The International Wedding Trend Report 2017

written by


The countdown is over and we are excited to announce the official release of the third International Wedding Trend Report. As innovative educators here at the Academy, we pride ourselves on being well placed to bring you the most up to date wedding trends from around the globe. We have spoken to more than 50 of the most influential personalities in the business to deliver direct to you their trend predictions for the coming year.

International Wedding Trend Report

The report delves into how technology and personalisation in popular culture drives the trends, and which movies will influence couples design choices this year. The Pantone colour of the year Greenery is set to be big, as are pale blush and nude tones filtering off the catwalk’s ballet vibe. Nature is a big trend for 2017 and we will see lots of organic elements coming through. This years report also explores wedding trends geographically as we focus on what’s going to be hot for 2017 in Australia, the UK, and the UAE.

As part of the visual design of the trend report we really took it to the next level this year and featured six stunning styled shoots and photographs from our Academy studio floral design workshop. We were inspired by key trending themes of Boho Luxe, Green Botanicals, Mixed Metallics, Art Deco and The Great Outdoors, asking our contributing team to interpret these into the beautiful décor you see in our report imagery. In our forthcoming blog posts we will be publishing more of the gorgeous shoot imagery and introducing you to the talented teams that took part.
