2017 is looking to be an exciting year to get married. Wedding trends are aiming to be truly engaging. We have oodles of design perspectives to share and give your wedding the ‘Dreamwave treatment’.
I have catalogued below what I feel are the coming wedding trends. This focuses on our specialist industry of DJ and Lighting, Décor and venue styling…
Industrial Warehouse Weddings
Wedding Trends of 2017 are honing in on the rustic theme with an interesting twist; concentrating on an industrial notion. It is bringing warehouse style weddings combining metallic colours and décor along with geometric designs. This along with a splash of floral or other decorative femininity makes the ideal mash up between macho and elegance.
Using a venue that already has more of an industrial look and feel is going to be popular this year. The permanent architectural features such as its brickwork walls and supporting beams can be used to highlight this theme making a perfect canvas for décor and lighting.
With this said, by adding elements of industrial design to any venue or space is also possible. A good example of this is our steel cages. These can be placed around a ceremony or reception then filled with either festoon belts, hanging lamps or candles.
The Metallic Revolution
Whilst always being steadily popular, the eruption of metallic features and colours are fast becoming a primary concept of wedding themes of 2017. When using the glamorous vintage tone of copper, silver and gold used along with the correct warm glow lighting; you can form a metallurgic sensation!

Continuing with the industrial theme wedding trends there is a focus on geometric compositions. The placement of copper/gold Terrarium with their angular shapes and corners look awesome when set on table centres. These urban looking and detailed vessels can add a mini botanical feature to your wedding theme. They can either be filled with plants, foliage, LED candles or battery fairy lights. Our friends at Festive Lights have a large range of these Terrariums for sale.
Structures, Hanging Wonders, and Feature Areas
A clear forerunner and key focal point in this post is the wedding trend up-rise of feature design areas such as suspending structures and centrepiece displays.
Suspending structures take advantage of un-used space above heads to give an optic punch. Especially relevant is our purpose built Rustic Chandeliers with hanging Edison bulbs. This has been growing in popularity and is a notable attribute for a special occasion. Our Chandeliers come in various sizing and styles to suit your desired look and theme. Working with florists and merging our expertise to complete the design as a whole to tie in all the elements together is a must.
I chatted to Bev from Jades Flowers about this trend and how floristry is going to trend this year. She had this great information…
‘Hanging florals and foliage is a trend that looks set to continue throughout 2017. There are numerous ways to add impact to a ceiling to create a jaw dropping, unique display that wows guests all day and looks simply spectacular in photographs.
Ceilings can be adorned with anything from floral chandeliers, tree branches dripping with hanging flowers and either light bulbs or meters and meters of garlands made from sweet smelling eucalyptus and rosemary.’

This overall industrial theme mixed with an array of mesmerizing floristry not only makes this approach extremely rewarding; but when this combination of manly and dainty design styles are used together, they result in fabulously balanced décor.
Concepts such as macramé (knotted criss-cross deigns) backdrops or even a vibrant coloured panel of ribbons make for an impressive canvas to direct the focus on dedicated food stations and interactive guest experiences.
The huge surge in wedding trends is to use reclaimed wood to adorn feature areas. Amy and her team at Anthology Vintage Hire are experts at this. They can construct quality themed areas to make your day unique. Following this theme, we also have our new DJ Tables made from reclaimed wood to tie in with this rustic affair.
