WEDDING TRENDS TO WATCH OUT FOR IN 2018
So what’s on the menu for our next line up of newlyweds? Be ready for a change of scenery.
Traditional decor is out and it’s time to welcome all things custom.
Let the chandeliers be lit
Say goodbye to vintage and floral. Glam chandeliers make a comeback with a modern twist. And no, we’re not talking about making your guests feel like they’ve waltzed into the renaissance period. Create a subtle design statement with crystal pendants, contemporary shapes and eye-catching wall installations. It’s about exuding elegance and class without being tacky.
"While we don’t really have anything against a white party, next year’s trends are in favour of those bold brides who love nothing more than to make a statement."
Get away from a white wedding
Think navy, forest greens, peaches, nudes, violets and red tones. While we don’t really have anything against a white party, next year’s trends are in favour of those bold brides who love nothing more than to make a statement.
Light the drapes!
Cost effective? Tick. Personalised? Tick. Insta-worthy? Tick! If you weren’t born yesterday, you know that lighting is kind of a big deal. And when it comes to reinventing the night to suit your tastes, illuminating the drapes is a game changer for the purse and the mood.
Mind the gap between the ceremony and the reception area.
Another win for the DIY lovers. Adding a partition wall to seperate different areas of your venue creates interest and flaunts off an intelligent use of space. Play with fabric, layers and panels to show the world you’re a creative genius. Your GFs will be envious they didn’t come up with this idea first.
The key to 2018 wedding planning is to take the default settings and scrap ‘em! After all, when it comes to being progressive and re-inventing the wheel, we vote “yes”.
Styling the decor for the big day always takes up more time than expected. Why not handball that list to us so you can pour your heart into doing what you enjoy most.
