1. Pantone Colour of the Year 2018 – Ultra Violet 

The Pantone Colour of the Year is often an inspirational colour that transcends all styling with events and weddings around the globe. The Pantone Colour of the Year, Ultra Violet, is going to be seen strongly this year through bouquets, bridesmaid dresses, groom’s accessories and reception décor. A dramatic shade, it is original and desirable and is the colour to watch for all upcoming wedding designs.

“The Pantone Colour of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today.” – Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Colour Institute.

2. Metallics

We are seeing flashes of metallic all over the runway with the focus of 2018 being mixed metals of gold, rose gold and silver. Not only will metallics continue to feature throughout wedding styling, this trend is now extending to mixed metal jewellery, bridal belts, metallic headpieces and hair accessories. It is a trend that is just getting started.

3. Hanging Floral Installations 

A HUGE trend in 2017 and it continues to flourish throughout wedding styling. Hanging floral installations above tables create a stunning piece that gives much more room on the wedding tables instead of a centrepiece on the table. It is a true WOW factor for when your guests arrive at the reception.

Remember to include the hashtag on your save the dates, invites and signage around the venue. It is such a great way to look through all of the photos from your guest’s point of view and collect an eclectic range of images from your special day.
