As we are now coming to the end of this amazing year, 2017, it is time to look to the future and all the new and exciting trends that are predicted for 2018 in the world of weddings and events.
There are many predictions for 2018, but the one I would like to enchant you with today is the use of geometric shapes using copper/metals and even marble. I am in love with this idea, since I am a person who prefers to think "out of the box" so to speak. I think we all tend to get wrapped up in the expected, the standard, the easy way of doing things. So, let's think GEOMETRIC and shake things up a bit.
With the use of geometric shapes, I immediately start thinking about terrariums. There are an abundance of beautifully designed terrariums using the geometric trends, making for fun table tops and centerpieces. The texture mostly seen in the creation of these terrariums is metal. Copper, zinc and iron are just a few that are being used to create these unique vessels.
I love, for example, how copper presents a warmth and very inviting feel to any setting, but yet looks amazing with the cool, sophisticated appearance of marble. Two opposites united for the sake of creating a beautiful table top setting for any event!
I also believe that the geometric shapes will absolutely be presented and used in ceilings as backdrops and props for weddings and events this year. Our affair with the geometric shapes will not stop on the table top!
Until next time, stay excited for the new things to come and always stay happy.
