Wedding Venues & Color | 2017 Color Trends

2017 color trends will be bold and bright with vibrant shades of yellow, orange and bright coral accented by gorgeous blues and Kale green.  

You MUST always consider color when selecting your wedding venue!

It is impossible to design your wedding theme if your venue does not have clean lines and neutral colors. The days of planning events around unsightly chairs, rugs with a pattern or colored curtains are over.  The Commons 1854 is a boutique wedding venue designed to accommodate all colors.

Soft pinks & gold, organic and natural was the styled theme in this late fall wedding in 2016.  The decor was sophisticated, understated and perfectly complimented the ceremony, cocktail hour and ballroom at The Commons 1854.

Whimsical gold pumpkins flanked the card box with natural twine and clothespins.

The ceremony site! Ivory rose petals and simple lighting helped to create the romantic ceremony space! The Commons 1854 has light maple flooring, gold chairs with ivory damask pads, ivory sheers and curtains.  How can you go wrong with a venue like this?

The recessional moment is priceless!!!

The wide aisle with simple Maple Flooring help to create the perfect picture the moment that the couple realizes they are married!!!

Gold, ivory and cupcakes work well, especially with a neutral backdrop. 

We love the height of the 36" trumpet vase!

Natural menu cards in a simple pocket folded ivory satin napkin is a fitting addition to the tablescape with lenox bone china and reed and barton flatware.

Natural wooden table numbers added to the whimsical feel. For more of a f

The centerpieces were a mixture of highs and lows.  This design works well at The Commons 1854. 

Romance and bliss! 

Smores were the wedding favor!  

Love the purple uplighting for the dancing!

The photo opportunities outside The Commons 1854 are extensive!  This historic Gould Barn and Parson Capen House on site in the historic district of Topsfield make for a gorgeous backdrop regardless of the time of year.  


We loved the pop of purple from the bridesmaid dresses!

The sweetheart table was set in front of the ballroom fireplace which was the perfect backdrop for the toasts and speeches!
