THE TRENDS THAT WERE 2018!
Updated: Jan 9, 2019
Getting hitched in 2019 and need some serious inspo? We've got the low down on the hottest trends from 2018 to give you a kick start.
The good news is greenery is here to stay and we'll be seeing plenty more oversized and unstructured bouquets and decorative arrangements.
2018 wedding trends see bright bold florals with couples embracing colour as well as texture. From a styling perspective ceiling installations will continue to be a major feature with florals mixing with lighting to create visually spectacular focal points.
An increase in texture will also come from the use of interesting vessels. Whether it's greenery in Bell Jars, vintage cut glass or geometrics the vessel will be as important as the arrangement.
Marble, copper and geometrics will continue to act as all important styling accents for 2018 weddings. These elements on muted blues and greys will form the perfect setting for modern couples looking to incorporate stylish tones in their big day. As wedding stylists we love to play with texture and we're super excited to mix natural soft materials such as raw silk with natural materials next year. It's all about layering. See through elements such as signage and place cards have already started to feature in weddings and the trend will continue well into 2018-2019. Think acrylics, hand written glass signage and using windows in new and interesting ways.
DRINKS AND CATERING!
2018 wedding trends will see couples explore and push the boundaries when it comes to creating a memorable and unique drinking and dining experience. Expect to see opulent grazing tables and delicious dessert stations as well as more exotic cuisines such as Mexican and Japanese coming through in reception dining spaces.
Food Trucks and Mobile Bars (Prossecco Van anyone?) will also become more popular as a number of couples opt for a more relaxed approach to the reception and sit down dinners make way for more outdoor cocktail events. For those still keeping it formal serving classic cocktails or a 'signature drink' on arrival is a great way to create a memorable experience for your guests. Whisky stations or 'create your own' cocktail stations will add a visually fun and immersive experience for guests to talk about well after the big day.
