With the arrival of spring comes the full return of wedding season and some hot trends are already shaping up for 2017. Bridal Guide has been discussing some of the most prevalent ones they’re observing based on a survey of Pinterest boards. Here’s what they’ve noticed:

Pure Romance

Another popular theme in your Pinterest boards was simple, pure romance. From candlelit ceremonies to receptions lit by crystal chandeliers, this beautiful trend will melt your heart.


The vintage wedding trend is still going strong! It’s no surprise — there’s just something that feels so romantic about adding old-world items and antiques to your big day. Many couples opt to include family heirlooms within their décor, giving a personal touch to their vintage wedding.


We were blown away by all of the super creative themes we saw in your boards, from weddings inspired by the movie Up to a festive carnival. See more at Bridal Guide

Back To Nature & Relaxation

If you want to get married at the trendiest downtown hotel amidst the hustle and bustle of the city, go for it! However, many couples in 2017 plan to trade the concrete jungle for a more natural setting. Wedding locations and themes that connect with the outdoors are very big this year. If this is something that interests you, having your wedding and reception at Swan Manor is ideal. Here are some nature wedding theme ideas from Bridal Guide to get your creative juices flowing.

Butterflies & Birds

As the butterflies leave their cocoons and the birds return home, many couples opt to include nods to these fluttering creatures in their spring wedding décor — from bridesmaids dresses to cake toppers to centerpieces to place cards.

Embrace the Rainy Season

You know what they say — “April showers bring May flowers.” Be prepared for a rainy day, or add some creative touches to your décor, like upside-down umbrellas suspended from the ceiling.

Cherry Blossoms

One of the most anticipated times in our nation’s capital this season is when the cherry blossoms begin to bloom – and the blooming period only lasts up to 14 days. Incorporate these spectacular flowers in your décor, recreate them on your cake or, if you’re getting married in DC during the blooming period, be sure to take a few photos under the cherry blossoms!

Open-Air Transportation

Take advantage of the season’s warmth by riding from your ceremony to reception on a bike — either motorized or built for two. Keep reading at Bridal Guide
