Can you believe that 2017 has already come and gone and 2018 is here? 2017 was filled with beautiful weddings and stunning wedding trends.

I've gathered a short list of my top 5 2018 Wedding Trends that I think will be popular in 2018. Take a look and feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts. And if you have any other wedding trends feel free to share those too!

Hello 2018 - We're coming for you and it'll be grand!

2018 Wedding Trends

1. Minimal to No Wedding Parties

Gone are the days when every person you know is in your wedding party. Couple's are scaling back and looking at what's important.

2. Wedding Dress Details

The trend of beautiful lace details, intricate dress designs and delicate low backs will continue from 2017-2018.

3. Color Pops!

While we still love the blush and gold trend, I am seeing more colors in weddings. People take a bolder stance and add more vibrance to their wedding colors. The 2018 Pantone Color of the year is actually Purple so I'm looking forward to seeing more of those!

4. Brunch Weddings

I don't know why, but I have a feeling people will start to host more Sunday Brunch weddings. People like to travel more and want to spend more money on their honeymoon. Brunch Weddings are the perfect compromise as they are generally a little smaller and more intimate. 

5. Destination Weddings

Combining your wedding with a vacation and satisfying your wanderlust at the same time? I think yes! At the end of 2017 I photographed a lot of destination weddings here in San Diego. So many couples that were intrigued by the beaches and beautiful weather that San Diego has to offer. Destination Weddings are so much fun for both the couple and the guests. It's a chance to explore new locations, have fun and get a tan all at the same time!
