touch on these mementos. Many couples are opting for unique, textured papers and hiring calligraphers rather than printing stationery for that soft and whimsical look. Many brides are even trying their hand at the art for that extra special effect and adding dimensional details with scrapbooking decor so no two invitations look alike. We love the creativity!
One last wedding trend we have to touch on are bold entrances and unexpected dance routines. While we have seen a few out of the box wedding videos pop up on Youtube in the past, this trend is shaking up the traditional wedding. We are now seeing the Groom plan a dance routine for his bride which puts a huge grin on our faces. Many weddings are mixing up the bridal party entrance music and allowing each individual to put their own spin as they walk down the aisle. This is a great way to modernize any wedding and keeps guests on their toes wanting more!
