Wedding Trends for 2018
Here’s a look at the new 2018 wedding trends, and the details to bring them to life, for your upcoming Florida Keys wedding.
Navy is the new black.
As an alternative to formal black, brides and grooms are opting for dark to medium blue as the neutral shade in their Florida Keys wedding’s color palette and we’re seeing a lot of navy blue bridesmaid dresses too.
Pantone named 'Ultra Violet' the Color Of The Year which means we will be seeing purple at many Florida Keys weddings in the next coming months. For winter, a darker plum will most likely be used and in the spring and summer we will see a shade more closely resembling Ultra Violet.
Metallics are here to stay, but instead of gold use brass and rose gold that continue to be popular. Couples are bringing silver and chrome into the mix for 2018 wedding trends.
Our Florida Keys Couples are also going back to formal weddings according to several Florida Keys wedding planners. We are anticipating a stronger presence of uber-elegant weddings in 2018. We are seeing cleaner florals, classic tuxedos, and a hint of sparkle, a bit of whimsical, so it’s formal but not stuffy.
Suspended flowers are the floral decor of the moment. Couples are keeping their guest tables simple and focusing more on suspended treatments. For an understated centerpiece, one idea that will be popular for 2018 wedding reception tables is a small cluster of vases with just one or two types of flowers.
The photo booth concept is not going away but today’s couples are having an open booth with a backdrop. A no booth-booth. As for props, people are tired of the same old props, so either they won’t have any props in their photo booth or they’ll seek out new, never-before-seen props
Something we have been hearing more and more from our Florida Keys wedding couples is how important food is. We want to present guests with a new food experience, or one that resonates with their personal style. On the menu for 2018 wedding trends are interactive appetizer stations, including a raw bar or roll your own sushi, using family recipes, farm-to-table dinners, and creative desserts.
Florida Keys Brides who want a rustic/beachy look and feel will start incorporating more tropical greenery. This includes greenery in the florals and green as the wedding’s main color. We’ll also move away from burlap and see more wooden details that can include the invitation, table numbers, seating cards, tags, chargers, signage, chairs and tables.
