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…

Sweet treats

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!

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.
