Happy 2018, everyone! At Magic Function Hire we’re very excited about the year ahead; the 2018 wedding décor landscape is looking very inspiring and we cannot wait to assist Mpumalanga’s fashion-forward bridal parties to tailor beautiful events. Here are a few of our favourite wedding trends that are set to make a splash in 2018:
Candles as the sole focal point
There is a very interesting shift in terms of table décor that has cropped up of late. With areas like the Western Cape experiencing a crippling drought, many brides choose to adorn their tables exclusively with candles, instead of using it as an addition to flowers. We love it! Taste-making trailblazers Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen and Jackie Burger recently hosted a Salon 58 gathering that was decorated with 1000 candles along a single table, and it was exquisite! You can dress a table similarly by using candles of different shapes and sizes, as well as a variety of interesting candle holders and candelabra.
Dark linens & bold prints
While white linen table cloths will always remain a classic, 2018 is al about the darker linens and bold prints. Many bridal parties are electing to cover their tables in shades of midnight blue, aubergine and even emerald. Others are choosing bold prints like oversized botanicals to set the tone for their day, with plain white crockery and some metallic cutlery in gold or copper to add a hint of glamour.
We all know that a wedding has a look and feel, but now you go above and beyond to create a seamless event that even include its own signature smell! Some rides are choosing to decorate their tables with fragrant herbs like lavender, thyme, rosemary and mint that create a wonderful olfactory ambience; while others choose to burn essential oils like bergamot, sweet orange or rose geranium in diffusers at certain key spots throughout their reception venue. This adds a lovely note that really tries an event together.
