Less is more, or so the saying goes. But for 2017 weddings it’s definitely true. This year you should try to avoid ostentatious ceremonies, overly frilly dresses, floral overkill and keep things, simple, chic and sophisticated.
Think minimal. Keep the dress soft and feminine, with long straight lines. Let the small details have a big impact.
For flowers, choose one or two favourites and build your displays around these.
Carry on the theme across the wedding, with uncluttered tabled settings and elegant invitations.
You should also try and stick to a limited colour palette. Think neutral tones and try and avoid big bold colours or clashes.
Think about creating one big design statement rather than lots of little ones. People don’t always remember the centrepieces but they will recall a room lit up with hundreds of candles as a lighting statement.
Ideally, you want your carefully chose details to stand out, not get lost amongst all the bling and glitz. It’s all too easy to get carried away, but remember to keep your design choices simple.
