Going into the new year as engaged? 2018 is all about creating a bespoke and unique wedding, where the details depict the couple and offering an experience that will linger in the minds of the guests for a long time..
These are some of the colours picked from Pantone, predicted to be some of the biggest in 2018.
Colours for the bride!
Traditional white and cream, step aside for those fabrics and details in colour! It might be very traditional to wear white and only white, but the rules don’t always have to be strictly followed so why not bend them a little 😉 Dresses in pastel nuances, broderied flowers and metallic details are all allowed! If you really want an unconventinal look, the biggest colour trend is dramatic black! The whole dress or maybe just a detail on the dress? If you still want a lovely white, add a personal touch underneath that dress, maybe a playful green, an elegant blue, or why not a daring red?

Stationary: Creative invitations – save-the-date – name tags – wedding favors
Watercolour, calligraphy, creative maps, monograms – your wedding theme and colours should be reflected in your graphic design choices for keeping the red thread. If you have a personalized monogram it could be depicted on the invitation, the ceremony program, the menu card, gift bag-tag, and so on… and don’t think that all invitations are made of paper! Is that name card a macaroon? A leather key chain to keep?
Dark and moody colours and lots of greenery..
Talking about flowers, what is the latest? The dark, moody style, that goes along perfectly with that vintage touch. Your wedding pictures will look like antique photos with nuances of dark green, lilac, purpur, burgundy and gold. And of course, loads and loads of greenery, on the tables, in the roof, backdrops, the bride and bridemaids bouquets, the bar.. Well, anywhere really!
That romantic, bohemian style..
The decor, hair & make-up and even the dresscode. Bohemian is the look you should be going for in 2018. Laid-back, natural and sustainable are the key concepts in this trend and truly creates a romantic feeling. Dresses are simple yet elegant, and preferably with a matching cape over the shoulders..
It might be tough to find the right musical entertainment for the biggest day, but this year we are encouraged to think outside box when it comes to entertaining your invited ones. Maybe a choir singing for the first dance, or som fun games in the garden of your venue? A ”make-your-own”-drink-station? Letting farm animals be part of the backdrop in your wedding photos? Having a expert drawer make paintings of your guests? In 2018 the choices are unlimited!
Food & Beverage
This is an interesting part of a wedding, what do we get to eat? It is also a perfect way to show your personalities through the food, maybe your not into the standardized menu, but like people to be walking around mingeling as they taste different types of delicacies? There are plenty of ideas regarding drink as well that are hyped up this year! And how about the wedding cake? Dripcake is huge, and it looks delicious, don’t you think? But does it even have to be a cake?
Last but not least, what brides and grooms really want for their Big Day is it to be memorable for their guests and especially for themselves. Going to a wedding in 2018 chances are you might come across farm animals in the wedding photos, delicious night-snacks from food trucks and goofy garden games. Also, destination weddings continue to grow as couples really want to bring their closest ones to a special place and let them experience an authentic new culture together. If this isn’t creating an unforgettable moment we don’t know what is..
