2017 Wedding Trends for Destination Weddings in Italy: Sustainable Weddings with a Personal Touch 

In 2017 everything will be a bit more natural and, above all, more sustainable. This is also reflected in the wedding decoration and wedding reception food ideas.

Regional and seasonally available flowers are placed as table decorations, and again more regional products appear on the wedding banquet menu. Bridal couples are increasingly looking for authentic Italian plain fare, as well as typical Mediterranean floral decorations for weddings in Italy.

Vintage Wedding Dresses

It is also sustainable when purchasing the wedding dress. Brides resort more and more frequently to outlets selling second-hand wedding dresses. The advantage here is certainty that real treasures are also available here for little money. Since many trends last for several years, there is no danger of the wedding dress being unfashionable. You can see unusual lace dresses again on the catwalks, which were pepped up this year by colour elements. With a few simple touches, each bride can produce these little highlights herself. Matching ribbons, flowers and beads from craft shops provide the solution for this, for example.

Do It Yourself: 2017 Wedding Trends

And this is also one of the great 2017 trends: Do it yourself. Homemade invitation cards, and hand-written signs are just some DIY trends of the year. This gives the weddings a very special and personal touch this year. There are also small DIY stations for the guests during the wedding celebrations. Perhaps for already existing photo walls or even screens on which the wedding guests can immortalise their good wishes for the bridal couple. All ideas are welcome here, and also the guests can greatly participate.

This is why the small, very personal details are particularly important this year. With regard to the wedding planning steps, the individuality of the bride and groom is predominant. From culinary preferences to personal emotional music to performances from the ranks of the wedding guests, the wedding couple’s experience and memories are the rule.

Yet little, unusual aspects are not missing for the 2017 weddings. As a special eyecatcher, couples increasingly hire food trucks for the wedding parties offering, for example, delicious BBQ specialties instead of a strict wedding table. It is possible to casually stroll between the trucks in a comfortable way. This trend is particularly beneficial for large wedding parties, as the guests have more chance for conversations and the need for a strict table layout is dissolved.
