Let’s talk centerpieces
The 2017 wedding trends are calling for brides to step away from florals and move closer to the natural world. The idea is keep things minimal by mixing up textured woods, greenery, and neutral tones with a hint of a few Bohemian vintage elements.
And for those who just can’t do without flowers, freshly-picked, wild bouquets will bring in that organic, rustic element. For a more dramatic effect, consider hanging a canopy of greenery that’s suspended high above your guests’ heads.

As metallic accents are a huge trend this year, think tall gold or mat silver vases for the centerpieces, filled with greenery or with fruit spilling out of it, place cards branded in gold or silver cursive and romantic flickering half-melted candles housed in chunky candelabras. Couple that with a little old-world beauty and elegant family treasures, such as old photo frames, a stack of old books, antique clocks, keys and lacy items, and the wedding immediately has an authentic, archaic touch, whilst adding a meaningful, family touch to the day. The rule of thumb is that whatever you place in the centre that you should be able to see the person sitting across from you.

The advantage of these trends for 2017 is that this simplistic, natural effect can be easily achieved with minimal effort. If you use what you have at your disposal by raiding the gardens of friends and family, and visiting aged relatives for family heirlooms, you can turn your special day into a memorable and treasurable occasion!
