Wedding venues are now not at all limited to floral decorations. Of course, flowers still have their special place but they are integrated with lots of greenery in different forms. It could be small green patch with the patio, or a lush green garden venue –the year 2017 will showcase lots of greenery which will definitely make an impact in your wedding photographs.

5- Faraway Destination Weddings


Having a wedding at a faraway destination is one trend that is bound to follow from the last year. Many couples are now opting for destination weddings that take place in some of the tropical paradises of the world. The only difference is that this year, couples will also go off the beaten path and head towards Canada, Iceland, and Italy.

4- Drone Photography


Aerial shots of the bridal party took off last year and will continue to hover above the guests this year as well. Traditional photography and videography will still hold the fort but drone photos of the venue, guests, and everything is an add-on.

3- Customized Menu


Whether it’s the starter, the main course, or the dessert table – couples will opt for menus that suit the taste buds of all their guests. Since the wedding party is a combination of guests from all age groups and ethnicity – couples nowadays customize menus that are filled with the traditional items but with a twist.

2- Handcrafted DIY Invitations


Although, the modern society does everything over the virtual platform –couples still like to send out wedding invites through the traditional post mail. A bit costly than sending invites out through emails – wedding cards sent through postal mails are more personal and give a better insight to the guest at what to expect in the wedding. Additionally, couples are also trying their hand at handcrafted invitations rather than printed ones. For this calligraphy is the ultimate choice which most couples are doing by themselves through YouTube tutorials.

1- A live band


Yep! The wedding singers are back in wedding trends for 2017. Depending on one’s budget, couples are choosing live bands to set the mood on their after party rather than hiring a DJ. Live bands are expensive, but they surely keep the party rocking until the wee hours; and accommodate to keep multiple generations happy.

These were just some of the hottest trends that are making the rounds this 2017. Uniquely You Planning has covered all the latest trends for your upcoming wedding.

Which ones would you choose for your wedding?

Color of The Year 2017 – Greenery

Pantone recently released its Color of the Year for 2017 — and we’re back to just one color this year! It’s called “Greenery,” and — you guessed it — a gorgeous shade of green.

A vibrant, bright (but natural!) hue, Greenery is definitely an eye-catching color, but not in an obnoxious way. In fact, the color is described by the Pantone team as fresh, calming, and meant to inspire new beginnings.

Every year since 2000, the company has chosen a color that reflects the current cultural climate. In the following year, the color has historically influenced trends in all facets of design—architecture, interior décor, fashion, food, travel—the list goes on.

Greenery signifies beginnings: a fresh New Year; healthier food resolutions and growing vegetarian trends; grass and the outdoors during spring and summer.

But most prominently, the yellow-green hue (specifically, Pantone 15-0343) comments on the concept of “environment.”

Most obviously, “environment” today refers to the “go-green” movement—which, while not a revolutionary idea in 2017, has reached a crescendo this year.

To help you “go-green”, we have created an alternative to wedding invitations, by offering wedding websites. Click Here for more information.

Along with the unveiling of the color of the year, Pantone created a selection of 10 palettes pairing Greenery with neutrals, pastels, brights, deeper tones, metallics, and even the two 2016 colors of the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity.

Ultimately, Greenery calls to mind the ‘re-’ words: refresh, revive, restore, renew, replenish, regenerate, rejuvenate, reinvigorate, re-oxygenate. Design is an outlet for all of these fresh beginnings. And the yellow pigment in Greenery references the sun, the symbolic light that people need in these times.

Happy Planning!!!!
