The Hottest wedding trends for 2018

 In advice, Tips, Wedding Trends

If you are newly engaged, planning an entire wedding may look like an enormous task. However, exploring wedding trends can greatly help with the planning process and give you lovely ideas to work with. So, without further an ado, let’s have a look at the latest and hottest wedding trends for 2018.

Pantone color of the year – Ultra Violet

That’s right; violet is back and looking better than ever! The Pantone color of the year basically sets the tone for coming wedding trends. Look for ways to incorporate the color in your décor, flowers etc. Remember, the color doesn’t need to dominate your color scheme; subtlety is key. Violet blended with soft gold tones and green isn’t an awful combination.



Copper Accents

Rose gold has dominated wedding trends for quite a while but it seems rose gold has moved up to make space for copper. The great benefit of this material is that it’s quite affordable and reflects beautifully in candlelight so be sure to go for copper tea light holders and elements that will reflect in the candlelight.

Playful dessert table

Serving dessert as a third course is so last year. Many brides are now seen setting dessert tables laden with macaroons, doughnuts, meringues, and candy at their weddings. Give each guest an empty box and have them make their own dessert box as a wedding favor. 

Impressive hanging floral installations

Who said flowers need to go on tables? Quite a few brides have started experimenting with hanging floral installations in 2017 and we expect to see more of this trend in 2018. Don’t be afraid to push the limits of creativity.

Floral elements on wedding dresses

Further adding to the highly feminine and whimsical themes predominating 2018, quite a few wedding dresses are seen adorning 3-D floral elements these days. This addition simply elevates your average wedding gown.

Be transparent

In 2018, we are likely to see a rise in the addition of see-through decor and settings. Transparency is probably one of the most versatile elements you can incorporate in your wedding without the concern of it ruining your theme. Think glass, light spaces, tablecloths with mirror elements, huge windows… the ideas are virtually endless.

Quirky menu offerings

If you were looking for a reason to spice up your old lamb stew and spring roll menu offerings then 2018 is your chance to go wild. Brides have been seen to mix Mexican flavors with Japanese inspired cuisine, portable pizza ovens and even food trucks at their weddings.
