January 17, 2017

As well as being a wedding planner, I also love the styling and design side of a wedding.  There are some really beautiful wedding trends for 2017.  Nothing pleases me more than to interpret a bride’s vision.  I love seeing their empty wedding ceremony / reception space and seeing it transform into their dream space.  With the right florists and people on board their ‘dream team’ this is one of the best parts of a wedding setup.  Whether it be the day before or day of, seeing the drapes, lighting, florals arrive is just stunning.

So, what am I seeing as styling trends for 2017 so far …..


Metallics are still very popular, of course with the introduction of rose gold now as well.  The metallic mix looks stunning especially in an industrial or barn space, with a hint of geometric gorgeousness as well can really make it appear that little bit different.  Mixed with florals and candles the reflection from the different metallics can look very striking.

A number of my clients are opting for books as centerpieces this year, with pages spilling onto tables, or even book pages being made into beautiful designs and shapes.  This is especially popular in country house venues.  An old eclectic feel works really well.

Of course, with the Pantone of the Year being announced for 2017 as ‘Greenery’, this is showing a major trend this year.  Natural greenery such as eucalyptus, ivy’s and other natural elements pretty much work in any space and give that real nature and eco feel.  This especially works well on trestle tables and in big spaces that need softening and appear more romantic and natural.  Greenery in bouquets works beautifully for country, woodland and festival style weddings too.

Without the correct lighting no wedding is right.  Fairy lights and tealights are really popular, as well as lanterns in trees.  The correct lighting and ambience is a photographer’s dream as well.  Take time to think how the lighting will work on your wedding day.  Also think about what time it gets dark to ensure your lighting vision works to perfection.

Going on from last year, floral halos are still very popular, especially in a marquee or high ceiling space to really add that extra depth and element.   They don’t just have to be round, they can be oval, oblong, connecting.  They are just beautiful but a lot of work for those lovely flower fairies out there.


Not necessarily a trend but always a favourite and just ‘classic elegance’.  Beautiful flowers in elegant tall vases.  Simple, exquisite, elegant and timeless and never date in your wedding photographs.
