2018 Wedding Trends

Wedding trends come and go, with new additions charming their way onto the scene and old favorites slowly fading into oblivion, only to pop back up a few years later.

When couples pay attention to the trends of the moment and apply them to their own tastes and traditions, it can make planning a wedding that much easier. When you have some ideas to work with, filling in the blanks is much simpler than starting from scratch.

Some wedding trends to be on the lookout for in 2018 include different venues, color palettes, and textures. There may be one trend that sticks out more than another for you, or maybe you will like several and want to combine them. Either way, having an idea on what to expect when you first sit down with your event coordinator is a good way to begin.

Barn ceremonies and outdoor weddings have been quite popular for a while now, and will likely continue to be for some time, but industrial venues are starting to make a splash, too. In 2018, don’t be surprised to see many couples aiming for urban, simplistic spaces rather than outdoor settings.

Although venue tastes are evolving, many natural elements aren’t going very far. An abundance of greenery and wooden accents will continue to show up in 2018. However, darker colors like royal blue, deep reds, gold, and black are slowly overcoming the show-stealing pastels. Expect to see richer shades, from floral choices to wedding party attire.

Other feature details are things like macramé decor, crystals, and velvet fabric. The closer we get to the new year, the more you will see couples really trying not just to entertain their guests, but make them feel comfortable, as well. Warmer tones, hanging floral arrangements to allow for more table space, games, personalized food stations, and late-night treats are a few examples.

In 2018, you may also see details like cascading bouquets, jewel toned bridesmaid dresses, and chic wedding gowns with cool, bohemian elements. Impressive dessert options are also becoming quite a staple, so expect to see more sweet tables with customizable accents. Wedding cakes will once again be getting the attention they deserve.
