Go Green, Like, Really Green

While bringing the outdoors in has always been big for wedding décor, next year planners believe couples will look to create even more of a garden-like atmosphere at their wedding ceremonies and receptions. Forest-themed celebrations are also slated to be popular.

Look to your wedding venue and wedding date for inspiration, about what kind of flowers and potted plants will look most at home. And keep in mind that when it comes to plants, more is really more!

From tablescapes overflowing with potted succulents in a variety of vases, to additions of moss, tree slices, and other woodsy touches… don’t be afraid to go a bit over the top, when it comes to greenery. You’ll create a beautiful and calming atmosphere.

Be Inspired By Industrial Elements

Not everyone can, or wants to, get married in an empty warehouse. That said, more and more modern couples are looking to industrial settings as décor inspiration for their big days. What does that mean? Look for metal vases and candleholders that are a bit rusted. Incorporate recycled wooden pieces like storage crates and shipping pallets, as makeshift food stands and painted signs. Basically, let shades of patina shine through.

Vintage, Eclectic and Bohemian Touches Will All Be Big

If you are looking to create a truly one-of-a-kind celebration then consider incorporating vintage touches, like mismatched lace tablecloths, or collected china pieces in a variety of designs. Looking for items with a unifying color palette, or a similar theme (like a variety of floral prints for a spring wedding, or mismatched plaids for a winter wedding) is a great way to ensure the look is eclectic but still cohesive.

Another way to keep things fun and unique is by mixing textiles from different countries, with other elements from across the globe, such as Moroccan-inspired lanterns and fine British glassware.
