We caught up with some of the biggest names in the bridal industry to learn all about the new trends for this spring. Here's what they said:
Laura Sebulsky of Beautiful Blooms: Pretty Pastels Coupled with Metallic Accents
"With the 2017 spring wedding season about to bloom, we are predicting soft pastels, whites, and champagne petals, mixed with brushed metallic hardware that brings this divine yet modern, warm, and classy design together. Adding touches of greenery throughout the room will enhance this look that welcomes the warm spring weather!"
April Cohen of April Lynn Designs: Take Your Guests on a Journey through Custom Invitations
"Because custom wedding invitations can be created to match a pair's unique style and color palette, I feel they will continue to become more and more popular as newly engaged brides and grooms see how much their piece can truly reflect their personalities together. Plus, couples want to create a complete experience for guests from the moment they receive their invites until the moment they leave the reception, and custom wedding invitations allow the experience to start right when guests open their mail!"
"When done well, silk florals are less expensive and environmentally friendly. With everyone trying to 'go green,' and with the cost of weddings continuing to sky rocket, silk is the way to go! Couples get more for their money and can afford to do things on a grander scale to create a 'wow factor' during ceremonies and receptions."
"This spring bridal season is all about simple, chic, and sophisticated. Many designers are celebrating the modern bride with clean lines and crisp fabrics. After many years of lace trending heavily, this new movement gives a really fresh feeling to bridal gowns—this is captured very well in the Colette gown by Louvienne."
"Brides and grooms are really looking to add an outdoor element to their wedding day. More couples than ever are utilizing the urban courtyard at Vie for their ceremony, Cescaphe Ballroom courtyard for cocktail hour, and then there are [even] couples going for the full outdoor reception at Water Works."
