A new year means it’s time to predict the wedding and events landscape for the months ahead. We scoured the internet and consulted many different sources, and pulled together some of the most popular – and some of our favorite – anticipated trends for 2017.

Overflowing Greenery and Pops of Color
Through all our research, two major themes kept coming up: greenery and bold colors. Vogue interviewed eight top planners to get their thoughts on the biggest trends of 2017, and found the same thing – 2017 will be a year of bountiful greenery and a shift towards more boisterous colors and themes. Personally we love this idea, and can’t wait to see how it plays out.

More Metallics
In recent years, we’ve seen metallic materials play a much larger part in the decor landscape at events. Popular in applications like flower vases and other decorative vessels and glassware, in 2017 the Huffington Post expects to see even more metallic. We can see it being especially pretty as an accent on tables, favors, or finishing touches on a bridal bouquet.

An Emphasis on the Experience
Style Me Pretty pulled together a great round-up of many 2017 trends, but the resounding theme seemed to revolve around elevating the entire experience. Brides adding a floral crown, interactive food stations, new and improved photo booths, and unusual entertainment are just a few new themes we’re likely to see this year. There are all sorts of ways to make an impression, and in 2017, we’ll have to keep an eye out for the best ideas.

Unique Invitations
With the resurgence of custom calligraphy and hand-lettered elements, The Knot predicts that unique invitations will play a big part in creating the weddings of 2017. And why not? The personal touch is such a beautiful and classy way to elevate not only your invitations, but the day-of experience.

Elaborate Entrances and Creative Ice-Breakers
So many trends revolve around food and decor, but the people-part of weddings is equally important. BRIDES shared a list of 13 trends that’ll be huge in 2017, highlighting two pieces that aren’t exclusively decor-related that really stood out to us: couples creating elaborate entrances (think sparklers as they walk down the aisle) and introducing creative ice-breakers to make guests more comfortable and to encourage mingling.

We can’t wait to see how each of these themes plays out through 2017 and beyond.

If you’re planning a wedding or event this year, what special touches are you planning to introduce to your special day?
