Latest Wedding Trends 2018

Our top four wedding trends of 2018

We are renowned for what are arguably the finest wedding packages Northamptonshire has to offer.

Keeping this in mind, our team recently attended the National Wedding Show, where they set up a beautiful stall to show couples searching for venues what Rushton Hall has to offer.

From our decadent Orangery to the exceptional service guests receive from our staff, those in attendance of the National Wedding Show at London’s Olympia were extremely impressed with Rushton’s stand and expertise.

When they had a spare moment, our wedding team went in search of the very latest trends, and we have compiled them into this blog for you.

1. Colour palettes and aesthetics

Foliage and natural colours were prominent at the wedding show, and we feel that these would perfectly complement our Orangery.

Floral wreaths, such as the one on our stand seem to be very en vogue given the time of year and DIY nature of their creation.

Doughnut walls are a must for couples looking to inject a little fun into their day – the food doesn’t have to be overly complicated for each dish.

During our time at the show, we also discovered what is set to be the top 2019 colour trend; burgundy.

2. Floral wedding stationery

When it comes to your wedding stationery, many couples want to go for something timeless.

It’s worth remembering though that timelessness doesn’t have to be minimal!

At the show, we noticed that a lot of brides and grooms were looking at floral designs; this adds depth to the invitations, allowing your guests an insight as to what is to come at the main event.

It’s also a great way to continue your wedding flower theme throughout all stages of the wedding.

3. Rose gold geometric centrepieces

Rose gold geometric centrepieces tend to be low centrepieces with a floral display within them.

They’re great for adding a touch of luxury to the tables without taking up too much space– they’re also an interesting talking point!

Rose gold would perfectly accent 2019’s top wedding colour – burgundy.

4. Glamorous dresses

Wedding dresses were full of glitz and glamour at the National Wedding Show.

Many were on display dressed in beautiful mannequins and presented in the style of a Cinderella Ballgown.

A top trend was also lace, many designs incorporated this delicately – just a hint.

Remember, you don’t have to be led by trends; choose a dress that you feel comfortable in and that suits you!
