2017 Wedding Color Trends


From budget-friendly Italian or English inspired greenery to an update on formal monochrome (Spoiler alert! It involves glittery gold!), wedding colour schemes for 2016/2017 are chic, sophisticated, fresh and completely fabulous ! The color that will be trending in 2017, “greenery” signifies a fresh new year, healthier food resolutions and growing vegetarian trends, according to the Pantone Color Institute.


A greenery theme can be integrated in to every part of the Big Day from invites to bouquets to the cake! Bouquets consisting of eucalyptus and simple white flowers will be a clean and fresh addition to the bride’s and bridesmaids’ looks, while garlands of greenery can be placed everywhere from archways to chair backs and even table runners for a romantic, organic feel.



Purple has always been a popular colour for weddings because of its regal, timeless feel but this is the year to mix up your shades and make it all the more modern. It’s fairly easy to integrate purple into wedding decor, and bridesmaid dresses take care of themselves, but take it up a notch by serving beautiful berry cocktails and topping your wedding cake with a mixture of fresh berries to really make your theme stand out.



Will you be the first bride to pick this color scheme? What color combo are you using for your wedding?

Wedding in Kingston

At Helen G Events we specialize in doing destination weddings in Jamaica but from time to time we do have local Jamaican clients and this client is especially special to us. This bride is beautiful through and through and trusted us implicitly to plan her wedding and handle the decor for her wedding in the hills of Stony Hill in Kingston Jamaica. Trecia and Joseph are the most loveable and easy going pair you will find and are loved completely by their parents and friends and planning with them was easy but challenging at times. But the couples easy going, fun loving attitude and love for each other overcame all that comes with planning a wedding when parents are involved. I am so proud of the end result.

Their wedding ceremony was held at St Judes Anglican Church in Stony Hill and their wedding reception was held at a private residence in Stony Hill. Their 150 wedding guests dined on oysters. Greek, Lebanese and local Jamaican menu items and an extensive full bar that last over 5 hours. We also created an extensive candy bar for guests to enjoy and the grooms aunt provided over 6 cakes are varying flavors and design in addition to the wedding cake for guests to enjoy.

A photo booth was provided  for guest to enjoy during the cocktail hour as well as a hookah lounge area for guest to smoke the night away.

We would like to share the results with you in this blog post:

Wedding Signs

Customized wedding signs are trending right now in 2015 and I think they are just fabulous. I love them.

Couples can express some of their thoughts and sentiments and have fun with their guests by getting customized wedding signs made for their wedding.

We did a couple of signs for a wedding in Ocho Rios recently and it was a big hit. Please see below:

Wedding Decor in Jamaica

Remember the days a crepe paper and balloons at weddings. I remember sitting up many nights folding crepe paper. Those days are long gone. As wedding decorators and wedding planners in Jamaica at Helen G Decor and Helen G Events we have seen wedding decor evolve over the years. Brides have become more sophisticated, educated and informed about what they want for their wedding decor for their wedding in Jamaica. This has been a major shift.

No longer does any bride want the same old thing that she saw done some many times at other weddings. Every bride now wants their wedding and wedding decor to be unique and an experience to remember. I actually love this. As planners, florists and decorators in Jamaica the main aim is to give clients what they want and that unique experience for their wedding and if they come already armed with pictures, magazines and books its helps.

Even when looking at our own portfolio we see the shift and change and how wedding decor in Jamaica has evolved. Even as florists in Jamaica we see clients making more informed decision re the type of flowers they prefer and brides know exactly what they want.

There is a saying that says you have to know where you are coming from to know where you are going. Below are pictures of some of my fave wedding bouquets and wedding decor we have done over the years for weddings in Jamaica:
