We love looking ahead to see what the year has to offer us. And we think 2017 will be a year of clean white minimal chic, sweet treats and natural colour palettes, amongst others. We’ve picked just a few of our favourite looks that we think are going to be hot this year.
Shades of white…
Strip away all the frivolity and frills, and focus on gorgeous, luxury, simple styling. Make it look effortlessly chic and keep all the attention on you…

Naked cakes are so 2016…
…so this year, naked cakes are covering up! But only slightly. You’ll be wanting a semi-naked, barely iced beauty, like these.
Elegant, chic… and sparkly! Photo: Flower & Fondant Designer Cakes

We think party portraits are going to sky-rocket this year. Having a painted memory of your special day is something to treasure forever.

We’ve all seen the banquet style dessert table, but this year, grazing is going to be ramped up a notch – sweet treats galore! Mini desserts, doughnuts and popcorn aplenty – the options are nearly endless! It’s just so fun to let your guests help themselves to a little bit of what they fancy!

Mix it up with metallics
We’re going to see plenty of shimmering metallics this year. Golden thread, silver embellishments and even daring bronze gowns – you’ll certainly shine.

Lovely lush florals
This year, you CAN NOT have too many flowers gracing the walls, chairs, ceilings, even in the tables. Floral decoration is a marvel on the senses, creating the perfect aroma and most beautiful sight.

This year, technology will add itself to the list of must-haves for your wedding. Decor, cake, even your dress won’t go untouched by tech with projection mapping high on the agenda.

A wedding with an industrial vibe is all the rage. This year, warehouse luxe is where it’s at. The combination of elegance and roughness makes for a visually stunning celebration.

In the buff – neutral palettes
Blush, rose, buff…. tones of nude are so on trend this year. Added to a floral feature, decor or dress, this shade softens a white wedding and adds a touch of luxurious elegance, enhancing any wedding day.
