Currently in the throes of planning your big day? Short on wedding trends and inspiration? Here is a round-up of some of the hottest trends and colours that have been on the scene in 2017.

1. Notes that add a personalised touch

A sweet little note next to your dessert bar or ‘favour station’ will add a personalised touch, plus save you having to handwrite notes for every single guest.

2. Waterfall bouquets

Waterfall bouquets are definitely having their moment in the sun right now. They are sensational and offer up so many choices − from rustic arrangements to willowy wildflowers and even a glorious sweeping stream of orchids – and you can add drama with bold colours.

3. The wedding dress

If rose gold or copper is part of your colour palette, allow your dress to make a statement by incorporating this hue into your dress. The plunging neckline is also very on trend as is an open back. Beautiful.

Or go for a colour, but keep it subtle, such as this oh-so-lovely powder blue dress. A surprisingly versatile choice that you can easily tie in with your décor and retinue.

Cascading blossoms (even 3D blooms) are a trend for your actual wedding dress too. If you would like a slightly more paired down look, opt for a white-on-white lace look (at once pretty and feminine), which is also a huge trend for 2017.

Or keep it traditional with a white dress, then up the fun factor with your shoe colour. It’s something unexpected for your guests and will make great photographs too.

4. Florals and herbs 

Florals and herbs continue to be a popular choice for wedding stationery. Stay on-trend by having an envelope liner, which will make a lovely impression on your guests as they open their invites.

5. Wedding Cakes

Keep your cake understated by opting for white icing (in any number of flavours) with olives leaves and dusty pink blooms to finish off the look.

Extend the look to your table too. Think ‘boho bouquets’ and country bunches made up of olives leaves, roses and hydrangeas. Perfect for a rustic wedding.
