Top Wedding Trends Reflect Home Design Directions
May 16, 2017,
CHANTILLY, Va.—This year’s weddings are being marked by bold color pairings; natural, earthy tones; and a new twist on the farm-to-table trend, according to Cort Events, a furniture, lighting and accessories rental company.
Bright colors on white or other neutral base are on-trend
As the wedding season kicks into high gear, Cort Events has an inside look at the top 2017 wedding design trends, many of which may mirror or further influence home furnishings. “The best wedding designs should capture both today’s trends and remain timeless as albums are shared and passed down through generations,” said Kevin Dana, executive director of marketing and product development for CORT trade show and event furnishings. “This year’s wedding trends offer new twists on classic styles, such as adding bold accent colors, adopting a natural organic theme, and incorporating a mix of textures and materials—a nod to mid-century design which has become a design staple.”
Leading the top wedding design trends for 2017 are:
• Weddings Go Au Natural. With Greenery as the Pantone Color of the Year, earthy vibes are popular across event design, including weddings, and the au natural theme is one of the biggest of the year, Cort said.
• Modern Meets Industrial. Rustic, farm-to-table trends are sticking around, with a twist. “We’re seeing the same rustic woods and greenery this year, now paired with marble and metallics for a more refined look. The designs feel more modern, and eclectic. The mixture of materials, including black metal with natural woods and shiny metallics create a surprisingly sophisticated urban vibe that is more accessible to today’s Millennial couples.”
