Want to stay on the pulse of what's new?

Curious what not-to-do for next year's weddings?

 

We chatted with celebrity wedding planner extraordinaire David Tutera to uncover what he'd love to see change in the world of weddings, as well as his recommended trends for 2017 brides. In the world of wedding trends, things are constantly changing, evolving and starting anew.

 

Ditch The After-Party


While you might be bummed to hear this at first, Tutera really believes guests should stay put, and you can bring the "after-party" to the party. "I want guests to stay in one location, and keep the energy escalating and flowing," he explains. The wedding is the main event, so why risk losing the party vibes with a venue change? Tutera suggests couples can, "create movement and energy in one environment with lighting, entertainment, opening up a different bar or dessert station, etc." We love this idea — the more "wedding time" the better!

 

Modern & Industrial Vibes

 

Tutera forecasts a mix of metallics and whites to top the palette charts of 2017/2018, but forget the golds and shiny silvers. Softer, brushed metallic popping from bright white accents are a color combo made in heaven, and will totally help to achieve those "contemporary yet city hip vibes" that will be so on-trend. Combine this color palate with industrial and modern touches for a fashionable yet classy look.

 

Stay Connected


Regardless of what trends, themes, or vibes you're going for, Tutera stresses the importance of remaining connected with your new spouse throughout the wedding day celebrations. "What's been happening is couples separate to their friends and don't hang out with their significant other on their celebration. That's not good. That's something I am trying to force people to understand is incredibly important." Noted!

 

Incorporate Paper


Whether it's in floral bouquets, incorporated into your big-day decor, or used as a way to preserve special wedding "memory moments," incorporating paper into your wedding day is quickly growing in popularity — and for good reason. Economical, potentially eco-friendly and unique in any way you use it, paper isn't just for wedding invitations anymore. Tutera says, "there's so many interesting things you can do," and adds, "People are sort of surprised, like oh my gosh, look what you can do with paper."

 

Ditch Receiving Lines 


"I am not a fan of receiving lines," admits Tutera. He adds, "I think it creates a large barrier of etiquette for that celebration — it's too formal." Instead, opt to greet your guests during cocktail hour, and throughout the night. It may not seem like it, but you will have the time.

 

First Looks 


These are a keeper. Tutera gushes, "I love first looks. I think they're brilliant. It takes me forever to convince a bride and groom to do that," but he adds, "They're more personal — I love them." We here at BRIDES can't help but agree. (And they make for stunning and heartfelt photos, too.)
