8 Top Wedding Planners Predict 2017’s Biggest Trends

 

Trends and weddings usually don’t go together. Why? No bride wants to look back at her wedding pictures five years later and regret that bubble-hemmed gown. But once trend-related mistakes are avoided, there’s something to be said for embracing the spirit of the new—and having an affair that feels cutting edge. So as wedding planning revs up for many brides-to-be, we reached out to eight top event planners to hear their predictions for 2017. A return of color, and greenery especially, in lieu of the all-white wedding was noted virtually across the board. But to hear the experts elaborate further, and to learn a few more hypotheses, read the below.

“Guest don’t need to wait until midnight for the traditional rice-toss or sparkler moment. Brides and grooms are looking for the celebration to begin with the first kiss. Whether that is followed by a confetti blast, fireworks, or marching band, the celebration is starting at the ceremony. The other big one is large scale installations. For example, filling a ceiling with drapery, flowers or even floating orbs will add a sense of wonder, creating a beautiful and long-lasting memory.” —Bryan Rafanelli

“I think vivid and high-tech lighting techniques will become even more affordable and therefore will be more utilized by designers. I also think more lounge seating will added around dance floors and on outer edges of the room to encourage guests not being stuck only at dinner tables.” —Marcy Blum

“Brides and grooms will recognize more that their ceremony is the sacred part of their celebration, but that the reception afterwards is a party. And like any party, it can be fun, theatrical, expressive, and whimsical. Traditions can be altered, personalized, or ignored altogether. Yes, many couples will still want to cut the cake, while others will opt to serve ice cream sundaes from a cart.” —Bronson van Wyck

“Trees! We’re seeing a huge interest in trees of all kinds—from olive to citrus, cypress to birch. I love the impact of their scale in a space, and whether rented or purchased and planted in the ground after the wedding, trees are a wonderful antidote to disposable wedding décor.

I also think we’ll see after-party transformations. It used to be that an after-party consisted of a DJ coming on to replace the band at the end of the night for an hour or two and ‘the young people’ would dance on. But 2017 will see fully developed after-party themes that stem directly from couples’ personal loves. Electronic music festivals? Your favorite cabaret hot spot in Paris? A beach party in Mykonos? This is the time for everyone to let loose in a new environment that has become a full-on focal point of the wedding night for the entire crowd.” —David Starkhttp

“People are moving away from stereotypical ‘wedding venues’ in exchange for locations that more special and rare. Think an alfresco meal at a long dinner table in front of a historic mansion, or tents on top of a cliff overlooking the ocean in Big Sur. These are the types of immersive experiences people now want their guests to have. It isn’t just about having a wedding, it’s about transporting guests to something magical, and allowing them to experience to something once in a lifetime.” —Alison Laesser-Keck and Bryan Keck

“We’re going to see a lot more greenery in place of abundant wedding flowers. Flowers will certainly never go out of style, but this year they may have to move over for bright and beautiful leaves. It doesn’t hurt that Pantone supported this movement by electing Greenery as the Color of the Year. Also, hiring an expert mixologist to make unforgettable artisanal cocktails for you and your guests will be the experiential cocktail hour every wedding in 2017 requires.” —Colin Cowie

“Nighttime ceremonies. So long to sunsets and welcome dusk. This means lighting and candles can become the focal décor element and not necessarily the florals.” —Yifat Oren

“As much as we love neutrals, a big splash of color is exactly what we’ve been wishing for the past few years. We’re very excited to be incorporating more color in every element of our weddings in 2017.”
