New Wedding Decor Trends

From florals to flatware and everything in between, there are so many different wedding decor trends to keep in mind when planning your big day. As engagement season and a new year arrives, see what trend Fearrington Wedding Planner, Gilda, is keeping an eye on.

If cuisine is one of the more important details in a wedding, the place it is served and displayed must be essential. In 2017, keep an eye out for a rise of truly special, handmade tabletops. “Especially in destinations such as NC with a pottery heritage known world-wide, nothing more striking than a farm-to-fork meal served on a table set fully with local, hand-made pottery,” said Gilda. “The perfect mix of a wholesome, natural look paired with the elegance of fine craft sets the tone for a sophisticated but unpretentious style.”

Gilda suggests pairing a unique tabletop with tumbling floral designs of unusual, earthly colors and lots of candlelight to create a fresh look that stands apart in the vast array of wedding décor.
