Each year, new ideas and details find their way in and out of wedding styles. Planners, floral designers, and wedding vendors all play their part to help create these wedding trends every year. Here are some of the wedding trends expected to burst through the scene for 2018.
For couples who are looking for a more budget-friendly and personal space, backyard weddings are coming back. Wedding rentals are practically invaluable for couples that choose to have their ceremonies and reception in the backyard. This refers to tent rentals for weddings, table rentals, and even linen rentals. Wedding rentals for a backyard reception make for a more intimate setting, as well as a money saving idea.
If you’ve ever been to a wedding the strictly serves cake, you know how impractical that can be. They serve the cake while people are dancing, so hardly anyone eats it. There are also many guests who do not like cake. This is a motivator behind this 2018 trend of dessert tables. Brides stock them with a wide variety of desserts that are often finger foods so their guests have options and can munch all night long.
Flowers are not going away from the wedding decor scene, they just aren’t sitting on the table anymore. Many brides are straying away from the traditional flower centerpiece and are keeping their tables simple. So, they are hanging their flowers with ceiling treatments.
Couples are starting to use their reception food as a way to express themselves. They are starting to stray away from the traditional, fancy five-course meals and are leaning more towards catering companies and even street food vans. Much like the dessert trend, appetizer stations and other buffet style foods are becoming more popular.
Wedding hashtags are continuing on as a trend from the previous year, and they seem to be here to stay. Hashtags are a great way to get guests involved on social media, especially with photos. Couples play with words, dates, and names for their hashtag that their guests will remember and find witty as well.
If you are getting married this year, or simply like to keep up on wedding trends, here is your breakdown of the hottest wedding trends for 2018. Backyard weddings, hanging flowers, unique food, wedding hashtags, and dessert tables will most likely make their way into a lot of weddings that happen this year.
