WEDDINGS TRENDS 2018

DATE: 16.02.18

Both small, intimate ceremonies and larger, more elaborate affairs are trending for stylish destination weddings in the Greek islands for 2018. Whether you are planning  a simple, relaxed ceremony for just your immediate family & friends or are organising a lavish celebration for everyone who is special to you, both wedding styles are in vogue for this year.  For your own dream wedding in Crete, work the top trends into your wedding celebrations with a combination of the most popular themes for both your ceremony & reception celebrations. Top colour schemes for 2018 are warm corals, bright pinks, ultra violet purples and blues, as well as the eye-catching fusion of dusky rose & green, which adds a classic elegance and allows you to incorporate a note of mother nature’s most beautiful elements, with rustic greenery detail & Crete’s amazing natural light. The island’s spectacular natural landscape with its majestic mountain ranges & the Aegean sea stretching as far as the eye can see offers an amazing backdrop for your precious wedding photos & video and compliments whatever up-to-the-minute colour arrangement you decide on. Personalised matching stationery, including invitations, order of the day, menu cards and place setting cards, is also big news for stylish upcoming weddings. Top decor ideas this year are rustic features such as natural woods & floral arrangements of pretty wild flowers combined with a touch of subtle glamour to keep up the ‘wow’ factor on your big day. Cleverly positioned string lights, different sized candle lanterns and dainty tea lights in mason jars set a romantic mood and can have a huge effect on your overall wedding decor. Cake wise, taking centre stage at many fashionable weddings at the moment is the fun yet elegant macaron cake, created in eye catching shades to match your individual colour scheme. As music is the heart & soul of any wedding reception party, the most talked-about weddings of 2018 will feature first class entertainment such as a lively local band or a hip DJ, and for ‘between-dances’ refreshments, a cool cocktail bar will leave your guests super impressed. No matter what trends you follow for your destination wedding in Crete in 2018, your celebrations should be a reflection of the two of you; what you love and what makes you special as a couple. What’s important is that you enjoy every aspect of your own very special day in the sun...
