2. Silver and Chrome
Every girl needs a little bling in her life..metallics are shifting from gold and rose gold to silver and chrome this wedding season!
I’ll admit I am super excited about this one. Black tie is back! From outdoors to indoors, couples are opting to have a more formal event, even requesting a black tie attire. With lots of elegance and classic touches in design and attire, this year is sure to be all about the formal.

Couples are looking for new and creative ways to entertain their guests. Couples want their guests to have an incredible experience and are incorporating unique ways to keep them entertained. Such as photobooths, food entertainment, and live performances like these amazing synchronized swimmers.
7. Woodsy Look
Gone are the days of rustic and burlap; 2018 will bring a outdoorsy, woodsy look. Think wood accents and lots of greenery as florals. Greenery will be everywhere, bringing in that natural woodsy element.
8. Dark and Moody
The color trend of the year will be dark and moody. With darker textured flowers, and color pallets that are darker, richer, more dramatic.

9. Food Trends
Food is becoming a top priority for our couples. Gone are the days of bland chicken cooked a million different ways. Please your inner foodies with unique food stations or food that is personalized and has special meaning to the couple.
10. Smaller Guest Count
More and more couples are cutting back on their guests list these days and only inviting those that are near and dear to them. Who will be in your inner circle?
