The Colors

Pantone has already selected several Spring 2017 colors. Fortunately, these colors are the perfect options for spring so that you can find flowers, ribbon, and other decorative elements in these colors. The colors are Niagara, Primrose Yellow, Lapis Blue, Flame, Island Paradise, Pale Dogwood, Greenery, Pink Yarrow, Kale, and Hazelnut.

With both pastel and bright color options, you can create bold or soft looks by incorporating these colors tastefully into your wedding décor.

The Flowers

Classic flower table centerpieces will never go out of style. However, if you want to keep up with the trends for Spring 2017, make sure that you add a lot of texture when it comes to flowers for your wedding.

Selecting flower arrangements that look handpicked and as unarranged as possible is the best decision that you can make. A good mix of different types of flowers, that includes succulents and wood elements, is an excellent choice.

Dusty pink roses, peonies, anemones, and Japanese ranunculus are truly stunning options that will capture the attention of your guests as a part of the flower arrangements for your wedding. You should also incorporate greenery with minimalist vibes by adding leaves and branches to trellises, as part of the table centerpiece, or by weaving them into the guests’ chairs.

The Cake

The wedding cake is an essential part of the wedding reception and when it comes to wedding cakes for Spring 2017, spare no expense! If you want an eye-catching wedding cake, go for a stained glass wedding cake.

This is a great way to incorporate some of the bold Pantone colors that have been selected for this season. In addition, the colors could also be used to highly the delicious cake flavor underneath!

However, if you are looking for something a bit simpler, an offset wedding cake that has multiple tiers that are not set in the center makes for an interesting and unique wedding cake. Finish these designs with some edible flowers and you’ll have a gorgeous wedding cake that will attract a lot of attention!

The Prints

When it comes to selecting fabrics and your wedding favors, trellis patterns and toiles are very popular this spring. They will give your wedding décor a romantic look and will also allow you to play on the floral motifs that are very much in style this spring and may even be a part of your wedding dress.

You can also find these patterns in soft colors, which are the best ways to incorporate these prints so that they are not very distracting. If you don’t like the idea of incorporating such patterns into the fabric, look for decorative vases or tableware with these patterns, especially plates.

The Stationery

From wedding place cards to signs and wedding menus, you should incorporate the spring season into the stationery that you use. This will give your wedding stationery a unique and authentic feel.

Opt for handwritten style fonts that combine different weights. You can also mix and match paper textures for a luxury look. Adding wood or metallic colors will complete the stationery to extend a garden theme that is already present in your wedding décor or to create a more organic look if your wedding has an overall modern theme.

The Lighting

For spring 2017, romance is in and there is no better way to create a romantic setting for your wedding reception than using soft lighting. Tealights and string lights look just perfect when contrast with the gentle beauty of your floral arrangements.

In addition, you can also strategically place the lights so that they line the pathways for your guests to walk on if you plan to have an outdoor wedding. Indoors, string lights can replace harsh indoor fluorescent lights so that you can turn the lights on just enough to see while creating the ambience of a romantic starry night.

The Food

Wedding foods for 2017 have gone vintage. From craft cocktails to tea sandwiches, these options are perfect for a high-end wedding. Another trend that is very popular is miniature everything.

From soup shots to macaroons, going for tiny food options is the best way to impress your guests. You can also make it easier for your guests by making these foods into finger foods so that there is no need for silverware.
