If you’re planning a 2018 wedding – you’re going to want to check out all of the rumoured trends for what’s hot and what’s not in 2018.

We’ve put them all together for you here, take a look…

 

Ultra Violet

Pantone have officially named ‘ultra violet’ as the colour of the year – so you should expect to see 50 shades of purple at 2018 weddings!

Having ‘transparent elements’ as part of your day – whether part of the invitations, seating plans, table numbers or even the centrepieces, is set to be hugely trendy this year.

We found these acetate invitations here.

Why not style up your wedding dress and rock one of the hottest bridal style trends of 2018, by adding a little cape to your dress?

We think the pretty embellished detail makes these capes perfect.

Weekday Weddings

Gone are the days of having expensive Saturday weddings.

Soooooo many of you brides to be are opting to tie the knot through the week instead – this saves a lot of money.

Friday is proving to be one of the most popular days – and we love the idea of a 3 day weekend, don’t you?

It’s definitely worth checking availability and pricing – as you might just be able to afford the venue of your dreams after all!

Smaller Guest Lists

Another popular choice this year is deciding to cut back numbers on the guest list.

Again, this is another great idea if you’d like to save some of your cash – and smaller weddings always have a much more cosy, intimate feel.

Less blooms – more foliage 

Overgrown bouquet styles are going to be HUGE in 2018 – they’re totally gorgeous and budget friendly too!

Why not opt for pretty dogwood flowers instead of pricey peonies?

Or choose to bulk up your bouquet with more foliage to save on your spending.

‘Woodsy/Woodland’ Themes

We can all officially wave goodbye to the the good ol’ rustic trend and say hello to ‘woodsy’ or woodland themes instead.

Plant Pots as Aisle Decor

Potted plants are set to be really trendy this year as aisle decor.

We love the idea of bringing the outside inside (if you’re not planning on an outdoor ceremony) this would definitely be a fab idea for Spring/Summer weddings this year.


Bridesmaid Dress Trends 

Bridesmaid styles this year are all about: Separates, Dresses with slits, Delicate lace detail, One shoulder styles, Pretty florals and Dresses with floaty tiers.
