5 Wedding Trends You Need to Know Now


Planning a Wedding? Lucky You!

There's never been a better time to plan a wedding. From colored wedding dresses to themed food bars, your options are unlimited. Brides and grooms are planning customized weddings filled with personality that provide a memorable experience for their guests. But even though weddings are more unique than ever, unmistakable trends are emerging. Incorporate some or all of them to plan your ultimate celebration. Here are the top 5 wedding trends you need to know to plan your wedding ceremony in 2018 and beyond. 

1) Texture

We love textiles and unique fabrics, so the textured wedding trend is making our hearts skip a beat. Texture is showing up all throughout weddings—from amazingly detailed wedding dresses, table cloths, and backdrops, to decorative elements like macrame. A textured wedding dress is a great way to keep a traditional white dress, yet boldly express your personality. For inspiration, check out our Textured Wedding Elements Pinterest board.

2) Bold Color

You may know that Pantone's color of the year is Ultra Violet. That pick is setting the tone for bold, vibrant wedding color palettes. Blush and muted colors are trending out in favor of burgundy, plum, butter yellow (if you watched the Oscars this year, you know yellow is a rising trend) and other strong hues. Check out our Pinterest board on Bold Wedding Palettes.

3) Casual Groom Attire

Gone are the days when grooms and groomsmen all donned tuxedos for a wedding. Instead of the traditional "penguin suit," grooms are opting for more casual attire that better reflects their personalities. When we say "casual," remember that anything is casual compared to a tux. Men are still dressing up, and we do not condone jeans or shorts at a wedding. Instead, think colored suits, open collars, suspenders, and vests instead of blazers. For more, visit our Casual Groom Attire Pinterest board.

4) Good Vibes

Incorporating natural and/or spiritual elements into wedding decor is a huge trend right now. We love this modern take on bohemian style that mixes crystals, geodes, geometric shapes and lots of greenery and flowers. Find inspiration on our Good Vibes Wedding Decor Pinterest board.

5) Scenic Venues

When are scenic venues not in style, right? But nature settings are a perfect compliment to the relaxed, modern-bohemian style that is so on trend right now. Maine provides some of the country's best water views and rustic woods locations. For more, check out our Maine Wedding Venues Pinterest board.
