5 Wedding Trends for 2017

The New Year always brings about some exciting wedding trends and the start of 2017 is no different. If your Hudson Valley wedding planning is at its early steps and your special day will take place in 2017, you might want to consider incorporating these new and magical wedding trends to your wedding day celebrations.


1. Grand entrances


Brides have always enjoyed the moment of entrance to the wedding venue when the attention of everyone in the room falls on them. But in 2017, the entrance is becoming particularly grandiose with grand entrances coming a top wedding trend. And the focus is not just on how the bride walks in, but what sort of entrance guests make. There should be plenty of welcoming entertainment and show stopping décor. You should consider picking your Hudson Valley wedding venue carefully and focus on starting your ceremony with a wow-factor.


2. Color comeback


Wedding colors have been rather toned-down this year. White weddings have been popular with soft pastels also controlling the wedding trends. But 2017 will see color explosion, with bright colors being used as the main decorative element as well as in bright accents. Metallic colors such as gold continue to be popular, together with an exciting pairing with glass elements.


3. Late-night snacking


Wedding food has seen its trends change from classic, up-scale foods to funky food bars. In 2017, the trend that will be catching headlines is late-night snacks for guests. The food should be in abundance and your wedding guests shouldn’t leave your special party with an empty tummy. In terms of wedding desserts, you need to continue skipping the traditional wedding cake to something more dynamic such as cheese platters, doughnuts and cookies.


4. Ice-breaking entertainment


When it comes to entertainment, wedding trends in 2017 are all about fun. You want to engage your guests and ensure they are getting to know each other. What are the popular icebreakers for the year? Unique entertainment, such as fire-eaters and contortionists, will be the key to creating memorable moments for your guests. You should also add a magic wedding photo booth to your Hudson Valley wedding reception to get the guests talking. Techy wedding trends are definitely a must-have for the year.


5. Doing good


Couples are starting to move away from big and expensive wedding registers and instead of asking something for themselves, they tell guests to share the love elsewhere. Charity registers are going to become more popular in 2017, with couples looking to spread the message of love to their chosen causes, from animal welfare to charities for children.


The above are some of the top wedding trends for 2017. The year is going to be filled with fun and color – the focus is on creating extravagant weddings to stay in your and your guests’ memory for a long time to come.
