The hottest 2017 trends for a beach wedding!

Bridal fashion week 2017 presented some very interesting hair and makeup trends for this season, from pink eye-shadow and matching lips to shimmery cheeks. However, when talking about trends we have to keep in mind that the Riviera Maya has a tropical climate, most ceremonies are at the beach, its a very humid weather;  so we have to pick the trends that work well in this setting. So lets talk about some of the wedding trends that we are very excited about and how these trends have been used in our local Tulum weddings!

 Strobing

We are really excited about a makeup technique called “strobing”. Strobing is the new contouring; is all about getting the perfect glow, using highlighter in a way that catches the light in the right places (cheek bones, nose bridge, etc). It looks fabulous in pictures!

Greenery

Believe it or not, the biggest floral trend for 2017 is no flowers at all! Instead, brides are choosing simple arrangements of leaves, branches or palms, inserting lots of greenery with minimalist vibes.

This is also true for the flower crowns and bouquets, and here are some examples on how the brides are rocking these trends right on the beach!

Greenery crowns

If you were dreaming of that boho-chic wedding and you pictured yourself wearing a flower crown, well we have good news for you! Crowns are still in fashion this season, and they are even better! Adding a punch of green and a couple colorful flowers it just turned out to be a perfect trend that you can rock in your beach wedding!

Bouquets & decorations

Talking about adding this splashes of green to the wedding, this year the trend is to replace the flowers in your bouquets and in the general decorations with just beautiful leafs and foliage. We wanted to show you how beautiful these green decorations look with the turquoise Caribbean ocean as a background!
