Four Wedding Trends to Expect in 2018

This year has already seen some trend-setting weddings. From featuring dogs in a bridal party to having a grandmother as a flower girl, here are some top trends to look out for in 2018!

No more plated dinners

Trend-setting WeddingsBrides are now going a different route when it comes to food at a reception. We have seen food stations becoming more popular in recent years and we’ll only see them being used more often in 2018. Breaking the standard of having your guests choose a meal upon RSVP’ing, this new nontraditional option will allow guests to enjoy a smorgasbord of different foods. This method will give guests an experience, rather than just a plate of food.

Enhanced entertainment

Since weddings are becoming more about the experience, this year is looking to give guests the full treatment. People are finally moving away from being passive bystanders at weddings due to all of the activities that are now being offered to them. It’s not just about dancing anymore. 2018 weddings will see an increase in photo booths, magicians, and full-on after parties.

Playing with texture & design

2018 is the year to take risks in the style of your wedding. More often we are seeing brides and grooms incorporating small personal details into their wedding design, which adds a sentimental touch to everyone’s experience. People are starting to experiment with nontraditional styling choices, such as incorporating geometric shapes and establishing alternative lounging areas.

Change in venue

Churches are still very popular for weddings, but this year will see an increase in nontraditional locations. Some trendy couples are saying ‘I do’ on rooftops and in barns, and some are striving to find the most unconventional spaces so they can work with only the design elements they want to. On the other hand, brides and grooms are choosing venues like museums or plantations and then setting up tours for their guests to enjoy between the ceremony and reception.
