    Wedding Trends 2017: Classic and Elegant

    One of the trends we are seeing emerge for 2017, is the return of the classic, elegant wedding. Think beautiful candelabras, beautifully traditional wedding cakes, peonies and roses in bridal bouquets, soft pinks, whites, creams and accents of gold. This is a theme that will look timeless in your wedding photos as you gaze back in decades to come, it is a theme that is ageless and stunning in its simplicity.

    If you’re marrying or having your reception in our Ballroom, you’re already half way to perfecting this theme. With the ornate furnishing, high ceiling, pretty Chiavari chairs and gorgeous chandeliers, very little décor is needed. The key to this theme is not to overdo it.  

    While this theme is classic, you can definitely add elegant contemporary touches, a three tiered cake with a single layer in a gold looks stunning. Candelabras make the perfect centrepiece with this theme, one of our couples dresses them in foliage and baby’s breath and draped strands of crystal on them. Small vases of roses or tea light holders with single peonies also look beautiful. You can dot lots of tea lights on tables too.

    When it comes to the wedding bouquet, peonies and roses in dusky pinks and whites are as romantic and classic as you could possibly get. If you’d like to lower the cost of the bouquet, it’s worth speaking to your florist about filling it out with baby’s breath.

    Touches like table plans on pretty mirrors, lanterns lining the aisle and soft draping all add to this theme. If you’d like to speak to one of our team about planning your wedding, please email our Wedding Manager Carly on carly@thecityrooms.co.uk
