1 – Colour of the Year 2018

First and foremost, the pantone colour of the year has been revealed… ‘Ultra Violet.’ Last year was Greenery, and we certainly saw an influx of brides option for green decor for table decor, installations and bouquets!

So, we can expect to see plenty of purple floral inspiration, as well as invitations, table decor; like napkins and plates, as well as new-age additions like crystals and agate coasters used as name places. It also makes the perfect partner to gold accents to luxe up any Ultra Violet styled look.

2 – Hanging Floral Installations

Following on from 2017, we certainly expect to see more luscious, over-flowing hanging floral installations. Why not get creative with your florals to create a great dynamic to your space, add height and varying viewpoints above your tables! It also gives you plenty of room on your tables to add quaint details, like candles, jam jars or even large sharing platters for your guests.

3 – Black Accents

While not to everyone’s taste, black is surprisingly on trend this year and can be easily incorporated into any wedding colour scheme. When you see how designers have done it, you’ll see it gives a modern and effective monochromatic twist, that can add impact and drama without fail! Take inspiration from Vera Wang, Marchesa and Reem Acra Spring 2018 bridal collections.

4 – Rose Gold to Copper

From rose gold to copper, 2018 still favourites the metallic style. With Copper, we are leaning more industrial than the glamorous rose gold look this year. This metallic style is so effective – adding quaint detail and copper accents to your venue decor with your cups, cutlery, chairs, ribbons and even with copper lanterns and tea light holders. The effect will particularly look great for an autumnal wedding color palette. AND the best thing of all about this material is that it’s super cheap!

I am so in love with this table set up. I love the copper mugs and blush napkins! Industrial Wedding Copper, greenery, brick, stylized shoot, grey tablecloth, blush wedding

5- Transparency

Charley at London Bride, Wedding Planner & Bloggers ( explains that it is in 2018 we will see a surge of see-through settings and decor.

‘Everything from the venues themselves think Glasshouses, or light bright spaces with full windows to Perspex hanging seating plans, tablescapes featuring an abundance of glass details with printed goods on semi-transparent paper. Great for modern and minimalist couples who like clean lines and Scandi vibes’.
