Our look at 2017 wedding trends – part 2

Last week we started our look at the most talked-about 2017 wedding trends (for part 1 click here).   This week we thought we’d highlight a few of the other trends forecast by our friends over at Coco Wedding Venues.

Coco Wedding Venues

Starting with shades of nude.   We saw some of these here last year in bridal gowns, bridesmaids dresses, flowers, cakes and table settings.  Carrying over a colour into all aspects of the wedding style creates a coherent look that seems effortless (but isn’t!).

These nude bridesmaids’ gown from Georgia & Lee’s wedding make a big contribution to the colour.   And don’t forget the groom and his guys, the pale grey groomsmen’s suits from Charlotte & Luke’s wedding make an impact too.


Nudes and neutrals can be carried through from dress through to flowers and other accessories such as shoes and sandles.    Mis-matched bridesmaids’ and flower girl dresses give you a wide choice of colours and textures and the options of beads and sequins ramp up the glam factor as you can see from these weddings of top left, mid-right & bottom row: Kari & Ian, mid-right:  Lauren & Paul, mid-mid: Sarah & Justin, top right:  Aimee & Josh.


Iced and naked cakes can both help promote this colour palette as you can see from these cake pics from the wedding of (top left) Lauren & Paul, (right) Cady & Sam and (bottom left) Hannah & Kevin.


Your signs and table settings are another place to follow through with nude shades.  Metallics and glass are great additions which work beautifully with this palette.   Photos below from weddings of top left: Hannah & Kevin, mid and bottom left: Georgia & Lee, right: Charlotte & Luke.


Your flowers make a big impact on your day and these nude colours created by Dartmoor Flowers for Kari & Ian’s wedding with the use of roses, astilbes and cosmos with complementary ribbons are a great example.   You might have bridal and bridesmaids bouquets, buttonholes, wedding wands and table flowers which can carry the colours for you.


Kari & Ian’s wedding is a great example of nude and barely there colours in your table set up.   Kari used our buttermilk table linen and our rose gold matte sequin table runners as the foundation for her nude tablescapes.   Dartmoor Flowers created these gorgeous foliage garlands which ran down the centre of each table.  The garlands were dotted with single blooms of roses in soft pale colours.  If you’re wondering how you put anything else on the table when there’s a foliage garland running down the middle, good question!   We have clear acrylic risers which stand either side of the garland and allow items to be placed on them.  In the middle photo below you can just see the salt & pepper pots on the riser!  The tables were also decorated with simple table numbers and vases of ribboned wands with bells which guests had used to celebrate the end of the wedding ceremony and we moved them to the terrace so the guests could also ring in the entrance of the bride and groom to the wedding breakfast.

2016-11-02_0007 We love the use of these colours so if this is your colour palette, think of how you can tie everything you bring in for your wedding with them.   Your table numbers/names, favours, table plan, drinks, wedding attire, flowers – there are lots of ways you can use this dreamy palette to create a beautifully styled wedding.
