2018 Wedding Party Trends

Keep it simple and stress-free in 2018. Many are opting to have 2-3 wedding party members or consider just having the maid of honor and a best man. Not only will this make fittings and meetings easier to coordinate, but it will also make it much easier to get through pictures.

2018 Wedding Venue Trends

Garden weddings or outdoor wedding venues have been a huge trend for at least a decade. Couples today are now switching it up, they love the outdoors, but hate the unpredictable nature of taking their ceremony outside.

Indoor Garden Wedding Venue | Woodland Weddings | 2018 Wedding TrendsMany couples are bringing the outdoors inside, and finding venues that have an outdoor feel, but indoors. You will still see rustic-chic weddings, but couples may add a hint of industrial or woodland to their event space.

2018 Wedding Flower Trends

Greenery is more popular than ever! Freshly cut foliage and succulents in potted plants will truly bring out a natural and harmonious touch to your decor that will tie everything together.

Another emerging floral trend is, “dark and dramatic”. Pair your greenery with dark colors for a subtle, yet elegant look! Expect to see dark hints of purple, such as, wine, lilac, and mauve in 2018 floral arrangements.

2018 Wedding Hair and Make-up

The best advice any wedding planner can give you for your wedding day look is to make sure you hire a professional hair and makeup team to make you look photo ready, and that you pick a hairstyle that you are comfortable with. If you wear your hair down, then pick a style that is mainly down, and updos for ladies that wear their hair up for most of the day.

Depending on your personal style your makeup shouldn’t overshadow your overall look, pick colors that are natural.

2018 Reception Trends

Small and full of surprises – receptions have been transforming into small experience filled events that are exclusively for the couple’s closest family and friends.

How to Wow your Wedding Guests | 2018 Wedding TrendsUnlike previous years, the dinner and drink menu has become increasingly essential to the reception. You will often hear guests say “the wedding was great, but the food was terrible!” Focus on picking a menu that will “wow” your wedding guests.

We’re also seeing non-traditional receptions, with casual cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres and no sit down setting. Couples want their guest to feel like that are at a posh party, and able to move around the room and mingle.

2018 Wedding Décor Trends

 The most popular trend last year and this upcoming year is going back to basics and keeping things natural. Think marble stone accents, lots of plants and foliage, and mixed with metal accents.

You will see more silver in 2018. Rose gold and bright gold have been the star of recent years, but silver will be on the rise this year. You will also see mixing of metal types.
