Newly engaged? Congrats!!!
Now it's time to start planning. With 2017 less than two months away, we're going to share with you some trends for the upcoming new year.
Bring the after-party to your guests
Instead of forcing family and friends to travel for your wedding, reception AND after-party, why not bring it to them! Hold the entire day in the same location and instead focus on changing the lighting, music, and entertainment to keep space varied and the party going!
Look for metallics to stay in style but add more brushed silver for an industrial vibe. To soften the decor, add touches of bright white and while mixing in some color. Look to the stores like design mecca Restoration Hardware as a guide for ideas.
Forget the receiving line
This tradition has become old and dated. Instead, have a cocktail hour where you can meet with your guests as a couple. It has a much more fresh and modern feel and who wants to wait in line when you could be celebrating?!
Incorporate paper into your day. It can be part of the decor, bouquets, or something for your guests to head home with. This trend is economical and it can also be eco-friendly. One of our favorite backdrops is made entirely of paper flowers. It's always a big hit!
