8 Beautiful Wedding Trends for 2018

As with the beginning of a new year, new wedding trends have emerged to get you really excited for your wedding planning. Today we’re getting set to share some of our favourite trends that we hope to see on Mrs2be Missies throughout 2018.

Of course there will be traditions that you might want to stick with but from floral brights to big decor, see-through details to shining trinkets, we hope you like our choices.


See-through everything will be huge this year, you mark our words! From suspended table plans to decor ideas such as place settings and even wedding invitations, acrylic and glass is a must for a clean and sophisticated bridal look.

Wedding cover ups are back in a big way, and not just for winter brides. This year the extravagant cape will be the cover up of choice and we absolutely love them, they are the perfect accessory to make an impact with your bridal look and also work as a veil if you prefer a modern touch.

Move on rose gold your time is up! This year copper is the metallic of choice for couples who fancy adding a shimmering appeal to their wedding look. Copper works brilliantly with an industrial look, or if you fancy keeping things more feminine, it works just as well with pretty shades of pink.

Bold Florals

If last year was all about the muted shades, 2018 is going to feature lots of bold florals and striking arrangements – check out the hanging arrangements we love. This year you should be thinking the bolder the better!

Modern Hair Jewellery

We hate to break it to you but it seems floral crowns have had their day… It’s now time to look to the stars for modern hair jewellery. Think star-shaped everything and minimal designed pieces to dress your bridal hair to the max.

Dessert Tables

Sure, they’ve been popular the past few years but we think 2018 will be the year the humble dessert table really sends our tastebuds into overdrive! We suggest foregoing the last course and instead inviting your guests to tuck into your beautiful dessert table.

The colour of the year from Pantone will be very popular for 2018 brides, we just know it! Last week we shared gorgeous bridesmaids dresses in this fabulous shade, and you can expect to see it pop up in all aspects of the Big Day from decor through to floral displays.

Wreath Decor

Not just for hanging on your door at Christmas, the humble wreath will make its mark at weddings in 2018 and we are super happy about it! Used as an alternative bouquet for your bridesmaids or as a ceremony centrepiece, expect to see lots of wreaths in various sizes throughout 2018 weddings.
