Upcoming Wedding Trends!

Last Wednesday, I got the opportunity to attend the Perfect Wedding Guide of New Mexico's Wedding MBA Recap Breakfast at Tanoan Country Club in Albuquerque. Not only was the venue gorgeous and the food delicious, but I got to learn about upcoming wedding trends for 2018! So, in no particular order (and borrowing photos from others...) here they are:

Feathers! Feathers in bouquets, boutonnieres, as part of table centerpieces, and so on. What I love about this trend is that, if used correctly, feathers can bring an element of warmth and texture to your arrangements.

Metal Cake Toppers! Long gone are the bride and groom figurines. These cake toppers are easy to personalize, and look great on top of your cake!

Dramatic Dance Floors. This is an amazing trend that has so many possibilities! People have taken to building acrylic dance floors that can be filled or lighted in many, many different ways. The possibilities are endless!

Geometric Designs. I love these little holders, and the great news is that I found some at the Joanne's on Menaul and Wyoming when I was there over the weekend. If this is a trend you love, they're easy to find!

Copper print on Marble backgrounds. This trend is beyond elegant, and I hope to see it at some of my weddings this next year!

Bell sleeves on your wedding or bridesmaid dresses. Fashion always comes back around, and this time we're seeing the 1970s updated and elegantly incorporated.

The color Mustard. This color just pops when set against a traditional navy blue. Its a great way to bring in some color, without completely over doing it.

Mirrors and Windows are replacing chalkboards! This is an easy swap to make, for those of you who have chalkboards planned for your current weddings.

And, vintage hankie wedding invites! I love this trend, and I'm praying that some one does this for their wedding and I get to photograph it!
