With the help of brides.com here are their findings for the wedding trends to look out for this year.

A Color Comeback
"Color is making a comeback, versus all-white weddings. We're seeing less floral and more props as well as hanging centerpieces and more lighting patterns in abundance."  —Nahid Farhoud,  Nahid's Global Events

Elaborate Entrances

"We are seeing a rise in  elaborate entrances  and we expect to see this trend continue into the New Year. This includes over-the-top décor as guests make their way to the event, as well as incorporating unique entertainment (think fire starters!) that grabs guests' attention."  —Fabrice Orlando,  Cocoon Events Management Group


Faraway Destinations
"While tropical paradises like Mexico, Jamaica, the Bahamas and Costa Rica still top the list of hot spots to tie the knot, we've seen  Iceland , Canada and  Italy  emerge as popular locales for couples looking to go off the beaten path."  —Megan Velez,  Destination Weddings


Planning Virtually

"Couples have gone fully mobile with their wedding plans. Millennials are all about instant gratification, so they want their  wedding planning  right at their fingertips at any given moment. There's going to be a continued increasing in seeing the whole planning process online."  —Li Zhou,  LadyMarry


Vertical Impact

"When it comes to wedding decor, couples are looking up for inspiration. They are taking advantage of the vertical visual space above guest tables and highlighting it with a number of options. Expect to see tall tapers paired with luxurious candelabras, low-hanging string lights or  Edison bulbs and chandeliers  in a variety of shapes and sizes in 2017."  —Audrey Isaac,  100 Candles


Garden-Inspired Florals
"With florals, we're going to keep seeing garlands, as well as  organic bouquets  and centerpieces, all of which have had tremendous staying power among brides."  —Jamie Chang,  Passport to Joy


Creative Ice Breakers
"Couples are looking for ways to engage their guests throughout the wedding day. Interactive  food stations  and lawn games are great for fostering engagement, as is unique entertainment (think fire eaters or contortionists!), which will give everyone something to talk about. We also love the idea of guests walking into a photo wall, either stationery or as a slideshow."  —Fabrice Orlando, Cocoon Events Management Group


Neutral Tones with Bright Accents
"We're seeing dreamy palettes of greys, creams and golds paired with glass and metallics."  —Audrey Isaac, 100 Candles


Doubly Gorgeous Gowns
"One thing I've seen for the first time this year that I expect to see more of are removable skirts. The bride can have a sheath dress look and a ball gown look for much less than the cost of two dresses."  —Ann Oleinik,  Ann & Kam Photography & Cinema


A Never-Ending Feast of Food
" Late night snacks  are becoming more of a 'must do' as opposed to simply an add-on. We're also seeing additional courses added to the dinner beyond simply a salad and entrée."  —Kevin Dennis,  Fantasy Sound Event Services
