With each passing year, wedding trends come and go. If you’ve ever looked at your parents wedding photos, you probably saw a lot of lace and a lot of volume. If you had family that got married in the early 2000’s, you probably saw a lot of strapless gowns and sequins. With 2017 in full-swing, weddings and engagement rings have started to develop new trends.
Colored Stones Stick
The fact that colored gemstones are trending for engagement rings is no surprise to us. As we’ve mentioned, colored diamonds are in high demand and now, potential brides are demanding them too. Many blushing brides will likely be making a bold statement in 2017 with a colorful engagement ring. From a colored diamond to a unique sapphire piece, colored stones are making their way into the wedding industry and onto ring fingers.
Get the Groom’s First Look
Honestly, we can’t look at what photographers are referring to as “first look photos” without getting emotional. This upcoming trend is something we are in full support of, especially if we get to see the end results. “First look photos” are when the photographer takes pictures of the groom’s reaction when he sees the bride for the very first time. It is done before the wedding in a private setting, where the intimate moment can be captured with no interruptions. The reactions are so sweet, and maybe it’s the Valentine chocolate talking, but we can’t even.
Rope Rings Reign
Another engagement ring trend that you can expect to see in 2017 are rings with intertwined bands. These rings almost appear to have two different bands, with each one looking slightly different when compared to the other. For instance, some of the band might have stones while the rest of it might be relatively plain. The band of this engagement ring looks very similar to how a rope would, making the focus of the ring your stone in the center. For many people, the rope style band symbolizes two lives becoming one, and we think that idea is exceptionally sweet.
Brides Go Greenery
Flowers were often “all the rage” at weddings, but weddings in 2017 are likely going to be filled with lush greens instead. Brides are tossing petals aside and choosing to highlight the basics. Many brides in 2017 are expected to go the “simple” route with their wedding décor, which has been a common theme in the past few months. Weddings are likely going to be filled with different shades of green such as moss, eucalyptus, and so forth. Flowers had their moment to shine, and 2017 brides are shifting them from a focus to a detail.
