If you’ve ever heard of the phrase, “New Year, New Me” the same goes double for weddings. In a marriage, two people go through one of the biggest changes in their lives, committing themselves to their significant other. Much like society, these events have evolved into their niches, styles, and genres over the past centuries, but certain trends are making their claim in 2017. If you have a creative block for your wedding planning, check out some of the hottest wedding trends for 2017.
If your Orlando marriage is in the summer and you want to avoid the harsh weather, image mapping can be a great, techy alternative. Image mapping is when a projector shoots high-resolution photos onto the walls of an enclosed space. This effect can make an indoor wedding feel like a cherry blossom forest, a winter wonderland, or a day out at the beach without having to worry about the sand!
Food trucks have exploded in popularity over the past several years, so it’s no surprise that their presence has carried over to wedding ceremonies. Instead of going for the usual chicken/beef/vegan choices for dinner, hire some food trucks to serve unique food for your guests. When else will you be able to have an oyster bar and a cheese expert in one place? If you opt in for an outdoor wedding, food trucks are a great option.
Perhaps as part of the staying healthy trend, more married couples are passing on desserts covered in frosting for something more minimalist. Translucent cakes are often iced in a light layer of cream and topped with sweet fruits or vegetables. Your dessert won’t be completely dry, filling packs many of these snacks.
More couples realize that not all of their guests want to stand, talk, and drink all night. Throwing in some games can help start breaking the ice for groups of people that don’t know each other. Your wedding games can complement your theme. Celebrate everyone dressing fancy with a game of Polo (without the horses).
Open Air Photo Booth
While having a hired photographer can help catch some of the natural, subtle aspects of the wedding ceremony, nothing captures the energy better than a photo booth. Open air photo booths are relatively new additions that allow up to 12 people to share space in one booth, dressing up in props and adjusting filters to show off how weird they can be. As popularity continues to rise, more photo booth companies are looking to diversify and see how they can stand out from the competition.
