Believe it or not but we are already getting enquiries about wedding decoration hire for 2018. So, exciting as this means we can start looking at a whole new load of wedding trends for the next 12 months. Timeless themes are always popular, but there are some new event decoration trends that are emerging that you can incorporate into your wedding day to make your day stand out from the rest. From new decoration trends to new floral ideas and food trends, here is The Venue Stylist round up of the 2018 wedding trends:
Smaller Guest Lists
We have noticed a trend over the last few years for weddings and events to be smaller more intimate affairs, with many couples choosing to leave relatives that they haven’t seen for years of the invitation list. This not only gives the day a lovely atmosphere as the couple are surrounded by the people they love the best, but it also means the wedding itself costs much less than normal!
Although weddings are getting smaller, the invitations themselves are getting more ornate and creative. A lot of couples are shunning traditional paper invitations for more adventurous materials such as Perspex wedding invitations, wood invitations and even fabric. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and really give your guests a taste of what to expect on the big day.
Along with the ditching of big formal weddings, many couples are also ditching the traditional wedding breakfast and opting for food they love to eat, such as pizza and sharing food. Our increased love of ethnic cuisine in the UK will be reflected in Mexican, Japanese and Peruvian food appearing on more wedding menus next year.
There is a real trend towards Scandinavian design and clean lines in interiors at the moment, and this is reflected in wedding decor next year with a real move towards transparency. Couples are opting for more light-filled venues with floor to ceiling windows, and even glass houses. Transparency is creeping into decor itself, with glass printed seating plans and lots of glass details on table tops as well.
In 2018, there is a trend towards focusing more on the actual vessel the flowers are in and not the flowers themselves. Brides are opting for a mix of modern and vintage vessels, with coloured glass and vintage cut glass featuring highly. With the flowers, the bolder, the better really.
Another interesting floral trend for 2018 is the introduction of wedding wreaths as a decoration whatever the season. These tend to have a bohemian feel and are created using eucalyptus, wildflowers and wispy grasses.
