Today we’re continuing our recap of all the fabulous trends we’ve spotted in 2016 with gorgeous wedding decor as seen throughout the pages of Brides of Austin! This year has been full of creative and colorful decor all centered around celebration. These are just a few of the decorative trends we loved this year and hope to see carried into 2017!

Unique Abstract Backdrops

Looking for a new trend to make your wedding stand out from the rest? A creative, eclectic backdrop is the perfect way to add style and personal flare. The trend has gone beyond the altar to the cake table, lounge area, head table and stand alone focal pieces. The design opportunities are endless!

Floral-Adorned Signage

Last year’s trending signage was filled with calligraphy, and this year’s trend was floral-adorned signage pieces. We love the colorful addition the blooms and greenery add to the decor!

Styled Bars

The newest rental trend sweeping weddings this year has been styled bars! Your guests will be frequenting this area all evening long, so you might as well make it a focal piece! Use extravagant blooms, hand-made artwork or unique rental pieces to create your own special station.
