2017 has definitely been, and will continue to be, the year for the earthy, rustic wedding. The Quintessentially Wedding’s Team have seen barn houses come alive with tumbling flower garlands, long trestle tables adorned with weathered wood platters and daisies delicately placed amongst simplistic table settings. This is a theme that is ever growing in popularity and we absolutely love it.
But 2018 is going to see weddings take on something a little more magical. A breathtaking engagement of ‘fairytale romance’ meets ‘the unimaginable’; subtle madness in an elegant display of the whacky and wonderful. Here at Quintessentially, we predict 2018 to be the year of the Whimsical Wedding.
This is a step into the enchantment of Alice and Wonderland, without the ‘in-your-face’ and ‘over-the-top’ dramatics. Think charming trinkets hanging from trees, eye-catching food stations and creative balloon displays. Quintessentially just can’t wait to see the creativity unfold.
Romance certainly isn’t dead in our second top trend for the next bridal season. It’s the return of the secret gardens, petal-covered aisles and twinkling fairy lights looped around every corner. The Sheer Romance Wedding theme will bring with it heart-melting candle-lit ceremonies, small crystal chandeliers strung to low-hanging branches, and the lovely feeling of intimacy and seclusion. We can already feel the butterflies in our stomachs.
