Weddings are a hot topic. When you’re planning your own wedding, you want to make it as magical as possible. You want to celebrate your love for your new spouse at a party with friends and family. It’s also fun to keep with the latest wedding trends so that you have the best of everything on your special day. Here are some of the expected trends of 2017 for your wedding at the Crystal Ballroom in Metro West.

First Look Photographs

When your parents got married it was considered bad luck for the groom to see the bride before she walked down the aisle. Today, the hottest trend is to set up that first look in an informal setting where a photographer can make the most of that special moment. Instead of seeing the bride along with everyone at the wedding, this can be a special moment for the couple, and the photographer can capture that joy without being obtrusive.

Whites With Metallics

For this upcoming year, golds and shiny silvers are going to recede while brushed metallics on a white background are going to be all the rage. These colors add to the feel of an industrial themed wedding or one with a modern city feel. From decorations to wedding cakes, you can steer towards brushed metals from silver and copper to nickel and other metals to pair with white.


In 2017, you can expect to see more paper at wedding ceremonies. This eco-friendly material can save the bride money. From flower bouquets to decorations, paper offers many options to add beauty and a unique vibe to your wedding. Plus, it can help cut costs when the budget is already stressed.
