The current trend for 2018 is overwhelming in popularity: purples and metallic are leading the way for wedding styling this year with a huge increase in brides opting for this colour scheme. The real question is how can you create your very own vision but at the same time, keep your wedding styling on-trend for 2018? This is what we are here to answer, among other questions you may have, as this blog is all about the wedding styling items you can use and incorporate to create an on-trend 2018 wedding.
Wedding centrepiece hire
The main part of wedding styling is the wedding centrepiece, it’s a main focus for your guests as they enjoy the wedding breakfast, speeches and socialise with family members and friends. Your wedding centrepiece should be a focal point because it plays a main part in the entire design of the room as guests enter your wedding reception. To keep your wedding centrepiece on trend for 2018 opt for shades of purple in your flowers with silver or gold vases and votives filled with tea lights for a romantic feel. Take a look at some wedding centrepieces we have done in the past.
These wedding centrepieces use artificial flower arrangements which you would never be able to tell in the pictures: it just goes to show how artificial flowers are just as effective as the real deal at only a fraction of the cost! In fact our wedding centrepieces are all bespoke to suit everyone’s individual needs and the cost per table includes the artificial flower arrangement.
Lantern hire is extremely popular for wedding styling, with it being one of the first things a bride to be thinks of when it comes to her wedding styling. Some lanterns are used to line a wedding aisle, whilst others are a wedding centrepiece, and some are scattered around in the outdoor space to light up the night sky. Lantern hire is so versatile and sets a perfect romantic setting which works for weddings. If you’re trying to incorporate purple and metallic then why not use large silver lanterns to line your wedding aisle, or use artificial purple flowers as a bed of petals for a centrepiece? Have a look at some of our previous lantern hires.
Wedding backdrop Hire
There are so many different bespoke ways to set up your wedding backdrop, by using coloured organza drapes, uplighters, flowers and tie backs. Most brides like to keep this part of their wedding styling simple and stick to a starlight backdrop, however your wedding backdrop should be statement piece, an eye-catcher as your guests enter a room – so get creative! Why not use a starlight backdrop but add some purple coloured draping and silver or gold tie backs? If you’re working with a well-established furniture hire company they should be able to create a work of art for you! Just look at some of the wedding backdrops we can offer.
Wedding furniture hire
It’s easy to forget the basics when it comes to your wedding styling but don’t forget your chair hire, table hire and linen also play a huge part. If you’re working in light, open and airy spaces, black chairs or deep gold chairs bring the space in more whereas limewash and ice chairs will keep the spacious feel to the room. The colour of your Chiavari chair will play a big part in setting the theme and tone of the design. White linen is on its way out with ivory and colours making a comeback. Coloured linen warms up a room and the atmosphere. Charger plates and rimmed glassware may seem an extra unneeded accessory but plays a huge part in the look of your table design. If you want to create the 2018 trend, why not try silver beaded charger plates with a silver rimmed Champagne glass and purple napkins?
