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.
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.
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.
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.
