Out goes the old and in comes the new! Each year that passes by, weddings are getting more creative and more design-focused than ever before, and with that, we are majorly excited for all of the wedding trends to come in 2017. If you’re a fashion, design and pop culture fanatic like we are, then you probably can already predict some of the things that will be big in 2017. But if you’re not, don’t worry — we got you covered! Here’s what we predict will be big in 2017 weddings.


1. Geometric Decor: Geometric shapes are totally in for weddings this year. Hang pieces from the ceiling, or use them as centerpieces to get a super modern look. (via GATHER Events, J Wiley Photography)


2. Hand Lettering: Invitations are getting simpler, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less beautiful. Hand lettering is the chicest way to achieve a minimalistic and gorgeous suite. (via A Charming Fete, Addison Jones Photography)


3. Off-the-Shoulder Wedding Dresses: Off-the-shoulder dresses are everywhere this season, including in bridal, and we guarantee they won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. This timeless look is right for any season and will be sure to wow your guests. (via The Graceful Host, Erin Grey Couture, Lauren Rosenau Photography)


4. Large and Lush Bouquets: Brides are all about pushing the envelope in 2017. We predict brides to incorporate lots more texture and combine non-traditional florals and greenery together. (via Nicole George Event Planning, Bloom Babes, Half Full Photography)

5. All Green Bouquets: With “Greenery” as Pantone’s Color of the Year, brides will want to incorporate this stunning shade in their wedding details. A simple, all-green bouquet is the prettiest match with a white gown. (via Meant2Be Events, Jasen Arias Weddings)


6. Acrylic Invites: Couples will get edgier with their stationery choices. Acrylic or lucite invites are a great way to get this modern look. (via Prim & Pixie, Anna Delores Photography)


7. Clever Favors: Say goodbye to cheesy favors. 2017 will bring more creative and personalized favors for guests. (via Vitae Weddings, Wish Wedding Planning)


8. Headpieces: Brides will definitely be more “fashion-forward” in 2017. A jeweled headpiece in lieu of a traditional veil will leave a lasting impression on your guests. (via D. Cantidio / Raquel Cunha)


9. Passports Stationery: With more couples deciding to take their weddings abroad, it’s only fitting that the invitation matches the theme. We’re excited to see more creative stationery suites that play up wedding motifs. (via Lepenn Designs, Jenny May Photography)


10. Fun Invites: Forget the traditional invite in 2017. Use unique shapes and letters to set the tone for your big day. (via Hoopla! Events, The Roc Shop, Six Hearts Photography)


11. Trendy Desserts: Cakes are so yesterday. Trendy desserts like donuts, cupcakes and even churros will be gracing weddings all over in 2017. (via Feathered Arrow, Anna J Photography)


12. Hanging Backdrops: Picture-perfect vows won’t end in 2016, but creative hanging installations will add to the entire look of ceremonies. It’s even a great spot for guests to take pictures afterward. (via D. Cantidio, Aloha Fotografia)


13. Mixing Patterns: Popular fashion trends like mixing patterns will certainly emerge in the wedding space. While this look might not be for everyone, this is a great aesthetic for the fun and artsy couple! (via Color Pop Events, Brklyn View Photography, Juli Vaughn Designs, Gubba Gumma Studios)


14. Colorful Hues: 2016 has seen a ton of beautifully done neutral weddings, but 2017 is going to be all about bright and colorful hues. Tropical flowers are a great way to achieve this look. (via Steven Boyle Design, Moana Events, Absolutely Loved Photography)
