5 Wedding Trends from 2017 that will Stick around Next Year

From marble accents to the rise and rise of gin, 2017 was an awesome year for wedding trends. 

Baby’s breath

Baby’s breath is commonly the understudy rather than the star in wedding flower arrangements. However, its delicate appearance has made it a popular choice as a beautiful flower in its own right, and not just as a filler. From the groom’s boutonniere or bride’s bouquet to gorgeous centrepieces, baby’s breath is finally enjoying the limelight.

Drip wedding cakes

Of course, the traditional almond wedding cake will always be a popular choice locally, but more couples are turning to trendier designs for their special day, the latest being drip wedding cakes featuring molten chocolate, caramel or icing dripping down the sides in the most mouth-watering way.

Gin bar

Stations at weddings are nothing new, but innovative drink stations beyond the usual cocktail bar are picking up, and gin is leading the way. Set up a self-service or manned gin bar, complete with a handful of different types of gins, tonics and other mixers, as well as a selection of complementary fruit and garnishes, such as lemon wedges and berries.

Marble décor

Elegant, classic and a perfect pairing with another trending colour, rose gold, marble accents can truly elevate a wedding to sophisticated heights. Be it in the form of candleholders for centrepieces or for wedding invites, it’s a naturally beautiful material that complements many a wedding palette.

Chalk art

Engage your creative streak with a spot of wedding DIY through a rustic, personalised chalkboard with a message of your choosing. Prop it up to highlight a food or drink stand at your wedding, to share your favourite romantic quote or simply to welcome guests with a bespoke sign displaying artistic calligraphy.
