OMG this wedding is literally like my Pinterest board!

If you’re lucky enough to have just gotten engaged (some of us are still eating cereal for dinner in yoga pants) then you might want to follow the hottest wedding trends of the year.

The Gift Lounge

This is the perfect place for guests to mingle especially at destination weddings! Think of it like a curio store where your guests chose their own goodie bags for a weekend of festivities. This is also a nice place to greet your guests when they check into the hotel for the wedding weekend.

Foodie Fun

Treat your guests to memorable food (because let’s face it, most of them are only there for the entrees).  The hottest trend for 2017 is to curate menus with Instagram worthy eats (think: cronuts or milk and cookies). Set up a doughnut wall with gourmet selections or treat guests to a full-service sundae bar.

Blooming beautiful

Newsflash, your flowers are the most important part of the day. The biggest trends for 2017 are soft petal blooms like peonies, garden roses, ranunculus and dahlias.  Peonies, in particular are in high demand, with planners noting that some brides will time their weddings to take place when peonies are in peak season.

Snap and chat

If you don’t have your own personalized Snapchat filter at your wedding you might as well kill yourself now. Wedding guests are loving the newest takes on the traditional photo booth.

Show them shoulders

Off the shoulder wedding dresses are the hot new wedding trend. The search for off-the-shoulder wedding dresses is up 158 percent.

I’m here to stay!

Statement earrings are one way brides are going to add glam to their wedding ensembles this year. You know what they say… ‘the bigger the hoop, the bigger the ho’ (or more trendy the bride).
