Furry Friends

Idaho photographers have seen many wedding trends a cute pup make their way down the aisle as ring bearers. There was even the bride who had her bridesmaids carry adoptable puppies instead of bouquets. In 2017 our pets will play an even bigger role in upcoming nuptials. “From bunnies and goats to llamas and pigs, couples having rustic barn weddings are incorporating farm animals into the wedding day,” says The Knot.

Today’s couples want a wedding that will blow their guests away. One of the keys to an unforgettable event is the choice of venue. Any place with a large plot of land or a distinct barn or building will allow couples to really make their wedding unique and help them tell their personalized story.

On a Sugar High

After the last few years of pies, cake pops, and cupcakes, there’s been a strong shift back to tiered wedding cakes. There is something nostalgic about a wedding cake.

In an effort to entertain wedding guests, couples are turning to the tried and true: games. From interactive Mad Lib wedding programs to lawn games at outdoor cocktail hours, games are being used as a way to break the ice between guests. This playful trend is a great way to get your friends and family mingling and make great photographs. Just stay away from lawn darts.

Bold Colors

Color is making a comeback to weddings after years of pastels. From boysenberry, to royal blue paired with yellow, to lilac and violet, and peach with orange. Decorate with bold patterns, glam it up with gold details and have fun with it. Overflowing blooms, billowing fabrics and a barely frosted cake with berry embellishments will bring everything together. Photographers do love strong bold colors.
