Brides-to-be! We have the top wedding trends of 2017 that are sure to provide you with the inspiration you’ve been looking for!

The beginning of 2017 has been busy at Pedersen’s. Two of Seattle’s biggest wedding shows featured our rentals, along with designs from leading industry professionals. From golden accents to dreamy seasides, we are excited to show you dream wedding décor ideas.

Weddings in Woodinville and I Do Sodo were the big wedding shows of the season. Both shows highlighted eight venues with over 100 industry-leading vendors. The shows provided sneak peaks of the venues and provide inspiration to designers, couples, families, and brides-to-be. Not only are attendees inspired by the beautiful designs, they also get the opportunity to meet with leading wedding professionals from the area. If you missed these great shows, fear not! Read on to discover our favourite designs and wedding venues in the Seattle area:

Weddings in Woodinville

We are so excited to have had the opportunity to take part in Weddings in Woodinville each year and 2017 was no exception. Each venue was unique and full of designs that ranged from traditional elegance to gothic geek.

Gold Delicious at Willows Lodge

Willows Lodge is located on five acres of flourishing gardens by the Sammamish River. It was host to a beautiful table design highlighting a big 2017 trend – gold accents. In Jacky Grotle’s “gold-declicious” theme, she incorporated gold accents with Pedersen’s Gold Square Chargers, Gold Satin Napkins, and Brushed Gold Flatware. They were paired with our Classic Square White Plates and Winelovers glasses including the wine, fine goblet and champagne flute.

Gothic Geek at Red Hood Brewery

If you’re planning a non-traditional wedding, the design from Red Hook Brewery is sure to inspire you. The ‘Gothic Geek’ theme was full of creative lighting, video games, and even featured touches of Star Wars and Deadpool! Rebecca from Blue Celebrations used Pedersen’s Black Chivari Chairs & Silver Candelabra’s to create this dark romantic ceremony design.

Dreamy Seaside at Columbia Winery

In contrast to the quirky designs at Red Hook, the Columbia Winery venue featured traditional minimalist designs with seaside accents. Jen from Jen Leslie Events paired the beautiful color palette of dusty blue, sage green, and cream with our Vineyard Chairs to create this intimate ceremony. The design had a beachy romantic feel that had many brides-to-be swooning.

I Do Sodo

I Do SODO is Seattle’s newest wedding show, which held its second annual event in February. All eight SODO locations have an architectural charm and feature blends of wood, metal, and concrete in new and vintage construction. Our rentals helped make the second year of his event a success!

Black and Gold at Canvas Event Space

Canvas Event Space was one of our favorite venues of the show. The table design goes away from the light tones that are seen in traditional weddings. Megan Clark from Clutch Events used our Black Chivari Chairs with Shantung Black Runners to create a pop of contrast in this stunning tablescape. The design draws the eye to the length of the table and also does a great job at showcasing the place settings as it makes them pop.

The place settings in this design feature our Woven Gold Chargers and Brushed Gold Flatware, which add a touch of colour paired with our Stoneware Linen and Black Plates. Our White Hemstitch Napkins with Square Gold Napkin Rings and Modern Wine and Water Glasses add the perfect final touch bringing the entire design together. The floral is by the talented Bash and Bloom.
