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

We had enough of the barns and the rustic country themes. The 2018 wedding trends mark a change towards the ultra romantic vintage glam, the boho folk and the fairytale-like enchanted forest woodland outdoor weddings.

Imagine lounge areas with vintage furniture you got from the nearby flea-market, weddings in the desert or at the beach with boho folk touches, and majestic mountains as your ceremony background. Wow, am i right?

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!

It's not just vintage, it's ultra romantic vintage. To build this glorious centerpiece get a hold of a silver teapot, pearls, perfume bottles, lace, teacups, succulents and an empty frame.

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.

Wedding wreaths are the new ceremony arch in 2018.

2018 Wedding Trends: Moody Colors will Reign even in the Spring

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. A smaller guest list means they can splurge in a better guest experience with alternative food and drink ideas, hand-painted wedding cakes and even healthier versions of their favorite comfort foods. Foodies rejoice! 😋

Interactive areas or activities are now a must and the more unique, the better. Different interactive bar ideas or self-serving stations will allow your guests to break the ice, get to know one another and make the party way more fun. Think about how you can surprise and delight your #framily.

Something old, something blue… how about the shoes?

Ever wonder why a navy blue wedding is that classic crowd favorite? Easy. Navy blue isn’t just magical on table linens, flowers, and bridesmaid dresses, it’s totally exciting. Take for instance a dash of this trending navy blue: the refreshing Pantone Navy Peony. And watch it bring deep blue fire into any of these wedding color schemes.

Navy Blue Wedding Color Schemes We Love

When Navy Peony is paired with other colors, this combination will delightfully harmonize in creative gorgeousness. And because there are several options to choose from, we have compiled our list of stunning ideas and decor you can steal for your navy blue wedding.

Navy Blue & Fuchsia Reception: Energetic and Classy

What happens when you spice deep blue with hot purplish pink? A rich wedding color scheme ripe with floral beauty is what you get. Whether you place the combo on your wedding cake or centerpiece, navy blue and fuchsia stands out with elegant simplicity.

From navy-colored votive candles to fuchsia tablecloths, bring out that spark in your navy blue wedding. Throw in a shade or two of these color palettes on napkins and dishes. Then choose to accent your fuchsia bouquet with navy blue ribbons.

A navy blue and fuchsia pairing is awesome for spring and outdoor weddings. And an intimate fall wedding will definitely benefit from some touches of fuchsia. This color palette will have your guests bubbling with energy.

Romantic Blush and Navy Blue Wedding

When you desire that soft and romantic palette, this pairing cannot go wrong. This romantic color will sweeten up celebration in no small terms.

Moreover, because it is an every season combo suited for the masculine (navy) and the feminine (blush) gender, have your bridesmaids look cute in blush gowns and navy blue shoes. And your boys dapper in navy blue suits.

Don’t forget your bouquets—add navy blue berries to blush bouquets and drench the ceremony in cheerful flush. Vintage weddings can leverage their looks with gold blush and navy blue color schemes. Glam it up by adding touches of gold, bronze or any other metallic or soften it with a bit of gray.

Remember too that navy blue and blush will rest gorgeously on your table decor. And if you’d like to channel your blushing bride, go ahead with a blush wedding gown with navy blue accessories.

Affordable Winter Wedding Ideas that will Drop your Socks Off

Here are a few creative winter wedding ideas that won’t do a number on your wallets. Candles are all the rage during the holidays and if you wrap them in cinnamon sticks they will smell amazing—but should only be used as effects. However, because of a fire hazard, many venues don’t accept open flame decor. Make sure you check first.

A scattering of “snowy” pine branches and pinecones may also do wonders to your tablescape. Leverage poinsettias, holly, and other astonishing florals like perfectly opened amaryllis blossoms or hydrangeas that are in season to save some cash. Forget summer or spring flower decor and bring out the mistletoe! Have your guests share in the the kissing fun!

Visit your local nursery for evergreen cuttings and branches. Who knows? Friends and neighbors may donate winterberries and evergreens from their own backyard to the happy couple!

Alternative Winter Wedding Ideas

If you had enough of the Christmassy winter wedding ideas, go super upscale with a black and white wedding or introduce cozy blankets, scarfs and faux-furs! Leave the greenery outside and bring in iced branches with lots of bling. Better yet, use real or fake snow on your photos. You won’t regret it!

Another fantastic idea I personally love are beach weddings in the wintertime. They are way affordable and, depending on the time of year, there aren’t many tourists to crowd your pictures!

What to Serve at a Winter Wedding?

Also, winter is perfect for heavy meals and alcohol. And nothing says warm tummies more than a chocolate bar at a winter wedding! Present your guests with cookies, cakes, fig pies, mulled cider, marshmallows and a variety of chocolates, coffees and teas.

Cold weather is also a great excuse to indulge on some extra calories the foodie way. How does baked brie with rosemary, honey and candied walnuts sound? Maybe it’s time to bring in comfort foods like a creamy roasted tomato basil soup paired with butternut squash and spinach lasagna. Definitely original and on fleek.

Extraordinarily Elegant Indoor White Wedding Ideas

If your white wedding is held indoors, be creative so it won’t look boring. Since white will be the dominant color, or maybe the only color, it will be necessary to make the decoration very attractive while keeping in mind that the bride has to stand out. Add a signature color to give some dimension or to liven it up or have the bride wear a more colorful creation.

Mix white with either greenery or copper accents for an interesting and modern contrasting effect, or with subtle hues such as pastel pink or beige for a natural color lift.

Dramatic lighting pieces like a large crystal chandelier hanging in the center of the room will remove the risk of a dull white wedding decor. Do not hesitate to create large bouquets of flowers in the room. The bigger, the better here. If you plan to add large floral arrangements as table centerpieces, opt for very tall and clear vases to avoid blocking your guests’s faces.

Imagine a white wedding with tables covered with soft blush linens and lush arrangements of ivory florals dripping with crystals. Gold or copper accents can add a touch of glamour to the space by way of guest chairs, candelabras, glassware, and vases.

Outdoor White Wedding Decor: Fresh & Modern Ideas

For an outdoor wedding, other colors will be added to the white without you even noticing. Can’t get rid of the plants, greenery or even the sand and the ocean in the background. This is actually to your advantage. Greenery brings a nice contrast to the decor in white as does wood inside of a barn or the blue of the ocean at a white beach wedding.

There’s no need for massive chandeliers or giant flower arrangements at an outdoor white wedding. The details can be simple and be reduced to lavish bride and groom reception chairs or white flowers dangling in pretty mason jars!

All-White Wedding Tips You’ve Got to Read

If you want to go for an all-white wedding – one of those fit for a princess or a movie star – you will have to make it very clear to your guests that their attire has to be white. We recommend to steer clear of it, unless this is a very intimate event with very close family and friends, as it may upset the guests. Not everybody looks great in white and you would have to be very careful with the wedding menu. Nothing worse that bbq or marinara sauce on a pristine white outfit. Amiright?

If you really want to go all-white, your guests must adhere to the white dress code.
