Wedding Trends from 2017 and 2018
There have been some gorgeous trends for weddings this year; from hay bales to marble, the rustic and the luxurious have all played a part in this years wedding looks. We’ve had a look back at what’s been hot and what’s to come for 2018.


Prosecco and cocktail stations

Creative and make your own drinks style stations have been popular this year, with pimp your prosecco bars and gin caravans all making an appearance.


Alternative wedding cakes

A wedding cake is no longer just a white tier fruit cake. 2017 has seen a whole new range of cake styles, including drip cakes, nearly naked cakes, colourful sweet inspired cakes and the use of cheese wheels for a savoury style centrepiece.


Custom wedding hashtags

With the prominence of social media in our lives, it is only fitting that people have started to include it within their big day. Using your own hashtag is a great way to collate photos and share them with any friends and family that can’t make it on the day.



This year luxury has been a big trend with colour schemes including gold and marble and opulent styles and indulgent décor.


Natural flowers

Wild flower and natural greenery add a rustic look to any wedding and can really add depth to a venue.


Rustic locations

From outdoor wedding in tipis to barns this year has all been about the rustic venues, spaces with a character means that with minimal decorations they can still add awe to a wedding.


A lot of the hot trends for 2017 are set to stay for 2018, along with some other styles, we’ve had a look at what’s set to be popular in 2018.



Navy is going to be the go to formal colour of 2018, men’s suits have got more stylish over the years with the braces trend making a good addition to previous suits and now black suits are all out and navy is the new formal colour.


Creative Dessert

Like the cake trends of this year, dessert stations are a big thing again in 2018, with cake stations and sweet jars to satisfy your guests sweet tooth.



The rustic look is here to stay, it was really popular in 2017 and the natural colours, wild flowers and rustic venues will still be popular in 2018.


Open spaces and industrial architecture

Barns were popular this year and will continue to be in 2018 as well as large industrial spaces that create a blank canvas for couples to dress how they want.


Natural light and minimalistic look

Along with the industrial trend comes the minimalist décor and natural light elements, these look to be very popular in 2018.


Relaxed Catering

It’s out with the 3 course waiter service for 2018 where you are much more likely to get a pie from a van or a buffet style supper.
