Something old, something new. Something borrowed, something blue. Something textured, and something clear, too.

With wedding season in full swing, here at Cohas we’ve been watching this year’s hottest trends. Clear wedding signs, textured place cards and settings, and balloons seem to take the (wedding) cake this year.

What the Experts are Saying

Wedding experts and planners agree that translucent decor and creative place cards are going to be popular. Martha Stewart Weddings includes these two trends in their list of 13 New Wedding Trends to Watch for in 2018, According to Planners. Jacin Fitzgerald, a Georgia planner, said, “The new year will weave creative place cards into the event’s aesthetic. They’ll be edible or made with unexpected mediums…”

Textured and unique place cards are one of 2018’s hottest wedding trends.

Additionally, couples are looking to incorporate clear and translucent designs in their weddings. Allison Jackson, of Pineapple Productions, also told Martha Stewart Weddings, “couples are opting for the modern, architectural, and clean design translucence offers. Clear tents, venues surrounded by floor to ceiling windows, glass tables, and Lucite invitations and place cards are all examples of the see-through details to come.”

BRIDES Magazine also reported clear wedding signs, textured place cards, and other similar trends to watch for. They spoke with some of the top wedding planners for their take. Jove Meyers, of Jove Meyers Events, said he’d love to see mini escort cards disappear. “I know we can think outside the box to come up with something fun, unique, and interactive,” he said. He also sees acrylic being the biggest decor trend of the year. “And when you say acrylic, most people think of clear acrylic but I think couples will explore clear and colorful acrylic in fun new ways—from using it the escort card display, on the tables for menus, or to style flowers with (or on). They may also use it for the ceremony archway or to elevate the flowers on their table without blocking the view of their friends,” said Meyers.
