Wedding Inspiration: 5 Spring 2018 Wedding Themes You Will Love

Spring is in the air! Wellll, maybe not quite yet (as we sit here and shiver while we type), but one can dream. And dreaming means looking forward and before you know it, spring will arrive and wedding season will officially kick off for 2018. The following are five spring 2018 wedding themes that are dreamy for sure. So, spring forward for a little while, and enjoy!

Downton Abbey ChairsThe Downton Abbey Vintage Wedding. Your first line of business: Bring on the luxury of the show and era by incorporating materials and items, like jacquard and brocade table runners, satin and velvet accessories, trimmings and bows galore throughout your wedding, says Downton Abbey Weddings & Events (yes, you can indeed hire them to plan your wedding theme!). A Downton Abbey wedding theme means you can play dress up everywhere — don a tiara (just like Lady Mary) and a gorgeous lace gown perhaps; have a multi-tiered classic ivory cake; arrive in a horse-drawn carriage. Oh, yes! You’re going to have a blast planning this one…

Great Gatsby InspirationsThe Great Gatsby 1920s Wedding. This 1920s’ look has been hot-to-trot for the last two years (Thanks to that film!)(read our Wedding Style Trend: The Roaring 1920s here) and doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. There’s something so romantic about the formality of this time. A The Great Gatsby-themed wedding must include metallics — either mixtures of gold and silver or pick one — as well as white gloves, crystal, candles everywhere to give off that beautiful glow, lots and lots of bubbly, and a soft and unstructured gown for the bride and a tuxedo for the groom.

Rustic Outdoor WeddingRustic-Elegant Backyard Wedding. Who needs to rent a venue when you have access to a family or friend’s backyard that looks like this one above? The key to pulling off elegant-meets-rustic = all-white décor (save the greenery in the centrepieces and the brown Chiavari chairs). Make sure to have great linens and tablecloths to elevate the look of each table in the rustic backyard setting. And add some interest up in the air — whether it’s lanterns, like the ones above, or twinkle lights strewn across the trees.

Rose Gold Wedding CakeRose Gold Wedding. This 2018 wedding trend has Party Princess written all over it. It’s just sooooo darn girly and lovely. The wedding is all about you after all, right? We bet your groom won’t mind the pretty-in-pink-ness because you are radiant and so happy about it. With a rose gold wedding theme, go heavy on the saturated colours and don’t be afraid to layer them. It’s also a stunning look when paired with white.
