Personalized Wedding Parties
More couples will focus on intimate ceremonies that they are able to personalize depending on their unique story. This means that a lot more people will prefer wedding venues that are sizeable and have a distinct building.
Forget about the all-white weddings. 2017 is likely to be the year when brides and grooms embrace the use of color in their event. From choosing colorful centerpieces to installing distinct lighting patterns and designs, weddings this year will be strikingly colorful.
Wedding couples have come up with very elaborate and unique entrances in 2016 and this is likely to trend more this year. The use of over the top décor on the wedding entrance as well as custom made art pieces is likely to take center stage. Some weddings will take into account elements that grab the attention of their guests such as fire starters or unique entertainment.
A Rise in Destination Weddings
It’s no surprise that couples will prefer to do away with the traditional wedding at their hometown and invite their close friends and family to venues miles away from their home. Hot spots like Mexico, Jamaica and Bahamas will still remain favorites among wedding couples. Travelling far away for weddings and honeymoon will be something many couples consider as we approach the wedding season mid-year.
Mobile Wedding Planning
Today, couples are using their mobile devices to keep up to date with their wedding planning. Wedding planners who fail to utilize mobile apps, which can help their clients to find out how far they are in the process, are likely to miss out in 2017. You will continue to see more couples planning the entire process online.
Innovative Wedding Gowns
Ever seen wedding gowns with a removable skirt? This allows brides to have a different looking outfit during the wedding ceremony and reception instead of buying two gowns. With the removable skirt, a bride can have the ball gown and sheath dress all at the same time. We expect to see many other gorgeous gowns that are cost effective, comfortable and practical for all kinds of weddings.
