Do you want your wedding to tick all the 2018 trend boxes? Or are you looking for some creative inspiration? We’ve got seven incredible trends that you could incorporate into your wedding.
1. Rustic vibes
The rustic look is back with a bit of a twist on previous rounds of this trend. To get it right for this year, think greenery and wooden details, with nature being included across every aspect of your wedding planning. A venue such as a farm or barn is ideal for ensuring that your theme flows and helps tie it all together.
2. Creating entertainment
The experience that guests have is becoming more important to the happy couples at weddings. As a result, expect evening entertainment to take on a show-like feel. From dancers taking centre stage to magicians working the crowd, it’s a great way to add something that you love to the reception. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune either, there’s plenty of local talent around the UK.
3. Bold, block colours
Muted tones and elegant black are being swapped for bold colours among brides getting married this year. But while colour clashes are still popular, it’s block colours that are really getting attention in 2018. From single colour bouquets to a base colour that will cover all your décor, it’s a simple way to create a cohesive theme and pick up trend points too.
4. Unique foods and creative deserts
Forget boring menus that you can’t deviate from. Unique foods, especially desserts, are the way forward this year. It’s fun and a great way to make sure that you get to eat the food that you really love. Make it suit your venue too, so for our beachside farm venue our ice cream cart serving up local deliciousness is very popular in summer, ask your venue what they have available. Whether you opt for a formal meal or are going for trendy canapes, put your own spin on the food you’ll be tucking into.
5. Traditional cakes with a fruity twist
Cupcakes, macaroons, and mini desserts are so last year. Traditional cakes are back on trend, with elegant lace detailing and fresh flowers in particular being key trends to watch. However, flavours are being given a twist. Couples are opting to have multiple flavours, giving guests more choice, and fruity concoctions that are deliciously refreshing.
6. Beautiful bridal capes
Traditional veils have long been an essential staple for brides. For women that want something that’s just as beautiful but also different, bridal capes are making their way do the aisle. Whether you want a light, floaty cape that will look stunning on the beach in summer or need something heavier to keep the winter chill at bay, capes are incredibly versatile.
7. Embracing the personal
Giving everything a personal touch is one way couples are making their big day unique, even when following the trends. From adding photographs to using your favourite flowers, your wedding should be about you. Choosing a venue that gives you more flexibility, such as a barn, is ideal for putting your own stamp on every aspect.
