2018 Color Of The Year - Ultra Violet - The Pantone color of the year has been revealed! And this is always a big indicator of what's to come in wedding trends... Last year's color of the year was Greenery and we saw an influx of brides opting for green decor within tablescapes, installations and bouquets. 2018 is all about Ultra Violet purple. So expect to see plenty of purple floral inspiration, as well as invites and table decor; like napkins and plates, plus new-age addition like crystals. Ultra Violet will pair well with Gold or many other metallic as well.
Quirky Dessert Tables - While we’re still obsessed with our wedding cake or alternative - doughnuts and macaroons, 2018 will see more brides going for a dessert table over the traditional last course. This way you can get really experimental. Choose cheesecake, meringues, multiple flavors of cookies and you can even add a wedding trifle into the mix! This way, everyone gets more dessert - what’s not to love?
The Color Copper - Moving on from rose gold accents, 2018 will see similar metallic touches in the form of a more industrial look copper. The great thing about this material, is that it’s super cheap! But looks so effective - especially when reflecting candle light - so lanterns and tea light holders will be key. You can also incorporate copper details in cups, cutlery, chairs and even ribbons. The effect will particularly look great for an autum wedding color palette.
Black Accents in Wedding Gowns - You might think the idea of incorporating black into your classic white bridal look is madness, but when you see how the designers have done it, you’ll see it gives a modern and effective monochromatic twist, that will add drama to your day without fail. Take inspiration from Vera Wang, Marchesa and Reem Acra Spring 2018 bridal collections.
3D Florals in Wedding Gowns - 2018 brings in a whole new season of wedding dresses and we’re seeing a lot of romantic flowers adorning otherwise fairly minimal gowns and veils. For inspiration, look to Viktor & Rolf or Oscar de la Renta, who have nailed the whimsical feel perfectly.
Transparent Elements - Wedding Planner & Blogger, Charley at London Bride (london-bride.com), tells us 2018 will see a surge in see-through settings and décor. ‘Everything from the venues themselves think Glasshouses, or light bright spaces with full windows to Perspex hanging seating plans, tablescapes featuring an abundance of glass details with printed goods on semi-transparent paper. Great for modern and minimalist couples who like clean lines.
New Food - Modern couples are more often opting out of the traditional 3-course set menu for their wedding breakfast. Instead, choosing food they love – from big sharing plates to food vans and portable pizza ovens, wedding food is definitely seeing a change. For 2018 we predict more alternative options like Mexican, Japanese and Peruvian inspired cuisine – with tacos, sushi and ceviche on the menu.
Wedding Wreaths - Not just for Christmas, wreaths are becoming a popular alternative decoration for weddings across all seasons. Wispy grasses, sweet smelling eucalyptus and wild flowers, these bohemian rings will have your guests impressed by your modern flower installations!
Cutting The Guest List Weddings are getting smaller. With couples opting to leave off relatives they haven’t seen for years, choosing more intimate gatherings with the people that matter most. This also cuts the wedding budget considerably, meaning extra cash saved to afford everything you really want.
