We can't believe it is almost March already! We are seeing trends emerge and are loving them! Tell us what do you think about these 10 trends in 2018!
1. Different menu options
Who doesn’t love good food at a wedding? Well couples are now opting for their favorites such as brunch or food trucks instead of a typical three course dinner. There are also other alternatives that are trending such as Mexican and Japanese. We love this trend!

2. Small wedding parties
We are now seeing couples go with smaller wedding parties. Only having two or three of their closest friends or family. This is a good option if you are on a tight budget!
3. Indoor weddings
We saw a lot of outdoor weddings in 2017. This year couples are opting for indoor ceremonies and receptions. Indoor venues with high ceilings and bright spaces such as museums and industrial spaces are trending this year. This makes weddings a lot cooler for the hot summers in Georgia!

4. Dogwood bouquets
Looking for something affordable and lovely? A dogwood bouquet is lush and beautiful. This very budget friendly option is making a huge appearance this spring.
5. Colored Candles
Statement candles are trending this year. Brides are opting for a romantic setting with blush candles and looking to add that splash of color to their table settings. This is a simple yet dramatic way to bring your look and feel of the wedding together.

6. Transparent Details
The open concept is not just for your house anymore! Having transparency throughout the venue is something couples are looking for in 2018. If you like clean lines this trend is for you! Floor to ceiling windows to make the space bright and airy. The use of transparent seating charts and glass tables give this trend a modern feel.

Moving on to a more industrial look this year with copper details. Copper is budget friendly and can be incorporated in so many details such as cups, chairs, and lanterns! This trend is perfect for fall weddings.
8. Hanging floral
Beautiful flower arrangements are always trending. The end of last year we started seeing hanging floral arrangements. Now they are becoming more popular this year. They are statement pieces that make your guests say wow and give a certain dynamic to your wedding.
