2) Ultra Violet is looking likely to be the colour of choice
Colour is everything at a wedding and picking the right one will tie everything together with real style. Thankfully, Pantone recently announced that their 2018 Colour of The Year is Ultra Violet; giving us a good indication of how other industry trends will form around this stunning colour tone. So, if possible, try to base your wedding ideas, bouquets, décor, installations, and everything else around Ultra Violet.
3) Have your first dance on a marble dance floor
Marble is a luxurious stone and one that’s truly timeless in its appearance. So, why not take the plunge into the world of marble dance floors for your 2018 wedding? While it’s possible to rent an installation yourself, there are also some specialist locations out there that can provide your wedding reception with this unique marble touch.
4) Destination weddings with a cultural twist
For too long, couples hosting destination weddings have been missing out on all the wonderful local culture. From city based locations to places completely off the grid, you can be certain that local traditions, music, and cultural offerings will add a charming touch to make your wedding plans even more special.
5) World food and comfort eats take centre stage
When it comes to wedding ideas, finding the right food can be a tough one to crack. 2018 is looking to be the year that couples opt out of the traditional 3-course menu and go for something a little more comforting. Think Japanese, Peruvian, Mexican, Vegan, Hawaiian, or anything else that’s a little different but easily enjoyed by the masses.
6) Keep your eyes on the royal wedding
Despite everything else, the royals are definitely going to play a pivotal part in setting some of the key wedding trends 2018. Interestingly, it looks like Harry and Meghan are bucking the ultra-traditional style that royal weddings have been known for in the past. So, keep an eye on how their May 19th wedding goes and take a little inspiration from the fact they’re doing things differently.
