No more burlap and rustic chic, think woodsy instead.

For several years now, mason jars, hand written chalkboards, and burlap have been all the rage at weddings. We are slowly starting to see people use less and less of these rustic chic items for decor and turning towards woodsy themes. By using wood for decor and accents, you add neutral elements that have texture without being too invasive to your overall decor. By pairing wood elements with an overall green wedding palette, your fete will feel like it’s more outdoors than in.

Say hello to silver and chrome.

Gold is the wedding color, right? It’s bright, shiny, and pairs well with pinks, soft yellows, and blues. Going into 2018, you may see more people leaning towards silver and chrome instead of copper and gold. These two cool colors add a crisp, cool feeling to your event and allow for more jewel tones to be used in flower arrangements and linens. Think burgundy flowers atop emerald green table cloths. Don’t be afraid to lean into bolder color schemes with silver and chrome accents in the new year.

Think formal, but not stuffy.

This new trend goes hand in hand with our first point about burlap and rustic chic. Wedding Trends in 2018, seem to be leaning more towards the traditional and formal, than the relaxed and chic. Don’t read us wrong here – these more formal weddings have a fair amount of whismy (see the next point below), but they are more focused on clean, clear design lines that have not been a part of the recent burlap and hay traditions of the last few years.
