A new year is the perfect opportunity to begin a new chapter in your life, so if you and your partner have decided to get married, this year should be yours. Your wedding day will be one of those you’ll remember for the rest of your lives, which is why you should do everything you can to make it perfect. Therefore, when planning the big day, you should have in mind the latest wedding trends that will help you celebrate your love in style.

The Union between the Vintage and the Modern

The year of 2017 is the time when two styles will unite to create a unique wedding atmosphere – the modern and the vintage. The vintage theme has always been a popular choice for weddings, since it has a timeless value and glamorous flair. In addition, the vintage style creates an ambiance of romance which is perfect for celebrating love. However, this year it will embrace modern elements, which will provide you with an elegant wedding with contemporary comforts. The possibilities you have when it comes to blending these two styles are limitless. One of the many benefits of the vintage theme is that you can incorporate your family heirlooms in the décor or in your wedding apparel. Other design elements include vintage china and glassware, vintage-inspired wedding invitations and even the wedding altar. As for the modern details, you can find a variety of different ways to incorporate technology into your wedding. Having a slideshow of your photographs is a great way to share your moments with your friends and family. You can achieve an amazing effect if you project an image along the aisle. Blending the modern and vintage themes offers many décor opportunities that will make your wedding unique and memorable.

The Rustic Charm

Another theme that has been enjoying popularity among wedding designers, as well as among couples, is rustic-inspired weddings, and it seems that this trend is here to stay for the following years. The rustic theme is perfect if you want a simple, yet romantic wedding that isn’t difficult to organise. This theme aims at incorporating natural elements into the décor, such as wood and flowers. Rustic weddings often take place outdoors in unique, romantic settings decorated with garlands, such as gardens, barns or even forests. If you opt for a rustic wedding, there’s a lot opportunities for DIY projects. For example, you can create your own floral backdrop or beautiful centrepieces. In order to create a dreamy, romantic ambiance, you can include various lighting options, such as string twinkle lights. When designing a rustic wedding, you should find different ways to include fabrics such as burlap and lace, a classic rustic combination, or tulle for a more chick and elegant flair. You can use these materials for decorating your chairs, tables, centrepieces or altar.

The Return of Colours

All-white weddings are being left behind in favour of more colourful weddings. The year of 2017 has brought dramatic weddings with bold colours and conspicuous elements. Therefore, you should embrace jewel-inspired hues, such as yellow, blue, dark purple, deep green and magenta which are in the spirit of Pantone colour trends. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you have to have a rainbow-coloured wedding – you can include these hues by using them as accent colours of dramatic wedding elements. For example, you can have your wedding cake in a vivid colour, or opt for the services of a muscle car hire in Sydney and rent a car in a conspicuous hue. However, if you decide to go with a more neutral palette, 2017 offers another colour possibility. You can combine neutrals, such as greys, charcoals and creams with metallic shades, including silver, copper, rose gold and pewter to create a more glamorous and sophisticated look.

By opting for some of these trends, you can plan a stylish wedding of your dreams. However, whether you choose a vintage-modern style, a rustic one or some other theme, just make sure to find a way to express your personalities and make the big day truly yours.
