NYFC’s Best Wedding Trends for 2018 ~ Dramatic Statements of Texture and Color…and Oh, the After Party!
Laser Cut Linens
Natural and rustic has segued to a more clean and dramatic trend for wedding decor. We are fond of the laser cut, modern lace, and textured linen overlays that add subtle drama to the table decor.

Deeper hues in bridesmaids dresses, floral designs, and decorative accents add dramatic flair. Popular now are shades of wine, lilac, lavender and mauve. This Verandas Beach House bride incorporated these hues into her bouquets and bridesmaids dresses.

Living Bars & Potted Plants
Embellished bars with a modern take on lattice use laser cut wood trellises with climbing vines and greenery. These beverage counters punctuate event decor in a naturally beautiful way. Potted plants make a pretty aisle path and can be repurposed or gifted after your event.

Indoor & Outdoor Wedding Venues
Couples are are intermingling their wedding day starting with an outdoor ceremony in a gorgeous, natural setting then moving indoors for the festivities. Private estates and modern lofts are taking the place of traditional ballrooms.

All About the After Party
When the formalities and treasured traditions end, the after party begins! Shoes and ties come off, music rules and so do late night snacks to keep guests’ energy going strong. The most popular late night wedding food trends now are pancake bars, burger sliders, french fries with flavored salts, cookies and milk, create your own ice cream sundae, and assorted retro-candy stations.
