Planning a wedding in 2017? Here are some popular wedding trends on the rise that you may want to incorporate into your big day. Brides-to-be, take notes!
1. A pop of color.
Neutrals, pastels and even metallics are popular picks when it comes to wedding color schemes, but not without a bright color! Consider something like peach, gray, silver, and a cheerful coral, or simple black and white with a bold red.
2. Naked cakes.
Many brides are ditching the fondant and buttercream and opting for bare cakes. Naked cakes showcase their contrasting insides, and can be decorated just as beautifully as a frosted cake. Accents such as flowers and foliage tie together this unique and rustic look.
3. Dessert bars.
The traditional wedding cake can never be replaced, but many couples are embracing additional desserts such as ice cream, donuts and candy. It’s a great alternative for those who don’t typically go for the cake, and all ages are welcome!
4. All you can eat.
In addition to hors d'oeuvres, dinner and dessert, late night snacks served toward the end of the wedding reception are becoming a must-do. For a shore wedding or just a couple who loves the beach, a popular idea is a taste of the boardwalk – classic seaside snacks including ice cream, funnel cake, popcorn, salt water taffy, fudge and pizza.
5. Tech touches.
We live in a world gone digital, so why not embrace it? Integrate technology into your special day with things like Snapchat geofilters, hashtags, live video streaming on Facebook, selfie sticks and charging stations. Let your guests document your special day and share it with their own family and friends!
