The Hottest Wedding Trends for Winter 2018
There is something about a winter wedding that is absolutely magical; filled with a special “something” that can’t quite be defined. Part of the magic can be attributed to the proximity of the holidays and the lights, music, and warm memories the season holds. Another dash is due to the icy chill in the air—the one that inspires brides to set up custom coffee and cocoa bars at their receptions, set out baskets full of Pashmina scarves during cocktail hour, and wrap themselves in the most beautiful furs as they wave goodbye to guests amid the glow of festive sparklers. But the most enchanting element of all? The selection of a color palette that matches the landscape we all dream of waking up to each Christmas morning—white, white, and more white, as far as the eye can see.
A winter wedding can still be trendy and uniquely yours. We’re going to look at four of the hottest trends in weddings for winter 2018.
Color Trend – Neutral and Natural
Ivory is a great neutral color for a winter wedding, but it also gives you the opportunity to add natural color. Contrast the cold outdoors with lush green foliage indoors. Ivory and green provide a great contrast and help make the reception feel warmer.
Reception Trend – Mood Lighting and Fabrics Galore
Once inside the reception hall, you want your guests to feel cozy. Mood lighting that can be attained with light strands is a great way to create a welcoming and warm environment. Fabrics are also cozy, so don’t be afraid to have decorative fabrics draped from floor to ceiling.
Invitation Trends – Natural and Eclectic
The trends in invites haven’t changed much with the season. People love the organic feeling invites that were popular in 2017. Rustic and earth-friendly invites allow you to invite in the outdoors for the wedding a little during the invitation process since you probably won’t spend much time outdoors at the actual wedding during winter. Don’t be afraid to experiment with eclectic fonts. Just be sure the proofs can be read easily by guests so there are no misunderstandings.
Food Trends – Comfort Foods
In the wintertime, you want warming, comfort food, and that trend spills over into the wedding scene. From favorites like chicken and waffles to classics like tomato soup and grilled cheese, the more the meal feels like something you would eat wrapped up on the couch in your favorite blanket the better.
