Aisle Society Unveils 2018's Hottest Wedding Trends
Millennial Couples' Current Favorite Trends Include Velvet, Bridal Capes and Transparent Elements
By: Aisle Society
"Today's couples still take inspiration from the worlds of fashion, design, and celebrity," says Aisle Society Chief Executive Officer Ami Price, "but crucially, add their own spin, making each wedding a statement of their personal style. Our website, which allows users to curate their inspiration experience, provides a unique insight into which trends are just heating up for 2018, and those from previous years that are here to stay."
This '90s fashion mainstay is already all over attire and interiors, and is now set to be 2018's most desirable fabric for weddings too. Plush furnishings, rich jewel-toned table linens, and even bridal and bridesmaid dresses will get the velvet touch this year.
Lace sleeve wedding dresses have been growing in popularity with brides over the past few seasons, and for 2018 they have a new twist: off-the-shoulder sleeves. Detachable sleeves are set to be another favorite, and watch out for even more dramatic sleeve shapes like puffs and balloons, which took the Fall 2018 runways by storm.
AUSTRALIAN WEDDING STYLE
Australian couples have pioneered and perfected a wedding style that's all about effortlessly modern, bohemian chic, now making waves worldwide. Think glam gowns in farm locations, barns lit up with sparkling chandeliers, or beautiful floral arbors under tall eucalyptus trees.
Searches are way up on everything acrylic, Lucite and glass, with elements like see-through stationery, glass tents, and ghost chairs perfectly fitting the Scandi-influenced modern minimalism that millennials are embracing.
Where couples used to settle on two or three mix-and-match colors for their wedding and stick to them carefully, we're now seeing a more fluid approach to color, with various tones of a single shade making up a beautiful whole. Monochrome bouquets are also a 2018 trend, along with white gowns paired with striking black accessories.
While veils will never truly go out of fashion, stylish 2018 brides are opting for capes, a chic alternative that has the romantic appeal of a long veil without the formality.
Marble was one of last year's key trends, and it looks set to continue into 2018, albeit a bit more subtly, with searches on the rise for unique elements like marble chargers and coasters to enhance the latest wedding tablescapes.
It may no longer be the color of the year, but greenery as a design element shows no sign of disappearing. Expect to see big, beautiful statement greenery bouquets going down the aisle, tropical greenery on tables, and lush greenery installations forming a backdrop to bold neon signage.
Rose gold has been THE metallic of the past couple of seasons, and continues to be a favorite amongst brides and grooms. This year, we expect to see this preference morph into a firm leaning towards millennial pink in wedding design, in everything from décor to dress detailing. This gender-neutral pink looks good on everyone, and manages to be modern and nostalgic all at once.
