2018 Wedding Trend Watch

, ,

Hey there all you Wedding enthusiasts! Thanks for stopping by the HC Blog to check out all the 2018 trends. The year is flying by and we are already into February so lets chat design! We could go on and on about what the industry is saying is trending, but we thought… Lets add a little of what we LOVE mixed in with whats Hot for the 2018!



Of course, the 2018 Pantone Color of the year was announced, ultra violet, but do not shy away from all the other shades of purple. Looking to floral’s and galactic for inspiration when selecting the blue and purple hues. We also love catching the stars on the Red carpet to see what color dresses they select and they had a lot to say about 2018 with their selections. Loving those bright yellows and Monte Carlo Reds!

POP– We also love catching the stars on the Red carpet to see what color dresses they select and they had a lot to say about 2018 with their selections. Loving those bright yellows and Monte Carlo Reds!

And that’s right Neon is back in action and in more ways then just color. Do not let a little Neon color scare you, and let it put a blast in your day

Rose Gold– still around and staying through spring, that rose gold has found new ways to make an appearance whether its linens, flatware, or your hair its finding its making a subtle statement.


So what to look at for inspiration, welp look at it all! Movies, Fashion, interior design, but know the Wedding Industry has a great way of capturing the trends before they are even trends. Keep your eye out on the trending reports, but here is what we have seen;

Celestial: There is a great increase of Sci Fi movies being released this quarter and we cant help but notice the trends are pulling some pieces from these flicks. Looking at Galactic design to pull those colors and the patterns. Science is IN and you heard it here first so all those SCI FI junkies its your time to shine!

Floral PrintsStill seeing a great number of floral patterns making their way through the season, but with a Glamorous twist. Seeing a lot of Allusion gowns with floral lace and a Avante Garde approach.

Sleek + ModernThe Sleek style is making its way on the fore front and we are loving it, between the hair styles and large Bowed dresses here is a couple of our top picks and how to incorporate this look


Neon: We had are heading back to the 90’s on this one and can not wait to fully enjoy this. With neon signs to glow on your invitation its creating such a Fun ambiance for a less formal affair.

Geometric Shapes: We know this has been seen in lanterns and centerpieces in 2017,  but as great trends always do its reinventing itself and we are seeing more circle shapes and geo used in signage, ceremony, plates, etc. Check out a couple of these images and think about what shape you love the most!

So there it is ladies and Gentleman our favorite MUST SEE elements for 2018. While we could spend another 3 hours listing ALL of what we love this seems to be a good summary to start with, and who knows we may be back after Spring for another round, Hint Hint.

Falling In Place

, , ,

Its Fall Ya’ll ! What do you love most about this time of year?

Gathering comes to mind for me! With all the festivities that happen October through December they all seem to be wrapped around sharing a meal and gathering together in celebration and gratitude. Such grateful hearts joining in one room/table. Everything Falls right into place. Speaking of place…. We love a good place setting. Every small detail that finds a home and heart to reach. So lets chat about what is trending for Fall table scapes.

  1. Florals: while floral’s are always a go-to for the best table topper, this year we are seeing changes in colored/textured vases everything from stone, black, concrete, to hammered copper. Search your local peddlers mall to find some vintage or second hand and don’t be afraid of a little spray paint!
  2. Candles : We love ourselves some candle lite, but this time switch the white sticks for a pop of color, whether its taupe or burgundy you can swing by World Market , Target, or even HomeGoods and find these sweet additions.
  3. Flatware: We have seen such a wonderful new selection of flatware and we are in fork heaven! Find a theme for your party,event, or wedding and try and match the tone with your rentals . Don’t be afraid to add BLACK.  Here are Some links to websites with the hottest and newest items:
    1. http://aorents.com/catalog/flatware-accessories/tidbit-cocktail
    2. https://www.worldmarket.com/product/rose–gold-twig–flatware-collection.do?sortby=ourPicks&from=fn
    3. https://www.pier1.com/arbor-golden-20-piece-flatware-set/3075241.html?cgid=silverware-utensils#nav=left&start=1
  4. Textiles/Fabric: One thing that truly will help create your table scene is the fabrics you select. We are seeing a lot of Plaids, Velvet, Chunky Knit and always linen this year. One great way to incorporate these textures besides just by a  table linen is using blankets, rugs, and/or scarfs. throw these items on the chairs, stools, or table top to add dimension and texture
  5. Nix the flowers and for a cheaper cost option go to your local food market and snag some seasonal fruits or vegetables that add some fall color tones .
  6. Find earthy and natural elements to add on the plate with a hand made menu card or name card ie Leaf, twig, fruit, stones etc.

So let everything Fall into place on your table and check out some more inspiration pictures below !
