Colorful Motif (Pastel or Bright Rainbow Hues)

From the dress code to the wedding cake – being quite experimental with colors are very much welcome this year. In addition to that, even wedding gowns can have a bit of more color going on!

Cream-Colored Suits for Men
Alright, so we can’t really deny that black and white suits are iconic and they are definitely not going anywhere anytime soon. But when we speak about what’s trendy this year, cream-colored suits for the groom are very much anticipated. To match the colorful motif, a cream or tan-colored suit makes a perfect pair. It’s definitely not any less classy that the conventional ones. In fact, it’s deemed really elegant and fashionable this year.
Ethereal Bridal Dress Silhouettes (Lace, Capes and Breezy Chiffon Fabric)
A lot of fashion designers have already given us a glimpse of what they have in mind for the brides of 2017. Away from the simple plain silk gowns last year, 2017 is all about looking ethereal. In terms of fabric material, design and detail, looking quite magical is what these bridal gown designers have in common. Chiffon capes are also a huge thing for bridal dresses this year rather than long veils.

All About Nature
Lots of flowers, wooden accents, hanging gardens and basically everything that involves nature! Incorporating a forest-y nature theme is still in this year, only on a larger scale.

Metallic Wedding Cake
Don’t we all look forward to the wedding cake?! Apart from anticipating what the bride will look like on her big day, the wedding cake is also one of the main attractions during weddings. For 2017, you can ditch that plain white cake and let go of those cupcake towers because this time, it’s all about metallics! Yes, you read it right – a golden metallic cake! Sounds lavish? Well, it pretty is lavish for custom metallic cakes involve edible gold films!
Minimalist Wedding Souvenirs
No more glass figurines or souvenirs that has the couple’s name on it. This time, it’s all about keeping it simple and minimal when it comes to souvenirs. Succulents are going to be immensely popular in weddings this year and no, they won’t come merely as table decor. Succulent plants would also make a great and fancy giveaway to the guests. Have them in creative jars and pots and we’re pretty sure your guests will love it a 100%.
Pastel Flower Bouquet
Because colorful pastel wedding themes are in, it only goes fitting to say that bridal flower bouquets that come in pastel colors will also be 2017’s biggest hit. Enough of the white or red roses and add more color to your bouquet. It is also a great way to balance the bridal look out as most of the time, bridal gowns come in white.
To join the color trend bandwagon this year, we also have to talk about invitations! It’s also a great way to give your guests an idea of what type of colors are you going for, and therefore incorporate them in their clothing.
Unique Wedding Rings
We often see traditional silver or gold wedding rings, but wedding experts say that this year gives more space to exploring more unique wedding ring choices. The possibilites are endless – it can be made of wood, gold coils, etc!
Vintage Wedding Themes
Wedding experts say that if you are not a big fan of colors (which is quite what explains this year’s bridal trends), you can still go for minimalist and classic hues. This is something that fits a classic vintage wedding! Give your big day a twist of the 20’s or 30’s and still look fad for this year!
