5 Wedding Trends You Need to Know for 2018

While we’re in the midst of a huge summer wedding season at Beachside Dojo, we thought we’d help out those newly engaged couples, with a little wedding inspiration! Take a look at our top five wedding trends taking off in 2018!


1. Intimate Affairs
Although the ‘big, fat’ weddings will never go out of style, couples are now opting for a more intimate affair when it comes to their wedding day. So don’t be offended if you don’t get an invite! Many couples are now choosing to celebrate with immediate family only, then throwing a more casual celebration at a later date.

2. The Sleeve
Statement sleeves are back this year, hot off the designer runway! We’ll see Brides opting for the dramatic cape, a sultry off the shoulder number or even a beautiful boho bell sleeve. No matter what you’re style, there is a sleeve out there for you!

3. The Un-wedding Cake
While dessert bars and grazing tables are still the go-to, we’ll start to see the birth of the un-wedding cake trend this year. We’ve already seen the popular ‘cheese-wheel’, but you may find a few more quirky alternatives being served this year.

4. Something Blue
The notion of ‘something blue’ is nothing new to us, but be prepared to see this colour featured a lot more this year. From soft baby blue tulle gowns, to the more daring electric blue styling accents, blue is the colour to watch out for!

5. All about the Lights
Every wedding is uniquely beautiful, and there is no wrong or right when it comes to styling. But one major element to consider if your lighting. Pair back some of your style elements and focus on mood lighting. Hanging lanterns and festoon lighting is still on trend and you really never can have too many candles!
