Wedding Trends to watch for 2018

Overall a more personalized experience that encompasses the bride and groom and who they are as individuals and as a couple is the trend for 2018.

Wedding Style - Bohemian is in! Expect to see a ton of macramé and plenty of vibrant colors this year.

Wedding Colors - Hues like Burgundy, Plum, Ultra Violet, Apricot, and Butter Yellow are making an entrance.

Wedding Flowers – Greenery is still in (Rosemary is becoming very popular as well as dogwood). Moss walls are the new floral wall and many couple are opting for Flowers that hang from the ceiling above table tops instead of on table tops. Cascading bouquets are making a comeback with a bohemian look and feel.

Food - Themed food displays are a lot of fun and much more personal than the traditional chicken or beef. Try a local favorite or a food that is unique to your wedding location.

Beauty – Brides are embracing their features and opting for a more natural look with Natural make-up and hairstyles

Menswear – Three piece suits are the new tux and vests and suspenders are the new suit. Tuxes are still the classic choice for more elegant vibes.

Gifts and Favors – A well designed welcome bag goes a long way and in 2018 couples are spending more money on them and less on wedding favors.

Elements - Gemstones, crystals, Rocks, geodes, and marble are in. Rose gold, chrome, silver and really all metals are trending as well.

Trends to leave behind in 2018:

  • Couples are ditching the Father/daughter and Mother/Son dances. We personally, are sad to hear this one

  • Wedding Party members divided by gender. Mix up your party in 2018

  • Sparkler exits

  • Save the Dates in the mail (opt for sending them electronically or some other way)

  • Wedding color palettes are becoming a thing of the past. Couples in 2018 are more concerned with theme and/or style as the binding element
