With the new year approaching and engagement season in full swing, we think an update on what type of 2017 wedding trends you can expect to see is in order.

If you are like most brides and start your planning by choosing your “color”,  Pantone’s choices for 2017 are a great place to start!









































With THE color choice being Pantone’s Greenery, we at Wed With Style LOVE any shade of green and are thrilled to report that any shade of gold is also on trend in 2017!

We will also see more “theme weddings” this new year as well.  As for decor and flowers, cascading greenery will be a popular choice.

Ready to think outside of the box for your stationary? Well you are in luck! Inviations will have more of a “3D” appearance incorporating ribbon, hand drawn crest, wax seals and calligraphy will remain a must.

Wedding Party Gift Ideas

I frequently get asked by my brides (& grooms) for gift ideas for their wedding party. I want to share a few of my favorite gifts. I love supporting small businesses anytime I get the opportunity and handmade items are a plus!

I came across the hand-crafted jewelry line “Bare and Me” on Etsy. There are SO many beautiful items to choose from that can be personalized as well.

These druzy necklaces would look spectacular with any style bridesmaid dress:
















Personalized cuff links are a great gift for your groom or his groomsmen: 











I have to mention how adorable the packaging is for these gifts! I just might have ordered something for myself 😉

The ladies at “Ellen Jay Stylish Events and Sweets” are known for their delicious sugar cookies and who doesn’t love a cookie?!

How cute are these cookies to ask your girls: 

These also make great wedding and shower favors: 

Ellen Jay can customize a desert bar or design your wedding cake for your big day as well! 

In my opinion art is the gift that keeps on giving! Chandler Hines of “Chandler Hines Art” is extremely talented.

These gorgeous trinket dishes can be customized to your wedding color(s) or your attendants favor shade:

Chandler can also customize a 4×4 or 5×5 painting on canvas:















No matter what choice of gift you give your wedding party, a unique, custom or handmade item always is a nice way to give a more personal touch.  Please let us know if we can offer any assistance in finding that just right “something” that reflects your appreciation to your friends and family as they celebrate your special day!

After the pull the charms are normally kept as gift by those who participated. The charms can be ordered from many online sites such as Etsy.
