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.

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?!
