1. Macrame backdrops
These offer the perfect mix of a luxe and boho set-up and we can’t see it going away anytime soon.

2. Green weddings
And we mean it literally. We’ve been seeing an increase in weddings opting for fillers, succulents, and other plants instead of flowers. (See 14 bouquet and centrepieces ideas here, as well as 13 ideas for a flower free wedding)

3. Tropical-inspired celebrations
No matter which part of the world you’re at, it seems tropical weddings are big now, and we foresee it’ll only get bigger in 2017. Plus, glamorous gold pineapples and adorable tropical touches such as large calligraphed leaves as menus won’t get old. (See how this real couple celebrated their tropical Hawaiian nuptials.)

4. Ceiling decor
Instead of putting all your focus on centrepieces, decorations are now headed upwards. Think lush floral arrangements, quirky lanterns, and more.

5. Geometric celebrations
From ring pillows to cakes and floral decor as well as ceiling decor, if you’re looking for a theme that evokes minimalist chic, this is it. See here for more ideas

6. Alternative wedding arches
Deconstructed designs are now a big hit with couples everywhere, and it’s not hard to see why.

7. Drip cakes
I’m personally a huge fan of cakes, but there’s something about the drip cake that makes it even more alluring. If you’re like me, you’ll be looking forward to this in 2017.
