Let’s Look at the Hot Wedding Trends of 2017

Creating a wedding and reception that reflects the unique character of every couple we work with is something that comes naturally to The Charlotte Wedding Company. Our all-inclusive wedding packages cover all the bases so you can sit back and relax on your special day, secure in the knowledge that everything has been handled. Visiting with your guests and cherishing every moment is easy when you’re working with experienced professionals who deliver everything you’re expecting.

Wedding planning for 2017 is well underway for couples from coast to coast and some clear trends are beginning to emerge. You may want to consider incorporating some of these ideas into your own celebration or, even better, adapt them to fit your personal style. Let’s take a look:

Fun Floral Trends for 2017

Our wedding packages include your floral needs from bouquets to boutonnières, centerpieces to aisle decor. Greenery and natural items including wood, branches, palm fronds and ferns add earthy delight, can be extremely affordable and offer endless creative possibilities.

Amber Glass

Bud vases comprised of amber glass add a richness and nostalgia to any spread. Single unique flowers or even sprigs of ferns are all they need to be a beautiful addition to the reception.

  • Succulent Accents
  • Amid soft, full flowers, succulents lend texture to wedding centerpieces and are a particularly great option for simple color palettes. Bonus: If you are trying to have an eco-friendly celebration, the more succulents the better!

Dutch Inspiration

Dark iron vases bursting with blooms and whimsical greens make for an ideal combination that has been praised for centuries, dating back to the great Dutch painters. This style of arrangement has made a major comeback in recent years, and with good reason. Loosely composed for an unruly feel, they are the perfect bridge between a natural and traditional approach to wedding florals. More details at Martha Stewart Weddings

Digest These Delicious Trends

The Charlotte Wedding Company delights in delivering the catering and bar services you desire. Our food and beverage offerings can support any wedding theme or culinary direction. Signature drinks and DIY dessert bars or build-your-own food stations are easy to incorporate into your big day. Popular food-related ideas for 2017 include:


Get creative with your menu by choosing a theme to work around. Maybe an ode to bread, chocolate, salt, or bacon! Pick your favorite foods and curate a menu using different variations of those ingredients

Lose the Fork

Finger food isn’t just for kids anymore! Eliminate the need for silverware with skewers ranging from fun to elegant. From fruit to salmon to mini pizzas — we think that anything can be served on a stick!


Did someone say breakfast for dinner? That’s something we can always get on board with! Flaunt your love for bacon and waffles by serving breakfast at your reception. To avoid it looking like a local pancake feed, jazz it up by serving skewered waffles with sausages alongside of a maple syrup shot. Yum!

Edible escort cards
