We are doing a tropical theme. We both love the colors and the wamth of the tropics and it’s gonna be on Galveston Island, so it works very well for us. It’s kind of a destination wedding, we live in the area but family is coming in from up north. It’s gonna be indoors and not at the beach.

We’re on the tail end of Rustic over here where I live. I think by now some people still really like it but it’s so overdone that it’s just fading out.
I think the next trend will be more of a romantic theme. Trendy spaces that have a very romantic feel, soft lighting, gold, etc. I dont know if that’s really a theme but we’re seeing satin come back and lots of lace backs on dresses, layers of tulle. Just seems like that’ll be the next thing. Trading burlap for elegance

Il post again here 🙂 my theme is a starry night. Midnight blue,silver, pops of glitter and candlelight and Fairylights!.
My invitations are based on this and i have my cities skyline at the bottom with recogisable buildings as the backdrop. My bridesmaids are wearing blue chiffon dresses with blue sparkly accents and my venue is by the water with the view of the city which lights up, and it has a 360 windowd view with a fairy light ceiling. Sorry for big photos!!

Mine is outdoors but I can’t stand the rustic look. If done well it can be great but I just feel like no one does them that well. I am doing a vintage country look. I like the vintage feel and I want to being in the outdoors. I just don’t want to have the typical brulap and alce themed wedding so im getting rid of those.

- Wedding: July 2016 - Volunteer Park and the Stimson-Green Mansion
Rustic is still going strong in the PNW, from what I can tell. Once you drive east of Seattle, you can’t throw a stone without hitting a farm or barn that hosts weddings.
It’s not really a theme, but I bet we’ll start seeing more glam weddings. Think 1920s/Great Gatsby, gold sequin bridesmaids dresses.

Where I am (NYC) it’s all vintage glam and industrial chic. Bistro lights and edison bulbs are getting a workout. It’s the Brooklyn brand wedding.

Does anyone watch “Girls?” One of the characters had a highly-clichéd rustic wedding. Something out of an Edward Sharpe video!
I’ve seen a lot of garlands instead of traditional floral centerpieces, and more rectangular tables instead of round ones. Bold colors on invitations, but also more drapey pastel dresses.
I don’t see smaller, more intimate weddings as part of a trend. On websites, Pinterest, and Instagram we see the big weddings. Part of it may be permanent, as people get older and they contribute to more of their weddings. They aren’t obligated to invite everyone they may have when their parents were paying for the whole thing.

“Now I don’t want our wedding to be a 7 year old boy’s dream birthday party” LOL I understand the feeling!

I think I know what’s troubling me about the venue. The chairs keep putting me off the room. If i can work out some sort of color scheme that I like I can get chair covers and match the sashes with the color scheme. I am liking the glittery gold in a previous posters pics. Maybe I can take away the floral centrepieces and put something else in its place. Any suggestions?

Omg, I finally found what I am looking for:
Thankyou all so much for your suggestions and Just the general chit chat, I wouldn’t have come across these gorgeous colours without hearing ‘glam’, ‘gold’ and ‘glitter’. now I just have to hunt down these gorgeous rose gold table cloths

In rural Oregon I think the theme will ALWAYS be “rustic” – as in Mason jars, burlap, lace, barns, and chalkboards. This has been going on for the past 8 years or so and it’s still going strong. I’m hoping more unique weddings will start happening and a trend won’t emerge more so than any other particular theme.

I feel like a term I guess I would assocaite with not only my wedding theme, if I had to give it a name, or others I am seeing is “Preppy” or the “Pottery Barn” look. I think it has been around for a while, but there are some differences.
Like when I see black tuxes I think traditional, or classic and even you get into the glamourous with the venues and overall style being combined in the mix.
But navy suits, gray and then with the pops of color or navy blue bridesmaids dresses or even kelly green is making a come back I would associate that with preppy because of the standout colors palettes. You can also group the venues into this too, country club, golf course, east coast house, but really I think the color palette and overall style lend to the preppy look. Nautical or beachy although it works on its own, could lend to a more preppy look if not overdone with the sea shells and such.
The stripes, bold patterns, classic patterns I think work into this as well.
Our wedding the bridesmaids dresses are navy blue / royal blue like in between, but a more relaxed summer style. Black tuxes for the Guys (FI wanted them in all black) light pastel colors and the color palatte of white, navy, coral orange and champagne accents I think lends to the preppy side. It is at a golf course too but Fiance and I both like golf so it worked out.
Just my thought, but I think more brides are playing with a bold color and two neutral colors and it can lend itself to “Preppy” and I think we will see a bigger play on this in the future especially with people looking at the colors of the year.
