Back in (Navy)

Instead of traditional black for formal weddings, we’re expected to see navy as the new staple hue. This means suits, bridesmaids dresses and tablescape decor. Looks like black needs to up its game!

Suspended Flowers

Hanging floral arrangements are all the rage right now. Whether it’s a ceiling of roses or a suspended whimsical arrangement, this trend will surely take over the wedding scene in 2018. An advantage to sky-high flowers is that centerpieces can be simple and understated. A few candles and a vase with a few types of flowers is all you need to complete the room!

Woodland Details

The rustic, woodland-chic wedding look is not going away. Conveniently, Wayfarers Chapel provides the perfect aesthetic for your ceremony. A glass chapel amidst towering trees and overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the chapel is ideally situated. The trend this year is for greenery to overshadow florals, and for the color green to be the star of the wedding palette. Incorporate wooden details in the seating details, invitations and arrangements.

Colorful Candles

Make a statement with subtle hints of color on your tablescapes. Swap out ivory and white dinner candles for soft pink and blue-hued ones. This decor detail will add a vintage feel to the overall reception design.
