6 Wedding Trends for 2017

February is prime engagement season, with 38% of proposals happening between Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day, which means that wedding season is right around the corner. Your Cleveland, Ohio wedding ceremony and reception should be everything you want it to be. Here are some of the top wedding trends for 2017 to get you inspired for your upcoming special day.

1. Metallic Dresses with Breezy Silhouettes

What comes to mind when you think about the wedding dress? More than likely, the dress you conjure up an image of is crisp, clean, and snow white. In 2017, this classic perception is no more. Instead, wedding dresses are going metallic. It's all about the shine and shimmer, with gold thread and silver beads, and a light, breezy silhouette. Metallic dresses make a bold statement, but are still sophisticated enough to fit in perfectly to a formal affair.

2. Nature

Wood Candle CenterpieceYou don't have to hold your wedding, or even your wedding reception, outdoors just to incorporate nature into your 2017 wedding. You can just as easily bring outdoor elements indoors with your décor and create the perfect enchanted forest. Woodsy elements can be incorporated in your centerpieces and tableware. You can even create a unique guestbook by having everyone sign a wooden plaque. You can even go one step further and have a tree printed on the plaque and have guests sign the leaves.

3. Keeping the Environment in Mind

Going along the theme of nature, 2017 is all about being environmentally conscious and reducing your carbon footprint. Some great ways to have a beautiful wedding while still keeping the environment in mind include printing your invitations on recycled paper (or writing them with soy-based inks), turn your place settings into favors (such as small cacti), give out seed packets as favors and donate leftover flowers.

4. Fun Games at Your Reception

There's a good chance that many of your guests don't know one another. In 2017, that's about to change. Playing icebreaker games at your Cleveland wedding reception will help to get both sides of the family involved and having fun. You can even take it one step further by making personalized icebreakers about you and your new spouse, which are sure to make for fun guessing games.

5. Entertainment

Simply hiring a DJ or a band are things of the past. For 2017, wedding receptions are all about guest entertainment. Sure, you can still have music (because who doesn't love to dance at a wedding reception?), but you can really wow your guests with some unique forms of entertainment. Hire some live dancers, a tarot card reader, or acrobats. With live entertainment, you are sure to leave your guests with unforgettable memories.

6. Translucent Cakes

Naked Wedding CakeThe naked wedding cake has decided to throw on a light layer in 2017. Translucent cakes are taking over. Instead of completely naked and exposed layers, a barely there, thin layer of frosting lets the cake show through just ever so slightly in a tasteful and gorgeous fashion.

With a little bit of inspiration from 2017's wedding trends, your Cleveland wedding, and wedding reception, will be unique, fashionable and unforgettable.
