Lesner Inn’s Annual Open House: Featuring 2018 Wedding Trends
Just like fashion, wedding trends are ever changing & sometimes it is hard to know if something is hot or “so 2017”. The team at Lesner Inn wants to save you the legwork & give you the top trends for this coming season, straight from us in the know! We were able to showcase many of these trends at our open house on January 28th, but in case you missed it, here are some inspiring photos to show why you should incorporate these trends into your upcoming wedding!
No longer for just the kitchen & bathroom, marble is making its way into the wedding scene in a big way! From chargers to floral vases, there are many ways to incorporate marble into your tablescape. You can even break out of the box & incorporate marbled swirls into fondant for your cake or backgrounds for your invitations! We decided to use a marbled linen from Waterford Event Rentals, & even had marbled menu cards made from Paper Dolls Design for the place settings!
These breakfast treats aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Couples began to offer doughnuts as an economical dessert option a few years ago & it is still going strong. Whether you display these on a doughnut wall or on personalized platters, guests will go nuts for sugary sweets! Add edible glitter as a sweet & sparkly treat!
Rose bouquets may be a classic, but florals with bold & exciting colors are being seen more often in the wedding scene! Add a pop of color with a protea or ranunculus bloom & let your flowers do the talking! Winter berries were added to this bouquet from Wandering Petal for a touch of something unique!
Deep Reds & Romantic Tones
For that romantic feel, you can’t go wrong with a deep red to compliment natural tones. We have seen this color pop up in linens & bridesmaid dress options & can’t get enough of it. We complimented our marbled & gray linens with burgundy napkins & bold red florals!
We have to say that this is our favorite so far. Remember the trendy wooden welcome signs of the past? In 2018, you should be welcoming your guests into your wedding with a transparent acrylic welcome sign or mailing them a modern laser engraved clear invitation. We used transparent acrylic stands to hold up decorative manzanitas, but another great idea is using a transparent table for your sweetheart or cake tables. You can even spice these up by putting uplighting underneath of them!
Coppers & Golds
This might be linked to the Moscow Mule craze, but we don’t hate it! Copper flatware, copper cake toppers, copper jewelry, copper table numbers, copper chargers…the opportunities are endless! Of course, gold tones in general aren’t going anywhere!!
Wreaths & Hanging Décor
Not just your mama’s door décor anymore! We are seeing so many floral hoops & wreaths, adorning wedding arches, entranceways, & even see them suspended above tables. These can be full of simple greenery or they can have elaborate floral focal points. We love what Wandering Petal did with this hanging piece over our head table!
We are so happy that we were able to showcase many of these 2018 trends at our open house! With the help of some of our favorite vendors, were were able to demonstrate what a real wedding with us would look like! As always, we would love to meet any of you newly engaged couples! Whether you’re local or live across the country we hope to have the opportunity to be a part of your wedding day!
