Wedding Trends Happening in 2018

Every year sees new wedding trends emerge and this year is no different. From alternatives of traditional wedding guestbooks, to the new themes emerging, this blog is a must read for all of those looking to wed in 2018.

Stacked Rings

This year searches for stacked rings online increased by 68%. Brides are looking for alternatives to traditional wedding bands and this year they are taking a shine to multiple rings stacked together. These rings are particularly special because another ring can be added at special events or anniversaries.

Pets in your Wedding

Pets are a huge part of peoples lives, now more than ever. They are treated as members of the family in a lot of households, so why shouldn’t they be a part of your special day? This trend has been gaining popularity for a while, but is really taking over weddings this year.

Bridal Capes

Designers have been designing capes for the catwalk for the last few seasons but they are only starting to make their way up the aisle this year. A bridal cape is the perfect way to add a bit of flair and personality to your wedding gown as an alternative to traditional veils.

Rustic Themes – Desert Style

Rustic themed weddings usually take the form of farmhouse style, but this year couples are putting a twist on it, bringing desert styles into the mix. The search for southwestern weddings rose by 72% this year.

Embroidered Clothing

Embroidered dresses is one of the 2018 wedding trends that I am personally loving. Wedding dresses are being embroidered with florals and other designs, creating a folksy look. Bridesmaid’s dresses also look super trendy with similar designs, for those that don’t want their own dress embroidered but love the look.


Modern Guestbooks

Having guestbooks at weddings has been around for ages, it’s a sweet way to remember everyone who was there while you said ‘I do’. However, this year couples are taking it up a notch, bringing a twist of modernity to the tradition. Framed paintings and woodcarvings are only some of the quirky alternatives replacing it.
