5 wedding trends to look out for in 2018

It’s only January and already 2018 is set to be a big year for weddings. With a Royal wedding on the way, marriage fever is out in full force. Do you want your wedding to be as trendy as you? Here are our top 5 trends of 2018 for a truly unforgettable wedding.

Say goodbye to rose gold and hello to copper. A more rustic version of the former, copper is not only a quirky choice in metal but also a lot cheaper than most others! This will be particularly fashionable in autumn, when palettes are traditionally warm.

Get the look: Use copper candleholders and serving platters to give your guests dining experience an unforgettable edge.

Ultra Violet
Pantone’s Colour of the year always has a huge impact on wedding trends. 2016 saw pastel baby blues & pinks as hugely popular in bouquets and dresses. Last year Pantone’s colour was ‘greenery’ and we saw a huge influx in greenery & foliage being used to accent reception venue. This year, it’s the turn of Ultra Violet. A bold colour, that done right, can get everyone talking.

Get the look: Fill your bouquets with scabiosa, japanese anemone & iris. Accent tables with purple & gold detailing for a luxurious look.

Hanging Floral Installations
Stemming from the rise in foliage use, hanging installations create an interesting and quirky dynamic. They’re also the perfect alternative to table centrepieces if you’re opting for sharing platters.

Get the look: Perfect for the high ceilings of marquees, bring in the colour of the year with some wisteria.

Funky Foods

Considering how much is spent on catering, it’s hardly surprising many couples are opting for quirky alternatives. From tapas, to desert tables, to new takes on traditional foods, food is set to be one of the most important features of Weddings in 2018.

Wedding Wreaths
Usually reserved for winter, wreaths are highly fashionable this year. They make for great photo props and also act as a sweet keepsakes for the happy couple.

Get the look: Working on a budget? Take a wreath making class and create your own!


A massive thank you for providing an amazing and unique tent for our wedding. We were both so glad we went with the stretch tent for something a bit different and we couldn’t have been more pleased! All of our guests said how fabulous it looked! A big thank you also to everyone at Morton’s for helping and answering all of our questions in the run up to our big day. I definitely feel I know more about luxury toilets and generators! We would recommend Morton’s to anyone planning a wedding and wanting a tent which is a little different.

We were delighted with the marquee supplied by Morton’s Events.

Our guests were bowled over by the interlinking hexagonal “pods” (as we called them) and all commented on how special it made the wedding breakfast seem. We managed to accomodate 170 guests in plentiful space while making it seem intimate and cosy.

Mortons’ staff were incredibly helpful,flexible and obliging and decorated the marquee beautifully,with fairy lights and a fabulous starcloth ceiling over the dance “pod”.

Together with table decorations designed by my daughter,the effect created was magical,or as one guest put it “breathtaking.”

We would unhesitatingly advise any family contemplating a wedding in a marquee to opt for Morton’s.

Morton’s were professional, accurate, knowledgable and nothing seemed a problem.


The pods lend themselves in any situation and function and looked far better than we had both dreamed of.
Thank you Simon for making our day go without a hitch and for all your hard work and for what seemed like ours was the only function that year!

We had Mortons marques for our daughters wedding. With 200 guests we had 5 pods, a 5×5 square for the bar area and another as the entrance.

The seating for the guests wrapped round the dance floor giving a wonderful view to all and creating a great atmosphere. Mortons were so helpful always at the end of the phone and the whole day and all preparations went to plan. We would definitely use them again.
