2016 has been an AMAZING year for event design and the styling trends just keep getting better! 2016 was the year of gold & blushes, the year of geo-shapes, and the year of explosive & organic greens. It's been STUNNING! 2017 promises to be just as creatively inspiring. We'll see the 2016 trends just mentioned holding strong through the upcoming year, but we've identified 3 MAJOR trends that will really explode in 2017.
In this 3-part series we'll discuss each of the trends in turn. Today, Let's talk about the first major trend for 2017. Trees!!!
Preston Bailey started the trend of bringing as much of the outdoors in as possible in his wedding designs. Many designers have followed suit and the art of incorporating trees into the wedding decor has been on the rise in brilliant forms for the past few years. In 2017, expect to see trees getting larger and more grand as they become an ever-greater feature of many couples' designs. We'll see designers adding flowers, chandeliers, and other opulent details to enhance the designs.
The symbolism of the tree is beautiful and inspiring and I love the little-known tradition for couples to plant a tree together as a part of their wedding celebration. I don't know that many brides want to dig holes while wearing their brilliant white wedding gowns but this is something that could be done as part of an engagement celebration or, since many couples are opting to spend their wedding mornings together these days, before everyone changes into their formal-wear.
Stay tuned for Part 2 of our Event Design Trends 2017 series!!!
