Wedding Season 2018 has officially begun and I have some insight as to what’s the up and coming trends for this year. Having met with several brides with weddings scheduled in 2017-2018, I can offer you my take on what’s HOT Today!
Soft Wedding Colors
Whether it be monochromatic shades of any color or complimenting color combinations the trend is to keep it light toned, with a single pop of color. Keep things interesting by utilizing a bright color as a bold punch of personality. Overall, the wedding party style is refined and laid back.
Personalize your Wedding
Brides are utilizing jeweled accents, dazzling gems, feathers, brooches to complement their personal tastes. Items like family heirlooms, remembrance lockets and other items make their flowers more personal. Each and every custom designed bridal bouquet is exceptionally personalized to the bride. I’ll never forget the last bride I had. Her father recently passed away due to an unfortunate illness. I felt a tremendous responsibility to make sure her locket of the two of them was hand sewn to the brides bouquet. You can bet I made it my highest priority to make sure it was done flawlessly. I felt tearful just thinking of the feelings this would give my bride while she joined with her soul mate on their new journey together. It was very comforting knowing, I was able to help in my small way to make that wish happen.
Creative Wedding Reception Flower Designs
This isn’t an entirely new concept, however it’s continuing to be really popular. Brides are still incorporating themes into their wedding from beachy destination weddings to personal careers whether it be a physician or a Firehouse theme. Couples want to make their day personal to them. What fun, it’s an area where we can really be creative and shine. Creating different looks at the reception creates lots of ingest and that “wow” factor when guest walk into the dining room. Long gone are the days of keep the look uniform it’s not for everybody.
