Weddings in all of their various forms, are as old as time. Although they have changed in rituals and traditions, the core value of uniting two individuals in love has not and will not ever change. There are hundreds of options that a couple must consider when planning a wedding. Will the couple organize their wedding around customs and traditions? Will they dig deep into their culture and pull out some oldies but goldies such as the hand fasting ritual or will they ride the wave of the hottest and newest wedding trends to arrive?
One of my favourite new trends arising is “the first look”. It has always been taboo for the couple to see each other prior to the ceremony. Some have gone as far as to claim it is bad luck, others simply want to save the surprise for the actual ceremony itself. As photographers have become a huge part of the wedding industry, and the art of photography has continued to grow and evolve, I believe this new trend began there. With the essence of capturing that first look, that moment when the couple first lay eyes on each other. This moment may just be at the heart and the reason for the entire gathering over all. For those couples that still believe in the taboo of it, photographers are getting very creative with their abilities to capture “the first look” without the couple even having a glimpse of one another by using barriers to viewing. Other more devious couples have the photographer capture the actual moment when their eyes first lay upon one another, prior to the event, in private, without an audience and without the stresses of the event. The pictures that are captured become real, unposed and of complete and utter love. This has been a pivotal change in tradition, and I believe may be one of the biggest trends for 2017.
As far as wedding themes, according to Bridal Guide, there are 5 trends that have topped the charts, and are anticipated to continue throughout the upcoming years.

All making for a memorable and cherished day to be enjoyed by the happy couple and their guests.
