With summer drawing to a close and fall weddings gearing up, we’ve already seen so many amazing 2017 wedding trends that don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, which is fine by us! Here are some easy ways to incorporate all this wedding goodness into your registry so you can enjoy for years to come.

Greenery. LOTS of Greenery.

Greenery definitely got extra love this year by being named Pantone’s color of the year, but it has been a top trend for some time. Whether you’re going for boho chic or classic elegance, green is an excellent neutral that easily anchors any color scheme.

A great example of how to incorporate this trend was the creative use of greenery woven into a pendant light at our Private Registry Event in Indianapolis earlier this month. Palm fronds, fern and ivy worked together to create this stunning statement piece.

Beyond having fresh blooms in your space, you can even sneak pops of green into your furniture!

Metallics for Days….

Sparkly hues of gold and silver are staples in the wedding industry, and you can work them into your registry and home, too. The easiest way is with your flatware and stemware.

Natural Accents

As we move from summer to fall, don’t be afraid to incorporate seasonal elements into your home decor. Mix florals with things like leaves, twigs, berries, and even vegetables for a unique juxtaposition of style, texture, and color. Artichokes and berries were incorporated into a lush and textured floral runner at last month’s Hingham, Massachusetts Registry Event for a relaxed, yet elegant look.

Geometric Shapes and Patterns

2017 is all about tailored lines and bold patterns mixed with lush, organic floral and industrial accents. From furniture and light fixtures to stemware and flatware, these strong geometric statements are stunning in your home. Our Indianapolis Private Registry Event showcased the angled structured of our Tour Glassware Collection and the pyramid shape of our Lillian Brass Metal Lantern as an eye-catching contrast to the textured greenery.
