Weddings are steeped in tradition (some wonderful, some outdated). So, much to our delight, options for decor, dress and everything in between are always changing (otherwise we’d still be rocking ’80s tendrils down the aisle). Here, seven delightful trends you’ll be seeing everywhere this spring. Happy pinning.
Massive orbs are the new mylar letters. Whether hanging low and embellished with garlands or blanketing a tented ceiling, expect to see enormous balloons upping the whimsy at nuptials everywhere. (And people, they are wedding photo gold.)
Blooms? Who needs ’em? Greenery, Pantone’s color of the year for 2017, truly set the wheels in motion for lush, verdantly green bouquets, boutonnieres, aisle embellishments and more.
Solange showed us how to don a full-fledged superhero cape, and now the trend has evolved into something a bit more accessible to us earthlings: the mini cape. They’re both beautifully dramatic and practical for spring’s fickle temperatures.
Not quite frosted and not quite naked, the latest wedding cake craze is chic towers that merely hint at their delicious interiors. (Also note: The #greenery runneth over.)
Similar to cakes, dining tables are ditching the fuss and going for the whole easy elegance thing by stripping down to almost-bare surfaces with breezy, romantic dressings—think billowing runners and loosely knotted napkin presentations.
CUSTOM WATERCOLOR ILLUSTRATIONS
With Etsy, Instagram and the ever-changing digital world, more and more couples are reaching out with custom requests to artists they follow and love. We’ve been seeing plays on family crests, nostalgic ceremony illustrations, location maps and, of course, lots of pets.
Brides are collectively embracing one universal truth: Whether or not your ‘do is in place is truly the last thing you want to worry about on the big day. So like much else this season, expect easy and perfectly imperfect when it comes to hairstyles, too.
