If you’re planning a wedding this year you’re in luck – the 2018 wedding season is generating plenty of new ideas and gorgeous details to feature on your big day. While classic, timeless touches will never go out of style, up and coming trends are definitely worth your consideration. Beautiful, fantastically romantic wedding inspirations are trending on social media so if you want your wedding to stand out from what everyone’s seen before, take heed of the below advice.

Woodsy and rustic

While barnyard weddings and rustic details are still popular, in 2018 the focus is less on country elements and more on woodland whimsy –  think less burlap, more wooden details.

While the rustic trend is heavy on shabby chic, country-inspired details, the woodland trend highlights more forest creatures (squirrels, deer and antlers, owls), pinecones, mushrooms, acorns, leaves, and other forest-friendly features.

Peach and cream hues have been popular with brides for decades but things are getting dark for 2018 with darker, detailed, and textured florals set to be a big hit. Experts say it’s all about the ‘drama’ and tout purple as the hottest colour of 2018.

Late-night treats

The emphasis will be on the late-night portion of the wedding. The level of thought that goes into ‘the party after the party’ will grow in 2018. Whether that means adding a specialty late-night food option, changing into a fun jumpsuit or lighter dress, or moving to an entirely new location to keep guests on their toes, there are many fun ways to keep the party going!

Breathtaking chandelier-style arrangements suspended above the individual tables or as a focal point in the middle of the room are going to be all the rage this wedding season, according to Wedding Wire. Not only are they are a stunning alternative to the traditional centerpieces, they don’t obstruct conversations between your guest.

Savvy brides know that a picture-perfect wedding day isn’t just about colors and themes; it’s also about textures and finishes. Metallics are growing in popularity, from marbled wedding cakes to marble place settings and dance floors.

Potted plants

While some brides love lining their aisle with rose petals or even candles, 2018 will be all about potted plants. Experts say this look will be all the rage and suggest wrapping the pots in silk fabrics for a chic touch.

Coloured candles

There’s no better way to add vintage romance to your big day than with statement candelabras. Instead of the standard white and ivory candles, couples are adding a splash of colour on tablescapes or peppered throughout the event space, adding something unexpected to the décor.
