With 2017 now firmly behind us and a whole new year of exciting wedding videography ahead of us, the team here at Drangan Video have been taking a look at the wedding trends that are set to make a huge impact here in Ireland. In this blog post we are going to take a look at what’s hot in 2018 and hopefully give you some inspiration for your very own big day.
Remember, if you’re looking for a wedding video with a difference, Drangan Video will be only delighted to travel to your chosen destination, whether you’re getting married in Cork, Waterford, Kilkenny or Tipperary. Give us a call at any time and ask for Eamon, who will always be happy to help in any way he can.
• Bringing the outside in
2018 is all about celebrating nature and bringing the outside in on your big day. Experts are saying that this trend is great for those who have an active lifestyle and want to share their love of the outdoors with their guests. This trend will mean hiring potted plants or growing your own on the lead up to the big day, and will be sure to bring something special to the occasion.
• Pastels are out!
Over the past number of years we have seen brides revert to pastel colours for their bridal bouquets, however all that is set to change in 2018. Think plums, deep reds and burgundy’s, these darker more moody colours will make a big visual impact.
• Dance floors with a difference
Couples are opting for dance floors that make a statement at their venue of choice, think marble, think illuminated, think disco!
• Surprise your guests with edible stationery
Yes you heard us right, edible stationery is now a thing. This trend surfaced in the US over the past few years and has now made its way to Irish shores.
• Dessert Tables
Rather than serving the dessert to your guests in the traditional manner, consider setting up a dessert table with all of the unique sweet treats that are now on offer. Doughnuts, freak shakes, macaroons, ice-creams and puddings will have your guests feeling like royalty.
Copper is the go to colour of 2018 and you can be assured that this trend will be making its way to Ireland over the coming months. Accessorising your centrepieces or table settings with copper elements will give an impression that is hard to beat.
Did they ever really go out of fashion?? Pearls are set to make a huge comeback on the 2018 bridal scene and we can understand why. There’s nothing quite as elegant as freshwater pearls, however there are cheaper alternatives that look just as good. Use them in your bouquet, jewellery, headpiece or on your table décor for that touch of elegance.
Over the next few months we will be looking at other trends that emerge as the year rolls on and we would love to hear from you if you have discovered a new wedding trend.
