Wedding trends to watch in 2018

With a new year comes new trends and designs in the wedding world to fall in love with. So we’ve compiled a list of wedding trends to watch for and incorporate into your big day in 2018! 

Balloons are back and bigger than ever!

Gone are the days of kitschy balloon arches seen only at graduations and retirement parties! Now we are seeing a huge trend at weddings of flowing, oversized organic balloon garlands available in every colour you could possibly want. These balloon garlands are amazing as an accent feature on your arbour but also as an over the top, wow factor ceiling installation or trailing down the centre of long banquet tables.

Move over Neutrals!

This year’s trends are set for a move towards brighter and bolder jewel tone colour palettes – some of our favourites are teal, navy, burgundy, and the colour of the year - ultra violet. Not too sure on a bolder colour palette? Try adding small pops of your chosen accent colour through linens, florals or glassware. Feeling brave? Go big with a statement ceiling draping or bridal backdrop and cocktail lounge furniture to give your guests something to talk about for days to come! These statement colour palettes promise for some creative Insta-worthy wedding style trends for brides everywhere to fall in love with.

Coral, agates and crystals oh my!

For the modern wedding, there is huge popularity with brides now to go for centrepieces with a twist.  We’re seeing centrepieces filled with natural elements like coral, crystals, feathers, and quirky botanicals mixed with candlesticks and textured table linens to create unique centrepieces. Personalised agate slice place cards and table numbers are another way you can add this new trend to your wedding table in the New Year.

Make it your own

In this social media filled world, how can you take your wedding to the next level to make it different from all others? Customise it, of course! We’ve all seen couples with their own wedding hashtags, but why not it take it that one step further? We’re seeing more and more couples create their own monogram and bring it through all elements of the wedding process. Think wedding invitation stationary, seating charts, customised napkins, dance floor decals, neon signs and hanging name signs for behind your bridal table. There’s no limit to putting your own stamp on your wedding – literally!
