We’re just a few weeks into the new year and now that engagement season is in full swing, there are so many gorgeous weddings to start planning! Whether you’ve been gathering ideas from your favorite bridal magazines or you’ve kept a few inspiration folders full of ideas on Pinterest, there are always new wedding trends that come out after bridal fashions have hit the runway.
New and innovative ideas are also seen throughout wedding ceremonies and receptions – even if you plan to have a totally customized event, there are numerous elements and 2018 wedding trends that will add a fabulous touch to any aspect of your special day. Wondering what the new trends for 2018 hold and how you can easily incorporate them into your Pittsburgh wedding? Here are just a few gorgeous details to consider:
- Bridal style – The top 2018 wedding trends are all about looking more natural and comfortable. Of course, there’s always room for a dramatic ballgown or other breathtaking silhouette, but one of the most popular trends for 2018 is going for comfort – switching to flats during the reception or incorporating dresses with higher necklines, sleeves and even chic jumpsuits (!) are a stylish way to feel comfortable as you dance the night away without worrying about a wardrobe malfunction.
- Bridal beauty – Just as an effortless, natural look is on-trend for bridal style, beauty wedding trends are not far behind. Brides are opting for more sun-kissed looks – going for lip gloss over lipstick and even more nude, matte formulas and colors. One thing to play up? Eyelashes! Though most of the bridal beauty look is more natural, thick and gorgeous lashes are taking center stage in the makeup routine. Side-swept hair and soft waves are also favored over structured up-dos.
- Wedding Reception – Overall, 2018 wedding trends are about taking away the stuffy and formal aspects and infusing more personality and accessibility to the big day. One way to do that in the wedding reception is to forgo dramatic floral arrangements and centerpieces and instead go for potted plants or greenery (think about succulents), single stem proteas, or other eye-catching blooms, or even minimal centerpieces and arrangements.
2018 is the year for making your wedding truly what you want it, without worrying about past traditions or formal components. The use of natural elements – whether it’s wood, cement or even greenery – is a gorgeous way to add color and texture into the ceremony and reception, while also giving it a personal touch!
