The world of interior design and styling often influences the wedding industry, with trends having an impact on the decor, details, colour palettes and themes that couples choose for their celebration. As Luxury Wedding Planners in London, we are always keeping a close eye on what’s hot within home interiors. Today we’re talking about the top interior design trends you can expect to see throughout 2018 and the different ways you can incorporate them into your design-led and modern wedding.
One of our serious style crushes, metallic accents hit the interior design scene a couple of years ago and it looks like they are set to stay in the spotlight. From cool silver to warm bronze, metallic accents can transform your home, adding a touch of modern luxe to your space.
Ramp up the glam factor by incorporating golden details into your wedding day. Gold is the epitome of decadence and there are lots of divine ways to give your celebration a touch of luxury. Showcase your sense of style by using gilded vases to hold beautiful blooms, gold tone cutlery for your place settings, or modern furniture with metallic features.
Planning a modern city wedding? Add an industrial edge to your day by using lots of unfinished brass or copper decorations. From hanging installation lights to exposed metal work already part of the venue’s construction, there are so many ways to add a contemporary gritty vibe to your wedding day while maintaining that luxurious feel.
Fringing has made a serious comeback this year and we can’t get enough of it – it’s cool, stylish and a great way to make a statement. From scatter cushions to lampshades, rugs to throws, we can’t get enough of this style. Take this trend into your wedding day by opting for a fashion-forward wedding dress with fringe edging. You could even rock a pair of heels with fringing detailing or a luxury bag with fringing – the choice is yours!
Botanicals are big news in the interior design world and this trend is undeniably beautiful. From botanical-embossed wallpapers to delicate botanical embroidery, it adds an instant dash of elegance to any space. Give your style-led celebration a botanical vibe by donning a gown with floral appliqué – Monica L'huiller and Marchesa Bridal have a number of show-stopping designs that will leave you swooning.
Florals can also effortlessly transform any wedding venue and they’re the perfect way to add elegance, luxury and beauty to your event. From metallic archways adorned with dramatic blooms to raised installations entwined with the prettiest flowers you could imagine, there is something quite enchanting about using botanicals throughout your day.
Often overlooked due to their retro reputation, plush velvets are working their way back into interior design and styling. Fusing modern trends with a vintage vibe, velvet materials are a guaranteed way to add nothing but luxury to your home. Scatter cushions, sofas, armchairs and even lighting – the options really are endless. Incorporate this into your design-led wedding by creating a stylish lounge area at your venue using velvet armchairs, cushions and decorations. You could also tie a long velvet ribbon round the stems of your bouquet to give your bridal outfit a hint of opulence. Velvet suits are also one of the hottest trends for grooms in 2018. Focus on colour palettes such as plum, burgundy, navy and emerald.
