2018 Wedding Trends: Goodbye Rustic! Welcome Woodland Weddings and Boho Folk!

2018 Wedding Trends: The Marriage of Ultra Romantic Vintage and Modern Industrial Spaces
This is my favorite of the 2018 wedding trends. It’s one of those mashups you wouldn’t think they would work together but they do! And how! If you want to follow this trend, pick a raw space as a wedding venue. The more unique, the better.
Think museums, libraries, lofts, warehouses or renovated factory buildings. These venues usually feature exposed brick walls and aluminum pipes and it really adds up to the charm. And if you want to have a wedding with a view in the city, go for the latest trend and pick a rooftop! 😉
Now, turn it into the most ultra romantic wedding of your dreams with the vintage decor of your choice. No need to fill every nook and cranny with furniture either. Go minimalistic and allow their vast industrial spaces to shine and allow your guests to mingle. You won’t be disappointed!
2018 Wedding Trends: Nature Wedding Decoration Takes a Step Forward
Greenery in not going anywhere in 2018. And in line with the ultra romantic vintage wedding theme, flowers are making a comeback. Especially pink and dark red dogwood flowers. Not only because of their dark moody colors (also ultra trendy) but due to its meaning. According to a Victorian tradition, the couple would signal love with the gift of a bloom from this tree.
And it’s all about bringing the outdoors, indoors. Hanging hoops with foliage and flowers, glass bell jars and cloche domes with moss and greenery table wreaths.
More nature: we will see marble and copper on dance floors, living food stations wth potted plants and even as wedding ceremony backgrounds. This marble and copper 2018 wedding combination is simple, elegant and unique.

Now that Pantone named Ultra Violet the color of the year, it’s official, moody colors are it! Imbued with an association to love and passion, we will see them adding a glam look to the wedding party and to the reception decor.
Bridesmaids can show off a fashionable, almost black, Ultra Violet dress, Groomsmen can add this color to their ties, hankies or suits. And there is nothing more elegant than Ultra Violet candles, both pillar or tapered, depending on the effect you want to achieve.
Of course, all moody colors like dark red, moody blue or the new Pantone’s Emperador and Chili Oil, can be used to include these 2018 wedding trends.

2018 Wedding Trends: Intimate Weddings where Guest Experience is Paramount
While the trend is towards a more minimalistic style, wedding budgets have remained the same. Why? Well… couple’s priorities have changed.

Foodies rejoice! 😋
