Are you getting married in 2017? Congratulations! Planning a wedding is a magical time and to give you some inspiration we’ve found a fabulous selection of the most popular wedding themes for 2017. Enjoy reading and let the preparations begin!
One of the hottest wedding theme trends for 2017 is forest weddings. Imagine tying the knot surrounded by natural greenery with seasonal bouquets and lanterns hanging down from the trees – it doesn’t get much more romantic than that! You can create a natural aisle with fresh daisies and an archway of berries to walk underneath – perfect for unforgettable photo shots. Find a walkway of trees for the confetti throwing and your forest wedding will be complete. Once the ceremonies are over, your guests will want to spend time relaxing in the forest; you can hire luxurious outdoor furniture for your guests and enjoy the stunning natural setting in style.
Back to nature with a rustic wedding
Another ever-popular theme for your special day is rustic weddings. Hire a barn and decorate it with sunflowers, berries and wildflowers. Some of our favourite rustic touches include wellington boots outside to hold bouquets or creating a bird’s nest to hold the rings. If there’s a farm shop nearby, ask them to cater on the day and your wedding breakfast will be packed full of home-grown, organic food! For the evening catering, try a barbeque or even a hog roast to keep your rustic theme going strong throughout the day. Guests can relax on striped deckchairs, enjoy their tasty barbeque food and soak up the romantic rustic ambience.
Go vintage in style
The ever-popular vintage theme is still going strong for 2017. If you’re planning on going vintage for your wedding day, search auction houses or vintage boutique shops for pearls, lace or exquisite 1920s-style tiaras. Plenty of wedding dress shops will stock vintage style gowns, or create your own outfit with antique lace. Rose pink is a perfect vintage colour for bouquets and bridesmaids’ dresses. Mis-matched crockery and tableware will give a wonderfully vintage touch for the wedding breakfast or as table centrepieces. For catering, serve classic cupcakes or even hire an ice-cream van for a touch of nostalgia! Hiring a chaise longue is ideal for guest photographs complete with vintage props and accessories.
Why not create the ultimate in classic romance with a fairytale wedding? If budget allows, finding a wedding venue near a lake or even in a castle will give you the most stunning backdrop for your big day. For a touch of classic romance, use plenty of white for dresses and decorations, with roses or lilies for bouquets. You can fill the venue with candlelight or opt for a breath-taking effect by hiring chandeliers. Once the dancing has finished, end the evening with a firework display to celebrate the beginning of your life together.
We love this selection of popular wedding themes for 2017. Whichever one you decide to choose for your special day, we hope that every moment is unforgettable.
