Wedding season is right around the corner, and we're sure you're wondering about all the newest wedding trends in 2018. Look no further because we have the inside scoop! Whether you're someone whose been planning this since you were a child or maybe only since the question was popped, this day will be memorable and these new wedding trends might be just what you need for your special day. Did you know that more couples are now asking for just money as a wedding gift instead of doing a traditional registry? Or are you someone that has a cause close to your heart? Couples are now attaching a charity to their retail registry, and if you use the Knot Newlywed Fund, they will donate on the couples behalf each time a gift is purchased off their registry. Another interesting new wedding trend we found is that more couples are opting out of favors and prioritizing their guests takeaways. This entails treating guests to extras like a specialty sip station, a lipstick bar, etc. Most weddings have signature cocktails, but 2018 is changing that game. Couples are now switching from signature cocktails to claiming their food. Ask guests to choose from a "his" or "hers" entrée option. Food presentation has always been a big trend, and this year weddings are taking it a step up with "experienced" cuisine.
Feel like there are a lot of comeback wedding trends happening this year? You're right! One trend making its comeback these days is that color is back. Richly pigmented flowers and colorful candle centerpieces for table decor are making their comeback this year. If you're one of those people who are torn between having an outdoor wedding venue versus an indoor venue, go with your gut. Most brides these days are having an indoor venue over the whole beach, garden scene. Another comeback trend this year is the single-stem flowers. Baby's breath, that inexpensive-seeming stem of tiny white flowers, is also making a return in the wedding world. It pairs perfectly with on-trend greenery and works well for flower crowns and other small hairpieces. We know that drip cakes were a trend of 2017, and drip cakes will still be big in 2018. These cakes pair well with the relaxed, bohemian look. Cakes with a thin layer of buttercream (the semi-naked look) have also been making an appearance at wedding receptions. And of course the doughnut trend will continue to trend through 2018 weddings, making a more creative twist on desserts. We hope our inside scoop on these new and old 2018 trends were just what you're looking for to plan your special day!
