7 New Wedding Trends That Break the Rules


Good news, rule breakers. The wedding trends for 2018 are all about letting your personality shine.

Untraditional is the new traditional, to create a meaningful and personal experience inspired by—you. Here are the top seven trends we’ve spotted.

Say yes to statement dresses
When it comes to bridal style, non-traditional wedding dresses still rule the aisle, now more than ever. Color and pattern will make a major statement in 2018, from soft pastels to floral patterns. Bridesmaids dresses are also having a non-traditional moment, especially in bold black and white.

Sprinkle a confetti of polka dots
Nothing says ‘party’ quite like polka dots.

This festive print is popping up everywhere from shoes and cakes to socks and bowties. Even a scattering of pearls on your dress can create the illusion of textural dots.

Remix your bridal party
New titles of honor to have and to hold: Groomswoman and Bridesman. Include your bestie on your side even if they don’t fit the traditional definition. In 2018, it’s all about having your most special mix of people standing up with you.

Let the groom take the cake
From elaborate golf scenes to an ode to his favorite band, over-the-top groom cakes are a fun focal point this year. Your wedding photographer will have a field day capturing the edible artistry.

Color your world dramatic
Kick up the drama in bold hues of dark purple and midnight blue—equally glam and mysterious. Could be taking a cue from the 2018 Pantone color of the year: ultra violet.

Bloom with a creative bouquet
Think beyond calla lilies for wedding inspiration. The most popular flowers popping up in bridal bouquets are vibrant dahlias, soft peonies and earthy sprigs of eucalyptus.

Let your hair down
Updo? Down do? This year, it’s all about the half do. Boho hairstyles are still on trend, with long, loose waves, natural texture and the growing popularity of brides wearing their hair half-up, half-down.

We can’t to see how you make your day as one-of-a-kind as the two of you.
