Posted By admin

2018 is quickly approaching and the trends emerging are promising a year full of fresh ideas when it comes to florals, dessert, dresses and all of the details in between.  Here is The Rutherford’s list of five top trends to watch for:

#1 Circle of Life: Oversized Wreaths

Wreaths have always been a statement piece for the holidays.  You’ve got one for most every season…  But what about your wedding day?  The big day comes but once in your life, which means the wreath should be larger than life.

Oversized wreaths are the perfect backdrop to any wedding ceremony.  Just add florals and greenery and you have a bold statement piece that is sure to set the stage for the perfect day.  Make sure to ask us about using The Rutherford’s oversized wreath for your next event!

#2 50 Shades of Gray: Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses

Chances are you’ve been a bridesmaid which means you’ve heard the whole “the best part is you can shorten it and wear it again” speech, you’ve worn a dress that is NOT your color, and you’ve certainly worn a few dresses that fit a certain body type, and that body type wasn’t yours.  Expect to see different dresses, different shades, and really happy wedding parties in 2018.

Mismatched bridesmaid dresses are entering the scene and making magazine-worthy photos!

#3 Marvel at the Marble: Marble Accents

A diamond ring isn’t the only stone making an appearance in 2018.  Marble has always been around, but it is making a serious comeback this upcoming year.  Everything from cakes and stationary to your classic bar top, adding pops of marble will create a crisp, clean, chic look for your big day.

#4 Overtaking the Cake: Creative Desserts

More and more weddings are stepping away from the typical wedding cake and moving towards a more personalized dessert experience.  We’ve seen the donut wall, but what about an ice cream sundae bar, hand pies, or a s’mores station?  Guests are sure to remember that sweet treat.

#5 Falling for foliage: Greenery

Heavy greenery at your wedding is not only easy on the budget, it also creates a fresh and unexpected look.  There are so many shades, textures, and shapes, it’s hard not to fall in love.  Not to mention the lush green colors are sure to pop against your white dress.
