Trends for 2018 Weddings

Whether you are planning a wedding that is on-trend or counter-trend, you need to know what’s hot in 2018.

Brides Magazine says ultra violet is the on-point color of the year, along with black accents or 3-D florals on traditionally styled white wedding dresses. They’re eager for feel-good menu items – think breakfast, food trucks, or made-to-order pizza – as well as quirky dessert tables and hanging floral arrangements at down-sized, more intimate receptions.

Martha Stewart Weddings is envisioning potted plants as wedding decors, smaller wedding parties, and a trend back to indoor weddings – which makes sense since there are fewer concerns about hot summer days and drippy spring, fall or winter clouds. Couples may start focusing more on “after parties” following receptions, which will feature see-through venues (think lots of glass or transparent tents), colored candles, and textured linens.

WeddingWire.com says navy blue tops the color palette with silver or chrome accents. They predict receptions filled with unique foods, creative desserts (but yes, formal cakes are still in!), hanging floral arrangements, and fresh entertainment ideas. That includes new spins on the photo booth, which your Complete team would be more than happy to execute for you.

HuffPost got a sneak peak at the International Wedding Trend Report and came away with some really interesting ideas, including an emphasis on the Japanese philosophy, Wabi-Sabi – finding beauty in imperfection. They anticipate ultra-personalized weddings and receptions with smaller guest lists and pointed to ultra violet and moody color combos for palette.
