Thus, to help you organise your ideal 2017 wedding, Nicola has assembled a small inspiration manual for you. From tea parties into Hollywood glamour, 2017 seems set for a year of incredible wedding motifs. We asked Phil from http://philwebbphotography.com/to share some words on wedding themes.


Colour Scheme: Gold, Bronze, Floral & Pearl

To bring a bit of English refinery for your wedding, consider everything Alice in Wonderland, with a bit of George Elliot interval glamour. Lovely ceramic tea pots, tea cups and saucers decorated with delightful floral designs can create the best tableware, and you can use classic silver accessories as the foundation for your centre pieces. For a bit of bizarre tea party glamour, utilise pearl beads as decorations to the tables or chairs.

In regards to the floral structures, keep it easy with a single floral arrangement per table, shown in a glass jar with ribbons, along with a handmade bouquet for the bride. Evidently, the wedding breakfast should be a delicious Afternoon Tea distribute, together with finger sandwiches, delectable cakes, scones and of course champagne. To get a fitting musical accompaniment- a jazz band is going to set the tone.

Nicola’s Top Tip: a sizable golden mirror frame is going to liven up your table program, and old luggage makes the ideal container for cards and gifts.


Colour Scheme: Mocha, Brown & Green

To get a pretty rustic themed wedding, consider hessian table runners and seat sashes and exquisite wooden centre pieces. To add a unique touch to your table structures, why don’t you attempt personalised wooden table confetti engraved with the names of the groom and bride? For the floral arrangements, how about a blossom crown for bride and jugs filled to the brim with wild flowers for the tables. For the audio, a harpist will create the excellent whimsical accompaniment.

Nicola’s Top Tip: Adorn the tables using a range of white candles and tea lights in different shapes and sizes because their soft light will give a dreamlike quality to your tables.

2017 will see the return of this traditionally elegant wedding. Believe candelabras; three tiered iced wedding cakes; beautiful bouquets brimming with roses; rose petals down the aisle; white seat covers; Patches with floral collars; along with a traditional piano accompaniment.

Nicola’s Best Suggestion: Stick to pink or white roses to your bridal bouquet, since these will be the most traditional options and symbolise love, beauty and joy.
