Did the love of your life propose to you over the festive period? Or perhaps you’ve been engaged a while now, and are hoping to plan your wedding this year.

Well, to help you get inspired we’ve been busy looking at the top wedding trends for 2017. From the colour green making a big impact, to fun games, there are plenty of wonderful trends to choose from. So get your wedding planner at the ready, and start taking notes.

Garden florals

Continuing on from 2016, you can expect to keep seeing a rise in hair garlands as well as organic bouquets and table pieces. Blending rich forestry greens with dusty pinks and peaches, this is one trend we never want to let go. Plus it goes beautifully with our Marquee wedding venue, set in the Warwickshire countryside, which is the ideal location for anyone hoping for a summer union.

Goodbye cake

One thing you can expect to see in 2017 is the exit of the traditional wedding cake. More and more couples are choosing cupcakes, doughnuts and even cheese over a cake, so why not think outside the box? Hey, it might even save you time and money.

Brides double up

Another trend is for brides to wear two different dress styles across the day, so one for the ceremony and one for the evening. An affordable way of achieving this double look on your special day is by purchasing a removable skirt, which can leave you with chic sheath dress-look for the night’s celebrations.

The colour of love

Pantone’s colour for 2017 is officially Greenery, and this sentiment is being echoed across plenty of fashions and trends, including weddings. From emerald floral arrangements, to dusty olive bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen suits and even sage-tinted wedding invites, green is definitely a colour you’ll be seeing more of this year.

Fun and games

If you’re looking for a fun way to break the ice between your guests, you’ll be happy to hear that introducing games to your big day is one of the latest wedding trends. From field games like rounders or cricket on the Coombe Abbey grounds, to rainy day puzzles, word games and colouring in, having fun is the best way to cut out any awkward introductions between guests!
