6 Wedding Trends to Try in 2018

How refreshing is it when a trend is playfully (and tastefully) incorporated into the overall vision of a wedding? Jordan Payne of Jordan Payne Events told us what trends we should expect to see in 2018. Here are six you should consider.

1. Loose, Sprawling Floral

Brides are opting for a more “organic” look as opposed to bouquets and centerpieces made up of tightly arranged flowers.

2. Delicate Floral Detailing

Flowers are for more than just the table. I am loving the romantic floral appliqués adorning otherwise minimal gowns and veils. Viktor & Rolf and Oscar de la Renta are great examples.

3. Minimalist Design

Glass tents with clean lines portray the minimalist design, but I am loving the look paired with gorgeous florals that sprawl and bring in the classic, romantic side. Even the venues are minimalist in style—think glasshouses or light bright spaces with full windows.

4. Seated Dinners

They are back! Spruce up the menu with unique dishes inspired by Mexican, Japanese, and Peruvian cuisine. Think: tacos, sushi, and ceviche.

5. Unexpected Invitation Details

Invitation suites that are both soft and romantic with modern or geo detailing are on trend. Mix the classic and modern to shake it up.

6. Add a Cape

The glamorous accessory can be added to the gown for a second look from ceremony to reception or from reception to exit.
