Colors & Textures
Pantone, the leading expert on color, named the Color of the Year for 2018 to be Ultra Violet. They describe it as dramatic, provocative, and thoughtful, communicating originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking. We think it will be a beautiful and fun color for wedding decor, and it will make for some very lovely bridesmaid dresses.
Metallics are often used to decorate for special occasions. Last year lots of rose gold was used, but in 2018 we expect to see more silvers, chromes, and coppers. Transparent items will be extremely popular too, such as glass tables, lucite signage, crystal accents, and even see-through papers for invitations.
Multiple textures used in the same space is an interesting look that will be incorporated a lot. Just like your bridesmaid dresses don't have to match, neither do your reception tables. You can use 2 or 3 different types of looks with differently textured linens draped over each other. Just be sure to have some element on each table that ties them all together.
Smaller, Fancier Weddings
Couples seem to be throwing smaller, more intimate weddings for their closest family and friends. This is excellent for keeping a budget under control, and if money is no object, it allows you to spend more on each person because you aren't spreading the funds out among a few hundred guests.
Brides and grooms are also looking to throw a more formal affair, but without a stuffy feeling. This involves getting dressed up and using more luxurious decor and traditional wedding customs, yet still creating a fun vibe and relaxed atmosphere.
When it comes to the beautiful blooms you will use at your wedding, the newest trend is to suspend them from above everyone's heads! Probably not an easy feat to accomplish on your own, but a talented florist should be able to figure something out for you. Hanging pretty wreaths of greenery with gorgeous flowers of different colors is another trend that is back. They can be added to doorways, chair backs, ceremony aisles, backdrops, and more, and you can even incorporate printed wreaths onto your stationery.
Trends are a lot of fun to keep an eye on each year, but at the end of the day, the best choice for your wedding is your favorite things, even if they aren't the "popular" thing that year. When you come into Angelus Bridal & Formals, we will never try to force you to fall in love with a gown. Instead, we will listen to your needs and desires to help you find that gorgeous wedding dress you've always dreamed of wearing.
