Ten Wedding Trends 2017 that will make your planning experience stress free and ditch old school traditions that can bog you down or ruin your wedding.
Ten Wedding Trends 2017:
Skip the receiving line. No one does this anymore and it’s a time killer.
Establish relationships with your event professionals, rather than their price sheet. Budget is always an important consideration, however, once you establish a relationship, it will be more meaningful in the long run and will yield more value.
DIY is great for party favors and creative details, but make sure that you hire an event planner, who can help you to save money, time and help keep you stress free.
Before you sign any agreements, including the venue, please make sure that you know your maximum guest count and budget. Without these two factors, you are asking for a disaster.
Choose your venue wisely according to the season, geographic location and your budget constraints. If you live in an area that has seasonal fluctuations, you want to make sure that you can financially and physically handle any challenges that come your way. Don’t gamble with one of the most important days of your life.
Are you thinking about the pros and cons to having kids at your wedding? This is a tough call, but an important one. Imagine you and your fiancé are saying your vows and a baby is crying in the background because that is what innocent babies do. If you must go down this road, think about having a hotel suite or special room setup with licensed and insured babysitters for mommies and daddies to bring their babies on your important day.
What will your guests remember the most at the end of the day? Being comfortable, spending time with you and good friends and good service at the venue.
Late night snacks are great for fueling your party. When your guests think that the party will be winding down, this will add an extra element of fun and take your party up a notch.
Dark suits remain a timeless fashion statement, however, designers are adding embroidery, geometric or floral designs to stylish vests to allow the groom and his crew to stand-out and express their fashion sense.
Remember to have a good time and do what feels right for you and your partner. This is your chance to have fun your way – it is your wedding.
