Amazing wedding trends for 2018
Your wedding is probably the most exciting and most stressful event you’ll ever plan. For many it is the most special day of our lives, one that we want to look back on with only the best memories in years to come. With all of this expectation comes a great deal of pressure, knowing what you want and what’s even available to you. Here are some of this year’s most popular trends on the wedding scene that are thrilling brides and grooms everywhere
Industrial venues and exposed architecture
The venue you choose for your wedding will set the tone for the entire day so making sure you have the right space from the outset will be vital to your planning. 2018 sees the shift from traditional rustic settings such as barns and farm houses to a more modern, industrial set up. Think: polished concrete instead of wooden flooring and exposed metal joists instead of beams. The beauty of this type of blank canvas venue is it can be decorated in any style you so wish.

2018 will see some gorgeous geometric patterns emerging in every element of wedding decor from centre pieces and china to the aisle itself.
Capturing the day in a painting
Photographers and videographers are of course a great way of recording your day without missing a moment. A more special way to do this is to hire a live painter. These artists capture a specific moment of your choosing, the ceremony, your first dance or even the bride’s entrance. This is a beautifully unique and incredibly special way of commemorating the big day, not to mention another form of entertainment for your guests. They will just love watching the painting come to life throughout the day.
Black bridesmaid dresses
Not a colour normally associated with weddings, but black bridesmaids dresses are actually a beautiful and practical option. Elegant and flattering for all, not to mention they serve to make a crisp white dress look even more striking.
Forget the DJ and dancing, 2018 is the year of alternative entertainment. It’s a wedding, but remember, it is your wedding. Make sure the entertainment reflects your passions and interests as a couple, whether it be a surprise pre-ceremony dance or an evening scooter race. Think outside the box and have some fun with your loved ones!
