May is here, marking the beginning of the 2017 summer wedding season. As the sun comes out over the next four months, so too will the dresses, veils, flowers, and table designs. So what are the top trends that we will be seeing this season? The Arabian Tent Company shares their top five fashion forward wedding trends of 2017 so far.

1. Go green

Pantone’s colour of year is 15-0343 Greenery, a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that is representative of nature. Expect to see a lot of greenery throughout the 2017 wedding season, from huge tumbling foliage installations in the ceiling to foliage tie-backs, Astroturf bars, and grass floors. This will be counterbalanced using soft voile fabric and fairy lights to create a magical midsummer night's dream effect.

2. Industrial chic

By using traditionally-utilitarian materials as decoration, many people are adding an extra edge to their wedding aesthetic: think scaffolding tables, pallet furniture, and hessian covers. This look works even better when textures are contrasted, such as draping fur over rustic wooden pallet furniture. As more and more industrial inner-city spaces open up for private hire, it’s easier than ever to find a venue that fits the industrial chic theme.

3. Stunning chairs

Chair designs have developed somewhat since the gilt banqueting variety of the 80s, and this year chair choice is every bit as important as the rest of the wedding décor. Hamptons-style oak cross-back chairs add an air of rustic elegance to any marquee, whilst the classic Chiavari chair looks elegant when draped in chiffon white with added foliage.

4. Pimp your drink

Designed to encourage more interactivity, ‘pimp your prosecco’ bars are popping up on more and more Pinterest boards. Simple to set up and totally customisable, a prosecco pimping bar consists of prosecco, fruit, fruit juice, and various types of bowls and pitchers. Wedding themes can easily be incorporated into the décor, such as using rustic mason jars with handwritten labels and hessian table runners.

5. Dangling décor

Floating or suspended decorations can uplift an otherwise dowdy venue such as a barn or village hall, as well as drawing attention to high ceilings. Hanging foliage adds an instant rustic, natural feel to any venue, whilst pom poms or paper lanterns will make any location seem colourful and fun. If you are hanging florals, remember they will begin to wilt after a couple of days so ensure they are one of the last things you do before the big day.
